Cinnamon Used to Help Diabetes

Cinnamon is a spice that has been used for medicinal properties since ancient times in ancient Egypt, China, and India. It is now grown in many countries all over the world. Recent studies show that cinnamon can help to keep blood sugar levels stable by enhancing insulin sensitivity and allowing more glucose in the blood to be used. Keeping blood sugar levels stable decreases sugar highs and lows, which may cause a diabetic to need less insulin. Cinnamon increases the ability of fat cells in diabetics to respond to insulin and there is an increase of glucose removal. The spice contains a substance called MHCP that is believed to be the reason for its benefits. Type II diabetes is a condition that causes cells to lose their ability to respond to insulin, which is the hormone that tells the body to remove excess glucose in the bloodstream.

Cinnamon can be bought in powdered form at most food shops and can be added to milkshakes or fruit juices to make it easier to drink. It is recommended that type II diabetics should take a quarter to one full teaspoon of cinnamon per day. Even a teaspoon of the spice each day might help to prevent the onset of diabetes.
