Importance Of Cinamon In Diabetes Treatment

Did you know that research has found that cinnamon can help in both the prevention and regulation of diabetes? Well, that is good news especially to diabetics who carry their syringes with them wherever they go. It has been a common traditional herb used for its medicinal and spice value.

Cinnamon is commonly extracted from the inner bark of its tree for medicinal and culinary value that it has had over the centuries. Traditionally, it proved beneficial in the remedy of infections such as colds, diarrhea, indigestion and congestion.

Scientists have found out that it contains antioxidants which not only reduces the high risks of chronic diseases, but also help in slowing down the aging process. Of greater importance is that this plant can indeed fight diabetes.

If as a natural herb it used to work in the olden days, it is very possible for it to still contain its curative elements. The plant helps to activate body enzymes which in turn stimulate cell receptors for the body to respond to insulin more effectively.

What does this bark of a tree contain that makes it so effective? Cinnamon comprises such nutrients and elements such as calcium, iodine, copper, iron, manganese, phosphorous, zinc, vitamins, potassium and chromium. The above nutrients become very essential in controlling diabetes.

Various studies conducted by medical research teams have found out that the components in the herb and spice work very effectively in reducing blood glucose levels. In fact, blood glucose is not only lowered, but there is an increased antioxidant activity in the body.

Other studies have also revealed that cinnamon supplementation helps in reducing the body’s overall fat percentage. It is important that anyone wishing to either prevent or control diabetes takes cinnamon between and after meals. All diabetes complications will become history.

And so what is the prescription? For those of us who are insulin resistant, different studies have opened the way for us. They show that taking cinnamon daily is able to improve the body’s insulin sensitivity as well as blood glucose control. Even though some of this research has not been published, the overall outlook from a medical perspective is that indeed, it is very beneficial to diabetes.

Diabetes treatment using cinnamon is what all these facts presented indicated. For those of us who need to control our blood glucose levels, there is an alternative solution that lies in the use of this herb. You might just as well treat other ailments in the body like the so common cold or indigestion.
