Cinnamon on Coffee

It’s no secret that type II diabetes and obesity are on the rise in the US, so you too may be on the lookout for any type of natural remedy to treat high blood sugar. Fortunately, Natural News revealed that a common spice like cinnamon can regulate blood sugar by stimulating your body to process glucose more effectively.

This is one great reason to sprinkle a dash of cinnamon in your coffee grounds before brewing to add a depth of flavor to your cup of Joe and keep your blood sugar regulated.

Several clinical trials have proven the moderate effect that cinnamon in the diet can have on regulating blood sugar. In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2007, it showed that adding 6 g of cinnamon to rice pudding noticeably lowered blood glucose levels after dinner.

Other studies showed similar results in that cinnamon helped study participants with type II diabetes lower levels of hemoglobin A1C in their bloodstream, which is an indicator of high blood sugar. Cinnamon is also full of antioxidants to protect the body from free radical damage that causes disease. Additionally, it has high levels of calcium, iodine, copper, phosphorous, iron, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, and protective anti-inflammatory benefits.

Remember to sprinkle a dash of cinnamon in your cup of coffee this morning to regulate your blood sugar and protect from type II diabetes!
