As we all know, mostly we have used cinnamon as a spice in our deserts. But, not many know that its usage is recommended for the diabetics. It is good to add the cinnamon in diabetic’s every-day diet, because it has anti diabetic effects. That means that cinnamon reduces the levels of glucose in the blood.
Scientist have been saying that this spice has mimetic features. That means that cinnamon copies or it acts and reacts in the same way with insulin. Insulin is produced by our body naturally, but when there is not enough, cinnamon can replace it because of the mimetic reaction.
A substance called methyl-hydroxychalcone was found in cinnamon in a scientific research by a university in California. This substance proofs the diabetic thing we said before. It has anti diabetic effect, and at the same time reduces the levels of glucose in blood. Glucose is the main cause of excessive weight gain: if we didn’t have glucose, we wouldn’t put on weight. If we wanted to lose weight, we would have to reduce the glucose levels. The key advantage of cinnamon is that it contains the substance that reduces glucose, since it is very similar to insulin.
Another thing that cinnamon can do is treat all types of fungi, because of its anti-fungal properties. It is enough to take two tablespoons a day, so let’s see what the best way to use in properly is.
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon powder
- 1 tablespoon of whole oats
- 1 glass of water
Not only it is easy to prepare it, but you will see results in a very short time. You need to liquefy each of the ingredients very well, without straining them. It is necessary to take this extract twice a day for no more than 15 days. You should stick to this because cinnamon could affect the intestinal flora if you take it for a very long time.
