5 Healing Properties of Cinnamon
Prevention of Diabetes
Today’s modern research results confirm that cinnamon lowers blood sugar as well as bad cholesterol. Specifically, in one of the studies I cam accross, the patients consuming cinnamon showed significant stabilization of their blood sugar (by 30%) comparing to the patients who did not use cinnamon as a part of their treatment. Cinnamon also supports insulin production which then helps transform sugars into energy. If you suffer from diabetes or high cholesterol levels, then cinnamon tea is a wonderful remedy.
