Brad Hoppmann investigates a new study indicating the effectiveness of cinnamon on lowering blood sugar. Controlling rising blood sugar gets more difficult with age even in healthy people, but eating just a half teaspoon of cinnamon a day can go a long way in helping mediate spikes in blood sugar throughout the day. It’s a tasty and affordable way to safeguard your health.
- A healthy diet and active lifestyle are the two most important factors to keeping healthy blood sugar levels. But there are ways to bolster this process even further, my favorite being cinnamon.
- For example, just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day has been shown to significantly reduce blood sugar levels and triglycerides.
- Another study found that this spice increased glucose metabolism by about 20 times. This would significantly improve your ability to regulate your blood sugar.
“Over time, if left unchecked, high blood sugar levels will leave you with some of the most undesirable diseases known to man.”
