Let’s Talk: Cinnamon

When you think of cinnamon, thank blood sugar. It’s one of the best things you could add to your diet to improve insulin sensitivity and glycemic control. A review study from the Journal of diabetes obesity in metabolism looked at cinnamons affect on fasting blood glucose in type two diabetic’s and found reductions ranging  from 10 to 30%.

One easy way to add cinnamon to your diet is to put it in your coffee or tea. This will easily put you in the 1 to 3 g (1-2 teaspoons) per day range where these benefits lie. It’s also a great spice for adding to other foods. The ever popular sweet potato in cinnamon combo will light up your taste buds without lighting up your blood sugar. 😜 👍🏻
