More information about Cinnamon
Evidence has been mounting in recent years concerning cinnamon's effects on maintaining a healthy blood sugar balance. In one study cinnamon was noted to reduce fasting blood sugar levels as well as triglycerides and LDL cholesterol in individuals with compromised blood sugar control. Another study confirmed that cinnamon had moderate effects in reducing fasting blood sugar levels in patients with poor glycaemic control. Some researchers believe that these effects may stem from cinnamon's ability to enhance insulin sensitivity which in turn may improve glucose tolerance. This theory is based on the observation that cinnamon extract increases phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase activity in the insulin signalling pathway, thus potentiating insulin action.
Moreover, cinnamon's effects may not only be confined to people with existing blood sugar problems. In a recent trial the effects of cinnamon were assessed on the postprandial glucose response and rate of gastric emptying in healthy subjects. The results showed that cinnamon significantly delayed gastric emptying and lowered postprandial glucose response, compared to placebo. That is, it would seem that cinnamon may be of value for supporting glucose metabolism in healthy individuals as well.
