20.Sep.2012 Cinnamon Burns Fat and Has Many Other Health Benefits

Did you know that cinnamon burns fat? Well, not directly, but it does in an indirect way.


I’ve learned so much from Mike Geary, a personal trainer and nutritional counselor, and he mentioned that cinnamon is one of the most overlooked, but healthiest spices in the universe.

He calls it a fat burning spice because you can use it daily to fight stubborn belly fat.

How?

Although cinnamon has dozens of health benefits….

• controls blood sugar levels
• helps maintain insulin sensitivity
• a VERY powerful antioxidant
• may have antibacterial and antifungal properties
• and dozens of other benefits

….the main benefit that will help you to get leaner is through it’s strong effect on controlling blood sugar levels in your body.

In a study published in 2003 in the medical journal, Diabetes Care, groups were split into people taking 1, 3, or 6 grams of cinnamon per day in capsule form (the equivalent of approx 1/4th to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon).

The results of the study showed that all 3 amounts of cinnamon reduced fasting blood glucose levels by 18-29% after 40 days.

Cinnamon can also increase insulin sensitivity, which essentially means that it is helping your body to control blood sugar while simultaneously allowing your body to produce less insulin.

You want to produce less insulin because chronically high insulin levels can make your body pack on the blubber. This is the way that cinnamon burns fat indirectly.

Get More Cinnamon

A great way to see gain fat burning benefits from cinnamon is to use it every day with your meals. You can put it in smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, on apples, or anything else you can think of. Or you could purchase cinnamon capsules and take one before your main meals.

This could help to control blood sugar and insulin response from your meals and thereby control your appetite and cravings throughout the day… hence, helping you to lose body fat more effectively over time.

So now you can see that not only is cinnamon a powerful antioxidant that can help you stay youthful longer, it can also help you to control blood sugar and get a leaner body!
