CINNAMON

• Healthy Blood Sugar

• Healthy Cholesterol

• Healthy Blood Pressure

 

Cinnamon is considered royalty among the healing herbs. For thousands of years, it has been prized by kings, sought after in countless explorations and fought over in battles. Traditionally, this peerless spice was valued as a captivating fragrance and a potent natural preservative. Today, researchers seek new value in its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic effects. These properties make cinnamon a powerful ally in the pursuit of metabolic health, including benefits to blood sugar, insulin resistance, circulatory and heart health, and neurological health.

METABOLIC SYNDROME

Metabolic Syndrome is the term used to describe a complex of troubling physical symptoms including obesity, insulin resistance, high blood sugar, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels.

Individually, each of these symptoms can present a health challenge. Together, they can hugely increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

How can we lower blood sugar, lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure? There is extensive research into cinnamon’s use addressing the complications of Metabolic Syndrome.

BLOOD SUGAR

Managing blood sugar is a fundamental aspect of managing good health. It is key to preventing the symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome.

Uncontrolled high blood sugar can lead
in the short term to:

  • uncontrolled appetite,
  • poor dietary habits, and
  • obesity;

in the intermediary term to:

  • high triglycerides, and
  • sub-optimal cholesterol levels;

in the longer term to:

  • high blood pressure, and
  • rampant inflammation in the body.

Beyond that, severe negative consequences can manifest as:

  • diabetes,
  • heart disease, and
  • cancer.

Each negative symptom begets a cascade of additional negative symptoms, all starting with blood sugar levels that remain abnormally elevated.  

Cinnamon is one of the most effective healing herbs you can add to your diet to improve insulin sensitivity and glycemic control. Studies have shown that cinnamon leads to a meaningful decrease in blood sugar levels.

Cinnamon is thought to increase insulin sensitivity and combat insulin resistance which helps keep blood sugar levels balanced and healthy. For this reason, cinnamon has been studied as a possible form of natural support for diabetes.

CHOLESTEROL

Cinnamon has been shown in numerous studies to markedly improve blood lipids and serum cholesterol levels. It helps raise HDL (good) cholesterol while also helping to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides.

BLOOD PRESSURE

This is especially important for good circulatory and heart health. Studies have also shown dietary supplementation with cinnamon can also lead to significant fall in systolic blood pressure- another essential factor for positive metabolic conditioning and overall good health.

METABOLIC HEALTH

Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels is the first step on a lifelong path to optimal metabolic health. Complimenting that are heathy serum cholesterol and healthy blood pressure levels. Cinnamon benefits all three of these crucial factors, which is why it is an important ingredient in our all natural TIGERHONEY Herbal Wellness Formula.
