On this occasion, we are going to talk about the extraordinary spice called cinnamon. Its usage is highly recommended for the diabetics, especially in their every-day diet, given the fact that cinnamon has an anti-diabetic effect, the one that reduces the levels of glucose in the blood.
In a certain way, it works the same as insulin; they say it has mimetic features. ’’Mimetic’’ means that it copies or that it acts and reacts in the same way as the insulin that our body produces naturally.
A scientific research by a university in California revealed that cinnamon has a substance called methyl-hydroxychalcone. This component has an antidiabetic effect, and at the same time reduces the levels of glucose in the blood. Glucose is the main cause of excessive weight gain: if we didn’t have glucose, we wouldn’t put on weight.
Cinnamon has an antifungal property, that is, it treats all types of fungi. It is recommended to take two tablespoons a day, so let’s see what the best way to use it properly is.
-2 teaspoons of cinnamon powder (if you are diabetic, only one)
- -1 tablespoon of whole oats
- -1 glass of water
- This extract is very easy to prepare, and we are going to start noticing its effects in about a week’s time.
- We need to liquefy each of the ingredients very well, without straining them.
- It is necessary to take this extract twice a day for no more than 15 days since cinnamon could affect the intestinal flora.
