The amazing benefits of Cinnamon
Prevention of diabetes
Studies have shown that Cinnamon can regulate blood sugar levels by increasing the body's sensitivity to insulin. Insulin resistance is the first step to diabetes (type 2). Just one teaspoon a day can have the following beneficial effects:
Weight loss and reduction of cravings
Cinnamon is a delicious natural sweetener that helps curb cravings. The blood sugar balancing effect encourages healthy weight loss and can be used successfully for weight management as part of your SureSlim weight loss program.
Antioxidant and anti-aging
A teaspoon of cinnamon contains as much powerful antioxidant as half a cup of blueberries. By aiding in blood sugar regulation, it prevents sugar surges damaging our tissues and DNA. Combine this with its antioxidant effects and you can see why it can effectively aid in slowing down the aging process.
Antibacterial and immune boosting
Cinnamon has antimicrobial properties that can effectively treat or keep an infection at bay. It can be used to eradicate Candida infection in the intestines, as well as having antioxidant abilities to aid the immune system. Try adding it to hot honey and lemon for a powerful natural cold & flu remedy.
Cinnamon helps with the metabolism of fats, its anti-fungal properties help keep a healthy balance of gut flora in the intestines and can help relieve diarrhoea and nausea.
