Lower Blood Sugar for PENNIES a Day
Big Pharma is making an absolute KILLING selling diabetes medications.
Insulin and metformin have always been dirt cheap… but you knew that wouldn’t last.
Now, there are diabetes drugs on the market that cost THOUSANDS of dollars a year.
But you don’t have the break the bank to control your blood sugar.
There’s a simple diabetes-fighter that’s probably sitting in your kitchen right now.
And it only costs you pennies a day.
Cinnamon has been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine for everything from fighting infections to improving dental health.
But its ability to control high blood sugar is what has cinnamon turning some heads.
First, a little background on diabetes.
Insulin is like a key that allows sugar to enter your cells. In diabetes, the pancreas either doesn’t produce enough insulin, or the body doesn’t respond properly to the insulin that is released.
In either case, the end result is that the sugar stays in your blood, instead of going to cells where its needed.
And your blood sugar levels skyrocket.
Cinnamon works in a couple key ways to lower blood sugar levels.
- It imitates the effects of insulin—essentially acting as its own key that allows sugar to enter cells.
- It increases insulin sensitivity, which means it helps insulin do a better job of shuttling glucose into your cells.
In one study, taking cinnamon led to an immediate increase in insulin sensitivity—an effect that lasted a 12 full hours!
Cinnamon has also been shown to decrease hemoglobin A1c, a measure of long-term blood sugar control.
Cinnamon can also keep after-meal blood sugar spikes in check. Even if you don’t have diabetes, these periodic spikes in blood sugar can cause oxidative stress and inflammation, putting you at risk for chronic disease.
If that was all cinnamon could do, it would be enough. But there’s more.
Studies show that cinnamon reduces the risk of complications associated with diabetes.
That’s because it has a beneficial impact on numerous risk factors for heart disease, including reducing high blood pressure, decreasing triglycerides, and improving HDL cholesterol.
It’s also been shown to reduce damaging proteins in the brain—beta amyloid plaque and tau proteins—two hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease.
Bottom line: cinnamon is a powerful ally in controlling blood sugar. And it benefits diabetics and non-diabetics alike.
There are two different types of cinnamon: ceylon and cassia.
Stick with the ceylon form. It’s a little more expensive, but it’s safer and more powerful.
To a brighter day,
Dr. Richard Gerhauser, M.D.
P.S. If you’re already taking diabetes medications, talk to your doctor before adding in a cinnamon supplement. Taking both together runs the risk of getting your blood sugar too low.
