Cinnamon, Insulin & Glucose tolerance

Solomon  and Blannin (University of Birmingham, UK) comment that various spices display insulin-potentiating activity and mention that cinnamon  have been shown to exhibit similar functionality.

They studied this phenomenon in humans and results illustrated that cinnamon ingestion may be important for glycaemic control and insulin sensitivity in humans and this appears to be sustained for 12 h.

We have seen the implications of Insulin on blood sugar and fat levels in a previous article on our sister blog
