Cinnamon has been used for thousands of years as a spice in baking and cooking. It is also popular because of its antioxidant properties. Cinnamic acid, cinnamate, and cinnamaldehyde are the compounds present in the cinnamon that imparts its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-microbial, and anti-diabetic functions.
But why did we include this spice in Craving Defender? There are a number of reasons.
Did you know cinnamon has been shown to help in shedding weight? The anti-diabetic function helps to decrease and maintain the sugar levels in the blood. Additionally, the cell sensitivity to insulin improves with the use of cinnamon. Moreover, many digestive enzymes and their activity is blocked by cinnamon resulting in reduced sugar absorption by the cell from the blood after consumption of a meal rich in carbohydrates. Pretty amazing, right?
Cinnamon also has high fiber content which will slow down the passing of food from the stomach to the small intestine, thus it promotes the feeling of fullness and satiety and curbs the food cravings. Since the body needs more energy to process cinnamon in comparison to other foods, it can help to boost metabolism. The improved metabolism targets the abdominal fat deposits resulting in weight loss.
Additionally, cinnamon supplementation has been shown by research to significantly improve metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is the name for a group of risk factors that raises your risk for heart disease and other health problems, such as diabetes and stroke.
Cinnamon also has the ability to mimic the action of insulin. This increases glucose metabolism in the body, reducing the need of the body to secrete more insulin and fighting the craving for more food. When sugar levels are high in the blood, it is stored in the body as fats. These high levels are prevented by cinnamon which will promote weight loss.
You can get all these amazing cinnamon benefits (and more!) by incorporating Craving Defender into your daily diet!
