Cinnamon is literally a “fat burning spice” that can actually help you fight against abdominal fat.
Here are some other benefits of this miracle spice:
- controls blood sugar levels
- helps maintain insulin sensitivity
- a powerful antioxidant
- may have antibacterial and antifungal properties
The main benefit that will help you to get leaner is through it’s strong effect on controlling blood sugar levels in your body.
In a study published in 2003 in the medical journal Diabetes Care, groups were split into people taking 1, 3, or 6 grams of cinnamon per day in capsule form (the equivalent of approx 1/4th to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon).
The results of the study showed that all 3 amounts of cinnamon reduced fasting blood glucose levels by 18-29% after 40 days.
As you know, insulin is the responsible for fat gain. The good news is that cinnamon can also increase insulin sensitivity, which essentially means that it is helping your body to control blood sugar while simultaneously allowing your body to produce less insulin.
How to use cinnamon?
We recommend you to use a cinnamon capsule before each of your meals, particularly if you’re going to have more than 30 grams of carbs in that meal.
This could help to control blood sugar and insulin response from your meals and thereby control your appetite and cravings throughout the day… hence, helping you to lose body fat more effectively over time.
So now you can see that not only is cinnamon a powerful antioxidant that can help you stay youthful longer, it can also help you to control blood sugar and get a leaner body!
