Cinnamon Extract- an excellent herbal ingredient for promoting healthy glucose levels

Source:smart-publications      Date:Jul 22, 2016

In acient China history,Cinnamon was mentioned in onf of earliest on Chinese botantical medicine.Some common forms are oil and powder.And Cinnamon's raw origion includes:Guangxi,Guangdong,Yunnan,etc.

The essential oils found in cinnamon work naturally to support healthy insulin function and help maintain metabolic function. Mostly,this oil can be applicated in Spice products,Food&supplement,and personal care chemical products.

About Cinnamon Extract powder,This powerful extract delivers reliable natural support for healthy insulin function.

Richard Anderson and his team at the US Department of Agriculture’s Human Nutrition Research Center in Beltsville, Maryland, discovered the scientific evidence that demonstrates how cinnamon serves as an important antioxidant,

 and is beneficial in the prevention and control of glucose intolerance and diabetes.

Cinnamon contains a water-soluble polyphenol compound called MHCP (methylhydroxy chalcone polymer), which is partly responsible for its health benefits. In unpublished test tube experiments, researchers found that MHCP mimics insulin, activates its receptor, and works synergistically with insulin in cells. When mice were given MHCP, their glucose levels fell dramatically.

Then, to see how it would work on humans, Alam Khan, who was a postdoctoral fellow in Anderson’s lab, organized a study in Pakistan. Volunteers with type II diabetes were given one, three, or six grams of cinnamon powder a day in capsules after meals.

All responded within weeks, with blood sugar levels that were on average 20% lower than a control group. Some even achieved normal blood sugar levels. Blood sugar started creeping up again after the diabetics stopped taking cinnamon.

“The researchers found that cinnamon triggered the ability of fat cells in diabetic individuals to respond to insulin, and it also enhanced the removal of glucose.”

Cinnamon has additional benefits. It also lowered blood levels of fats and “bad” cholesterol, which are also partly controlled by insulin. And in test tube experiments, it neutralized free radicals which are elevated in diabetics.

What active ingredients they found?

Anderson’s team found that cinnamon contains antioxidants called polyphenols that boost levels of three key proteins. Those proteins are important in insulin signaling, glucose transport, and inflammatory response. In another study, 

the scientists investigated cinnamon’s chemistry and found that proanthocyanidin—a type of polyphenol—may have insulin-like properties.

“The researchers concluded that cinnamon might be a valuable candidate for a new anti-diabetic drug.”

Additionally,a group at the University of Calgary, Canada, found that phenolic acids, which are a major component of cinnamon extract, lowers blood glucose levels by enhancing glucose transport. The researchers concluded that cinnamon might be a valuable candidate for a new anti-diabetic drug.

What should I look for in a cinnamon supplement?

Most products contain just a water-soluble cinnamon extract, not the important fat-soluble cinnamon components. It’s important to take a supplement that provides the full spectrum of cinnamon’s active phytochemicals, including both the water-soluble and the important fat-soluble compounds including cinnamaldehyde.

Why should I take a cinnamon extract supplement when I can add the spice to my food? 

The good news is that you don’t have to eat fat-laden cinnamon buns or apple pie to get your daily fill of this amazing spice.

And while sprinkling cinnamon on your toast or cereal in the morning will help support healthy blood glucose levels,taking a full spectrum extract will enable you to get all the potential benefits of cinnamon in a concentrated, easy-to-take form.
