On this occasion we are going to talk about the extraordinary spice called cinnamon. Its usage is highly recommended for the diabetics, especially in their every-day diet, given the fact that cinnamon has an anti diabetic effect, the one that reduces the levels of glucoses in blood.
In a certain way it works the same as insulin; they say it has mimetic features. ’’Mimetic’’ means that it copies or that it acts and reacts in the same way as the insulin that our body produces naturally.
A scientific research by a university in California revealed that cinnamon has a substance called methyl-hydroxychalcone. This component has an antidiabetic effect, and at the same time reduces the levels of glucoses in blood. Glucoses is the main cause of excessive weight gain: if we didn’t have glucoses, we wouldn’t put on weight.
