CINNAMON FOR YOUR BRAIN, BLOOD SUGAR, CHOLESTEROL AND KIDNEYS

Cinnamon research over the past decade has focused on its metabolic benefits, especially for blood sugar and cholesterol metabolism. Recent research confirms early findings and expands on them, indicating significant protection for the kidneys as well as rejuvenation properties for your brain.

The newly published review of all cinnamon human trials involving type 2 diabetic patients concludes that “cinnamon is associated with a statistically significant decrease in levels of fasting plasma glucose, total cholesterol, LDL-C, and triglyceride levels, and an increase in HDL-C levels.” All of these issues are associated with the metabolic syndrome and increased risk for heart disease, indicating that cinnamon may be able to help guide a person back in the right direction once metabolism has begun to falter.

Other researchers have pointed out that cinnamon is highly protective against kidney damage. This is also an important point for type 2 diabetic patients who are at high risk for sugar-induced kidney injury. Previous human studies have also shown weight loss and lowering of hemoglobin A1C. A study using Cinnulin PF, a special-water soluble supplement of cinnamon developed by the USDA for blood sugar support, found that gene signaling relating to wound healing was activated. Furthermore, the very latest study shows that cinnamon can help prediabetic and type 2 diabetic patients lower their blood pressure.

The latest area of cinnamon research involves brain health. Earlier this year, I reported that cinnamon was able to help prevent the formation of Alzheimer’s plaque tangles in the brain. Several new studies shed further light. Cinnamon was found to prevent inflammation in the glial cells of the brain, reducing the core inflammatory gene signal NF-kappaB . In another study, cinnamon was found to boost levels of BDNF, the potent signal for brain rejuvenation.

Collectively these studies show that cinnamon directly helps the core issue of blood sugar metabolism in multiple ways while also assisting many of the other health issues that typically accompany blood sugar problems.
