Cinammon for weight loss |


Many people struggle to lose weight, or gain too much weight due to excessive carbohydrate ingestion, either currently, or in the past.

When you eat carbs, your body releases insulin, a storage hormone to remove the excess sugars that are deposited in the blood stream through the digestion of carbs, into sugars. If you have or have had a high carb/sugar diet, chances are your body isnt releasing insulin as well as it should and you’re getting lots of energy slumps alongside a struggle to drop fat.

So what can you do?

Well, cinnamon is a great natural herb you can add to carb meals, smoothies or supplement format to slow the release of the carb sugars down in your body, as it slows the release of carbohydrates from your stomach and into your intestines/bloodstream. This is why Cinammon would be a GREAT choice for diabetics as well.

It’s a spice from the inner bark of several trees from the genus Cinnamomum and is often used in both sweet and savoury foods, due to it’s “nutty” flavour.

It’s had some great press in studies on fat loss, recovery and nutrient absorption. It will also start to regulate your insulin use, which is crucial if you want to stay healthy and get leaner.

Ideally you will add cinnamon to your meals, smoothies etc, but if you feel the flavour of the meal could be compromised, some studies have shown it’s equally effective when taken 12 hours before a meal, so down the hatch with breakfast for long term insulin and weight management control!

Ideally take around 5g a day, split into 3 equal doses before your main meal, but as said above, taking with breakfast will have great benefits for the remainder of the day.

Like most natural foods, they will be affected by air and longevity, so keep them fresh and airtight. Best option is to buy cinnamon sticks and grind up before use to keep fresh.
