- It helps in keeping the insulin level improved. Insulin controls the blood sugar level in the body so if one eats lots of sugary things then more insulin is produced by the body to control it and at a certain level the body gets used to the level of insulin produced and its control over the blood sugar level weakens so the blood sugar level raises and a person gets diabetic and having cinnamon helps the insulin control become stronger.
Weight most commonly increases by consuming lots of junk food or sugar products, as eating more carbohydrates than required increases the blood sugar level and cholesterol in the body which makes us fat. If we use cinnamon regularly it will not let the blood sugar level or cholesterol get out of its boundaries and will help in stopping weight gain, in fact it will reduce weight. Also it is said that cinnamon is thermogenic in nature and helps the body burn more calories than usual which will also aid in reducing weight.
The ideal way to use cinnamon is to put it in curries, tea, salads, breads and pies. Start using cinnamon and get that dream body shape back.
