Cinnamon extract can help control Type 2 diabetes
 
Information supplied by OTC Pharma, South Africa

New research has shown that adding a cinnamon extract to a type 2 diabetic management program may additionally reduce blood sugar levels by up to 29% and cholesterol levels by up to 26%. This means fewer fluctuations on a daily basis and less risk of long-term complications.

There are reports that it may prevent the need for medication in patients with Type 2 Diabetes. However, diabetic patients should be warned to always consult their medical practitioner before changing medication as the consequences of uncontrolled diabetes can be extremely severe. If adding a cinnamon extract causes a drop in blood sugar and cholesterol levels, but a reduction in current medication is not possible, it may help prevent or delay an increase in the dose of prescribed medication with time. With better control, you can decrease the need for more prescribed medicine or insulin.

Unlike many prescribed medicines, cinnamon extracts do not stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin. Therefore they help preserve the beta-cells of the pancreas.  This helps reduce the need for extra medicines or insulin and is a very important focus for diabetes treatment options.

Ordinary ground cinnamon contains oils that can irritate the lining of the mouth, stomach and intestine and cause mucous membrane irritation and bleeding. It can possibly also cause blood thinning if taken in excess. In a water-based extract of cinnamon, such as Diabeccin which is available in all Dis-Chem stores, these oils are left behind and therefore the chance of an extract causing unwanted side-effects is very low. In addition, the extract is a concentrated form of whole ground cinnamon which makes dosing easier. Cinnamon used in the kitchen has a low concentration of active substance (polymers). You would need to take large amounts of regular table cinnamon in order to achieve the correct dosage and the similar result to that of the clinical trials.

How does it work?

It helps reduce sugar levels in the bloodstream by improving insulin resistance, in other words it helps your insulin work better. It also helps move sugar from the blood into the muscles and tissues and assists in the process of changing sugar into glycogen. This gives you energy.

Diabetes is associated with high triglyceride (bad fats) levels. Insulin helps break down these triglycerides and because cinnamon extract makes insulin more effective (work better), triglyceride levels are reduced. This in turn helps reduce total cholesterol levels. Oxidation is a process which changes LDL (bad fats) into fatty deposits in arteries. This can lead to heart attacks and strokes. Extracts of cinnamon have potent anti-oxidant effects which help prevent the formation of these fatty deposits in the arteries.
