Cinnamon and weight loss
People searching for easy ways to improve their dieting success might get some help from one of the world’s favorite spices–cinnamon.
Dr. Nicola Robinson of Thames University discussed new research findings for belly fat reduction and improved weight loss in an interview in Woman’s World Magazine, February 28, 2011.
In England, people in this study were given 500 milligram cinnamon pills to take daily with their meals. They took one at breakfast, two at lunch, and one at dinnertime.
Compared to controls, these people
Some of these people reported that they did not even change their diet, yet lost more weight, as well as showing lower blood pressure and an improved glucose metabolism.
Beyond this cinnamon and weight loss study, multiple preliminary studies confirm its benefits for diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular risk factors, insulin sensitivity, inflammation, and other health conditions.
Are pills or capsules required for all these cinnamon and weight loss benefits?
No. This favorite kitchen spice also works when used in more ordinary ways.
While the pills are easy and convenient, you can just sprinkle some good quality ground cinnamon (about 1/4 teaspoon) on your meal, in a bit of sugar-free or unsweetened applesauce, or in a healthy smoothie.
Or use the sticks for stirring if you choose a tea diet for a happy flat tummy.
