Cinnamon27™ is a unique blend of seven powerful ingredients all carefully picked for their potential to support blood sugar balance.
For thousands of years, the fragrant spice cinnamon has been prized for its many health benefits. Made from the inner bark of Cinnamomum trees, traditionally it was used to help calm digestive problems. More recently, research has focused on how it may support blood sugar balance. Studies show the consumption of cinnamon is associated with a statistically significant decrease in levels of fasting plasma glucose, total cholesterol, LDL-C, and triglyceride levels, with an increase in HDL-C levels.
It is also a powerful antioxidant: with an impressively high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity) score of 267,536. It may also help support heart and brain health.
Plus six more powerful ingredients:
Chromium, an essential trace mineral, now recognised as playing an important part in insulin function, and the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. But, many people are simply not getting enough in their diets. Chromax chromium picolinate is highly bioavailable, and supported by 35 clinical studies indicating it may benefit weight management, appetite control, glucose metabolism and insulin function.
Nopal, a cactus fruit, also known as “prickly pear,” is considered a superfood. An extremely potent antioxidant, which may support cholesterol modulation, reducing total and LDL-cholesterol but only moderately lowering of HDL-cholesterol. Cacti-Nea™ Nopal is a 100-percent organic.
American Ginseng, has been widely used as in folk medicine for thousands of years, as a general tonic and adaptogen. Studies show it may also have hypoglycemic and antidiabetic properties. While the exact mechanisms are unknown, it is theorised it may aid the pancreas to increase insulin production, support tissues to utilise insulin as well as decrease insulin resistance.
Bitter Melon, also known as bitter gourd, is popular in curries in India and Asia. It contains the compounds charantia and polypeptide-p, which may help promote insulin secretion, reduce intestinal glucose uptake, while increasing the uptake and utilization of glucose in peripheral tissues.
Fenugreek seeds, another key ingredient in curries with medicinal benefits. High in soluble fibre, they may help slow down carbohydrate digestion, thus improving insulin function, and lowering blood sugar. Some evidence indicates that fenugreek may help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
Gymnema Sylvestre, comes from a shrub native to India and Africa. With a long history of use in Ayurvedic medicine, the Hindi name is “gurmar” which translates as “destroyer of sugar.” It may help stimulate insulin production in the pancreas, promoting the regeneration of insulin-producing islet cells. It can also block sugar taste receptors in the mouth helping to controls sweet cravings.
