So How Effective Is Cinnamon For
Losing Weight & Lowering Your Blood Sugar?...
In people that are overweight, fat and muscle cells gradually lose their ability to respond to insulin, the hormone that directs cells to remove excess glucose from the bloodstream. As a result, glucose builds up in the blood, causing symptoms such as being tired all the time, weight gain and poor sleeping habits.
Clinical studies have established that cinnamon "rekindles" the ability of fat cells of overweight people to recognize and respond to insulin again in a POSTIVE manner, increasing their glucose metabolism twenty-fold.
This will ultimately lead to weight loss (more on this below...)
The substance responsible, for doing this in cinnamon is a polyphenol called methylhydroxy chalcone polymer (MHCP). Simply stated, by taking cinnamon, increases your body's "sensitivity" to sugars and therefore, your body produces LESS insulin.
When less insulin is produced, less fat and sugar is directed into the fat cells and more towards muscle cells. Hence, less body fat and more muscle.
Why This Is SO Important For You & Weight Loss
Insulin is known as a "storage" hormone and hence, it STORES FAT. So, the higher your blood sugar levels, the higher your insulin levels and the more the food you eat gets converted to and stored as ugly body fat.
This is the primary reason why "low carbohydrate" diets work... less blood sugar and hence, less insulin.
BUT, if you lower your carbohydrates too much or too long, you'll:
- have less energy
- you won't be able to exercise as much, or as hard
- your thyroid production will lower
- you'll lose valuable muscle
- dieting stops working after 2-3 weeks
All the above will directly and indirectly lead to FAT GAIN and/or fat burning will STOP!
This is why you need to still eat healthy carbohydrates (whole grains, vegetables, fruits, etc.) and then normalize and lower your blood sugar levels with CORRECT FORM (see below) of Cinnamon, in addition to other key nutrients (more on this below...)
Warnings & "Scams"
Even though Cinnamon is all natural, you still need to be careful. As with anything, there are always potential "negatives" and here are a few things you want to watch out for:
What about negative side-effects?...
- ONLY take pure extracts containing the active components (This is the exact form found in a very effective and all natural product called, Lean Optimizer®)
- Do NOT take the dry "root", which is just dead herbs and it's worthless. Unfortunately, the dry root is found in most of the "cheap" products and you have to use thousands of milligrams daily to get the proper effect.
- Do NOT use liquid forms of Cinnamon Extract, as it losses most of its effects within a month or two (it needs to be freeze dried extracts).
- Do NOT take it by itself, because then you'll have to take very high dosages to notice the positive effects. And unfortunately, at the high dosages you may get the above mentioned negative effects.
But, don't go out and spend your hard-earned money on Cinnamon just yet ...
Therefore, it's best to combine Cinnamon with other synergistic ingredients that are also natural to prevent adaptation or side-effects (see below...). This is VERY IMPORTANT!
So, What's YOUR Best & Safest Solution?...
Only broccoli for health?...
I'll be honest with you. No one single ingredient works at 100% effectiveness forever, let alone for every person. And that includes Cinnamon or any other single herb or nutrient.
Think about it. Just like you don't eat only broccoli for best health, you don't want to use only one herb or nutrient either.
The best products use Cinnamon combo, in conjunction with other key ingredients, at specific dosages to dramatically help with Losing Weight & Lowering Your Blood Sugar.
Other key ingredients you should look for when purchasing a product, which also work in synergy with Cinnamon are:
For Reducing Your Appetite:
- Acacia Rigidula
- P57 Hoodia Gordonii™ "Xhoba" Extract
For Increasing Your Metabolism
- L-Tyrosine Ethyl Ester
- Guggulsterones (Synthetic 450, E + Z 1:1)
For Reducing Blood Sugar/Insulin Levels
- R(+) Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Chromax® Cinnamon Picolinate
- Cinnamon Extract
For PH Alkalizing Your System (reducing Cortisol)
- Green Tea (organic 98% Extract, 45% EGCG, 80% Catechines)
- Chlorella Chlorophyll
When combined with the above ingredients, Cinnamon creates a "synergy" where you get MORE positive effects, at a much LOWER dose. That's the secret!...
