The natural ingredient cinnamon extract can help prevent type 2 diabetes: In one particular research study, more than 20 subjects with metabolic syndrome (a key risk factor for developing diabetes) were given a cinnamon extract or placebo for 12 weeks. Those in the cinnamon group ended up with significantly lower levels of fasting blood sugar compared to placebo.
Subjects in the cinnamon group also increased lean muscle mass, while losing body fat and lowering blood pressure.
Researchers found that one gram of cinnamon extract is the amount required, taken for 40 days, to improve blood sugar, triglyceride, and cholesterol levels.
