Uses For Cinnamon WS
Healthy Glucose Metabolism: There has been a growing amount of literature, including a study performed at the Beltsville USDA Human Nutrition Research Center, suggesting that cinnamon’s water-soluble polyphenol polymers support healthy glucose metabolism. A clinical trial reported that supplementation with cinnamon promoted healthy glucose balance and was well tolerated. Additional studies indicate that cinnamon extract promotes an upregulation of glucose metabolism in skeletal muscle cells. Furthermore, an animal study currently underway at the University of California at Santa Barbara is further exploring, at a cellular level, the potential for cinnamon to support glucose function.*
Cardiovascular Function: A clinical trial reported that cinnamon provided statistically significant support for healthy lipid and triglyceride metabolism. Studies also indicate that the numerous water-soluble polyphenol polymers found naturally in cinnamon may support healthy blood flow and provide antioxidant protection.*
