Cinnamon can Help Regulate Blood Sugar Levels

Cinnamon has been cultivated since ancient times.  The oil is attained by steaming the bark of the cinnamon tree.  Although there are several varieties of cinnamon, ceylon cinnamon is the most effective variety.  Cinnamon oil can help to minimize diabetes, lower inflammation, is anti-bacterial, and is a potent antioxidant.

Cinnamon oil supplementation can help to fight insulin resistance and lower high blood sugar levels while lowering inflammation. Chronic low level inflammation is believed to be the root cause of many modern diseases.

Researchers have determined that cinnamon oil can kill some strains of E. Coli and salmonella bacteria.  These types of bacteria are found in the intestines and on fresh vegetable leaves.  Cinnamon oil is also an antioxidant.  It can be ingested or rubbed on the skin to combat the effects of oxidative stress which is a common cause of aging.

According to a study published in the Journal of Diabetes Technology Society 2010, cinnamon oil could reduce harmful triglycerides in the blood by 30% and LDL or bad cholesterol by 27%. The build-up of fatty triglycerides and cholesterol in the blood and arteries is considered to be one of the causes of cardiovascular disease.

Several researchers have concluded that cinnamon oil may have potential for preventing Alzheimer’s disease and for improving the symptoms once they are present.

One study, published in The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease 2009, attributed this effect to the oil’s ability to inhibit the build-up of amyloid-beta in animals’ brains, which is one of the causes of the disease. [4]

Other researchers found that oral bacteria contributed to dementia in the elderly, which would imply that cinnamon oil’s antibacterial properties also play a role in keeping the worst symptoms at bay by fighting those bacteria. [5]

In a review of the scientific literature, one author found that most studies had concluded that cinnamon oil had anti-inflammatory properties. [6] This makes it a good oil to apply to wounds and insect bites and to ingest as a preventative measure against the inflammatory diseases listed above.To repair or prevent the damage that interaction with oxygen can do to cells in the body, cinnamon oil has been found to be a powerful antioxidant. [8]

Since cells outside and inside the body can be damaged, the oil can be either ingested or applied to the skin. Oxidative stress is believed to be responsible for most of the common effects of aging, as the cells that are robbed of their electrons by free radicals often simply die.

This may even be why cinnamon oil is such a good treatment for wounds and insect bites, and why you may want to try it as a soothing oil after a sunburn (see what the sun really does to your skin). It limits cell damage, which is present in all these cases.
