Additional Information about Cinnamon 6:
Cinnamon may significantly help people with type 2 diabetes improve their ability to respond to insulin, thus normalizing their blood sugar levels. Both test tube and animal studies have shown that compounds in cinnamon not only stimulate insulin receptors, but also inhibit an enzyme that inactivates them, thus significantly increasing ability to use glucose.
Research has revealed that a number of herbs and spices have insulin-like activity.2 In a study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), cinnamon demonstrated the greatest ability to stimulate cellular glucose metabolism among 49 botanicals tested.
Dr. James Chappell references and recommends Cinnamon 6 in his book "A Promise Made a Promise Kept: One Son's Quest for the Cause and Cure of Diabetes". He is a chiropractic (D.C.) and naturopathic (N.D.) physician, clinical nutritionist (Ph.D.) and medical herbalist (M.H.).
Dr. James Chappell is a teacher's teacher and a whole food nutrition purist, stating, "The key to health is not treatment, be it natural or orthodox, the key is and has always been love and attention, education and taking effective action. We need to remember that we are what we eat, assimilate and don't eliminate. Caution should be taken as to what we consume through our food, air, water and especially our minds. I have devoted my entire adult life to sharing the wisdom contained in nature and what befalls us when we ignore Her. Ignorance is definitely not bliss and hence we continue to suffer because of it. Nothing is more important than our health. Nothing. The laws of nature are without negotiation. The key is in understanding and adapting to them. Those who fail to take the time to be healthy will ultimately have to take the time to be sick."
