Ingredients & DescriptionFull Spectrum Cinnamon Extract Traditionally used in Asian countries for improving and supporting digestion. A 40-day human study with 60 people found that cinnamon supported healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Cinnamon contains flavonoids, which are potent antioxidants and may be synergistic with vitamins and trace elements. Much more than a simple flavoring, cinnamon can spice up your health. Derived from the bark of the cinnamon tree, cinnamon is one of the oldest remedies used in traditional Chinese herbalism for digestive support. Recent scientific studies have shown cinnamon may support healthy blood sugar levels, when used as part of your diet, by activating insulin and glucose transport and improving glucose metabolism.

This formula is an example of herbalism at its bestuniting traditional herbal wisdom with the findings of modern clinical and pharmacological research.Modern Scientific ResearchIn the last decade, in vitro studies revealed that water-extracted cinnamon might help support healthy blood sugar levels by improving the effectiveness of insulin action. Cinnamon was found to be the most bioactive of the herbs, which suggests a possible role in improving glucose and insulin metabolism. A 40-day human study with 60 people, given 1, 3 or 6 grams of cinnamon daily, found that all three levels of cinnamon reduced the mean fasting serum glucose (18-29%), triglycerides (23-30%), LDL cholesterol (7-27%), and total cholesterol (12-26%) levels. The most significant results were found with 3 grams of whole cinnamon bark, the equivalent amount provided daily in Planetary Formulas Full Spectrum Cinnamon Extract.
