As reported in the Doctors Health Press e–Bulletin on Thursday, December 1, 2011 , researchers at the University of Melbourne recently investigated results for clinical trials involving cinnamon and its effects on insulin resistance. Evidence showed that cinnamon has a potentially significant role to play in diabetes prevention. It seems that cinnamon improves insulin resistance by preventing and actually reversing insulin signaling in skeletal muscle.

According to Doctors Health Press e–Bulletin, the researchers reviewed a wide range of clinical trials pertaining to cinnamon and glucose control. They noted that alternative cures for diabetes are needed. Obesity levels have been rising steadily over the past five decades and are predicted to continue rising. This trend has resulted in skyrocketing diabetes rates.

The researchers also found that cinnamon increases the expression of peroxisome proliferator–activated receptors, says Doctors Health Press e–Bulletin, which play an essential role in regulating your metabolism. Cinnamon's most impressive and consistent action against diabetes was its ability to improve fasting glucose levels.

Along with offering benefits in the control and prevention of diabetes, cinnamon was found to be anti–inflammatory and may help to improve cholesterol levels and blood pressure. The researchers concluded by saying that it might be jumping the gun to suggest that cinnamon be used as a supplement to treat diabetes. However, its positive effects on glucose control are undeniable.
