Spice Fights Syndrome X

Your fancy latte with cinnamon just may deliver more than a taste sensation:

"The International Society of Sports Nutrition’s professional journal, JISSN, recently published a landmark study on the effects of a specific cinnamon extract (Cinnulin-PF) in pre-diabetic subjects.

Prediabetes is strongly linked to cardiovascular disease and a metabolic condition known as Syndrome X. Researchers from The Ohio Research Group reported that supplementing with 500 mg per day of Cinnulin-PF significantly reduced fasting blood sugar and systolic blood pressure, while simultaneously improving body composition. Impressively, these beneficial effects occurred without changes in diet or exercise.

Cinnamon is the real deal when it comes to overall health and wellness. Look for the specific extract used in the study."
