Type II Diabetes in Adults and Cinnamon!

Cinnamon may be the best thing to add to your diet if you are concerned about your blood sugar levels, according to Dr. Wright's Newsletter. Yep, all types of cinnamon have been proven to regulate glucose metabolism in his research team's experiments.

His suggestion is to boil cinnamon in water, pour it through cheescloth to separate off the fat soluble fractions and discard the solids.

You can also use a cinnamon dirivative, MHCP, in supplement form.

Are you prone to type II diabetes?
Possible signs of a tendency towards type II-

1. skin tags
2. weight gain
3. shin spots (brownish red or yellow discolorations on the shins)
4. curling of the fingers towards the palms
5. high blood pressure
6. elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels
7. a family history

Taking MCHP if on insulin should allow you to take less insulin.
Always consult with your doctor though!
