Add an extra sprinkle of cinnamon to that pancake. Recent American research has indicated that this popular spice could actually lower one’s blood sugar, triglyceride and cholesterol levels. It may also improve insulin function in type 2 diabetics. Cinnamon is known as a “warming” herb that stimulates circulation and warms hands and feet.
Take action: Only half a teaspoon of cinnamon per day is enough for you to reap the benefits. But be warned, excessive use can be toxic.
