Scientists have figured out what product prevents the development of diabetes
According to the study, which was conducted by scientists of the three countries that cinnamon improves blood sugar control in people with prediabetes and can slow the progression of it to type II diabetes. The paper was published in the journal of the Endocrine Society.
Endocrinologists from Joslin diabetes center in Boston, USA — the world's largest research center for the study of diabetes — together with German colleagues from the Regional medical center, Landstuhl and scientists from the University Kyung-Hee in Seoul, South Korea conducted a randomized clinical trial the effect of supplementation with cinnamon on blood sugar control in people with advanced stage of diabetes.
The study involved 51 people with a predisposition to diabetes, which this diagnosis, however, has not yet been delivered. The participants three times a day for 12 weeks were given a capsule of cinnamon in 500 milligrams or a placebo.
The authors found that supplementation with cinnamon reduced the level of glucose in fasting blood and improve the body's response to eating with carbohydrates, which are the smooth factors of prediabetes. Cinnamon was well tolerated, and none of the participant did not experience any allergic reactions or any side effects.
"Our study showed a positive effect from the addition of cinnamon in the diet to maintain stable blood sugar levels in participants with prediabetes — presented in a press release quotes first author Giulio Romeo (Giulio R. Romeo), PhD of Joslin diabetes center. These results provide a basis for long term and extensive research to find out whether cinnamon can reduce the risk of developing type II diabetes over time."
Scientists estimate that about 90 million people in the United States today have prediabetes, which occurs when the blood sugar level is constantly above normal. This condition often leads to the development of type II diabetes, the result of which can cause many health problems — from obesity to infertility, diseases of joints and bones, and even hormonal cancers.
For people with prediabetes is particularly important to control the blood glucose level of glucose in the blood, and scientists, doctors and nutritionists — constantly looking for products that contribute to its maintenance. This is the most important non-drug strategy for the prevention of diabetes.
The study was conducted under the auspices of the Endocrine society, the oldest and largest international organization in the field of endocrinology and metabolism, and was supported by the Ministry of health and social welfare of South Korea.
