Your cinnamon may be fraudulent (saw dust with cinnamon flavor? You’ve probably heard that the common kitchen spice cinnamon can have a positive impact on your insulin sensitivity, allowing your body to better process the carbohydrates you eat and manage lower blood sugar levels. This is great news as increased insulin sensitivity means lower blood sugar levels, a flatter belly, and greater health for you. Cinnamon also contains powerful antioxidants with other health benefits too! But here’s something you may not know… that cinnamon that you have in your kitchen cupboard... It might not be cinnamon at all if you bought it at the grocery store. Believe it or not, out of 12 ground cinnamon specimens examined by the New York Board of Health, only three contained any cinnamon whatsoever and even those were largely mixed with sawdust. The others were almost entirely composed of sawdust, starch, and cinnamon flavored oil. Beyond that, most cinnamon that you find at the grocery store has been heavily irradiated to extend its shelf life. This irradiation process destroys many of the active nutrients found in cinnamon, thus inactivating its ability to produce any health-promoting benefits.
