How to live longer: Winter drink for a healthy heart and lowered cholesterol levels

Cinnamon has also shown to help those suffering with high blood pressure and reduce the risk of age-related conditions including Alzheimer’s disease.

A study published in the Diabetes Care journal in 2003 found that cassia cinnamon (cinnamon bark) improves blood glucose and cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes and may reduce risk factors associated with diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

The study found daily intake of just one, three, or six grams of cinnamon was shown to reduce serum glucose, triglyceride, LDL or bad cholesterol and total cholesterol after 40 days among 60 middle-aged diabetics.

Another study reported in the July 2000 edition of Agricultural Research Magazine found that consuming just one gram of cinnamon per day can increase insulin sensitivity and help manage or reverse type 2 diabetes.
