This spice that I’m going to mention is one of the most overlooked, but healthiest spices in the world…
You might even call it a “fat burning spice”… in a roundabout way.
And yes, it can actually help you win the battle against abdominal fat if you use it daily…I’ll explain why.
- controls blood sugar levels
- helps maintain insulin sensitivity
- a VERY powerful antioxidant
- may have antibacterial and antifungal properties
- and dozens of other benefits
- So what is this miracle spice that beats abdominal fat?
Although cinnamon does NOT directly increase fat burning (such as by increasing metabolic rate, etc), it CAN actually help you to burn off abdominal fat and get leaner in an indirect way.
Although cinnamon has dozens of health benefits, the main benefit that will help you to get leaner is through it’s strong effect on controlling blood sugar levels in your body.
In a study published in 2003 in the medical journal Diabetes Care, groups were split into people taking 1, 3, or 6 grams of cinnamon per day in capsule form (the equivalent of approx 1/4th to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon).
The results of the study showed that all 3 amounts of cinnamon reduced fasting blood glucose levels by 18-29% after 40 days.
Cinnamon can also increase insulin sensitivity, which essentially means that it is helping your body to control blood sugar while simultaneously allowing your body to produce less insulin.
As you know, chronically high insulin levels can make your body pack on the blubber.More…
