Health Benefits of Cinnamon

It’s nice to know that many of the solutions to our biggest health problems are within our kitchen cupboard. I think most of us realize that the food choices we make impact our health in a very powerful way. Reducing saturated fats reduces our risk for heart disease.

Cinnamon has several health benefits ranging from diabetes to obesity!

It’s nice to know that many of the solutions to our biggest health problems are within our kitchen cupboard. I think most of us realize that the food choices we make impact our health in a very powerful way. Reducing saturated fats reduces our risk for heart disease. Watching how much sugar we eat can help keep us from problems like obesity or diabetes.

Cinnamon is an herb that most of us have smelled coming from the kitchen over the holiday season informing us that something delectable will soon make its way to our table. Did you know that this pungent herb, in addition to stimulating our appetite with its delicious aroma, also helps us with our body’s ability to process sugar? Studies by the USDA have shown Cinnamon can naturally boost insulin sensitivity.

Cinnamon for Your Health

What does this mean for our health? This means that less insulin is needed to assist the sugar in your blood with crossing over the cellular membrane, which is beneficial in many ways. The longer sugar remains in your body before processing the more likely it will be converted to fat for long term storage. This obviously can lead to unhealthy weight gain. If your pancreas is forced to produce more and more insulin it is taxing on that organ and can lead to diminished functionality which is a pre-diabetic condition.

The studies have shown however that when we eat cinnamon, some of the active constituents are damaged by our digestive process. Because of this, a supplement using a powerful extract from the herb, swallowed in a capsule can much more efficiently deliver these amazing compounds to where they are needed. Be sure to choose wisely and question whether or not the supplement you decide on is naturally produced using safe processes and containing only necessary ingredients instead of fillers that can interfere with your ability to absorb the benefits of cinnamon, a familiar old friend.

For more on how cinnamon can improve your health and why it’s an employee favorite, take a look at Louis’ blog here.

Understanding Herbal Extracts

Too often herbal extracts are subjected to excessive chemical processing, which renders them deteriorated and incomplete. We’ve touched on the purity of Kroeger Herb Products’ Complete Concentrates in a recent blog post but are still asked questions as to why these supplements are so reliable, safe, and effective. Take a look for answers to frequently asked questions and learn why Kroeger is putting the natural back in herbs.

Take a look for answers to frequently asked questions and learn why Kroeger is putting the natural back in herbs.

Schizandra berries are sticky & difficult to get in a capsule but Kroeger doesn't add any flowing agents to the berry!

Aren’t all Herbal Extracts Natural? Unfortunately most companies use harsh toxic solvents in the extraction process such as acetone, denatured alcohol, or hexane which are not natural. When herbal extracts are created with these solvents, their purity is stripped and the potency of the herb is affected. What makes Complete Concentrates so different is that through a water (or in the case of Milk Thistle and Echinacea, water and food grade alcohol) extraction process, no solvents are introduced and you’re ingesting a product that is safe and toxin-free.

Do Solvents Evaporate off Herbs During Extraction? Solvents do evaporate from the herbs but there may be a residue left. Think of it this way: Imagine eating spinach soaked in nail polish remover (a common solvent in herb extraction) then letting it dry…would you want to eat it? Now imagine eating spinach soaked in water and allowing that to dry. Is the water soaked spinach more appealing to eat? Many of the solvents used in extraction methods are toxic not only to people but also the environment.  Add to the list of frustrations with solvents, unlike excipients or fillers they are not required by law to be listed on labels and companies who use these toxins want to keep it that way.

What are Excipients? After the extraction process herbs are liquid and are often sticky, posing a problem when a company wishes to encapsulate the herb. The easiest solution to this problem is to add a carrier substance for that liquid to be sprayed on. These carrier substances, or excipients, add another ingredient to the label for companies that choose to use them (like magnesium sterate or maltodextrin). In the case of Kroeger’s Concentrates, the liquid extract is sprayed back onto the herb which has been through the extraction process or on fresh herb so that nothing new is introduced to the product.

What do Flowing Agents Do? During encapsulation, especially with sticky herbal extracts, some companies prefer to add flowing agents to absorb excess moisture and speed up the capping process. While this saves production time costs, many flowing agents are synthetic and dilute the extract while adding further ingredients to your label. Look for the addition of rice, wheat, corn, whey, or other powdered substances; these flowing agents are not needed and are negatively impacting the potency of the herb.

What is a Filler? What do Fillers do? An average capsule has room for about 350-500 milligrams of herbs. Using only extracted herb is excessive and expensive so to cut corners, many companies add ingredients to the capsule to fill space. While some of these ingredients (rice powder for example) may have some sort of nutritional value, if a company is touting the purity of their concentrated products, there is no need for a filler to be included.

What does Full Spectrum Mean? Kroeger’s Complete Concentrates are a full spectrum product which means that the constituents of the herb are present in their natural ratios. When a concentrated herb is full spectrum, all of the constituents are concentrated at the same percentage.

If you have any other questions about Kroeger’s line of Complete Concentrates, let us know! We’re happy to share any information we can and hope you see now why this line of concentrates is superior to other products on the market. Paying attention to labels and understanding what methods were used in creating an herb is just as important as knowing what ingredients are going into your system.

Kroeger Herb’s Cinnamon Complete Concentrate is, in my opinion, the best cinnamon supplement on the market. There are no excipients, flowing agents or fillers, just cinnamon! The fact that this cinnamon capsule is pure cinnamon with no additives is unique since most companies use chemical processes and harmful solvents to achieve extraction and Kroeger doesn’t. If it isn’t on the label, it’s not in the capsule! While the common uses of cinnamon include antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, it’s also been useful in improving circulation, aiding in digestion and elimination, easing menstrual discomfort, improving kidney health, relieving pain and boosting mood! And, add this to the list of the many health benefits of cinnamon: recent research by the USDA has shown that it boosts insulin sensitivity, increases glucose metabolism, decreases LDL (bad) cholesterol and lowers triglycerides! Cinnamon supplements really are beneficial for men and women, young and old.

Benefits of Cinnamon Oil

Cinnamon Leaf, Organic

Because of my enthusiasm for cinnamon supplements, I branched out to cinnamon oil to see the health benefits it could provide to my life as well. Did you know cinnamon oil can increase your appetite and stimulate saliva production to aid in digestion? I add 3 drops of Simplers Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil to a pot of simmering water on the stove to add a pleasing aroma in my

home and signal to my body that a meal is on the way.

Cinnamon oil has also been effective as a mosquito repellent and has been found to kill mosquito larvae! For those of you worried about chemicals in repellent products for yourself or your children, this is a great alternative. By using the cinnamon essential oil you can protect yourself from those flying pests and get back to enjoying your activities outdoors without the concerns of ingredients in repellents.

Whether it’s the scent of a candle burning or cookies being baked in the kitchen, the next time you smell cinnamon, think of all the ways it can serve your body’s health. For me personally it has helped with pain, digestion, appetite and I’ll bet if my insides could talk, they would thank me for much more!
