Ayurvedic View

Cinnamon helps to manage a normal sugar level. According to Ayurveda, diabetes also known as Madhumeha is due to an aggravation of Vata and impaired digestion. Impaired digestion leads to an accumulation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion) in the pancreatic cells and impairs the function of insulin. Cinnamon helps to correct impaired digestion due to its Ushna (hot) potency. This reduces Ama and improves the function of insulin, thus manages a normal blood sugar level.

HOW IT’S
USED

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon is to be soaked in 1 cup of water, after cooking half the remainder, filter it and drink it twice a day.
