Doctor's Best Best Cinnamon Extract is a multifunctional dietary supplement with 125 mg of the extract of Chinese cinnamon bark (Cinnamonum cassia). The healthy properties of that popular and globally well-known spice have been used in herbal medicine for about 4,000 years. Active substances present in the fantastic tree's bark affect many systems of the organism. Among its many effects, it improves the carbohydrate management, the lipid profile and protects the nervous system from free radicals.
The product is prepared on the basis of a patented formula Cinnulin PF® - a water Chinese cinnamon bark extract. Thanks to that method, it is possible to accurately separate the beneficial components from potentially toxic substances present in the bark. The extract also contains a high concentration of type A procyanidin polymers - specific polyphenols with strong health benefits.
Regulation of carbohydrate management
Scientific reports from the past several years show that biologically active substances in Chinese cinnamon bark, type A procyanidin polymers in particular, possess strong properties that support the organism's ability to maintain the normal concentration of glucose in the blood. The most probable reason for it is the improvement of glucose molecule penetration inside the organism's cells and the increase of glycogen synthase activity, that is the enzyme responsible for glycogen synthesis (glucose storage).
It is suggested that the substances present in the Chinese cinnamon bark extract are active on the level of specific cell receptors. Engaged in the mechanisms of glucose concentration and storage control are the reactions of phosphorylation and dephosphorylation. Enzymes called protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPases) catalyse the reactions of dephosphorylation of other enzymes, inactivating them. In vitro studies demonstrated the ability of compounds present in Chinese cinnamon bark to inhibit the activity of PTP-1 (the enzyme inactivating insulin receptors). Thanks to that mechanism, it is possible to improve glucose metabolism.
Support for the circulatory system
The are many scientific reports that describe the positive effect of compounds present in Chinese cinnamon bark on the improvement of the blood’s lipid profile. Scientists suggest that the compounds allow to maintain the normal concentration of triglycerides and cholesterol in the organism.
Studies also point out the influence of active substances in Chinese cinnamon on maintaining the right values of arterial blood pressure caused by the reduction of the contraction component. Those effects can contribute to the reduction of the risk of cardiovascular disease development, such as atherosclerosis or heart failure.
Oxygen free radicals are molecules that form naturally in the organism during many metabolic reactions. Unfortunately, they have a very negative effect on our health, for example by damaging blood vessel walls, oxidising the LDL molecules of cholesterol or attacking DNA molecules, which leads to carcinogenesis. It was proven in many studies that polyphenols present in Chinese cinnamon extracts have the ability to remove free radicals from the human organism, which can contribute to the decrease of the risk of many circulatory system diseases and cancer.
Protection for the nervous system
The human brain uses up large amounts of oxygen for metabolism, during which oxygen free radicals are formed. It is also very sensitive to their negative activity. Some scientific studies describe the possible influence of polyphenols present in Chinese cinnamon bark on the protection of nerve cells. They probably affect regulating the synthesis of proteins of the Bcl-2 (they regulate the permeability of cell membranes in mitochondria) and SIRT-1 family. Studies are also being conducted concerning the effect of active substances in Chinese cinnamon in the prevention of Alzheimer's disease.
Effective weight loss
Overweight and obesity are becoming a more and more common problem. They lead to many dangerous diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis and some types of cancer. Many scientific studies describe the influence of substances present in Chinese cinnamon in the stimulation of lipolysis (fat molecule breakdown) and the reduction of fat tissue in the organism.
To sum up, Doctor's Best Best Cinnamon Extract is a dietary supplement with a wide range of beneficial properties. It can be used for preventing cardiovascular system diseases and type 2 diabetes as well as for the antioxidant protection of cells, particularly those of the nervous system. Because of its ability to improve glucose metabolism and support the process of lipolysis, it can be consumed by sportspeople, people on a slimming diet and those who care about a healthy silhouette.
Popular spice that has a number of health-promoting properties. To fully exploit its potential, you need to take approximately 250mg per day, which in case of spices is rather impossible. Fortunately, you can take support supplements. It regulates blood sugar levels very well and therefore is often recommended for diabetics. It's best when 1 tablet is taken twice daily with a meal. Ideally taken with carbohydrate meal - as it nicely improves glucose metabolism.
