Cinnamon for weight loss and Type 2 Diabetes

I have read that Cinnamon is really good for loosing weight, speeding up your metabolism, leveling your blood sugar, and helps get rid of fat. So I have been trying it for 6 days now. I have been putting 2 drops of DoTERRA's Cinnamon Oil in my mouth 2 times a day with food. Along with my diet,  exercise, vitamins, and Slim and Sassy Shake I have lost 9 lbs. I haven't been starving myself either. Ive been watching what I eat but its easy because when I take the Cinnamon I lose any cravings for sweets which is my main problem because I love my baked goods. I am amazed how much weight I have lost in such a short amount of time. Its a little spicy but it has a sweet taste to it so I think its really good! 

Here is a little information you can read about Cinnamon.

Weight loss advantages

Through effects of slowing food glucose absorption, and enhancing the body’s ability to use glucose in metabolically active cells via direction of insulin, rather than store it away as fat, Cinnamon improves body composition. The body accumulates less fat as a result of ideally-regulated blood sugar concentrations. 
Cinnamon can improve glucose use and blood concentrations, which are known to favorably influence body fat levels (causing body fat levels to decrease – which is much of the premise of lower carbohydrate and lower glycemic index diets).

Blood sugar regulation benefitsMore recently, scientists have shown benefits of Cinnamon for preventing and treating blood sugar abnormalities that lead to Metabolic Syndrome and diabetes. Metabolic Syndrome is a cluster of symptoms that highly predispose a person to more chronic diseases, and include insulin resistance, elevated glucose, dyslipidemia, inflammation, decreased antioxidant activity, obesity and increased glycation of body proteins.
In several different cell, animal and human whole body studies, Cinnamon has been shown to improve these variables. It also has been shown to improve fasting blood glucose levels, lean body mass, blood pressure and gastric (stomach) emptying in people with and without type 2 diabetes and polycystic ovary syndrome. There are several ways it can potentially modify one’s risk factors for this disease.  Some of the mechanisms include:

•    Delayed stomach emptying which can reduce the rate of absorption of glucose from food and prevent increases in blood triglycerides (excess  blood glucose is converted to fats within the liver)

•    Flavanoid-supressed glucose absorption – the compounds in cinnamon can reduce food sugar uptake intrinsically (to an extent; it won’t work if you take in excessive amounts of sugar)

•    Polyphenols in Cinnamon can mimic the effects of insulin on cellular blood glucose uptake through a number of different pathways

A few other thing Cinnamon is really good for
•    Reduces mold growth in bread products (is a fungicide)
•    Can increase resistance to and help fight the common       cold by battling congestion and inducing perspiration
•    Reduces body temperature due to fever
•    Alleviates mental stress
•    Improves memory and attention
•    Relieves joint pain due to arthritis
•    Reduces headaches and migraines
•    Treats diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and flatulence
•    Bad Breath
