If you had told someone, just a few years ago, that they should be taking cinnamon for its medicinal properties, you would have been laughed at. How do we know this? We were doing just that at Greenbush Natural. Based on the recommendations of Dr. James Duke and some early research on the herb, we added it to our medicinal herb lineup. It did not do well. Fast forward a few years. New research has confirmed the many medicinal uses. Doctors, nutritionists and health magazines promote the herb on a daily basis and the popularity has exploded. Cinnamon is now our third best selling herb capsule and may be on its way to the top.
Consider these reasons for the popularity of the herb:
-Brain Function: Recent studies showed cinnamon improved memory and the ability to process information. Further studies are underway to confirm the use of the herb in improving mental function in Alzheimer's patients and the elderly as well as for anxiety.
-Belly Fat: Abdominal fat has long been associated with prediabetes since the digestive system tends to store excess glucose as fat there. Cinnamon reduces insulin resistance allowing the system to process the excess glucose and reduce belly fat possibly reducing the chances of developing Type II diabetes.
-Blood Sugar Control: Researchers in a Maryland USDA center accidentally discovered that cinnamon, administered in apple pie of all things, reduced blood glucose levels and insulin resistance as well as reducing cholesterol levels. Further studies confirmed the findings and much interest has developed in finding if cinnamon can help to control blood sugar.
-Cholesterol: A 2003 study published in the Journal of Food Medicine showed that cinnamon improved overall cholesterol levels by lowering bad LDL cholesterol while raising good HDL levels. The same study confirmed lower blood sugar and triglyceride levels as well.
-Urinary Tract and Yeast Infections: German studies indicate that cinnamon completely eliminates the bacteria that cause urinary tract infections as well as the fungus that causes yeast infections.
-Ulcer Prevention and Digestive Problems: A Japanese study indicates that cinnamon soothes the digestive tract and helps to prevent ulcers. Cinnamon is one of the world's most common and popular spices. Much like ginger root and turmeric, we seem to have another common herb that would deserve wonder drug status if it were made by a drug company.
When buying herbal medicines be sure to look at the ingredients. Greenbush herbs have no fillers and are never irradiated or sprayed with pesticides. The extracts are alcohol free, medicinal strength and holistically balanced. Manufactured in the US. FDA inspected. Good Manufacturing Practices guidelines. Why not buy the best. Your health depends on it.
Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts: Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation®. Bio-Chelation® describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.
Holistically Balanced Herbal Extracts: It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant's constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).
