Discover the potential of Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil for 8 important health issues. An exotic fragrance with a spicy hot and sweet taste. This incredible essential oil has some amazing properties. A gift from the Gods.
Some people think it is strange to ingest essential oils, but as alternative practitioners’ know, essential oils can deliver powerful benefits. Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil sits at the top of this pyramid of some renowned essential oils. Some say it is the elixir of life itself. Ceylon Cinnamon Bark oil is used quite extensively in the food industry, chief among them Coca Cola.
There is some evidence that it is the Cinnamaldehyde component of Cinnamon Bark Oil that seems to be effective for blood sugar control. This study found it the most effective compared to berberine (Ber), and metformin (Met) at controlling blood sugar levels. Another study found Cinnamaldehyde from Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum) reduced plasma glucose concentration significantly (p<0.05) in a dose-dependent manner (63.29%). In a study from Sri Lanka Ceylon Cinnamon was found to have an effect on blood sugar control in a rat model. In this case Cinnamon was extracted from the cinnamon bark through a water distillation process similar to steam distillation that is usually used to make Bark Oil.
Of course there is considerable debate whether Cinnamaldehyde merely masks the symptoms of diabetes by modulating blood sugar control or whether it addresses the insulin production issue which effects blood sugar levels. Considering that most commercial medications do the same thing without promising a cure per se, it is well worth considering Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil.
Our customers have reported remarkable results in dropping blood sugar levels. It has minimal side effects and well worth exploring.
