113 – Cinnamon for Blood Sugar Support – My Interview with Dr. Richard Anderson

Cinnulin PF is the clinically studied form of cinnamon.

Dr. Richard AndersonPrint TranscriptMany of you have heard that cinnamon is beneficial for blood sugar support. For many of you that is all that you know. Most people don’t know what form of cinnamon has shown these benefits. That will all change with this interview. Dr. Richard Anderson was one of the researchers that discovered the powerful benefits of cinnamon for blood sugar support.

In this interview, Dr. Anderson will discuss the research that has after many years revealed that certain cinnamon compounds provide these benefits. Not all cinnamon is the same. There are many cinnamon products available from simple spice to specialized extracts. How do you as a consumer, decide which cinnamon extract to use? How do you know how much to use? How do you know what to expect? You will know all of this and more after listening to this interview with Dr. Anderson.

The product that we discuss is a branded, trademarked raw material or ingredient. There are numerous good supplement manufacturers who use this form of cinnamon so everyone should be able to find it. There is a reason that I favor this type of branded, clinically studied ingredient. We all want to take products that are effective. We all want products that have been shown to be safe and effective. In this case, and in many cases, it is a very specific form of a nutrient that has been shown effective. However there are many other forms of many nutrients and often these nutrients have not been shown to be either safe and/or effective. The trick is to know the difference. In this interview, Dr. Anderson will explain clearly why Cinnulin PF should be the preferred form. It is the specific cinnamon that was used in the clinical studies.

CinnamonCinnulin PF is a proprietary, patented water soluble extract of Cinnamomum Burmannii. The proprietary extraction process helps isolate key actives and filter out potential toxins found in whole cinnamon. It is the only extract standardized for doubly linked Type-A Polymers, shown in clinical research to have a host of health benefits, particularly those related to Metabolic Syndrome.

As a USDA scientist, Dr. Richard A. Anderson has done extensive research regarding the mechanism of action of the water soluble extracts of cinnamon. These doubly linked Type-A Polymers have been shown to support healthy blood pressure in healthy individuals. Cinnulin PF also appears to support glucose transport mechanisms by enhancing the insulin signaling pathways, through improving glucose transporter 1 and 2 and insulin receptor protein gene expression. This is an important discovery because blood sugar issues are a growing epidemic with serious consequences.
