Many people are aware that cinnamon has very  Blood Balance Formula Review potent activities against diabetes - to such an extent that pharmaceutical companies are testing various extracts as treatments for this ubiquitous disease. Now a new study published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry confirms cinnamon's place as one of the most important anti-diabetic spices. 

In this study Xiaofang Peng and his colleagues from the LKS Faculty of Medicine at the University of Hong Kong found that proanthocyanidins in cinnamon inhibited a group of compounds called Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs) that are associated with both the initiation and progression of type II diabetes. Cinnamon contains several flavonol compounds called proanthocyanidins that the researchers found to inhibit the formation and pathogenic activity of AGEs.

AGEs form when sugar molecules (especially fructose) join together, either in the body or during cooking, with protein or fat molecules. Furthermore these toxic compounds are not readily excreted and remain in the body for a very long time. No only have AGEs been implicated in the cause and progression of diabetes, they are also strongly associated with other illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, asthma, and kidney disease.
