Ceylon cinnamon to be exact is known as the “true” cinnamon in the spice world. It has been shown to dramatically reduce insulin resistance, which means lowering blood sugar levels. Cinnamon also decreases the amount of glucose entering the bloodstream after a meal by interfering with those pesky digestive enzymes that slow the breakdown of carbohydrates. All the great benefits of this spice make it hard not to fall in love with.
Cucurmin, the compound turmeric comes from, has poor bioavailability. That’s where black pepper comes in and helps the body to absorb the turmeric! It’s not just turmeric’s personal transportation into our bodies, it has its own health benefits too: enhancing digestion, regulating nerve signals, and boosting metabolism.
