Cinnamon Keto Coffee
CINNAMON KETO COFFEE
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
The addition of cinnamon to this simple keto coffee provides additional support for insulin signaling and fat burn with blood sugar balance. This spice is often paired with sweet recipes but its most notable feature is that it contains chromium which is a micronutrient that actually can reduce blood sugar levels by increasing glucose metabolism. The reduction in glucose levels is not only beneficial for those with prediabetes and diabetes but it is also beneficial for those looking to lose weight. When our blood sugar levels are elevated this causes the body to produce insulin which is a pro-inflammatory hormone that signals the body to store fat rather than break down fat for fuel. Incorporating ceylon or true cinnamon in your diet provides an excellent source of chromium to promote healthy body composition!
