Cinnamon Could Be The Secret Ingredient To Weight Loss

Cinnamon Could Be The Secret Ingredient To Weight Loss

The addition of CA jump-started the metabolic process, and the heat helped the cells burn off the lipids.

It's no miracle food, but cinnamon might someday be used to fight obesity.

This new study from the team of researchers at the University of MI reports that this oil can burn fat in humans as well.

The secret lies in the compound called cinnamaldehyde (or cinnamic aldehyde), which not only gives the seasoning a unique flavor, but also protects the body from hyperglycemia and obesity. Findings of a new study have shown that the popular spice can boost metabolism and may aid in weight loss. "Wu said, "...we wanted to figure out how - what pathway might be involved, what it looked like in mice and what it looked like in human cells". These scientists, led by Jun Wu, a research assistant professor at the University of Michigan's Life Sciences Institute, noticed that in adipocytes treated with cinnamaldehyde, cell signaling and gene expression were altered. Now, this was beneficial to our ancestors because our species didn't use to have access to high-fat foods, and this stored energy helped humans survived in its early stages from cold temperatures and a lack of food.

However, with the rising obesity epidemic, researchers have been looking for ways to prompt fat cells to activate thermogenesis, turning those fat-burning processes back on.

'Cinnamon has been part of our diets for thousands of years, and people generally enjoy it, ' says Jun. "So if it can help protect against obesity, too, it may offer an approach to metabolic health that is easier for patients to adhere to", explained Wu.

CBS and Dish Network reach deal ending retransmission dispute
The CBS blackout on Dish came amid much tension between network owners like CBS and pay-TV distributor such as Dish. CBS offers viewers a web-based streaming subscription option for $5.99 per month.

Importantly, both acute and chronic effects of CA were observed in human adipose stem cells isolated from multiple donors of different ethnicities and ages and with a variety of body mass indexes (BMI). There is an increased in genetic workings of proteins Ucp1 and Fgf21 which normally play a role in metabolism and its regulations.

Cinnamon's trusted fame in the food industry may convince patients to stick to a cinnamon-based treatment than to a traditional drug regimen, said researchers on an optimistic note.

"It's only been relatively recently that energy surplus has become a problem", Wu said in the statement.

Adipocytes store fat in the form of lipids. "Throughout evolution, the opposite-energy deficiency-has been the problem".

While there's more research to be done, it looks promising. However, there is slight difference between cinnamon grown in Sri Lanka (also called as Ceylon Cinnamon) and cinnamon grown in India (termed as Cassia). First, Wu believes that more studies will be needed to further understand the metabolic benefits of cinnamaldehyde, and we don't know its side effects yet. In one study, researchers found that weight problem is one of the top factors that contribute to the development of cancer.
