Nutrition news from around the world!

DID YOU KNOW THE BENEFITS OF ADDING CINNAMON TO FOODS?

A recent study has found that adding cinnamon to your food may help to control blood sugar levels!

  • Researchers involved in a 12-week study have found that adding 500mg (roughly about a quarter tsp) of cinnamon to foods may help to control blood sugar levels in people with prediabetes and help to slow down any progression to type 2 diabetes. Whilst management of diabetes involves a multi-factorial approach, this is a promising piece of research however more research is certainly needed.
  • Our recipe page has been updated this week to include a tasty and simple Cinnamon Banana recipe to get you started! Or how about surprising the family this weekend with Baked Banana and Cinnamon Oatmeal or some Heart-Warming Cinnamon Oranges?!

This week on daveynutrition.com we had some fantastic new additions to the website!
