Cinnamon & Spice and Everything Nice

by Debi Pearl

February 2007

Cinnamon has become a good friend to me this past year. Diabetes runs in my family. When I was expecting my third baby I found it necessary to watch my diet in order to maintain a normal blood sugar level. I had to eat protein every three hours--a handful of peanuts, a glass of fresh milk, or a bite of tuna, just to keep from feeling like I was going to forget who I was. It was scary not having a clear mind. My sugar level would go low or high, depending on when and what I ate. If it was low, I felt weak and confused; if it went high, I felt agitated. The high sugar level did not affect my performance that much, but I knew from reading that it can be a killer. I therefore determined to learn what to eat in order to stabilize my sugar level. During my research I came to understand the function of the pancreas and how different foods affect it. A doctor can give you general advice, but it doesn't have the same force as knowledge acquired through your own research. Only when you seriously study for yourself will you gain control of your own health. Although cinnamon can not replace eating correctly, sometimes eating correctly is not enough to control your sugar levels. That is when cinnamon can mean the difference between insulin dependence and a pancreas functioning sufficiently to maintain balance on its own. It is amazing how much cinnamon has helped me.

Research shows that cinnamon does improve type 2 diabetics' ability to respond to insulin, thus helping to normalize blood sugar levels. Compounds in cinnamon stimulate insulin receptors while at the same time inhibiting an enzyme that deactivates them, thus significantly improving the cells' ability to use glucose. Studies have shown that less than half a teaspoon per day reduces blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. In testing, even when participants added sweets to their diets, cinnamon was able to help control their blood levels. This amount of cinnamon also significantly lowers LDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Cinnamon also has the remarkable ability to reduce inflammation in the body. Inflammation is now being targeted as a major killer.

When I started using cinnamon regularly, I noticed as I worked at my computer that my mind was sharper. I thought it was due to my sugar level being corrected, but since studying all the new research I have discovered that just smelling the odor of cinnamon boosts brain activity. Tests have been conducted where participants have been exposed to different pleasant odors while being tested on several tasks such as crossword skills, matching cards, and remembering flash card sequences. Cinnamon emerged as the clear winner in producing positive effects on brain function. So when I drink Shoshanna's Doctor Cinnamon Tea and breathe in its wonderful fragrance, I smile because I know my brain function is at a peak.

Cinnamon is the bark of a tree and comes powdered, chopped, or as dried bark rolled into sticks. There are many companies now carrying cinnamon in capsules that are easy to take as a supplement, yet common sense tells me that dumping all the cinnamon in the body in one serving is not wise. As in all foods and supplements, adding a little here and a little there is much safer and more natural for the body to absorb. I keep the bark sticks at my desk and use them to stir (steeping in liquid) my tea, coffee, chocolate, and fruit drinks. It adds a pleasant taste, and each stick lasts several days. When my grandchildren spot the bag of cinnamon sticks, they ask for one to chew on. We often have little tea parties, and each child stirs her tea with her own cinnamon stick. It is totally fun. As they use their cinnamon sticks like straws, spoons, or chew on them, I know their little bodies are absorbing manganese, iron, calcium, and dietary fiber.

Because I enjoy drinking herbal teas, Shoshanna and I started working together to come up with the best tasting and healthiest herbal blends that we could. (She is strong on flavor, and I am best at health.) After lots of experimenting with different herbs, we finally came up with several blends of herbs that taste great while enhancing health in various areas. My favorite blend is called Doctor Cinnamon. It is my favorite because it tastes great and it helps control my blood sugar level, even when I eat a bite of cake. Just two or three cups of this tea a day helps keep my blood sugar normal. As with most of Shoshanna's Doctor herbal blend teas, Doctor Cinnamon has a base of green tea because of green tea's extraordinary healing properties.

Here are a few other ways we enjoy cinnamon:
- Mike loves cinnamon toast. We start with whole wheat bread, drizzled with butter or flax seed oil, honey, and then heavily sprinkled with cinnamon. Toast, lying flat, until golden brown.
- Stirring hot chocolate with a cinnamon stick really gives it a delicious taste.
- Adding cinnamon to breakfast cereal could help start the day a little healthier, and it makes the cereal a lot better, especially oatmeal or rice.

This was the first cup of tea I've ever had that I was disappointed that I had finished my cup!

Is this ok to drink when trying to conceive?
by Bethany on Jan 20, 2014

I LOVE this tea, and have been drinking it regularly. I am not currently pregnant, but my husband and I are trying to conceive our first child. Is this safe to drink during this time? Would it be safe to continue drinking into my first trimester? Thank you so much!

    Re: Is this ok to drink when trying to conceive?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 20, 2014

    Hello, since you have already been drinking regularly before getting pregnant you can continue doing so through all of pregnancy. Thanks!

Ok During Pregnancy & Nursing?
by PaulaG on Jan 13, 2014

Just checking to see if this tea is ok during pregnancy & nursing. Thanks!

    Re: Ok During Pregnancy & Nursing?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 15, 2014

    Hello, I would recommend waiting until your 2nd trimester to start drinking unless you have been drinking teas with Red Raspberry already throughout the beginning of pregnancy. Other than that you are good to drink whenever. Enjoy!

Wonderful remedies God's provided!
by Faith on Sep 30, 2013

We just just received the order my sister in law put in for us and we are so thankful for all the wonderful herbs God made and you make available at BHS! The Dr. Cinnamon tea is amazing! My husband really likes iced tea so I was wondering about your recommendations for how to make iced tea with Dr. Cinnamon. Thank you!

    Re: Wonderful remedies God's provided!
    by Bulk Herb Store on Sep 30, 2013

    You could simply steep a half a cup of the blended herbs in simmering water for 20 to 25 minutes. Add more or less for taste! Thanks!

About to Order - Is this a tea bag or loose?
by Iris on Jun 15, 2013

I am about to place an order. Is the tea "loose" or bagged. I am wondering if I need to buy a strainer before it arrives?

    Re: About to Order - Is this a tea bag or loose?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jun 17, 2013

    Yes this is the loose tea and is not in individual tea bags.

How to make Dr. Cinnamon

Hi, how much of each herb would I mix together to create this myself? I am purchasing the herbs individually and want to make this. Thanks.

    We can't give out our recipes but it's ok to mix and match for yourself! Have fun with it!

Our whole family enjoys this tea. It is certainly a tasty blend of flavors.

by Amy on Dec 3, 2012

I actually am a bit disappoint with the taste of this tea. Can someone give me the amount of tea to brew and for how long? Maybe that will help...

    Re: Brewing
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 22, 2013

    We usually recommend adding 1-2 tsp. of the tea per 8 oz. cup of water and let steep for 5-10 minutes before straining. Sweeten with honey or other natural sweetener if desired! Enjoy!!

I will never be without this tea!
by S. Sanders on Oct 14, 2010

Ever since I started having my period when I was a teenager (I'm now in my 30's), the cramps have been so bad that I would literally have to take two ibuprofen every two hours for the first three days, just so I could function, and I'm a person who hates taking any sort of medication-it was truly out of necessity. The cramps were so bad that a once in college, I actually blacked out from the pain. A couple months ago, I had ordered the Dr. Cinnamon tea - just because it sounded good - and I loved the taste! Realizing it contained Red Raspberry leaf, I decided to see if it would help relieve the cramps of my periods (sorry if this is too personal) - anyway . . . I started drinking it continually throughout the first three days of my period (generally the worst days) and to my utter delight, I experienced NO cramps - at all!!!! NONE!!! This tea works wonders for me - making 'that time of the month' no longer something to dread. After using this tea instead of ibuprofen for three months, I can honestly say I will never be without this tea for that time of the month again! Thank you for providing such a wonderful product!

It's my favorite!
by Paula on Mar 19, 2009

I've also just ordered more Dr Cinnamon tea. It's my favorite tea!

"the BEST tea i've ever had"
by Michelle on Jan 30, 2008

"I normally don't do reviews, but I just had to write in and tell you how much I enjoy the Dr. Cinnamon tea! A friend recently let me try it and I can easily say that it's the best tea I've ever had. I love how you incorporated cinnamon, green tea and the orange peel all into one.
Well done! ~ Michelle

Thanks so much for including your birth story. People need to hear about birth the way God designed it to be!! My husband and I actually visited the No Greater Joy offices the first weekend in August, but missed you because you were oh so with baby : )

So we were eager to hear the news. Bradley Childbirth is fantastic- I'm a doula and I've heard many "natural childbirth" perspectives, but I love how the Bradley method really encourages women to focus in on what their body is doing- and to give in to this process.

I liken it to trusting God- even when there is much pain/pressure!

So, we're sorry we missed meeting you but rejoice over Penelope Jane's birth!

Blessings, The Montmenys
