The water soluble extract of cinnamon, called Cinnulin PF, has been clinically shown to have a host of health benefits, particularly relating to metabolic syndrome. Cinnulin PF is the only extract standardized for doubly linked Type-A Polymers. In one study (Ziegenfuss, et al 2007) 83% of those given the active Type A Polymers experienced a significant decrease in fasting blood sugar (about an 8% drop), compared to only 33% in the placebo group. Moreover, subjects additionally showed statistically lower body fat, enhanced lean body mass, lower systolic blood pressure and saw improvements in various antioxidant measures.
In another study (Jarvill-Taylor, Anderson, Graves, et al 2001) the Type A Polymers increased glucose metabolism roughly 20-fold in vitro. In animals, the doubly linked Type-A Polymers appear to have supporting effects on reducing blood pressure. In humans, Cinnulin PF has been shown to support glucose transport mechanisms by enhancing the insulin signaling pathways. Cinnulin PF helps metabolic syndrome by supporting healthy glucose levels, body composition and blood pressure in healthy individuals.
