Cinnamon tea is a popular beverage that may have potential health benefits for people with diabetes. Some studies suggest that cinnamon may help lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity.
Here’s how to prepare cinnamon tea for diabetes:
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 cups of water
- Optional: a small piece of ginger or a slice of lemon
- Add the cinnamon stick and water to a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
- Reduce the heat and let the tea simmer for 10-15 minutes.
- Remove from heat and strain the tea into a cup.
- If desired, add a small piece of ginger or a slice of lemon for extra flavour.
- Enjoy your cinnamon tea while it’s still warm.
While cinnamon may have potential health benefits for people with diabetes, it should not replace any prescribed diabetes medications.
Also, talk to your healthcare provider before making any significant changes to your diet or lifestyle.
