Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is Cinnergen?
Cinnergen is a liquid whole food nutritional supplement that enhances your diet by providing the vital nutrients many of which are deficient or may be missing altogether from a normal diet your body needs to properly metabolize sugar and use it as energy. The whole food concentrates in Cinnergen include amino acids, vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, enzymes, bioflavonoids, antioxidants and several phyto chemicals, all of which are beneficial to the body. Better still, Cinnergen delivers these nutrients in proper proportion for the body to use them immediately.
What does Cinnergen do?
Very simply, Cinnergen delivers concentrated nutrition to help the body efficiently and effectively metabolize sugar. One of the main reasons blood sugar imbalances occur is because the typical diet is not only high in sugar but also deficient in several of the vital nutrients the body needs to properly process sugar and turn it into energy. If these nutrients are not provided by the foods we eat, our bodies are forced to leach them from elsewhere in the system. As a whole food complex, Cinnergen provides several key ingredients that have been found through emerging science and years of research to improve digestion and utilization of sugar. As the body becomes more efficient with glucose metabolism, overall health is improved.
Can I take and get benefits from Cinnergen even if I do not have blood sugar imbalances?
It is estimated that 47 million US residents have metabolic syndrome1 (also referred to as insulin resistance). Insulin resistance is a complex process whereby the body loses its ability to use the insulin it secretes to metabolize blood sugar inside the cells for energy. Consequently, as this person becomes tired or fatigued, he or she feels the need to eat even more sugar. As this process escalates, sensitivity is further reduced. Blood sugar continues to rise, as does insulin production. These two factors contribute to a wide array of health problems often way before and independent of the onset of a more serious blood sugar problem diagnosed by a physician.
How do I know if I have insulin resistance?
Oftentimes hypoglycemia which is low blood sugar precedes diabetes. This is when the system overreacts to ingested sugar and the insulin response is too strong. As a result, blood sugar drops, weakness and other symptoms ensue, and there is an overwhelming need to eat more sugar. If this is a typical pattern, there is a good chance that hypoglycemia is present. If healthy nutritional guidelines are not implemented there is a strong possibility that at some point in the future hyperglycemia or diabetes will occur. Other indications include a constant need to drink fluids, and excessive urination. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) estimates that 57 million people are pre-diabetic.2
Is there any scientific research that Cinnergen’s™ ingredients help with blood sugar?
Yes. Cinnamon bark has been shown in independent clinical research to make insulin work more efficiently. It helps stimulate the production of glucose-burning enzymes and boosts insulin’s effectiveness. Recent research has identified two unique natural compounds present in Blueberry Leaf caffeoylquinic acid and caffeic acids. New studies suggest that when taken together these two compounds may simultaneously help to reduce dietary glucose absorption in the intestines, help reduce glucose synthesis in the liver, and speed up the metabolism of glucose. Coincidentally, chlorogenic and caffeic have also recently been discovered in the Caucasian herbal folk remedy most renowned for the treatment of blood sugar problems: Blueberry leaves.
How soon will I see results?
Everyone’s body chemistry is different so corrections in blood sugar will vary with the individual. That being said, with regular use the effects of Cinnergen can be felt fairly quickly. Obviously if you have high blood sugar, the results will be greatly dependent on your current state of health, what your diet is like, and if you exercise regularly. Blood sugar levels may begin to really decline in about 3 to 4 weeks and continue to do so thereafter. On the other hand, because Cinnergen is such a concentrated source of easily digested and utilized nutrients, overall feelings of increased energy, less fatigue, better alertness and a general sense of well-being may be noticeable after only several days of use.
Can I use Cinnergen with other supplements or medications?
Cinnergen is made from whole foods, so you can use it with virtually all supplements. It should actually help increase the effectiveness of other supplements you may be taking. Again, because Cinnergen is a whole food supplement, it can be taken in conjunction with medications. If you are taking medications, however, it is strongly suggested that you check with your physician before using Cinnergen. If you are taking medications to lower blood sugar or cholesterol, you must check your levels, especially blood sugar, several times a week. This is to ensure that your blood sugar does not drop too much, which is also not healthy.
Can I use Cinnergen over a long period of time?
Absolutely. Cinnergen is a whole food supplement with nutrient profiles made and balanced by nature. So just like food, it can be used every day. Unlike many foods, though, it is concentrated with hundreds of nutrients, many of which are deficient or absent from our normal diets.
How do I take Cinnergen?
Take one fluid ounce (1 capful) per day after a meal.
Why is Cinnergen in a liquid form?
In most cases, liquid formulas will work faster than solids. They tend to digest easier and are assimilated into the system with more efficiency. This is important because many people have digestive weakness, especially those already compromised by blood sugar problems. There is, however, one potential concern with liquid supplements. And that’s how they taste. Well, don’t worry. Cinnergen tastes great!
What other benefits can I expect?
Regular use of Cinnergen can improve energy and alertness, improve sleep and mood, and enhance overall wellbeing. Use of Cinnergen has a cumulative effect; you will see even greater improvement with continued use.
