Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Smoothie

Did you know combining oats and green apples is a huge nutrition boost?!

Both on their own are pretty spectacular, but combining them provides many synergistic benefits.

** The fiber in oats and the pectin in apples kick starts your metabolism, helping you detox and burn fat.

** The duo can also absorb more toxins together, and eliminate bad cholesterol from your blood. The combo also helps regulate blood pressure levels.

** And thanks to the body’s slow absorption of the carbohydrates, you’ll feel full longer, which in turn means it is good for weight management.

Adding cinnamon to this is not only tasty, but cinnamon has been shown to control blood sugar levels.

According to Dr. Mercola:

“Researchers have investigated the “insulin-like” effects of cinnamon for a number of years now, and as the latest study in Diabetic Medicine shows, cinnamon keeps proving it’s a viable contender in the fight against diabetes.

Among this spice’s most impressive health benefits is its impact on blood sugar and ability to improve glucose control.

For example, just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day has previously been shown to significantly reduce blood sugar levels, triglycerides, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.”
