Ditch Sugar Cravings With Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

Ditch Sugar Cravings With Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
"Sugar does induce the same responses in the region of the brain known as the “reward center”—technically, the nucleus accumbens—as do nicotine, cocaine, heroin, and alcohol."
- Gary Taubes, The Case Against Sugar
Hello friend!
When do you crave sugar?  During an afternoon slump?  Dessert after a great meal?  Late-night binging? If you answer yes to any (or all!) of these, you're not alone.

Sugar has become ingrained in our diet. The sweet stuff is a ubiquitous source of calories in the Western diet, even though experts agree that sugar is a major contributor to many major diseases.

In fact, it's the daily consumption of sugar that is literally destroying our health. Dr. Alan Greene, a pediatrician who sits on the board of the Institute for Responsible Nutrition, says sugar-sweetened beverages, along with cakes, cookies, and ice cream, are some of the major offenders, but hidden sources of added sugars are also a concern. He states, “What happens is that Americans are having dessert several times a day and don’t know it."

Reducing sugar can be tricky, as they're more than fifty ingredient names that are code for "sugar".


As you work to reduce or eliminate sugar from your diet, be sure to check for these hidden sugars!

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: CINNAMON BARK
Cinnamon was used throughout history to help balance blood sugar levels. In recent times it's been found to help alleviate sugar cravings as well.

When your blood sugar levels are unstable, you may find yourself overeating and gaining weight. Combine this with the fact that when your energy levels are low it's difficult to exercise and burn calories, and you wind up with some extra stubborn weight.

Using cinnamon oil can help you overcome these issues that are standing in your way! Check out this study on the effects of cinnamon on glucose levels!

John Yudkin
Happy New Year, friend!

A new year, and a new decade, is upon us! I hope your holidays were merry and filled with happy memories, and that you're ready to jump into a new decade with anticipation for what's to come!

While we generally promote a healthy lifestyle, including nutrition, all bets are off when it comes to holiday eating! Cookies for breakfast? Candy for a snack? Sweets and treats galore? That just about sums up the holidays for many of us!
The good news is that essential oils can really be your best friend when you're ready to get rid of your sugar cravings once and for all! This month we'll be learning a little bit about how you can use essential oils and NingXia Red to kick your sugar habit.

KICK THE SUGAR WITH ESSENTIAL OILS: GRAPEFRUIT
Grapefruit is basically the all-in-one sugar kicker! It reduces feelings of hunger, wards off carb and sugar cravings (praise hands!), it may help balance blood sugar, and induces feelings of positivity (which can help combat emotional eating).

Often the afternoons bring both a slump in energy and those lovely cravings for something sweet. That's a great time to grab Grapefruit Vitality and add a drop or two to sparkling water for a refreshing drink. Or use the Sugar Snap (Out of It) roller to help curb your craving.

Fun fact: Grapefruit essential oil has properties that may prevent weight gain (here’s the science).
