Cinnamon helps absorb sugar
An extract of cinnamon reduced risk for diabetes in pre-diabetic volunteers, according to results from a new study. Researchers recruited 24 participants who had slightly raised blood sugar levels after not eating for 8 to 14 hours, a condition known as impaired fasting glucose, which is a risk factor for diabetes.
In the double-blind trial, doctors from the Joseph Fourier University, Grenoble, France, randomly assigned the recruits to take 500 mg of standardised cinnamon extract, in two 250 mg capsules per day, or a placebo, for 12 weeks. At the end of the study, scientists…

When you google ‘Irish Fibre’ these days it does not relate to food but technology.
Fibre doesn’t receive as much praise as other nutritional buzzwords (antioxidants, calcium and omega-3 fatty acids), but it should — a food’s fibre content is a great indicator of wholesome, minimally processed foods.
The more processed a food is, the lower its fibre content will be. A whole apple provides 3 to 4 grams of fibre while a peeled apple provides 2 grams, and apple juice contains no fibre at all. The same trend is visible as whole grains are refined, as vegetables…

Want some pep in your step? Perhaps a dash of good cheer? (Who doesn’t, right?). Look no further than Select Stores shelves. Foods rich in vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids are not only super healthy, but can also increase happiness, lessen symptoms of depression, and quell anxiety.
How can foods improve our moods? It all comes down to the brain. A healthy cognitive system is essential to regulating mood, and certain nutrients have a profound impact on maintaining normal brain function. To date, researchers have studied the association between foods and the brain and identified nine nutrients that can…

With so much written about diet versus exercise and exercise versus diet, it’s easy to overlook the role hormones play in our health and wellbeing, but they can make all the difference. We’ve decided to take a closer look at the hormone insulin: What is it, and how does it relate to diabetes? Can we manipulate insulin to help us lose fat and live longer? As it turns out, we can — and pretty easily, too.
What Is Insulin and How Does It Relate to Diabetes?
Insulin is a super important hormone that helps us absorb nutrients from…

By now, you’ve probably heard a thing or two about essential oils. First used by the Egyptians and Babylonians, today essential oils can be found in everything from lotion to hand soap to shampoo. So what is it about these potent potions that has made them a holistic staple for thousands of years?
Well, essential oils have some incredible medicinal properties when inhaled or applied topically to the skin—typically the wrists, palms, or scalp. They are also the basis of aromatherapy, the practice of enhancing psychological and physical well-being through the regular use of a plant’s aromatic oils.

Eating healthy while on the road, in a hotel, or at the airport is a challenge because of limited options at food courts and restaurants. But with some special planning and packing, eating healthy on the road can be done! Try to follow the same basic guidelines of an “everyday” healthy diet — eat breakfast, eat often throughout the day to prevent hunger attacks, and eat as much fruit and vegetables as you possibly can.
Oatcakes, granola, mixed seeds and nuts, hard-boiled eggs, herbal tea bags and hot chocolate all pack easily. Try to get some protein…
