Keto Supplements: Ceylon Cinnamon Capsules

Cinnamon is one of my favorite ingredients! It is absolutely delicious but it’s also so good for us!

“Research has supported the benefits of cinnamon by showing its ability to support healthy immune and cellular function, healthy carbohydrate metabolism, promote normal digestion, improve blood glucose control, combat inflammation, and support healthy cardiovascular function.” -Equip Foods

However, It is really hard to consume enough cinnamon in one day to get all of these amazing benefits. (There are only so many Fat Head Cinnamon Rolls a girl can eat!)

That’s why I was so grateful when I found out that Equip foods was launching their Ceylon Cinnamon Supplement!

Every serving (2 caps) of Equip Cinnamon Caps contains 1,200 mg of Ceylon Cinnamon.  Ceylon Cinnamon is more beneficial than other types of Cinnamon. It is free of Cassia and other compounds that are said to be toxic in large doses.

Equip Cinnamon caps are known to help with digestion, give you more energy, and even reduce the effects of a higher carb meal. Cinnamon is also famous for being an anti-inflammatory.

Equip found a way to make getting all of the benefits of large quantities of cinnamon with out having to endure a mouthful of spice or a bellyache. These Ceylon Cinnamon Caps are made with the highest quality ingredients and were designed to fit into your Keto Lifestyle.

KETO RECIPE: Cinnamon Almonds

Almonds are one of my favorite keto snacks. I keep them at my desk or in my bag for a perfect little pick me up if I am feeling low in energy or hungry. And I LOVE cinnamon! In addition to its tasty spice, it also has a lot of health benefits. It is naturally anti-inflammatory and is really good for our skin.

You can add some sweetener to this recipe if you are looking for a sweet keto snack. I prefer the savory combination of pink salt and cinnamon. 

I love pairing these almonds with some Keto Chocolate

KETO FIND: Turmeric Blend+ Capsules

Inflammation wreaks havoc on our bodies. As an autoimmune warrior, I know this all to well. My quest to reduce inflammation is what brought me to Keto. I am happy to say that I continue to feel the anti-inflammatory benefits of a ketogenic lifestyle.

The fight against inflammation is on-going and effects many of us. Athletes constantly battle inflammation in their joints.  Traveling, especially air travel can cause inflammation that leads to lowered immune systems and illness.

Over the years, I have heard about turmeric and many other ingredients that have anti-inflammatory properties: ingredients that have been used in folk medicine for thousands of years. I’ve tried many of them out, but in my busy schedule, there is no time to take 45 different supplements a day. I like simple straight-forward supplements. That’s why I was so excited when I was looking around Equip’s website the other day and happened upon the Turmeric Blend+ Capsules.

 

 

This all-natural anti-inflammatory blend is made with turmeric, ginger, black pepper fruit extract, and berberine. They are gluten, soy, whey, and filler free. Equip claims that this supplement can boost energy, reduce inflammation, and help speed recovery rates.  

I love that is made with real foods. But like all lifestyle changes, consistency is key. They say you should take it daily for 4-6 weeks before expecting to feel any real results.
