The Cinnamon And Diabetes Connection

Cinnamon is a spice that comes from the inner bark of trees belonging to the genus Cinnamomum. Reports suggest that this spice has been in use since the time of the Egyptians, as early as 2000 years ago.

    Is cinnamon helpful and if so, which brand is best and safest?

    Hello,
    I'm still looking for ways to bring down blood sugar and starting putting cinnamon in my tea with meals... wow! Seems to work very well!! Anyway, I read more about it and found out that cassia, which is typical of the type of cinnamon we have in the U.S., isn't that good for you. Apparently, it has higher levels of coumarin, which is damaging to the liver. Do any of you have advice on the best cinnamon to get and which doses are good? I read that ceylon is good. Anyone have a company they use when ordering? I just noticed that when I take some at night, my fasting blood sugar goes down to the 80's by morning. After meals, my numbers go down by at least 20-25 points from what is typical for a given meal... big difference for me. I found that taking the supplements doesn't seem to have any effect... but the table cinnamon sure does... granted, I take about 1/2 tsp each time, which I think might be too much... but at least if I find a better version and a healthier dose, that could a good thing? What do you guys think? Thanks so much for the support! I don't know what I'd do without this group of great people!

    Most of us type 2s have tried these things for years. It never did anything for me, I ordered both the pills and added it to my meals and my bs was always high. For some just simple things work, if you young or just been dx these things might help.
