Cinnamon Again: What's It Do For Type 2s?

| Nov 15, 2007

In a recent three-month study, 43 non-insulin-dependent people with type 2 diabetes were given either a daily dose of 1000 milligrams of cinnamon or a placebo.

At the end of the study, there was not a single difference between the two groups with regard to average blood sugars, insulin levels, or cholesterol.

In contrast, a previous study found that a daily cinnamon hit caused a dip in blood sugar and cholesterol in people with type 2. None of that first group was taking diabetes medicines, however, unlike the current group, most of whom were on diabetes medications.
