Cinnamon Spice is Nice for Type 2 Diabetics
Posted: June 18, 2006

In a recent double-blind study of seventy-nine type 2 diabetics on oral antidiabetic medication or a special diet (but not on insulin therapy), subjects were randomly assigned to take either a cinnamon extract or a placebo (inactive ingredient) capsule three times a day for four months. The amount of cinnamon extract was equivalent to three grams, or a little less than one teaspoon, of cinnamon powder per day. Results showed a significantly better reduction in fasting glucose levels in the cinnamon group (10.3%) than the placebo group (3.4%). This decrease in fasting glucose was significantly correlated with initial concentrations, suggesting that subjects with a higher initial glucose level may have more benefit from cinnamon intake. No significant side effects were reported.

The researchers concluded, “The cinnamon extract seems to have a moderate effect in reducing fasting [blood] glucose concentrations in diabetic patients with poor glycaemic control.”

Sweet Cinnamon Sensations for Your Diet

The following are simple ideas on how to add this fragrant, sweet spice into your diet without using added table sugar:


Warm milk[Not recommended by Risingsu] (or soymilk) with cinnamon and nutmeg
+ [Oat mIlk or Almond Milk would be my choice]

French toast with cinnamon and a healthy sugar alternative

Sprinkled cinnamon over baked apples or pears

Home-baked, high-fiber, cinnamon muffins with fruit sweetener

Cinnamon extract capsules
