I'm new here, but, I've got a tip I want to share with you. You can ask your doctor about it if you wish. I opted not to tell mine about cinnamon. More specifically, it's cinnamomum cassia(bark) plus Chromium. I take 2 1,000 milligrams of cinnamon after breakfast and dinner. It has helped me lose 25 pounds!!! I went from having to test my blood sugar everyday to every other day or 3 times a week. Hope this helps some of you living with Type 2 diabetes.

It has to be true cinnamon a lot of the cinnamon we use and buy is called cassia that is NOT true cinnamon there is a difference look it up.. True cinnamon should say cinnamon zelanicum or cinnamon non-irradiated.. I have purchased a couple of the wrong capsules myself because I didn't know what to look for..

I'm taking a pill of cinnamon of 2000mg a day. Haven't lost a pound, but my sugars do seem to be down or in more control. Only been doing this for a month so my vote is still out. Have one more bottle to take. Kind of expensive.

Howdy Roselove! Cinnamon has been discussed a great deal on DC. A list of discussions from the past about cinnamon here ~

I take a cinnamon + chromium supplimint every day. I am glad you have had success with it. I take 2, 1000 mg capsules twice a day , and still have no noticable benefit. So it doesn't work for everyone! Glad it works for you

Blessings to you and yours

If you are interested in more responses, take a look at the other recent discussions about cinnamon and chromium. You may find folks won't respond too much since we just talked about this extensively recently.
