You can, but there are two kinds of cinnamon and the common one in the grocery store is not the one that is supposed to help. You want to look for Ceylon cinnamon or what some call the "true" cinnamon.

Be careful also if you are prone to ulcers. Too much cinnamon can aggravate or cause ulcers, so keep an eye on the tummy.

Most studies show that it helps maintain good blood sugar, it doesn't really reduce it. But by all means, eat cinnamon when you can. It's yummy

Would you be so kind, butter as to post this recipe in the recipes section of this site?

I am sure many people would like to enjoy this. It could also be searchable in that section.

The link to recipes section is in the dk blue band above

Be careful with cinnamon most common supplement cinnamon is cassia and In large doses or extended use can cause liver damage there are many articles on it small doses are somewhat ok just google cinnamon damages liver and the articles will come up the best discription I found on it is on Mother Nature network. Com I used to use cinnamon supplements but got gravely ill I have recovered but will not do that again some on my toast is about it once and awhile talk to your doctor and remember supplements don't need approval to be sold and most are a rip off mostly caffeine and sugar anyways

I have tried cinnamon in the past, anywhere from the grocery store cinnamon to the so called "true cinnamon" from Ceylon, to the cinnamon and chromium suppliment I bought at Walmart. Nothing seemed to affect me whatsoever. But as we all may have differing responses to the same substance, it could well work for you. It might be worth a try and you'd not be out much money for trying.
