I have been doing some reading around the site, and keep hearing about cinnamon and Vinegar to lower sugar levels. I can't really find where the discussion starts though, not sure if you eatr/drink it or take a pill..and is it safe? Do I need to talk to my dr. before I try something like that? How do you try it? Is there a certain amount of either? Just curious as to what that is all about.

You can get cinnamon in pill form also, I take 2 a day. I also keep a mixture of cinnamon and splenda in a salt shaker and use it on apples, puddings and other things, very tasty too.

What a good idea to keep splenda and cinnamon together! I can think of alot of things I could sprinkle that on. And it really helps?

I use cinnamon on oatmeal, toast, (yes 1 peice with breakfast) etc but also take the pill form 2 x a day, I tried drinking the apple cider vinegar in water but couldn't stand the taste, so I got the pill form and take those twice a day.

When I drank the glass of vinegar & water I saw a 15 point drop in glucose so I thought this is something that apparently works for me.

Two final bits of advice from Dr. Anderson: First, eating great quantities of cinnamon straight from the can is not a good idea. Table cinnamon is not water soluble, meaning it can build up in the body with unknown consequences. Second, the powered cinnamon has another limitation. Dr. Anderson's personal 60-point decline in total cholesterol occurred only after he switched from sprinkling cinnamon on his breakfast cereal to taking it in a capsule. Saliva contains a chemical harmful to cinnamon.
