There was a discussion a few days ago about the benefits of cinnamon and honey - can't find it now and couldn't comment at the time because my computer (or something) wouldn't let me.
What I wanted to say at the time was that, while a number of folks said they wanted to try cinnamon and honey, from what I've read, you need to be careful about that. Over-the-counter cinnamon often contains a chemical called courmarin (sp?) which, in large doses, can cause liver problems. While one study showed positive effects on blood sugar thanks to cinnamon, those results haven't been replicated. In other words, the jury's still out.
The articles I read suggested that, if you'd like to try cinnamon on a regular basis, you should buy cinnamon pills that are water-soluble or labelled water extract. That process removes the courmarin.
I've decided to conduct my own little study - on myself - and try the cinnamon pills. I'll keep ya'll posted.
