Hi, All
I've been using cinnamon for a few weeks now and I do believe that it does have a positive influence on blood sugar readings — at least for me. I've been using it in my coffee. (After the coffee's been brewed, I add about 2 teaspoons of it to the pot and stir it well. Don't expect it to completely dissolve.) Plus, I find that it really makes the coffee taste wonderful.

How ironic!!! My wife and I just started to put cinnamon in our coffee (when brewing) over this past weekend and I just went and bought supplements at Walgreens while on BOGO special the other day. I'd heard mixed emotions on whether it works so I appreciate the testimony.

Hello there Emma!!! When I am on the cinnamon it does WONDERS for my diabetes. When I went off off it a couple of years ago for a while, EVRYTHING (weight and blood sugars) all went bye bye. I went from 166 (while being on it) to 206 again plus some (being off of it). I told my Nana about this, being she is type 2, she tried it and has being doing better. I ran across this by a man selling mixed spiced nuts at the county fair where I live. He showed me all the research and info on it and I knew than I had to try it. There is only one catch, it may not work for all people who try it. i am now taking 1,000mg per day of cinnamon with my morning and evening meals along with my other supplements. It is proven form me it is a wonderful supplement. I speak VERY HIGHLY of this when I talk to others. Have you tried buying it as a capsule? it is pretty cheap that way as well. it comes in 500mg capsules.
