Recent Studies on Cinnamon :

More modern, scientific studies have also shown the health benefits of cinnamon. One of the first studies on humans observed sixty people with type 2 diabetes for forty days. Each of the participants in the study took one, three, or six grams of cinnamon per day. This was given to them in pill form, although it is equivalent to one quarter to one teaspoon of cinnamon. The results, published in Diabetes Care (a medical journal), demonstrate that all three amounts had a beneficial effect on the blood sugar as well as cholesterol levels of the patients.

  • Total cholesterol was reduced by 12 to 26 percent
  • LDL cholesterol was reduced by 7 to 27 percent
  • Triglycerides were reduced by 23 to 30 percent
  • Fasting blood glucose was reduced by 18 to 29 percent

These studies, and others done since suggest that cinnamon has a regulatory effect on blood sugar.
