Cholesterol's Kryptonite?

Cinnamon may improve glucose, blood pressure, and lipids in Friends with Type 2 Diabetes

Cinnamon ranks No. 1 out of 26 of the most popular herbs and spices in the world in terms of its protective antioxidant levels. Other health benefits include antibacterial, antifungal and anti-diabetic properties. In fact. studies have shown that Cinnamon could be considered as an additional dietary supplement option to regulate blood glucose, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels along with conventional medications to treat Type 2 diabetes mellitus.

One study, for example, showed that whether an individual was given 1, 3, or 6 grams of cinnamon per day, all three levels reduced the mean fasting serum glucose (18-29%), triglyceride (23-30%), LDL cholesterol (7-27%), and total cholesterol (12-26%) levels.

Are there different types of cinnamon? Yes! Both Ceylon and Cassia are healthy and delicious. However, in large quantities or in a supplement, Cassia can be harmful because of the coumarin content. Ceylon cinnamon is better quality and much safer.

Since cinnamon does build up in the body and can be toxic at high levels, ask your healthcare provider about how researchers have dosed cinnamon in clinical trials such as 30 days on, two weeks off. Always check with your healthcare provider before adding a new supplement, such as cinnamon, to your daily regimen.
