Does anyone know if daily cinnamon works on lowering blood sugar levels and if so how much should one take?

From what I understand this method is for Type 2 Diabetes (not sure what type you have). The method calls for adding 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to your daily diet. You can do this through drinking it in a tea or sprinkling it on salads or into some other food you eat. It's a fairly small amount, it shouldn't alter the taste too much.

Also, there are studies coming out now that suggest vinegar help with blood sugar (apparently Japanese researchers have found that vinegar can counter act the effect of white rice on blood sugar).

ptddsdo and angel star,

Welcome to HealingWell. Just wanted to give you a little hint about past posts. If you scroll up to the top of the page there is a 'Google Custom Search' box under the yellow bar. If you type in 'cinnamon' there it will bring up recent posts about it on the site. Hope this helps.
