  • Bruce I wouldn't not suggest this as a 'remedy' for diabetes but my wife is a type 2 diabetic and we have a real nightmare on our hands with absolutely wild swings in sugar levels. We heard that taking cinnamon was very helpful in stabilizing sugar levels (mind you, not eliminate the symptoms). We bought some capsules of cinnamon at first and were amazed how in a matter of days the wild swings had moderated considerably.

    We made an investment in a popular device to make smoothies from superfoods and in the process of integrating the smoothies into our diet we bumped her intake of cinnamon considerably.

    Where she was having swings in sugar levels that were as high as 200 on the extremes and commonly 150 point swings, she now varies about 50 with fairly high consistency.

    So our take on cinnamon is that it's not a remedy, but it can help what you take for your condition be more effective. I do not know the science of it, just know what our experience was.
    • Thanks for sharing Kip! Here's an article on cinnamon from WebMD as well. One thing thing the article points out that you may need to be aware of . . . "because cinnamon may lower blood sugar levels, exercise caution when combining it with other supplements that lower sugar levels" Click here to see the supplements list and to read more: http://www.webmd.com/diabetes/cinnamon-and-benefits-for-diabetes
