One of the most exciting recent discoveries in health is cinnamon and its effects on blood sugar levels. The positive effects of cinnamon on blood sugar were discovered by accident at a USDA testing center in Maryland. Scientists were testing the effects of various foods on blood sugar (glucose) levels and were surprised when good ol’ apple pie actually helped lower glucose levels.
Based on this discovery, they tested the effect of cinnamon on 60 type 2 diabetics. By the end of the short study, cinnamon had reduced blood sugar levels up to 29 percent, increased insulin production, and lowered cholesterol. In a 2007 study, 83 percent of participants saw a significant decrease in fasting blood sugar levels (down almost 8 percent). More studies are needed before a concrete health benefit can be established.Benefiting from this discovery may not be as simple as putting cinnamon on your cereal. Cinnamon contains volatile oils and, when taken consistently or in high doses, may be toxic.
