Cinnamon And Diabetes

Cinnamon is a sweet but pungent spice that is derived from the inner bark of the branches of wild

cinnamon trees, which grow in tropical areas across Southeast Asia, South America and the Caribbean.

Cinnamon is a blend of nutrients commonly used a spice. It can help regulate glucose metabolism in

diabetic people, but may also possess some toxic components.


Cinnamon is frequently treated as an anti-diabetic compound, since it reduces the rate at which glucose

enters the body. Not only does it help diabetics avoid blood sugar spikes, but it also improves glucose

use in the cell itself.

People with diabetes often face dietary restrictions to control their blood sugar and prevent


Over time, cinnamon can reduce fasting blood glucose, and potentially cholesterol levels as well.

Cinnamon does not need to be purchased specifically as a supplement, and can be found in grocery

stores. It does contain a liver toxin called coumarin, which can be harmful in high doses. Making

cinnamon tea can reduce the risk of coumarin poisoning, since the toxin is left behind in the leftover

sediment. Ceylon cinnamon, which is derived from a different plant species, has lower levels of

coumarin, which makes it a better supplement option.

The standard dose for anti-diabetic purposes is 2-4grams of cinnamon daily, taken with carbohydrate

containing meals.
