The results of this study demonstrate that intake of 1, 3, or 6 g of cinnamon per day reduces serum glucose, triglyceride, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol in people with type 2 diabetes and suggest that the inclusion of cinnamon in the diet of people with type 2 diabetes will reduce risk factors associated with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Bonus: Cinnamon tastes good in coffee.

    David,

    If you add stevia (PureVia or Truvia), you get your own cinnamon sugar! Fantastic for ‘ccino sprinkles.

    And, while you are researching, look up banaba.
