Cinnamon controls blood sugar?

Cinnamon is best known as a spice, sprinkled on toast and lattes. You can sprinkle it freely on your oatmeal or baking. But when it comes to manage your diabetes, you might stop firstly.

Research findings are mixed here. It’s not yet clear if cinnamon is good for diabetes. In one study, volunteers ate from 1 to 6 grams of cinnamon for 40 days. The researchers found that cinnamon cut cholesterol by about 18% and blood sugar levels by 24%. But in other studies, the spice did not lower blood sugar or cholesterol levels.

Especially for those with liver problems, be careful, because large amounts of cinnamon may make your livers worse.
