Cinnamon for Diabetes

Back in 2000 I posted a study that cinnamon may help control blood sugar among diabetics, and now researchers say cinnamon may help diabetes by playing the role of an insulin substitute in type 2 diabetes. This is an incredibly inexpensive and, not to mention, great tasting tool for diabetics, and the likelihood of this food causing any long-term complications is very small. However, even though cinnamon is natural it is important to remember that it is not the "cure" for diabetes. The "cure" for most would be to avoid foods that increase insulin, namely grains and sugars. One hour of daily exercise is also essential to improve insulin sensitivity.
