I use cinnamon and honey as a medicinal agent.

Use Cinnamon on many things, and do, at times use it with Honey. Not a big fan of supplements aside from Vitamin D. Have a shaker of half lite brown sugar and half cinnamon for toast or; oatmeal, grits, or cream of wheat in the morning as well.

I use the cinnamon oil every day in my tea. It's pretty strong.

I been adding cinnamon to my morning coffee along with coconut oil. Two days ago I was at a health food store and went to their spices display. and bought Ceylon Cinnamon. Smells like the cinnamon oil I used to use to make cinnamon toothpicks as a high schooler

I have been following Stephanie Person Skater on Faceebook and she's Stephanie fitskater on youtube. She suggest using Ceylon Cinnamon. Just can't remember how much to use daily for your metabolism.

I don't believe in taking a lot of supplements either.

I don't use cinnamon supplements, but do use cinnamon quite a bit when I can. I used to use it more when I ate oatmeal, cinnamon toast, etc., but since I don't do that~~~ However, I do put some in my protein shakes sometimes. Love the Mexican chocolate flavor (chocolate with cinnamon) and also will use it on cottage cheese quite often too.

The less pills/supplements I can take, the better and I'm working hard at getting enough minerals, etc. from an assortment of foods (fruits & veggies) altho I do take a multi vitamin.

Cinnamon capsule contained in my Diabetes support pack. I can swallow it whole, or pull the capsule apart and spread it on whatever.

I'm not a fan of supplements either. Taking too many can be dangerous as i would well know.

I don't do supplements but do use cinnamon in so many things: coffee, smoothies, oatmeal, etc.

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

I am currently taking a diabetic support pack. A cinnamon/Chromium Picolinate capsule is in the packet. It states; Cinnamon promotes healthy glucose and sugar metabolism, and these beneficial effects can in turn support heart and circulatory health. Cinnamon originates from bark and is 1000mg. I don't know if I can state its fantastic, but it is one of things I do to successfully manage my Diabetes.

Wondering what your program is, if so, and if you feel like it's doing any good.

Slow and steady wins the race.
