The benefits of cinnamon is that it reduces your blood sugar levels and stablizes them (so you are not spiking and crashing). You want pure cinnamon caplets. Start with 500 mg 1x a day then work up to 500 mg 2x a day. Since it is pure cinnamon, I know of no drug interactions but do not advise taking cinnamon supplements if you: 1) are on any type of diabetic meds, 2) are prone to acid reflux, heart burn or indigestion or 3) if you have diverticulosis, crohns, or severe digestive issues. Hope this helps.
I've been reading through the threads and I've seen that a lot of you take Cinnamon supplements. Can you tell me how much you take (do you titrate up or just stay at one dose?) and what the benefits are supposed to be? Are there any drug interactions to be concerned about?
