I don't take the supplements but I do add cinn to my foods when it is appropriate.'

Just from a lot of working out and good nutrition and keeping my carbs low...my A1c went fr 8.0 to 5.3 in the last 3 months.

I have never taken cinnamon supplements but I do sprinkle ground cinnamon on my gluten-free oatmeal in the morning at breakfast. Sometimes when I eat applesauce I sprinkle cinnamon on that also. I really do not know anything about cinnamon supplements.

I do know that ground cinnamon helps lower my blood sugar or at least it seems to.

I use cinnammon supplements when I do not use cinnamon in my food. I also noticed that when I do not use the supplements my BS does go up about ten points. I have used the supplement since a month after becoming a diabetic in 2010. My Dr is a supporter of it. I take 1,000mg three times a day with my meals unless my food has cinnamon in it. It seems to work for me, Love and Light Carol

I started to take Cinnamon capsule every night with my nighttime meds. Did it for about 18 months. Didn't really notice any great improvement...but my Blood Glucose is in tight control. I stopped taking them, and noticed that my morning FBG seemed to be a few points higher. So I started taking cinnamon again after about 8 months. And my averages of just my FBG, are running low 90's...compared with the 8 months without the cinnamon, of FBG averages in the high 90's.
So I think, for me they work. Not a huge difference...but a wee bit better on the cinnamon.

Doesn't hurt to give them a try. But don't expect a vast difference.

Good Luck!

I've taken them in the past and don't know if they helped. What works for me is exercise. I would much rather take cinnamon supplements than exercise but I'm not confident that would work for me.

I've tried them, but I can't say how well they work. I have read from people who have used them and had them work well and others who said they didn't work at all. I think it is a YMMV thing. Of course, most of diabetes is.

What kind/dose are you two taking? I use lots of cinnamon in foods but am always curious about improvements.

I've been taking cinnamon supplements because I heard it helps to lower your bs.

Has anyone tried this and did you see any results?
