    I take a Cinnamon Pill every day on a tip from my sister. I had a Dr's appointment yesterday and got good news about my blood sugar levels. The Cinnamon pill really works! I was pleasantly surprised.

    You have to be very careful when taking cinnamon. You shouldn't take straight cinnamon in large doses or long-term or it can destroy your liver. If you want to take it daily for blood sugar control, it's better to use the water extracty of cinnamon, Cinnulin pf, which (by the water method) has had the dangerous components taken out. I have been using it for years with good results and no problems.
