    To lower blood sugar, take cinnamon in the capsule form. Its available at your drug store and is fairly inexpensive especially when you purchase it as buy one get one free. my doctor has my diabetic husband taking two a day and I use it when doing a lot of baking to keep me from craving the baked goods.

    I thought it strange that my doctor NEVER mentioned taking cinnamon in the capsule form. My co-worker said I should try it. My blood sugar has been high lately again. Have been reviewing my Food Tracker....but I did notice I am not drinking as much water as I did over the summer months! Can this be the source? I have been exercising, eating a more healthy diet, not trying to take in any extra sugar in my food or sweets. I am on diabetes pills and insulin shots. So, if there is anything you could add that would help me figure out the higher than normal blood sugar readings, I would really appreciate it!

    I heard cinnamon can help lower blood sugar. I just didn't know how to implement it, what great ideas!
