    I add cinnamon to my coffee by putting it in the basket with the grounds. I haven't really checked to see if it is helping anything, but it isn't hurting. My A1c is always good and I have never taken any diabetes medications. I also try to get at least 10 minutes of cardio every day and eat a high fiber diet.

    Keep in mind that cinnamon, when taken in large doses or long-term, can destroy your liver. I take Cinnulin pf, a water-based extract of cinnamon that is safe for long-term use and lowers my blood sugar.
