Does Cinnamon Lowers Blood Sugar and Fights Diabetes?

Cinnamon is an aromatic spice derived from the bark of several species of Cinnamomum trees.

While you may associate cinnamon with rolls or breakfast cereals, it has actually been used for thousands of years in traditional medicine and food preservation.

To obtain cinnamon, the inner bark of Cinnamomum trees must be removed.

The bark then undergoes a drying process that causes it to curl up and yield cinnamon sticks, or quills, which can be further processed into powdered cinnamon.

Several different varieties of cinnamon are sold in the US, and they are typically categorized by two different types:

Ceylon: Also called "true cinnamon," it's the most expensive type.

Cassia: Less expensive and found in most food products containing cinnamon.


It’s fine to sprinkle cinnamon on your oatmeal or use it in baking. Go ahead and enjoy it if you like its taste. But if you hope that it will help you manage your diabetes, you might want to pause before you head to your spice rack.


Eating 1 to 6 grams of cinnamon for 40 days. (One gram of ground cinnamon is about half a teaspoon.) The researchers found that cinnamon cut cholesterol by about 18% and blood sugar levels by 24%. But in other studies, the spice did not lower blood sugar or cholesterol levels.
