Re: Cinnamon

It may help.
There was a small study done in 2003 that showed some benefits in both LDL and triglycerides and blood glucose in people with Diabetes-2.
A larger study in 2006 showed the same effect on blood glucose, but none on cholesterol.

Probably diabetics would find it more useful than those with normal glucose tolerance..

If you take it, go for about a tsp. a day.
