Health Tip: Cinnamon for Diabetics

It may lower blood glucose

(HealthDayNews) -- If you have type 2 diabetes, you may want to sprinkle cinnamon on your cappuccino.

According to the Johns Hopkins University newsletter Health After 50, a recent study found that when people with diabetes consumed between 1 and 3 grams of cinnamon daily, their blood glucose, triglyceride, low-density lipoprotein, and total cholesterol levels dropped significantly.

Cinnamon extracts appear to enhance the efficiency of insulin and to help fat cells recognize and respond to the hormone.
