Regards Chris David's Response: I have never heard of anyone using cinnamon stick to reduce blood glucose. As I wrote in my main article about cinnamon at http://www.mendosa.com/cinnamon.htm the researchers "found that less than one-teaspoon—one gram—of cinnamon worked as well as higher doses."

    What do you think about cinnamon to bring down blood sugar? Does it matter what kind of cinnamon? David’s Response A little cinnamon on your cereal and other foods is both tasty and healthy, Larry. Every report that I have seen indicates that it will reduce your blood glucose level. Please see my article about cinnamon (http://www.mendosa.com/newsletter_april.htm)....

Please see my article about cinnamon (http://www.mendosa.com/newsletter_april.htm). There are cinnamons from China, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia and perhaps other countries, and according to the research it doesn’t matter which one you use. Right now, in fact, I am testing the flavor of cinnamons from those four counties. I bought them from my favorite spice company, Penzeys Spices (http://www.penzeys.com/cgi-bin/penzeys/shophome.html). They all taste great to me!

    This information is very valuable to me. Thank you for writing this information. David’s response I am glad to hear that, Chana. By the way with a wonderful name like that, I wonder if you are familiar with the bean that has the lowest glycemic index, chana dal. If not, please read my chana dal article (http://www.mendosa.com/chanadal.html).
