Ive read that studies have shown that cinnamon, taken in the proper dosages, along with supportive nutrients which help the cinnamon do a better job, can help people with Type 2 diabetes who are trying to control blood sugars through diet and exercise.
I’ve read up a little on cinammon for helping control blood sugar and it does have some merit in that regard.
However, always important to note that anyone taking medications for type 2 diabetes, on insulin, or under a doctors care for the condition, should always check with their doctor before adding cinnamon.
Also, some people are allergic to cinnamon. Common allergic reactions can actually be life-threatening because they include the throat swelling and closing up or tongue swelling. On the skin, in allergic individuals, cinnamon can cause contact dermatitis.
Here lately, I’ve come across another potential side effect to cinamon, when I linked it to my own heart palpitations. If you are taking a product containing cinamon and begin to notice heart palpitations or irregular heartbeat shortly after, the cinamon could be a link. https://healthychoices.askahealer.com/2010/01/12/heart-palpitations-at-night/
