Last night I was asked about cinnamon and its effect with diabetes.
It is a lovely flavour and superb with porridge, stewed apples and also milk puddings. I have seen information about it being helpful in diabetes as there is some work to suggest it does help.
This is what I found on the Diabetes UK website.
"The theory that cinnamon can be beneficial in treating or preventing diabetes has been around for a while, and there has been some evidence to suggest that it is true in mice. Recent research has suggested that cinnamon may improve blood glucose levels and blood fats in people with Type 2 diabetes. The research is interesting but Diabetes UK is not recommending that people start taking large amounts."
