The Dr at the VA told my dad to try it for relieving his arthritis pain. He says it seems to help.

Thank you for bringing this up. I have read in the past it is good for regulating blood sugar, especially if you are drastically cutting back on sugar.
Here is another link that discusses cinnamon in regards to, Inflammation and bacteria, Blood sugar control and brain and gut health,

I checked that out as well. There's only one problem.

They haven't done any tests on humans. They've done in vitro (petri dish, test tube etc) and in vivo (inside living beings) on animals, but they haven't actually conducted tests on humans.

Now, I'm not saying this is bunk, but there's not enough information to go on more than a might/maybe/may premise.

I'd also like to add, there are some pretty bad side effects in taking too much cinnamon that include liver failure as being the worst and diarrhea, vomiting, dizziness and drowsiness (pretty standard side effects).

a reply to: TerryDon79 I do see what you are saying. One has to be careful with anything you put into your body concerning herbal/prescription/non-prescription medicines because of possible side effects and contradictions with other medicine one is taking.
When looking into taking herbal medicine a person should definitely consult with a professional in the field of Eastern Medicine.
I believe cinnamon is an Ayervedic medicine. Ayerveda dates back thousands of years and you gotta figure the folks that study it today would take modern medicine into account as well, especially if one takes other medicines prescribed or recommended by a Western Doctor... if they don't take theses things into account then they are probably no good and it should be looked into to find an Eastern Medicine practitioner that does take today's western medicine into account.
A little bit about Ayerveda,

I completely agree.

Here in the UK you can ask your GP about alternative medicine and if they don't know they will likely refer you to someone who does. I know this first hand because of my wife having cancer.

I'd also recommend doing your own research on any treatments, be it prescription, over the counter or alternative. You can also speak to your GP or specialist after you've done your research and see what their opinion is and see if there are any real benefits to the treatment or if it's just hype.

Back on topic lol.....cinnamon does look like a promising solution to a few things, but without human trials it's still a maybe.

a reply to: TerryDon79 Oh, I do hope your wife is doing better.
Yes, doing ones own research is definitely important.
Thank you for the replies. It's hard to get into it here in the states with ones doctor about alternative medicine, but it is possible... ( not always covered by insurance)... my personal experience.
I'm sure a little cinnamon in a bowl of oatmeal every other day can't hurt, but just outright starting to supplement with it without being absolutely sure it is right for you... is not advisable in my opinion. I have in the past taken it in capsule form... but I didn't see any difference or side effects as I wasn't having my blood sugar monitored and probably didn't need but a little here and there anyhow, like in my hot cereals!😊

Unfortunately shes terminal. It's also hereditary. Kind of sucks, but I knew about it before we were a couple so it's part of life.

We're one of the fortunate countries to have free health care. If it wasn't for the NHS we would have paid an absolute fortune for chemo, radiation, surgery (90% of large intestines removed and other minor operations), medicines, pain killers, literally thousands of doctors visits. And that's just my wife in the past 15 years.

But we're still looking for a solution. Clinical trials, alternate medicines, pretty much anything that we can verify without having some terrible side effect.

ETA: I would like to apologise to the op for taking this thread off topic. It was not my intention to do so.

I did a lot of research on cinnamon. It can be used to treat some conditions. It does have some medicinal properties. It is not for everyone though, some people already make too much insulin. It also metabolizes to benzoic acid and can neutralize high ammonia levels in the blood. It turns Ammonia to uric acid, unless you pee that out, it can cause gout.

Also some people can't eat much cinnamon, they can get a reaction to it which can cause asthma like symptoms. It is a medicine, some people are bound to have side effects from natural medicines.

So anyone who is going to try it should be aware of these side effects so they can monitor how it makes them feel. If I eat cinnamon every day, my hypoglycemia gets worse and it raises the chances of me getting the spins from low sugar. I have always had hypoglycemia and have learned to moderate things over the year, I am just learning how to understand this stuff lately, subconsciously knowing something does not mean you can explain it to others.

Some people get all red and hot from cinnamon too, I am not sure that is really bad though, my youngest granddaughter has that problem. The allergy would be the balsam of peru allergy or it could also be the celery allergy, they share some chemistry. My oldest granddaughter gets asthma attacks when she eats chicory root, that shares some chemistry but she does not react to cinnamon if she eats it in moderation. She is allergic to ragweed and chicory root allergy is the same allergy.

Some people can actually break down the benzoic acid to active benzene compounds if they produce too much of a certain enzyme, that can cause problems. A little cinnamon is tolerated by most people but too much is not good for some people. It can take a couple of months before problems show up when you start taking cinnamon supplements every day.

Cinnamon has been used as a medicine for a very long time, maybe up to a couple of thousand years in some places.

Moderation is the key as always, I would never tell somebody take a teaspoon a day, but a small amount sprinkled with honey on some toast in the morning for breakfast should not be a OD consumption.

I take honey and Cinnamon myself because I read Swedish doctor had results with it in terms of reducing Cholorstorol. I have read these claims listed below but I have always wondered .......

1. Cinnamon is High in a Substance With Powerful Medicinal Properties - what is that substance?
2. Cinnamon is Loaded With Antioxidants - hamy more than other things?
3. Cinnamon Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties - Whats the anti flamatory substance?
4. Cinnamon May Cut the Risk of Heart Disease - How does it do that?
5. Cinnamon Can Improve Sensitivity to The Hormone Insulin - How does it do that?
6. Cinnamon Lowers Blood Sugar Levels and Has a Powerful Anti-Diabetic Effect - How?
7. Cinnamon May Have Beneficial Effects on Neurodegenerative Diseases - May?
8. Cinnamon May Be Protective Against Cancer - How does it do that?
9. Cinnamon Helps Fight Bacterial and Fungal Infections - How does it do that?
10. Cinnamon May Help Fight The HIV Virus - How does it do that?

Manuka Honey comes from New Zealand.

For nicks and scratches, put a little dob of Manuka Honey on the band aid whatever before putting it on and it will clear it up in no time.

Because Manuka Honey is very good for medicinal purposes its a bit pricy.

I beilve it is more good than harm to your bodies. its a natural source so thats positive.

Lets say it is good for you, whats the point if the rest of your diet is not good (not you personally just in general). Eating cinnemon amongst cans of Coke, fatty foods, Oils, high sugar intake etc etc then you wont feel the benefit.

so yes be good for you providing rest of your diet is good, otherwise pointless.

Every food that grows naturally or even selectively has benefits to it. The strip of fat on my steak probably has more health 'benefits ' than cinnamon.
Not sure why people concentrate on certain foods more than others. Just stay away from processed food and you'll live 'healthy'.

I think i missed out on the fact that it helps with weight loss too. Friend of mine swears by cinnamon, had cinnamon tea for about almost 2 months 3x’s a day and she could see her belly slimming down.
This video should clear any doubts:
