I know cinnamon has been discussed often in diabetes discussion groups,
was wondering what the quantity is suggested to make any sort of
difference? Is it an amount that a person could consume without going
overboard? I happen to use cinnamon a lot, always have, but even in the
amounts I have, I'm not sure it's enough to make a difference diabetes-
it lowers my HbA1c and LDL

Dietary strategies for improving post-prandial glucose, lipids,
inflammation, and cardiovascular health.
The highly processed, calorie-dense, nutrient-depleted diet favored in the
current American culture frequently leads to exaggerated supraphysiological
post-prandial spikes in blood glucose and lipids.
Additionally, lean protein, vinegar, fish oil, tea, cinnamon, calorie
restriction, weight loss, exercise, and low-dose to moderate-dose alcohol
each positively impact post-prandial dysmetabolism.
Experimental and epidemiological studies indicate that eating patterns, such
as the traditional Mediterranean or Okinawan diets, that incorporate these
types of foods and beverages reduce inflammation and cardiovascular risk.
This anti-inflammatory diet should be considered for the primary and
secondary prevention of coronary artery disease and diabetes.
