A dietitian/nutritionist recommended it for my husband's diabetes & it has worked wonders. His morning blood sugar was often 200+ & now is about 110. His blood sugar medicine is down to 2mg instead of 6mg. He takes 1000 mg of cinnamon each morning & we got it at Krogers-buy one get one free for less than $8.00.

Hi, Please reconsider your classification of cinnamon from "Possibly Ineffective for:Diabetes". I have had type II diabetes for more than 20 years and cinnamon has been the most effective help available.
