What are cinnamon supplements good for?

What are cinnamon supplements good for?

Supplements: Cinnamon is not used in any medical setting. Any practice using this spice is outside of the normal medical community. All foods taken orally are broken down in the stomach. They are not absorbed into your blood stream as the specific product you consumed. This food is not dangerous, but I would doubt any claims of health benefits. ...Read more

I currently take a supplement containing 160mg of cinnamon daily, but I don't know if it's Ceylon or Cassia. Is this a dangerous amount of coumarin for daily use?

I currently take a supplement containing 160mg of cinnamon daily, but I don't know if it's Ceylon or Cassia. Is this a dangerous amount of coumarin for daily use?

It isn't: Different fundamentally from the cinnamon used in cooking. I can assure you 160 mg of the whole spice is teeny weeny compared to many of my stir frys.
My baking book says a teaspoon is 20 times (2300 mg) more than that; and I use many teaspoons.
furthermore, I know the cost of good cinnamon and I suspect they put 'supplement' on the bottle and jack the price 10x ...Read more

Will cinnamon supplements help or harm a person who is not diabetic but has hypoglysemia?

Neither helpful: ...or harmful. There's evidence of it's anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties and POSSIBLY improvement of diabetes in lab studies. However, so far, it's medicinal value is still theoretical and the dose required to produce an effect is unknown. If inhaled, it can irritate your throat and airway. I love cinnamon flavor, but can't recommend it as a medicine. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne. ...Read more

Do cinnamon supplements help reduce blood sugar levels and are they safe?

Do cinnamon supplements help reduce blood sugar levels and are they safe?

Partially: Cinnamon has a stabilizing affect on blood sugar. However, be very careful how much you use. Cinnamon has coumarin which has similar properties to Coumadin (warfarin) (the blood thinner). While coumarin is not as potent as coumadin, (warfarin) it still has liver affects and some blood thinning properties. Just don't put cinnamon on everything and think there won't be anything harmful. ...Read more

My 13y/o daughter has t1dm how good will it help her if I also give her natural supplements that include cinnamon, biotin, and chronium?

May help a bit...: It is easier to improve type 2 than type 1 diabetes with supplements but there is some evidence that biotin can improve sugar levels ; chromium can improve Insulin sensitivity in t1dm. Cinnamon may not help type 1. See http://lpi. Oregonstate. Edu/infocenter/vitamins/biotin/

Is it safe to take ginseng, vit d, k, calcium + capsicum supplements and cinnamon, dandelion, green, rosehip, chamomile and peppermint teas together?

Who knows?: Why would anyone have ever scientifically studied such a combination? Do so, as with all otc supplements, at your own risk. The only one that has been scientifically studied and has actual medical benefits without significant risks is the vitamin d. Calcium can't hurt. The rest are a waste of money and possibly health. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or internet scams. ...Read more

Will cinnamon supllements harm my baby in the first trimester?

Will cinnamon supllements harm my baby in the first trimester?

Not a good idea: Supplements are generally a bad idea in pregnancy. They are not regulated by the FDA so it's never clear that you are actually getting what you are paying for. In addition to that, most supplements have not been studied on pregnant woman. Please don't take any supplements other than a pre-natal vitamin without talking to your doctor first and I suggest avoiding them altogether during pregnancy. ...Read more

I've read that 1tblsp honey and 1tblsp cinnamon w/cup of hot water has many health benefits. Is this true?

It depends: I doubt you'll find scientific evidence as to the health benefits. That doesn't mean it is hype. A lack of evidence doesn't exclude the possibility of significant benefit. I find it best to have supplements tailored to the individual. In the U.S. naturopaths are often the best bet. If you have access to a good herbalist & I have a bias toward Chinese Medicine.
