Does anyone know if the stories about cinnamon and diabetes are true? Apparently half a tea spoon is really good for you?

It has never worked for my son & he's been a T1D for 6yrs now. We think it's something that got started. If it works for you then great. Good luck.

The study that got everyone sold on cinnamon was very very flawed. That being said, it doesn't hurt and if I put it on some bland foods I don't crave putting sugar or honey on them.

Coconut oil is a big help for me with the cinnamon

I'm T2 did not work for me. I would also put a cinnamon stick in my tea.
