Christalyn----I've read that the smell alone of cinnamon, particularly cinnamon/apple (like apple pie) is on that list of aromas that promote a sense of well-being, like Lavender. So I think you may be onto something!....I know fenugreek has helped me and Omega 3s sound like a good idea for all of us. Though David Mendosa did a recent post about the need to also reduce our intake of Omega 6s so we can get the balance right......
I'm afraid I'm very uncreative with it. I put 4 TBSPs in a little under a cup of water, add 4-6 drops of Stevia and chug it down. But I have read of many others like Lizmari who use it in salads and the like. Yes, I put cinnamon on my blueberries everyday. Oh, I do get Bragg's raw apple cider vinegar. Available in most grocery stores, I think.
I'm a prediabetic and have been trying cinnamon for a couple of months now. I don't notice much, if any, difference in my glucose levels. But I do enjoy the cinnamon burps. I take the capsules with my fish oil pills, and the resulting burps are definitely more pleasant than the fishy burps. So that gives me an incentive to finish the giant bottle of pills.
I tried Cinnamon for a while but she just kept licking my face!! (See my picture ... that's Cinnamon!) But it did lower my blood presaure because I found out that I was loved even though I had to consume something to attract it!
I tried the capsules but was told that it is actually the cinnamon liquid that works best. In the end, I just stopped because it was gettng a bit costly for me.
I tried Cinnamon too, and didn't really like the results. In my case, i noticed smaller spikes, but it took me longer to get back to fasting level. for example, normally my fasting is around 80 so after a meal, i would go up to say 120 at 1 hr, 100 at 2 hr and back to 80-85 at hour 3. using cinnamon, my bg would only go up to 110, but would remain at 110 for up to 3 hours. i experimented with a few different foods and while the overall numbers were different, the result for me was the same. That said i have heard of cinnamon working for other folks so since there is little to no risk with it, its always worth trying to see how it works for you.
