Carlson Ceylon Cinnamon
Carlson Labs Ceylon Cinnamon contains 500 mg. Cinnamomum verum bark per serving. Carlson Labs Ceylon Cinnamon helps maintain normal blood glucose levels that are already within a normal range. Carlson Labs Ceylon Cinnamon is also known as "true cinnamon."
Test tube studies have suggested that cinnamon may improve glucose utilization. In a study of people with type 2 diabetes, supplementing with cinnamon in the amount of 1, 3, or 6 grams per day for 40 days was significantly more effective than a placebo at reducing blood glucose levels. The reduction averaged 18 to 29% in the three treatments groups, and 1 gram per day was as effective as 3 and 6 grams per day. The benefits of cinnamon for lowering blood sugar levels was confirmed in a double-blind study. However, in two other double-blind studies, cinnamon was not more effective than a placebo. The different results in these studies may have been due in part to differences in body weight, initial blood sugar levels, and medication use among the different populations studied.
