I take cinnamon to help with blood sugar control.  I don't know if the effect is actual or placebo, but my count is a little lower when I take it.


I read in Toussaint-Samat that cinnamon is used in Africa (if I recall correctly) to control diarrhea in children.  One flu-stricken day (before I became diabetic) I gave it a try and choked down a teaspoon in a cup of hot water.  It worked beautifully.  


Capsules of cinnamon will work as well, although with the capsules I have a tendency to burp cinnamon dust, which makes my husband laugh and the cats look at me funny.
