Taking a spoonful of cinnamon directly can be done, although I found
it easier to mix it into something else I was eating or drinking, such
as apple juice or on a cereal. Shortly after the reports started
circulating about cinnamon helping in Type 2 diabetics, they started
producing cinnamon in capsules, which are much easier to take.
Although I'm a type 1 diabetic, I tried cinnamon a while just to see
if it would help. I don't know if it is possible to get type 2
diabetes if you already have type 1, or not, but I figured a bit of
cinnamon probably couldn't hurt.
I had the same question as Bear did about whether the medical tests
were referring to true cinnamon or cassia or both. Thanks for the
