I felt that if I told people, then they would think it was my fault.... 
that if I had worked out harder or eaten better, I might have prevented it.
It is not fair to judge which diabetes condition is more serious, all types of diabetes have a serious impact on people’s health, it is a difficult condition which takes a lot of time, persistence and care to manage.

Benefits of Cinnamon

I have been drinking Cinnamon tea for a couple of years now and use it where ever possible in and on food. I believe it has had a significant effect on my bgl.

Studies have shown that just 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower LDL cholesterol.

Several studies suggest that cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes.

In some studies, cinnamon has shown an amazing ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections.

In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon reduced the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.

It has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.

In a study at Copenhagen University, patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week and could walk without pain within one month.

When added to food, it inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.

One study found that smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.

Researchers at Kansas State University found that cinnamon fights the E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices.

It is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.

  1. I love cinnamon and actually didn't know any of that!
    Well now I am going to have an extra slice of the cinnamon and fruit bread I just had for breakfast!!

  2. If you like cinnamon try skinless chicken breasts coated in cinnamon and popped in the oven... divine comes out with a crispy skin.

  3. That's amazing. I use it from time to time, mainly as an addition to curries, often in a garam masala. I do remember cinnamon toast being popular when I worked at sandwich bars in Sydney - which natch, was mixed with sugar!!

  4. yuk, sorry, but cinnamon, if I could spell it, right, is the work of the devil with me. Possibly I should absorb it, but really, really hate the taste of it.

    i tried a cinnamon cappcuchino once and it really made me feel ill, never put it in anything I cook, cos I just hate the taste.
