Not only did the cinnamon reduce their blood sugar levels and increase their natural production of insulin, it lowered their blood cholesterol as well.

Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day significantly reduces blood sugar levels in diabetics, a new study has found. The effect, which can be produced even by soaking a cinnamon stick your tea, could also benefit millions of non-diabetics who have blood sugar problem but are unaware of it.

Might want to think twice next time ewe throw the cinnamon away. :)

Blood sugar concentration, or glucose level, refers to the amount of glucose present in a mammal's blood.....

Normal blood glucose levels are about 90mg/100ml, equivalent to 5mM (mmol/l). The total amount of glucose normally in circulating human blood is therefore about 3.3 to 7g (assuming an ordinary adult blood volume of 5 litres, plausible for an average adult male).
