Transcript of the Audio Above:

Bannister Wolfe: Hi Bannister here, let’s continue to Think Healthy. Today, we’re talking about cinnamon & diabetes.

This is all you need to know: STOP USING Cinnamon as a substitute for proper medicines when you’re trying to control for diabetes.

There’s a lot of research out there showing that Cinnamon does not cause dramatic reductions in your A1C.

Doctor Puja: “I want you to understand that Cinnamon does not reduce blood sugars. The research that was used to say Cinnamon is good: that’s all wrong. In fact, the amount of risk that you’re putting to your liver far outweighs any good that may come from cinnamon.

Bannister Wolfe: So what works?

Doctor Puja: Exercise works. A good diet works. Taking your medicine on time works. But wait, there’s good news. “You don’t have to lose a lot of weight just losing around 10 pounds does wonderful things to your body and blood sugars.”

Bannister Wolfe: There you have it: lose 10 pounds & leave that cinnamon for your bun!
