The amount of glucose, or sugar, in the blood is called your
blood sugar level. Since your cells use glucose for energy, it
is important that these levels stay within normal limits for
cells to function properly. Normally, blood sugar levels stay
within normal limits throughout the day, being highest after
meals and lowest in the morning. However, under certain
conditions, the body is no longer able to control the level of
glucose in the blood, which over time, can lead to cell damage.

Type I diabetes occurs when the pancreas stops producing
insulin. The cause is unknown but some believe it is due to a
virus. People with type I must take insulin for life. Type 2
diabetes develops when the pancreas produces enough insulin,
but the cells resist it. This is called insulin resistance.
Obesity increases the risk of type 2.

Anderson and his team found that all cinnamon takers
experienced a drop in blood levels of glucose, fats and
cholesterol by up to 30 percent. No change was seen in the
people taking placebo. As an added bonus, cinnamon contains
virtually no calories, Anderson said, allowing diabetics to add
zest to their meals without adding to their waistlines.
Previous research has shown that cinnamon appears to help fat
cells recognize and respond to insulin. In recent studies, the
spice increased glucose metabolism by about 20 times.
