  • Blah, blah, blah, and more blah blah. Big Pharma is paying him to dis the cinnamon regiment. People….disregard this video and do more research on cinnamon.

  • It’s no joke. I have type 2 and a lady at work gave me an herbal teabag with cinnamon and it totally decreased my sugar from 180 to 112 in about an hour and a half. I was stunned. Too bad about the toxic nature though, always something isn’t there? Maybe use it if you splurge and eat what you shouldn’t. I know, I know, you shouldn’t do that but life sucks without the occasional Chinese buffet outing.

  • I don’t have diabetes but It’s always some type of bad side effects when it comes to any type of medicine from a doctor. I’d rather keep my Herbs & supplements they work better I never have to worry about any side effects when it comes to herbs ��

  • You have spoken allots about cinnamon benefits in your U Tube video if you take the right dose. Could you please tell me what is the right dose and when and how often per can be taken in day to get the benefits of it!!! Thank You.

  • Hello Randy. I have Type 2 Diabetes. Use cinnamon as a supplement not as a replacement. I say this not as any type of expert. Just as someone who knows the damage diabetes can do if unchecked. I saw your video looking around for greenhouse ideas and gardening.

  • Dear Dr. I have been taking cinnamon with turmeric in my morning coffee. One spoon of each for last six months. A1c from 5.9 to 5.3. I am increasing the volume.

  • docs get pissy when you take their drugs away. Ive been taking cinnamon for years, not pre diabetic & i eat what i want. theres other alt things that help also… wakey wakey america!

  • I am type II… Cinnamon truly does help lower my blood sugar. I’m a true believer in it. Unfortunately I’m progress enough that I can’t seen to get off my metformin for long periods of time. I’m getting close though… Maybe with just a little more weight loss.

  • I think you didn’t explain what kind of cinnamon, cause there’s a lot of different kind. I heard that it has to have this ingredient ceylon cinnamon, that the best is it true???

  • I made a mistake and reached 320 the other night and had a teaspoon of Ceylon cinnamon powder in water before I went to bed and it dropped 165 percentage points by morning; with more cinnamon in my water in the day, it reached closer to 130-no other medicine.

  • My daughter is type 1 diabetic.. Wish there was something we could use for her.. Ironically, my husband’s name is also Randy.. But he’s not diabetic..

  • Hi Randy, You seem very young to be grappling with this already. My husband was borderline diabetic before we gave up grains and sugars. Now his blood sugar and blood pressure, lipid profile, cardiac function and stress test results are completely normal. He was congratulated by his doc and has never looked back. We are both 54. I rely heavily on Mark Sisson’s website and books as a guide.

  • Do you or someone you know suffer from Type 2 Diabetes?

    The Single Best Daily Habit To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes

  • Does anybody know the daily recommended intake for treating type 2 diabetes and its symptoms with Ceylon Cinnamon?

    How many grams per. day should i give my mother, in capsules, of Ceylon Cinnamon to help her manage and better deal with her Type 2 Diabetes?
    Does anybody know?
    What i am hearing all over the web, is that it varies between 1 gram 3 grams, and 6 grams those are the 3 typical dosaages…

    Now i need to determine what will be the most effective, and at what times should i have her take the capsules?

    I think i will start her on 3 grams daily, however, not sure if i should have her take the capsules before a meal, after a meal, or even on an empty stomach?

    Thank you in advance to anybody who reads this and provides me with some answers!:-)


  • hey hey! Have you tested the Curesal Rapid Diabetes Reversal program (GOOGLE it)? Ive heard some fun things about it and my companion got pleasing results in glucometer readings from it.

  • I started taking cinnamon, about a tea spoon TID, usually with a beverage and or food.

    Meds, if needed.

    Education is important too. I’ve gone to a few Diabetus education classes @ the hospital after being diagnosed with type 2. My readings were 33(594 american ) 3 months ago, now it’s 5-8(90-140) now. I’ve even gotten off the glyberide, and down to 500mg metformin TD. I recomend going to a dibetus class if it covered in the states.

  • I am here to express my profound warm gratitude to the Natural Herbal Medicine, which i got from Dr Ehizele has done for my life, 4months ago i was diagnosed with Herpes virus and ever since then i have been very unhappy, i was so down broken everyday, until one day when i came across a shocking testimony about how Dr Ehizele cured someone of his herpes and other virus, without wasting much time i contacted him immediately on his whatsApp number +2347089384319 and after i explain myself to him about how terrible i have been, and he assure me that he will help me to cure my Herpes virus,after he has prepared the herbal medicine he sent it to me and when i have received it and started using it i was totally cure within 2weeks and 5 days i am forever grateful to Dr Ehizele for helping me out with his herpes prescription that cured my virus. contact his email address: [email protected] or you can call or whatsApp his Mobile number:+2347089384319, you can follow him or message him on Instagram for more information He is also capable of curing other diseases like cancer HIV Herpes Diabetes save lives today by sharing….

  • I have been taking monatomic gold for two weeks. I take 2mg glimepiride and metformin. Without meds my bloodsugar can hit 2 to 300. I have a area on my thigh that numbs when sugar is high. At lunchtime today I had half a box of good and plenty, been a long time. I took my sugar test and no meds, my test was at 80. I am still laying off sugars and diet is strict. I will keep you posted on further outcome.

  • I’m right on the line, trying to stay on the not diabetic side. I’ve been insulin resistant for years. I have cinnamon tablets. Easier to take than powder. What I’m learning is that just as not all calories are the same, neither are sugars. There are many forms of it but fructose may be the worse one. High blood sugar levels from fructose will not be lowered by insulin. Our livers then produce triglycerides. Other unhealthy things happen. I’m still learning. Keep us posted on this.

  • I am Type 1 diabetic. I also wish this would work for me! Randy, green beans for some reason lower my sugar and I also read somewhere that Black licorice is suppose to help also. might be worth looking into.

  • I’ve tried those OTC cinnamon capsules… Can’t take them. Makes my chest hurt like no bodies business. Lol And I’ll belch the taste of cinnamon for days after one capsule.

  • Sri Lankan Cinnamon Tea with Green Tea.

    # Reduce high cholesterol
    # Reduce Obesity
    # Reduce Diabetes

  • My dad fills capsules with cinnamon and takes them three times a day. That, along with sprinkling it on his oatmeal and toast keeps his diabetes in total control. Good luck!

  • I have be dealing with herpes for the past 5 years until i got review online about Dr Ehizele people testifies how they got cured with his herbal medicine. And i order the treatment, after taking it for 7 days i totally got cured with Dr Ehizele herbal treatment. I’m recommending you diagnosis with herpes should get this treatment and be cured of it you can contact his email via; [email protected] or whatsapp him on his phone number +2347089384319.

  • Yea.. controversial meaning, they are doing what they can to protect their dollar. And then they say, well we don’t have enough studies. Ok, because cinnamon is hard to get and hasn’t been around for thousands of years. This is intentional dragging of the feet buying time

  • I went int Google Scholar and found that cylon 30 minutes after eating does in fact lower glucose much more than drinking purified water….and I heard water is supposed to help a lot, so that’s that.

  • Don’t trust doctors with the entirety of your health. Do your own research and try natural remedies for yourself. Big pharma just wants your cash, they don’t care about your well-being. Eat healthy people.

  • The pharmaceutical industries are trying to make more money via diabetes sufferers by providing products that just give short term effects.

  • This is crazy and nuts. I took about a tablespoon of Ceylon cinnamon last week when I accidentally reached 320 and it dropped 165 percentage points by morning, and more cinnamon brought it closer to 130. With a careful diet, it could be all I will ever need.

  • google cinn and honey and see benefits. it hits over 10 benefits to your body. personally, i havent had a cold or flu in about 5 yrs now. and thats with a 11 yr old bringing evthing home with her from school. the rest of the family will get sick, but not me. also, when i get bloodwork doneall my results are within normal ranges. just sayin….

  • I learned “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it) from my buddy and read it to burn fat as well as heal my diabetic issues. This guide has shared me the perfect exercise as well as diet regime to follow. Right after 1 day on the diet plan my own blood sugar levels was down about Thirty five points, and by day Four it was lower about 60 points. That worked very well, nevertheless, and I felt great. I`m delighted that my blood glucose is better already…

  • Ceylon Cinnamon for the win.
    Dont use the Cassia variety of cinnamon, it is shown to really damage the liver and kidneys.

  • Great topic. I did not know there were two different types of cinnamon, but I have read it is helpful. I read sprinkling a little cinnamon on freshly, chopped pineapple is a healthier substitute for a sweeter treat.
