Cinnamon May Reduce Glucose, Lipid and Cholesterol Level in Type 2 Diabetic Individuals
Radhia Khan, Zakkia Khan and Safdar Hussain Shah

Abstract:
The effect of cinnamon on blood glucose and lipid profile was studied in type-2 diabetic individuals for 30 days. Fourteen diabetic individuals of both sexes and of age 40 and above were divided in two groups, each having 7 individuals. Group 1 was assigned for 1.5 g cinnamon dose/day while group 2 was assigned for 1.5g placebo dose/day. The doses were given for 30 days. Fasting blood samples were collected at the start of experiment (day 0) and at the end of experiment (day 30). Serum glucose, serum triglycerides, serum total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein HDL and low density lipoprotein LDL cholesterol, of both cinnamon and placebo groups were determined. The results showed that cinnamon dose significantly reduced glucose, triglycerides and cholesterol. HDL and LDL cholesterol were not affected. Placebo did not affect any of the above parameters.
