Comparison of the Efficacy of Cinnamon Capsule over Cinnamon Infusion on Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus Subjects

T. Sivapriya and Sheila John    

Abstract: Background and Objectives: Functional foods are commonly ingested orally. For efficient bioavailability, a product must be in a form that is easily digestible and thus able to enter the blood stream rapidly. The objective of the study was to compare the effectiveness of Cinnamomum zeylanicum infusion and Cinnamomum zeylanicum capsules on blood plasma level of type 2 diabetes mellitus subjects. Materials and Methods: One gram of Cinnamomum zeylanicum capsule and 75 mL of infusion were supplemented to 60 subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus. The effectiveness of the supplements were investigated on serum blood glucose levels after a period of 45 days. The blood parameters assessed were fasting blood glucose, postprandial blood glucose, serum insulin and serum fructosamine. Results: Results indicated that there was no significant difference between the capsule ingested group and infusion ingested group indicating that consumption of both forms of cinnamon had the same effect. Conclusion: Hence, it was concluded that cinnamon powder when consumed regularly at effective levels has a good impact on blood glucose levels of type 2 diabetes subjects.
