Cinnamon increases insulin production. There have been scientific studies done with diabetics that found a real benefit. I was taking it regularly before I got pregnant again; I'm not officially diabetic but I think I'm borderline, and I can tell when my blood sugar is too high. It helped. Unfortunately it gives me heartburn now that I'm pregnant ... oh well. I got it in capsules at a drug store, but you can also make tea from cinnamon sticks or just eat a spoonful of powder, if you can stand it.
