Cinnamon has been used by humans since as early as 2800 B.C. The earliest recorded use was in China by Shen Nung, the father of Chinese medicine. Medicinally, it has some powerful benefits like helping to reduce blood sugar levels in Type 2 diabetics who are not insulin dependent, significantly reduced their fasting sugar, triglycerides, and cholesterol compared to placebo*. Additionally, in vitro studies have shown cinnamon to be a powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Cinnamon is also an excellent source of calcium, iron, and fiber!
