Good news - cinnamon is good for you

From:, an interesting little website.

Recent research suggests that a daily sprinkle of cinnamon appears to lower blood sugar, triclycerides and cholesterol and improves insulin function - especially in Type 2 diabetics, according to a Human Nutrition Research Center study.
Among 30 patients who took 1 to 6 grams of cinnamon extract for 40 days, average glucose levels fell 18 percent to 29 percent, triglycerides 25 percent to 30 percent, and total cholesterol 12 percent to 26 percent.
The scientists say as little as half a teaspoon of cinnamon appeared to provide benefits that in some cases are nearly as dramatic as those produced by statins -- the cholesterol-lowering drugs that are taken by millions of Americans.
The Beltsville, Md., Center, part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, says bigger human trials are needed to confirm the findings. Their research appears in the journal Diabetes Care.

I wonder if this cancels out all the negatives for a big gooey Cinnabon?
