Here is the typical legal warnings.  The FDA has not approved cinnamon to cure any medical condition. This information is given for informational purposes and is not intended to treat, diagnose or cure any illness. consult a physician before taking any cinnamon.

We find the evidence backed with research citations as to why cinnamon spice maybe the solution for diabetes, candida, weight loss, cancer, Alzheimer’s, toenail fungus, parkinson’s, stomach flu and much more. In this section we will look the evidence results. The benefits of cinnamon are surprising.

1. Blood Sugar Issues

Several studies indicate that cinnamon has properties that help those with insulin issues. It is, as a result, used by many with Type 2 diabetics to control their blood sugar swings.


Warning high doses of typical grocery store cinnamon can cause liver damage.  An alternative is ceylon cinnamon, which has low levels of coumarin as compared to cassia cinnamon from your grocery.  But the upside is that grocery store cinnamon is more effective in dealing with blood sugar issues, so you do not need that much.    A practical answer is to double your dosage of ceylon cinnamon, if you choose to use that, since that dosed will not come close to the high coumarin levels found in cassia cinnamon.  But either can be reasonably used.  Remember more is not necessarily better with cassia.  Be reasonable.  Even drinking too much water can kill you.

In another study cinnamon was shown to be effective for blood sugar control in rats. If you take cinnamon for diabetes, take it in moderation as part of a healthy diet and moderate exercise.

Paul David of UC Davis said in this NPR story of 2013 that cinnamon provides a 3-5% effect on blood sugar levels.  This is like older diabetes drugs. That tends to make it a good choice for pre diabetics.  


  1. Candida Yeast Infections

Cinnamon has been found to the surprise of the researchers to have an amazing ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections. This even  works on Escherichia coli bacteria and Candida albicans fungus. This study proved that cinnamon oil was one of three leading essential oils effective against Candida.



One doctor claims that all cancers have candida associated with them.  So, he theorizes that if you take care of the candida you take care of the cancer.

Another study found that cinnamon oil is effective against three strains of candida, candida albicans, candida tropicalis, and candida krusei. Real ceylon cinnamon Tea infused with Cinnamon Bark Oil could be used to fight internal candida infections and boost your immune system. For topical applications (except genital areas and mucous membranes) 1% Ceylon Cinnamon Leaf Oil mixed with a good carrier oil could be an effective treatment.  It is good to have cinnamon in a prepared essential oil.

As in folk lore Odin hung from the tree upside down and after nine days, came to know the secret runes. Today Dr. Bill strives to look at repeating truths in a different way.
