Default Cinnamon and Vinegar.

Hi Guys,

Anyone of you taking Cinnamon or Vinegar. I've heard these have positive effects on blood sugars.

Can someone guide me the dose and form you take these in.

Tony

IMO, they are foods, not medicines. They both have excellent qualities. If you like them, incorporate them in your diet and enjoy.

You could PM MCS for the dosage. He'll be able to help you out.

I use a lot of cinnamon because I like it, it does not lower my bgs any more than other foods. I've tried the ACV at meals and it is nasty when taken raw. It really didn't help. I've tried the vinegar tablets, same thing. None of these will replace normal diabetes medication.

Synthetic vinegar can be bad for tooth enamel so be careful. AS a kid i remember how grand mom used to make vinegar with split unripe mangoes, jackfruit, red chilly etc all added and then allowed to mature and this itself was a long drawn process and such vinegar now is only to be found in villages ... coz malls here only sell synthetic vinegar :-)

@ghuffi

I have seen "SEACOD" being SPAMMED on TV ads daily of late.
Personally i prefer taking cold pressed Flaxseed oil rather than fish oil capsules. Alternatively home ground organic flaxseed also works.
