Health Notes

Cinnamon

Cinnamon
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: 1 to 6 grams daily

Colic
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Cinnamon is a gas-relieving herb used in traditional medicine to treat colic. It is generally given by healthcare professionals as teas or decoctions to the infant.(more)
Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: 1 to 6 grams dailyTest tube studies have suggested that cinnamon may improve glucose utilization. In a study of people with type 2 diabetes, supplementing with cinnamon in the amount of 1, 3, or 6 grams per day for 40 days was significantly more effective than a placebo at reducing blood glucose levels.1 The reduction averaged 18 to 29% in the three treatments groups, and 1 gram per day was as effective as 3 and 6 grams per day. The benefits of cinnamon for lowering blood sugar levels was confirmed in a double-blind study.2 However, in two other double-blind studies, cinnamon was not more effective than a placebo.3, 4 The different results in these studies may have been due in part to differences in body weight, initial blood sugar levels, and medication use among the different populations studied.

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Carminatives (also called aromatic digestive tonics or aromatic bitters) may be used to relieve symptoms of indigestion, particularly when there is excessive gas. It is believed that carminative agents work, at least in part, by relieving spasms in the intestinal tract.1

There are numerous carminative herbs, including European angelica root (Angelica archangelica), anise, Basil, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, dill, ginger, oregano, rosemary, sage, lavender, and thyme.2 Many of these are common kitchen herbs and thus are readily available for making tea to calm an upset stomach. Rosemary is sometimes used to treat indigestion in the elderly by European herbal practitioners.3 The German Commission E monograph suggests a daily intake of 4-6 grams of sage leaf.4 Pennyroyal is no longer recommended for use in people with indigestion, however, due to potential side effects.

Yeast Infection
Dose: Refer to label instructions

The essential oil of cinnamon contains various chemicals that are believed to be responsible for cinnamon's medicinal effects. Important among these compounds are eugenol and cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde and cinnamon oil vapors exhibit extremely potent antifungal properties in test tubes.1 In a preliminary study in people with AIDS, topical application of cinnamon oil was effective against oral thrush.2

Menorrhagia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Cinnamon has been used historically for the treatment of various menstrual disorders, including heavy menstruation.1 This is also the case with shepherd's purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris).2 Other herbs known as astringents (tannin-containing plants that tend to decrease discharges), such as cranesbill, periwinkle, witch hazel, and oak, were traditionally used for heavy menstruation. Human trials are lacking, so the usefulness of these herbs is unknown. Black horehound was sometimes used traditionally for heavy periods, though this approach has not been investigated by modern research.

Colic
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Several gas-relieving herbs used in traditional medicine for colic are approved in Germany for intestinal spasms.1 These include yarrow, garden angelica (Angelica archangelica),peppermint, cinnamon, and fumitory (Fumaria officinalis). These herbs are generally given by healthcare professionals as teas or decoctions to the infant. Peppermint tea should be used with caution in infants and young children, as they may choke in reaction to the strong menthol.

Parts Used & Where Grown

Most people are familiar with the sweet but pungent taste of the oil, powder, or sticks of bark from the cinnamon tree. Cinnamon trees grow in a number of tropical areas, including parts of India, China, Madagascar, Brazil, and the Caribbean.

Good with a cup of coffee

Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Breakfast Squares - Iced Cinnamon Bun:

They are not supposed to taste like a Cinnabon. They are meal replacement squares. They are small but dense, making you chew quite a bit and adding to satiation. I like to have a cup of coffee with the breakfast square. It's also great to eat on the run. I work out in the morning and this way I have the nutrients I need without having a full stomach. It keeps me satisfied until lunch. I'd say it's a win/win. I also like the strawberry squares.

          These taste like cinnamon flavored cardboard. However, when I did manage to choke one down, it was filling. So if you want to be full and don't mind eating cardboard, then these are for you...

            Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Breakfast Squares - Iced Cinnamon Bun:

            The first time I tried one of these I microwaved it expecting a Pilsbury cinnamon roll straight out the oven flavor! I was shocked that it didn't really taste like that at all. I did finish it but I had mixed feelings on my first impression.The flavor wasn't bad it was just missing something. Than I decided to try another one and eat it with a chocolate milk flavored proetin shake. I fell in love with the combination of flavors. The cream and cinnamon essence from the breakfast bar mixed with the chocolate was incredible. The first time I had one of these squares I drank orange juice with it and it just didn't blend well. I feel more energetic, fulfilled, and stronger after eating one of these and the addition of the protein shake only makes the taste that much better! They are priced just right with the BOGO offer GNC offers and I recommend getting them. Protein bars do get boring and this is a good replacement, probably less expensive too with better flavor. I have not tried the other flavors yet but I'll be purchasing this flavor for a long time. Thanks!

                They were on sale and I remember thinking I wish I could try this before I buy an entire box of them. The texture is like plaster. Then it tastes like medicine. 170 claories for something that tastes like medicine.

                    I think these are great. They were delicious! They are a bit pricey, but if you can get them on sale or at the begining of the month with your Gold Card, that helps. I eat one of these for breakfast and they last me for about 3 hours before I feel hungry again. They have more calories than I allow myself for a snack, but they would be great for a snack also.
