Lyra Nara Blog

Consumption of cinnamon is associated with favorable reductions in plasma glucose and lipid levels, according to research published in the September/October issue of the Annals of Family Medicine.

Cinnamon intake also was linked to significant changes in lipid levels, including decreases in levels of total cholesterol (?15.60 mg/dL), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) (?9.42 mg/dL), and triglycerides…
