INGREDIENTS & FURTHER INFORMATION
CONCENTRATION OF CINNAMON BARK EXTRACT
There are no fillers contained in this supplement. It is concentrated at a proportion of 4:1, meaning that for every four parts of raw Cinnamon Bark, one part of extract is taken out. It should be stored in an area that is free from sources of light, heat or moisture.
CINNAMON BARK EXTRACT SIDE EFFECTS
Provided the correct serving sizes are adhered to, this Cinnamon Bark extract is considered entirely safe. Cinnamon oil is something that is routinely found in common household cooking cinnamon, and in high levels, it can be dangerous and considered toxic. This supplement contains no such danger, as it is extracted from the water-soluble portions of Cinnamon Bark and contains none of the harmful oil present in regular cinnamon. However, it does have the same aroma and general flavor of kitchen quality cinnamon.
Cinnamon Bark extract blends well and pleasantly with hot tea, and can also be dissolved easily into room temperature water or juice. It adds a cinnamon flavor to whatever it is applied to.
Taste great and is an excellent GDA (glucose disposal agent).
I spent the past two weeks establishing a baseline and testing my own response to a very specific high carb ZERO fat meal that I use to drive carnitine into cells via the resulting endogenous insulin spike.
My overnight-fasted and 2+ hour postprandial blood-glucose values were consistently between 85 mg/dL and 98 mg/dL (with the higher end of the fasted range actually occurring after the overnight fast immediately upon waking – the “dawn effect”).
Without any GDA my postprandial values following the high-carb zero fat meal (intended to spike endogenous insulin) were in the high 130s mg/dL (nearly 140) at 45 minute after ingestion.
Today was the first day introducing teh cinnamon; I added 1350 mg of this cinnamon extract into the high-carb meal.
Blood glucose levels were measured 45 mins after ingestion and I was SHOCKED to see a value of 98 mg/dL. Therefore, approximately 5 minutes later, I took a second reading using the same glucometer to validate my first measurement and this time the value was 85 mg/dL! (this is as good as my best fasted level).
This was just with 1350 mg of one simple GDA—cinnamon extract.
I am so excited to see such a measurable effect that I just had to share.*

Cinnamon is an important spice for me and finding “good” true cinnamon is not easy. The best way to tell if you have got the right thing is smell. Well, I received this package - opened it - and the aroma was the great aroma of real cinnamon. I have spent time trying to find good cinnamon, I did but this is the best.
Cinnamon is one of God’s healing plants and I used it to control my blood sugar. I eat it daily for Its many benefit’s antibacterial, anti fungal, antioxidant, brain fog, helps fight Candida Overgrowth, and many other plus it just makes what you sprinkle it on just that much more tastier. I don’t think I could find a better quality cinnamon anywhere. Keep up the good work Great Product.*

This is my 2nd order of the cinnamon bark. I mix it in with my coffee...mixes better with cream and hot stuff. Gives a unique flavor that is very good to me! I may try it in iced tea as well. I have read many reviews of this online where drinking the tea hot or cold helps lower blood sugar a bunch. I am a Type II diabetic; so that is very important to me. I've not been tested here lately, but I have begun losing weight again. Not sure exactly what is helping, but I know high blood sugar levels can make you gain weight. ;o( So, I am glad to be able to find this so inexpensive and that it taste so good! Not bitter to me at all. Tastes like cinnamon and I like cinnamon. So, my coffee is like the kind you get from Starbucks! But, it is even better for you. Thanks again for the great packaging and the speedy shipment. I will continue to use bulksupplements for my nutritional supplements. Probably add on more. Very pleased!!! Thanks again! *

I bought 1kg of cinnamon bark for the whole family after hearing about its health benefits. The powder is finely ground, smells and tastes great. No problems dissolving. I expected a stronger cinnamon taste, but its very light. I put it in my milk, cocoa, cinnamon toast, etc. Would purchase again.*

Well, it has yielded amazing results. Since using this product, my father has required significantly less insulin shoots and his blood sugar has been more regularly hovering around an acceptable range. This was my second purchase of Cinnamon Bark Extract Powder and will continue to have it in my arsenal of naturopathic weaponry.*

This cinnamon powder does its job well. It is 4x concentrated as whole powder, and the benefits are water extracted! After taking a teaspoon a day, my fasting blood glucose went from 120 to 74 in 8 days. It has little smell of cinnamon, but it has a delicious sweet cinnamon taste that easily dissolves in drinks. I highly recommend this and will definitely purchase in a larger amount.*
