From Valinda, California, USA:

What foods lower blood glucose?


There have been some limited studies showing that one to three grams of cinnamon per day can improve lipids and blood sugar control in persons with type 2 diabetes, but I am unaware of any other foods that independently lower blood sugars. Most foods do the opposite and raise blood sugars. Your challenge is to find a combination of carbohydrates, protein and fat that will provide optimal blood sugar control. Speak with your health care team about the possibility of including cinnamon into your meal plan.
