I use to keep my blood sugar in check and avoid having hypoglycemia. It works for me. Also good to avoid having sweet cravings.

RETRACTED, SINCE CHANGED CINNAMON TYPE Incredible for glucose control, AT FULL DOSE

Now that NOW has unfortunately switched to Cassia Cinnamon like "everyone else," my original review below and 5-star rating no longer apply. After nearing the end of my first bottle, 120 capsules, it was a no-brainer to buy 240. I've tried other Cinnamon products (mostly extracts of the more-studied cassia variety that's common to American spice racks), and they don't compare to NOW's whole-herb True/Ceylon/Verum Cinnamon Bark product. But it is absolutely ESSENTIAL that I take TWO capsules before each of two meals, as the label recommends. Surprisingly, one capsule at a time has minimal effect for me, while two at a time have been *extremely* effective at keeping glucose from spiking. It's also nice to know that the variety of cinnamon used in this product is naturally low in coumarins, which researchers say might have some level of toxicity for susceptible people in large or sustained doses. (Whole-herb cassia, OTOH, has pretty high levels of coumarins. Those are absent in water-extracted cassia products, but so are the potentially-beneficial cinnamaldehyde oils.) BTW, I notice that my blood pressure seems to have become even more consistently normal than before I started using this product, though I'm not yet certain whether the NOW Cinnamon Bark is contributing to that. But for glucose control, it's a KEEPER!

When I opened the bottle with the Cinnamon Bark I ordered from iHerb, I knew I had made an excellent purchase. The powerful scent of fresh cinnamon exploded from the bottle, and filled the air around me. It was a scent I had never experienced before in my life. No cinnamon product I had ever bought locally smelled as fresh as what iHerb sent me. I could not have been more pleased with this purchase.
