One of the easiest things you can do to improve blood
sugar and increase insulin is add up to a 1/2 teaspoon

Place the cinnamon in a cup. Add the boiling water and steep for 10 minutes. Sweeten with stevia if desired.
More Health Benefits of Cinnamon
Cinnamon increases vitality and balances energy. It is particularly good for people who tend to have a hot upper body and colder lower body. I see this quite often, especially among women entering menopause. Symptoms are flushed face, sweating, insomnia with cold and dry legs and feet.
Cinnamon improves the digestion of fruits, milk, and other dairy products.
Cinnamon is also good for bloating, gas, poor digestion, arthritis, anemia, painful menstrual periods, and diarrhea.
Cinnamon can add to the effect of insulin and other blood sugar medication. Consult a health care practitioner if you are currently taking medication to control your blood sugar.
If you're pregnant or breast feeding, don't take extra cinnamon greater then normally found in food unless recommended by your health care practitioner.
