Cinnamon 1000 mg is an herbal based nutritional supplement.
Cinnamon is mostly known and used as a spice by most people. However, it has been used in traditional medicine. One particular type of the spice, Cinnamomum cassia, has been shown through clinical research to regulate blood sugar levels, making it an ideal choice for both diabetics and hypoglycemics. Other health benefits credited to cinnamon are: it reduces the LDL levels (potentially helpful in preventing cardiovascular disease), it reduces pain associated with arthritis, it may reduce proliferation of cancer cells (it may help in cancer prevention and treatment), it reduces menstrual pain, and it has antibacterial and anti inflammatory effects.
Most of the studies have shown mixed results so far and additional research is needed to prove cinnamon’s health benefits. A correct and optimal dosage has not been established yet, but heavy usage may cause irritations of the mouth, lips, and skin. Allergic reactions are also possible.
High quantities of this spice type may be toxic for people suffering from liver problems. Nature Made Cinnamon 1000 mg is not recommended to people taking hepatotoxic drugs (as it contains coumarin, a substance considered toxic for the liver and kidneys). It is also not recommended for people with known medical conditions especially if they are taking other medication to lower blood glucose levels (such as diabetics). The recommended dose for this formula is two capsules daily with a meal.

Nature Made brand is also one of the most well received and appreciated by pharmacists and consumers alike. The formula is advertised as free of artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, and allergens. It is claimed as an effective product due to the quality of ingredients and the strict manufacturing processes.
However, the manufacturer’s statements have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA, and the formula itself is not the subject of clinical research. Moreover, research on the active ingredients is still contradictory on some benefits, and only more research can prove them.
