Historically cinnamon has been used for loss of appetite, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal complaints such as indigestion and dysepsia. The spice has recently gained much attention for its potential treatment for blood sugar swings. There are two major types of cinnamon both of which are from the bark of related trees. Cinnamomum verum or Cinnamomum zeylanicum is one. Cinnamomum cassia or Cinnamomum aromaticum is the type most commonly used as as spice. Cinnamon cassia has been more qualitatively studied, and is thought to have more blood sugar balancing and insulin-stimulating properties. Blood sugar swings from low to high glycemia is a very common condition that resuts in energy and mood swings. Control of these swings is attained through diet and exercise regulation. Cinnamon can also help to balance such swings and help energy and mood fluctuations. Cinnamon can be used when acute, as needed, if such swings are rare. It can also be used long term for more chronic blood sugar swing issues to help establish balance.
