Q. Taking lovastatin has controlled my total cholesterol and bad LDL cholesterol. But my triglycerides were always very high. My doctor had no suggestions, so I decided to try cinnamon.
My triglycerides went from 350 to 150 in four months. I took one-fourth to one-half teaspoon daily with a glass of water.
A. Thanks for sharing your extraordinary results. We have heard from others who have managed to lower cholesterol and blood sugar with a daily dose of cinnamon. Some people report that this spice causes heartburn. We would encourage anyone who considers cinnamon to treat it as a drug and check with a physician about safety and potential interactions.
