    cinnamon-original study was from India. It found 500mg/d was useful. This is about 1/8 tsp. of bulk from the local Coop. However, food in India may already have more such spices than our normal diet, so a bland diet may benefit from a higher level of supplement.

    This was very interesting information and I will try this since I cannot tolerate statins. The adverse affects of statins leave me with severe headaches, muscle aches and joint pain as well as insomnia. After trying the red yeast rice, walnuts, dark chocolate, I will let you know how it goes. Thank you for your expertise.
