Cinnulin PF is a water-soluble extract of cinnamon that is sometimes used as an alternative medicine for improving blood sugar control in diabetes or improving body composition. Speak with your doctor before adding this or any other alternative medical treatment to your daily regimen to make sure it is safe for you.
A small preliminary study published in the "Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition" in December 2006 found that taking Cinnulin PF for 12 weeks may help improve body composition and decrease fasting blood sugar levels and systolic blood pressure. Further research appears to show promise for the potential for benefits from the use of Cinnulin PF and cinnamon. For example, a review article published in the "Journal of Diabetes Science and Technology" in May 2010 noted that some studies have shown potential benefits of cinnamon or cinnamon extracts for improving cholesterol and blood pressure levels and increasing insulin sensitivity and lean body mass in people with Type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome. However, the authors also noted that not all studies found beneficial results; the type and amount of cinnamon, as well as any medical conditions and medications people are taking, may affect the potential for benefits from cinnamon.
