    Default 1000mg cinnamon

    Started taking 1000mg of cinnamon today (was on 300mg worth of cinnamon in pill form). Cinnamon burpies galore!

    Also have a headache, anyone have any side effects from cinnamon (pill form or other form)?

    If you are getting headaches, you may be taking too much cinnamon.

    I have been taking cinnamon capsules for over two years, real good results, but it did need a bit of tweaking.

    I started with 1000mgr in the morning and at night. Way too much, headaches and dizziness. Cut it down to 500mgr now that I also exercise a bit and it's fine.

    Since this is not a prescription drug, your GP won't be able to help you find the right dosis, so you need to find it yourself. If you were happy on 300mgr, I'd wouldn't change it.

    TY I did a dose this morning of 1000mg cinnamon and it didn't bother me much, that was around the time I had a bite to eat, so that may have been the issue, that I need to eat when I take them.

    I make my own capsules now. It's way cheaper than gnc cinnamon capsules.

    With cinnamon, there has been issues with miscarriages and cinnamon as it stimulates the uterus, but risk has only been reported with doses over 1gr (1000mgr) a day. If you are on any blood thinners, be careful with cinnamon as it is also a blood thinner. High doses of cinnamon are not recommended since the liver toxicity of continued use has not been properly evaluated.

    However, in small quantities, it is consumed daily in many cultures with no reported side effects.

    bibbles,

    unlike vitex, soy and other things, cinnamon can be taken daily regardless of the stage of your cycle. It only helps with insulin resistance, nothing else.

    I take it everyday in the morning, 500mgr.

    Thanks - I think I will just keep adding it to my tea and my breakfast cereal and toast - cut back on the sugar!

    I'm curious as to how you make them yourself.

    As well as, how much can you take while pregnant? (Not yet for me :/)

    Terry and Blue_Butterfly,

    I buy the capsules empty from a medical supplier (you can find them online), the size is 00, these can hold 500mgr of cinnamon and then I buy ground cinnamon in bulk from the supermarket (costco sells big jars of cinnamon for cheap). It also gives you the chance of buying your own cinnamon bark and grind it yourself, you can go organic if you like. The main advantage is that you know what you're having, where as in the capsules you buy pre-made, you never know! Also, the price difference is huge.

    I sit in front of the tv, watching friends or other mindless thing and capsule away. I make about 100 per friends episode

    About the dosis while being pregnant, I really can't tell... I know that women in many cultures have cinnamon everyday and there is no record of higher miscarriage rates, however, I don't know how much they have...

    Question

    For the cinnamon sticks do you just put them in a cup of tea? Did you find that they had the same results?
