A 3 year study by UTM (Universiti Teknologi Malaysia) has confirmed previous findings that cinnamon has the potential to lower blood sugar levels. According to its research and development manager Prof. Dr. Mohammad Roji Sarmidi, their research showed that the spice has positive effects on the disease, especially Type II diabetes.
