Cinnamon is obtained from the inner bark of several trees from the genus Cinnamomum. It has been recognized as a spice and a medicine since antiquity; in fact, it was so highly prized among ancient nations that it was regarded as a gift for monarchs and even for a god: a fine inscription records the gift of cinnamon and cassia to the temple of Apollo at Miletus. Cinnamon continues to be a popular spice and more recently has been studied extensively for its positive effects in blood sugar and lipid metabolism. Chromium is an essential nutrient required for sugar and fat metabolism. However, normal dietary intake of chromium for humans is often suboptimal. In such individuals, supplemental chromium can help support healthy blood sugar metabolism.
