    No idea. I read the same things, but I do keto and all that.... Still, I use it almost daily in the kitchen, just to be on the safe side. ;) (And I kind of got hooked on the taste anyway)

    No evidence, that I have seen, that it does any harm. Some evidence that cinnamon has a slight beneficial affect.

    The standard turmeric is only good for cooking. To use turmeric for health take a tablet that has curcumin added that helps it absorb into the bloodstream

    Well, I am using it to reduce chronic inflammation (especially arthritis)
    - and it seems to be helping quite a bit.

    Not a clue about it helping with diabetes though.

    I take Turmeric and cinnamon as I have arthritis and they are both anti inflammatory, if they are contributing to my stable blood sugars too then Brucie bonus!
