It is discouraging to hear that this was not the case for people who tried it.
NHE wrote:A classic saying in the field of toxicology, before the discovery of endocrine disrupting chemicals such as bisphenol-A, was that the dose makes the poison. With respect to potentially beneficial MS treatments, the inverse of that statement may also be true, i.e., the dose makes the treatment. Since we don't know much at this time about the characteristics of the cinnamon extract used in the study and the dose given to the test subjects, it is difficult to evaluate the potential usefulness of cinnamon in MS. It could be the case that to get the same effective dose, one would have to consume considerably more whole cinnamon than what has been reported in this thread. We should also keep in mind that most of the DMDs never claimed to useful for treating symptoms. Their only claims were for modifying lesion count, relapse frequency and disease progression, not symptoms.

Because of this thread, I am now adding some to my morning smoothie...yummy.
I mean hey, what doesn't kill you might help!
