BACKGROUND AND AIMS There is some evidence regarding the positive effects of cinnamon on metabolic status in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). However, they are conflicting. In the present study, we aimed to systematically review the effects of cinnamon on glycemic status and anthropometric indices in patients with T2DM. METHODS Five electronic databases including PubMed/Medline, SCOPUS, Web of Sciences, EMBASE, and the Cochrane library were searched until 31 February 2018 with no… 
The effect of cinnamon supplementation on lipid profiles in patients with type 2 diabetes: A systematic review and meta-analysis of clinical trials.
TLDR
Cinnamon supplementation significantly decreased serum TG, TC, and LDL-C concentrations, but did not change HDL-C levels, in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Lipid profile and blood glucose in patients with Diabetes Mellitus treated with Cinnamon - Systematic Review and Meta-analysis with randomized clinical research
This study aimed to measure the efficiency of cinnamon in patients with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM2), comparing fasting plasma glucose averages and lipid profiles with a placebo group through a
The effect of cinnamon supplementation on glycemic control in women with polycystic ovary syndrome: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Results indicated that cinnamon supplementation significantly reduced homeostatic model assessment for insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) scores in women with PCOS, indicating that consumption of cinnamon can be safe and this can be a useful recommendation for improving IR and promotion of healthy life.
The Effects of Fenugreek on Cardiometabolic Risk Factors in Adults: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
TLDR
Fenugreek seed as an adjuvant therapy may reduce serum levels of FBS, LDL-C and HbA1c, however, due to high heterogeneity in glycemic status, findings must be interpreted with great caution.
Analysis of the effectiveness of cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) in the reduction of glycemic and lipidic levels of adults with type 2 diabetes
TLDR
This study will be the first to investigate cinnamon to reduce glycemic, lipid, and anthropometric levels in Brazil and may be used as an alternative or additional medicine in cases where only oral antidiabetic agents are used and can promote the use of the product to minimize future complications of patients with diabetes and people who do not have the disease.
Effects of Capsicum annuum supplementation on the components of metabolic syndrome: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Analysis of the included 11 studies showed that C. annuum supplementation had significant effect on low density lipoprotein-cholesterol and marginallysignificant effect on body weight, but larger and well-designed clinical trials are needed to investigate the effects of C.annuum on MetS.
Effectiveness of Medicinal Plants for Glycaemic Control in Type 2 Diabetes: An Overview of Meta-Analyses of Clinical Trials
Aims: To rank the effectiveness of medicinal plants for glycaemic control in Type 2 Diabetes (T2DM). Methods: MEDLINE, EMBASE, CINAHL and Cochrane Central were searched in October 2020. We included
Mechanistic and therapeutic insight into the effects of cinnamon in polycystic ovary syndrome: a systematic review
TLDR
Overall, the effects of cinnamon on the improvement of metabolic status in PCOS were promising, however, more clinical trials with higher doses of cinnamon and a longer duration of intervention are needed.
Probiotic Yogurt Fortified with Vitamin D Can Improve Glycemic Status in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Patients: a Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
Pro-YFD in the diets of patients with NAFLD may attenuate insulin resistance and improve serum level of 25(OH)D3, and there were no significant changes in diet caloric intake, physical activity, or anthropometric indices in the 2 groups during the interventions.
Medicinal plants in the adjunctive treatment of patients with type-1 diabetes: a systematic review of randomized clinical trials
TLDR
The results of these RCTs show that cinnamon pills and Berberine/Silymarine compound capsules may decrease blood glucose indices from baseline, while fenugreek seeds and fig leaf decoction do not show any statistically significant effect.

TLDR
Cinnamon may improve anthropometric parameters, glycemic indices and lipid profile of patients with type II diabetes, and these benefits are significantly more prominent in patients with higher baseline BMI (BMI ≥ 27).
The Effect of Cinnamon on Glucose of Type II Diabetes Patients
TLDR
Results showed that using certain amount of cinnamon for 60 days did not change the glucose level of diabetic patients, and using cinnamon to type II diabetes patients cannot be recommended and more studies are needed in future.

Taking cinnamon could be useful for lowering serum HbA1C in type 2 diabetics with Hb a1C >7.0 in addition to usual care, according to a randomized, controlled trial.
To what extent does cinnamon administration improve the glycemic and lipid profiles?
TLDR
About 1-6 g of these cinnamon species mainly in powder seems to be an adjunct drug treatment for type 2 diabetes mellitus and other conditions of glycemic impairment, but more controlled clinical trials are needed.
Cinnamon intake lowers fasting blood glucose: meta-analysis.
TLDR
A meta-analysis of clinical studies of the effect of cinnamon intake on people with type 2 diabetes and/or prediabetes that included three new clinical trials along with five trials used in previous meta-analyses was done to assess cinnamon's effectiveness in lowering FBG.
Effect of cinnamon supplementation on glucose, lipids levels, glomerular filtration rate, and blood pressure of subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus
TLDR
Cinnamon supplementation reduced plasma glucose, HbA1c, triglyceride, TG/HDL-C ratio, and BP and increased HDL-C levels and eGFR in subjects with T2DM in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial.
Cinnamon supplementation does not improve glycemic control in postmenopausal type 2 diabetes patients.
TLDR
Cinnamon supplementation (1.5 g/d) does not improve whole-body insulin sensitivity or oral glucose tolerance and does not modulate blood lipid profile in postmenopausal patients with type 2 diabetes.
Cinnamon extract improves fasting blood glucose and glycosylated hemoglobin level in Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
It is indicated that cinnamon supplementation is able to significantly improve blood glucose control in Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes.
The glycaemic outcomes of Cinnamon, a review of the experimental evidence and clinical trials
TLDR
Cinnamon has the potential to be a useful add-on therapy in the discipline of integrative medicine in managing type 2 diabetes, but at present the evidence is inconclusive and long-term trials aiming to establish the efficacy and safety of cinnamon is needed.
