    Cinnamon


    I really enjoy adding ground cinnamon to my post workout shake. Is there any reason I shouldn't do this? The reason I ask is because I believe it affects blood sugar....

    After training, insulin sensitivity is already good, cinnamon drops the insulin load of the food, but you want the insulin effect to kick start repair/growth/anabolism.
    Try it (if you want) and give it a good 1month, if not working, take it out and Assess

    Well said, thanks bro. I'm probably best just using it in my post cardio shake.

    I've found that cinnamon makes me run to the toilet within 30 minutes of ingestion. Cinnamon extract in glycobol, no-explode, or even cinnamon added to my coffee at Starbucks has this effect.

    cinnamon has some positive health benefits that probably outweigh the probably very minor impact it could have in hindering muscle growth

    like for those who are insulin resistant, this helps break down the process. like runner_79 said it works wonders for your intake.

    Mike Mahler did a report on SHR. 1 metric teaspoon (actual measured) is the right dosage. Name is Chris. And no probs...
