2 Know how much and how often to take it. Cinnamon is an unproven treatment, and as such there are no cast iron rules for the amount you should take in order to experience the potential health benefits. Recommendations vary from ½ a teaspoon a day, up to six teaspoons a day. If in doubt err on the side of caution and consume less. Large doses of cinnamon can be toxic, so in no instances should you go above more than one teaspoon or 6 grams a day.
- As ever, you should consult a Doctor before regularly consuming cinnamon for health benefits.
