Huckabee And The Cinnamon Roll

Written by 

Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is facing criticism over his endorsement of a cinnamon and chromium picolinate food supplement currently marketed as a cure for diabetes. Although former Gov. Huckabee discontinued his endorsement, the New York Times notes that Huckabee's past questionable financial ventures include "patriot survival packs" and a cure for cancer hidden in the Bible.

From what I've seen, the product does not claim to "cure" diabetes, but states it will reverse diabetes symptoms. Unscrupulous marketers are quick to call it a cure.

According to WebMD, "It's not yet clear if cinnamon is good for diabetes. Research findings have been mixed, and the American Diabetes Association dismisses cinnamon’s use in diabetes treatment." The Mayo Clinic says that "cinnamon may be helpful as a supplement to regular diabetes treatment in people with type 2 diabetes" by increasing insulin action.

At California Medical Weight Management, we want to congratulate Gov. Huckabee on his amazing weight loss of over 100 lbs. But as Huckabee himself noted, he accomplished this through a program of exercise and diet, not miracle pills. Facing criticism, Huckabee defended his endorsement of the Diabetes Solution Kit, but acknowledged the importance of exercise and healthy eating in fighting diabetes. You can view details of Huckabee's weight loss journey on YouTube.
