I do make sure to take very small doses and haven't been taking it every day.

If cinnamon performed a similar bg reduction/hunger curtailing function, then I'd definitely switch to that.

Salt, in moderation, like everything else, can be controlled. Salt is also what drives the blood pressure level up, if you consume too much of it.

Since since I'v had high blood pressure for over twenty years, I don't use a whole lot of salt either. Very little, if any at all.
