The effects of cinnamon supplementation on blood lipid concentrations: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
Cinnamon is a rich botanical source of polyphenols, whose positive effects on blood lipid concentrations have been hypothesized, but have not been conclusively studied. The objective of the study was to systematically review and evaluate the effect of administration of cinnamon on blood lipid concentrations. We assessed 13 randomized controlled trials with 750 participants investigating the effect of cinnamon supplementation on blood lipid concentrations. A meta-analysis was performed using random effect models, with weighted mean differences (WMDs; with 95% confidence interval [CI]) for endpoints calculated using a random effects model.
