I am taking this product to help me with weight-loss. I've been taking it for a month now and it doesn't seem to be doing anything. I take one before each meal with a glass of water.

Has a nice taste of cinnamon when you take it but no after taste.

Buy True instead
I bought this because of the BOGO sale.
I open the capsules and put the contents in with my coffee grounds - and it does an adequate job of flavoring my coffee.
However, even the smell isn't like Cinnamon should smell, and nothing at all like the Swanson's True Cinnamon. I put the True Cinnamon into everything and it's just a heavenly cinnamon aroma!
Try them both and see which you prefer.

I ♥ Cinnamon!
There are so many health benefits of cinnamon! And the burbies taste yummy! (If you know what I mean?) Easy to swallow capsules....I love to open the bottle and just sniff the aroma of the cinnamon! I will be buying it again, after I finish my second, BOGO bottle! Great deal!

Diet any one?
I had read how cinnamon will help loose weight so I decided to try. I didn't need to loose a lot of weight, just maintain of which I was having a 5 pound struggle. Well, I took the cinnamon, one before each meal, and in a week I had dropped 2 pounds. Over the Holidays I thought, when I stepped on the scale this AM, here goes the 5 pounds, and had only gained half a pound. And I didn't watch what I ate. I ate the dessert, the potatoes, the nummy warm rolls and only half a pound. YEAH!!! So if it works on just the few pounds I needed to shed, which are always the hardest, it should work with those that need to shed a few more. Oh, before I began taking the cinnamon, I lost 30 pounds. That took almost a year. That was a calorie counting diet with no aids. That is why I am so stuck on not gaining. Also, I am 74.

This product is great for the value, but one draw back is if you do not eat enough before taking, you may burp up strong cinnamon flavor.

I use Cinnamon Extract twice a day. I know the importance of Cinnamon. Even though I sprinkle Cinnamon on apples, rubarb and apple crisp etc I still take your Cinnamon Extract twice a day. Love your products

Can make reflux worse!
I really wanted to use this but after a few tries I had to give it up because it irritated my throat. I have found other herbs for insulin function that don't cause my reflux problems to escalate.

This is the first time I have ever been disappointed in a Swanson brand product. This cinnamon extract has a foul odor like spoiled meat. I tried to use the capsules anyway since I unfortunately misplaced the return label or I would have rejected the product as unacceptable. However, the taste was just as disgusting as the smell and I am forced to omit what I consider an important supplement. Other Swanson cinnamon products have been fine but this one flat out nauseates me.

Smells like a chemical
Doesn't look or smell like cinnamon. Glucose numbers haven't changed, so probably effective enough. I grimace every time I open the bottle, though. Savings not worth it, for me.

I take these twice a day and they seem to work well for me.
