(CNN) — A new study suggests a particular spice could help pre-diabetic people.
Researchers say they found that cinnamon may improve blood sugar and may slow the progression from pre-diabetes to type two diabetes.
The 12-week research looked at 51 people with elevated blood sugars.
They say adding cinnamon to the diet appeared to keep blood sugar levels stable in participants with pre-diabetes.
They point out that longer and larger studies are still needed.
The Journal of the Endocrine Society published the pilot study Tuesday.
