Supplementation and exercise + 3 capsules daily supplement of 380 mg for 8 weeks received cinnamon, exercise group and the controlchr('39')s taking placebo. Of all the subjects before and after the 8 week study protocol for measuring blood glucose and insulin levels and insulin resistance index, blood samples were taken.
