[QUOTE=hmahappy] Without mentioning websites or forums, i read an article somewhere, that cinnamon helps lower insulin, people with PCO have high insulin levels that cause androgens to go haywire.[/QUOTE]

Fiber as well, I think. In browsing through the discussions on the digestive cleanses, I've come to the conclusion that it is the ongoing fiber supplements that is really helping people with their acne. One of the posters that said this sent a link to a study on diabetics using psyllium husk capsules before meals to lower their blood sugar. And if you look at glycemic indexes of foods. Orange juice has a high glycemic index while oranges do not. It's because of the fiber.

So it's not just that our diets consist so much of sugar and simple carbs, it's that we eat less fiber at the same time. I've cut back on simple carbs and added more veggies and whole fruits including that apple a day, but I'm considering carrying around psyllium husk capsules and taking one before deciding to have a slice of cheesecake. (You can buy cinnamon capsules as well)

Excercise also helps control insulin levels or insulin resistence. I don't recall how, but know it does. I recently read that their now thinking diabetes is being caused by the sedentary lifestyles more so than the diet and obesity.
