Cinnamon is widely regarded as a natural way of lowering cholesterol levels, although very few herbalists actually use it for this purpose. A small clinical study supported the belief in cinnamon as a cholesterol lowerer, but a further study did not achieve the same results and the available evidence is therefore conflicting. Source:
