10 Health Benefits of Cinnamon

Nature has bestowed countless things upon man to get benefitted. The more they stick to the natural ingredients the more you stay away off the health and physical risks. Man has discovered so many remedies and has discovered so many chemical based ingredients to cure many of the dangerous diseases. But the chemicals and other in organic products and ingredients definitely leave adverse effects to some extent if not completely.

In old times the story was a bit different, man was more into organic and natural products than that of inorganic one. In old times cinnamon was more valuable than gold. Most of the people are not much aware of the health benefits cinnamon incorporates but those know try to include cinnamon in their diet plan to avail maximum benefits.

The potential health benefits attributable to cinnamon could be astonishing for many, since majority of people are not aware of this gem in spices.

Chinese medicine and Ayurveda have long disclosed cinnamon as a pack of energy and power and it has long been used in treating cold, cough, indigestion and pain. In addition to that it helps improve energy,

a superpower used to treat things such as colds, indigestion and cramps and also believed to improve energy, vitality and circulation. The following are ten health benefits associated with this beloved spice that studies have suggested:

  1. 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower your bad cholesterol (or LDL).
  2. Cinnamon may help treat Type 2 Diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels and increasing the amount of insulin production in the body.
  3. Cinnamon has antifungal properties as well.
  4. Cinnamon can reduce the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.
  5. Cinnamon has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.
  6. Honey and Cinnamon combined has been found to relieve arthritis pain.
  7. When added to food, cinnamon help cease bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.

  10. Cinnamon can also help stabilize blood sugar (which is great for weight loss). A couple of dashes in your morning tea or cereal are all it takes!

Now, this said, we are absolutely not advocating you start guzzling the cinnamon since it has been found to be toxic in large doses. However, wholeheartedly encouraging a little pinch (or stick) here and there in places you might otherwise have overlooked (in your tea or coffee, added to savory dishes, etc.)  if not for your overall health, for its undeniably enchanting aroma and flavor.
