Are you a fan of sprinkling cinnamon on your toast and into your morning coffee? Do you dip apple slices into cinnamon? Do you stir cinnamon sticks into your holiday cider? Not only is cinnamon a favorite flavor for many, but the spice is also packed with health benefits! In fact, the bark of the cinnamon tree has been traditionally used for medicinal purposes for many, many years all around the globe. Let’s take a look at how cinnamon can boost your health.
For the best results, try either Ceylon cinnamon or cassia cinnamon—or a combination of the two types. How do you use cinnamon in your kitchen?
Many researchers have discovered that cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar, which stabilizes energy and can help improve the health of diabetics.
Cinnamon contains antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral properties to help boost your immune system and fight off infection, which may come in handy during cold and flu season.
The spice has been studied for its ability to help reduce inflammation.
Apart from inflammation, cinnamon is also known to help alleviate pain linked to arthritis by reducing the cytokines associated with the condition.
Cinnamon also helps reduce LDL cholesterol, which is the harmful type that is linked with poor heart and vascular health.
A naturally occurring chemical found in cinnamon called cinnamaldehyde increases progesterone and decreases testosterone production in women. Some researchers believe that this aid in hormone balance may assist with infertility.
