Cinnamon has a long history of being used to treat things such as colds, indigestion and cramps and is also believed to improve energy, vitality and circulation. The following is a list of health benefits associated with this spice that studies have suggested:

  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower your bad cholesterol (or LDL).
  • Cinnamon may help treat Type 2 Diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels and increasing the amount of insulin production in the body.
  • Cinnamon has antifungal properties, and it’s been said that candida cannot live in a cinnamon environment. 
  • Cinnamon can reduce the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.
  • Cinnamon has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.
  • Honey and Cinnamon combined has been found to relieve arthritis pain.
  • When added to food, cinnamon inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.
  • Just smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.
  • Cinnamon fights the E. coli bacteria in unpasteurized juices.
  • Cinnamon has been found to be an effective natural remedy for eliminating headaches and migraine relief.
  • Cinnamon can also help stablize blood sugar (which is great for weight loss). A couple of dashes in your morning tea or cereal is all it takes!
  • Lots of potential benefits but be careful not to overdo it as it has been found to be toxic in large doses! Cinnamon works best in sweet recipes such as rice and apple-based puddings but may also be added to tea or try Yogi Organic Choco Tea which contains lots of health-boosting spices including cinnamon. Yogi Tea and Organic Cinnamon are available from health shops.
