The Healing Effects of Cinnamon

Who would have thought that this culinary spice possesses numerous profound healing properties?

Taking one-quarter to one-half teaspoon of cinnamon works just as well as the statin drugs in lowering cholesterol and triglycerides as well as blood glucose.

Ground cinnamon helps stimulate the production of glucose-burning enzymes and boosts insulin’s effectiveness.

According to research conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, cinnamon helps to control blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics.

In one study, cinnamon made insulin 20 times more capable of breaking down blood sugars.

To benefit from type 2 diabetes, you will need to eat about ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon per day.

According to other research, diabetics also benefit from ground fenugreek, turmeric, ginger, bitter melon extract, bilberry extract, and Gymnema sylvestre extract.

Cinnamon has also been shown to lower triglycerides and cholesterol levels, and to prevent and improve heart disease.

More recent research shows that cinnamon does more than just ward off diabetes and heart disease.

But it also;

  • Supports digestive function
  • Constricts and tones tissues
  • Relieves congestion
  • Alleviates pain, inflammation, and stiffness of muscles and joints
  • Eases menstrual discomfort
  • Stimulates circulation
  • Kills bacteria, including E. coli.

Cinnamon also makes you smarter.

In a study testing cognitive abilities, participants were given cinnamon, both orally and nasally.

The study concluded that cinnamon is effective in enhancing cognitive functions.

Cinnamon also reportedly scores high as an aphrodisiac for males.

So, whether you use cinnamon to improve your health, your mental capacity, your love life, or all of the above, it makes good sense to include cinnamon in your diet whenever possible.

You may add it to your cereals, vegetables, or favourite beverage, such as herbal tea.

Scientists have also discovered that curry powder (mainly turmeric, cumin, cardamom, coriander, ginger, red pepper, fenugreek, and fennel) with cinnamon, bay leaves and cloves triples the effectiveness of insulin.

What a delicious way to help with diabetes and numerous other disorders.
