The Health Benefits of Cinammon

Benefits of cinammon in your diet

Did you know cinammon is good for you in many ways.  It has been found that cinammon benefits the body in so many good ways.  

Cinammon is good for Type 2 Diabetes in that it helps lower the sugar count in the blood stream.  Taking cinammon tablets daily heightens the effect.  Cinnamon also reduces the proliferation of cancer cells. 

The other benefits include but are not limited to:

Lowers the LDL cholesterol count in your blood.

Possibly helps reduce heavy menstruation.

Used with a teaspoon of honey daily may reduce the pain caused by arthritis.

Cinammon is a natural food preservative.

Has an anti-clotting effect in the blood.

Also did you know that cinammon comes from a tree and it is the bark that is used as the spice? Or did you know that cinammon is mentioned in Chinese writing as far back as 2800 BC?  Cinammon was also used in the embalming process in Ancient Egypt.  It also is suppose to help our memories just by sniffing it.

As I said, it's not just for breakfast rolls!

Interesting that it has anti-clotting element in the blood! I might not feel so guilty eating it.
