Not Just for Apple Strudel

Cinnamon is a common household spice, a warm nostalgic spice that conjures up images of autumn colors and apple orchards. Cinnamon can be used to help with many common health issues women face, especially during pregnancy and as they mature.

Cinnamon is commonly used by diabetics to stabilize blood sugar.

Cinnamon is a natural diuretic, meaning that it helps flush toxins out of the body.

It is an antioxidant that fights free radicals in the body, keeping infection at bay.

Help for New Mothers

As any mother can attest to, the body's digestive system undergoes a lot of stress during pregnancy and delivery. Things you used to eat with no problem suddenly sound terrible, you have cravings for very specific things, and there is a whole lot more air in the system, if you know what I mean. Women don't like to talk about it, but being pregnant can make a woman a world-class gas machine, one that would rival any frat-house.

One should always consult a doctor before starting any dietary supplements or changes, particularly during pregnancy and if nursing.

Women also don't like to talk about how long it can take for them to get back to being "regular" after having a baby. This is personal stuff, and many women are embarrassed by things that happen in the bathroom. But it is common for the entire system to sloooow doooown.

Cinnamon can alleviate all these ailments.

One heaping teaspoon added to your portion of a homemade smoothie may be all the cinnamon you need to help get things moving along for the day.

For an upset stomach or morning sickness, try a teaspoon of cinnamon dissolved in boiling water with some honey. And hang in there - most morning sickness abates after the first trimester.

Get Rid of What Ails You

This common, inexpensive household spice is also known for it's germ fighting power.

Many cultures use cinnamon to ward off colds and as a treatment for allergies.

It is one of the main ingredients in many detox teas. These teas are used to rid the body of a build-up of toxins, whether they be a surplus of sugar, alcohol, or free radicals from the environment. Cinnamon has a natural ability to collect these toxins and usher them out of the system.

Type-2 diabetics frequently use one teaspoon of cinnamon per day to help stabilize blood sugar, and even those without diabetes can use it to aid in curbing sugar cravings. It is also used to combat high cholesterol.

The Spice That Keeps on Giving

Economical, convenient, and multi-purposed, cinnamon is a great way to boost your health in an easy way. Added to smoothies, tea or taken as a encapsulated form, cinnamon can be an easy way to improve your health in many ways. Try it yourself and see what results you get!
