Cinnamon has more uses than aromatically and flavor-fully transforming a dish or perfuming your house. Studies have shown multitudes of health benefits of the spice since 2000BC! Cinnamon, as a warm and dry substance, was believed by doctors in ancient times to cure snakebites, the common cold, and kidney troubles, among other ailments.
Lately, many diet regimes have promoted the affects of cinnamon on slimming fats. Unfortunately many don’t know how powerful the spice can actually be when injected orally by the mouthful. The “Cinnamon Challenge” should be shunned – such a revolting way to treat the body.
Now onto the benefits of such a popular household ingredient:
- Treats infections
- Regulates blood sugar
- Mood and energy regulator
- Reduces LDL cholesterol levels
- Reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease
- Reduces pain linked to arthritis
- Contains fiber, calcium, iron, and manganese
CAUTION: Consuming cinnamon in excess can cause nausea, vomiting, redness of the face and lip swelling, and burning in the lungs and chest, if inhaled.
