Cinnamon is high in antioxidants which reduce the damage caused by free radicals and slow the aging process. These antioxidants can also help to relieve inflammation which can lower the risk of heart disease and cognitive decline among other things. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, cinnamon has been proven to be a wonderful natural pain reliever, especially for muscle pain.
One of the biggest benefits of Cinnamon is its ability to improve heart health. It can lower cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high triglyceride levels. The reduction in high blood pressure is particularly noteworthy as this can greatly decrease your chances of heart disease or a stroke.
Cinnamon can help to increase circulation, which improves tissue repair and aids the body’s natural healing process. Studies have shown that cinnamon can also help to stop excessive bleeding by helping the body to coagulate blood and form blood clots.
Did you know that cinnamon is considered one of the best foods for diabetics? It naturally lowers blood sugar levels while also improving the body’s ability to use the hormone insulin. It can also help to block digestive enzymes which can cause the rapid absorption of sugar into the bloodstream meaning a spike in blood sugar levels, something that no diabetic wants. Cinnamon also sweetens food which is a bonus if you have diabetes and can’t eat sugar.
Cinnamon has natural antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral and antimicrobial properties, all of which are extremely helpful in fighting off illness and boosting the immune system.
Cinnamon oil can protect against bacterial infections and can be very useful in fighting off colds. These above-mentioned properties can also help to naturally preserve food (the ancient Romans were onto a good thing) so that you don’t need to use chemically produced preservatives.
Cinnamon can give you Energy
Cinnamon gives you a natural energy boost. It curbs sugar cravings, which means that instead of having an instant sugar high, you will have more consistent and sustained energy levels. It also increases your circulation, which can help to increase the speed of your metabolism which should help to give you an energy boost.
Next time you need a little energy boost, add a little cinnamon to your coffee. The cinnamon works to keep your blood sugar levels stable while preventing a sugar high followed by a crash and the caffeine gives you an instant perk.
Can You Eat Too Much Cinnamon?
Yes, actually you can! It depends on what form of cinnamon you are eating. As mentioned earlier, there are two main sources of cinnamon. There is Ceylon Cinnamon which is considered “True” cinnamon and there is Cassia cinnamon. While both forms are safe to eat in moderate amounts, eating large quantities of cassia can cause serious health problems. Cassia contains a much higher concentration of the compound coumarin than Ceylon cinnamon. Coumarin can cause harm to your liver and can increase your chances of cancer.
Be particularly careful when using cinnamon if you are taking medication that might affect your liver, such as paracetamol. Excessive intake of cinnamon mixed with certain drugs may increase the chances of liver toxicity and damage. As mentioned earlier, cinnamon can also affect your blood sugar levels. So while it may help some people with diabetes, always clear this with your doctor first because mixed with diabetes medication you could cause your blood sugar to drop too low.
