I love cinnamon.
I put it in all of my breakfast treats -oatmeal, cereal, milk, toast, yogurt, coffee, fruit, etc.
You should do the same, because it's so good for you!
Studies show that adding half of a teaspoon of cinnamon to your daily diet can lower LDL.
LDLs are Low-Density Lipoproteins, or as I've always been taught, the "Least-Desirable Lipoproteins."
Here are some other things that cinnamon will do for your body:
- Regulates blood sugar
- Has an anti-clotting affect on the blood
- A great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.
- Has the ability to stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites in the body
- Its scent boosts brain function
- Improves colon health
- Protects against heart disease
- Reduces proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells
- It's proven to fight bad breath
- Home remedy to cure the common cold/respiratory problems
- Provides relief from menstrual cramping
- Reduces arthritis pain
- Effective for helping nausea, heart burn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea (Yay, Pepto-Bismol! ..couldn't help but think of that song/commercial)
- Natural food preserver
- Muscle and joint pain reliever
With all of these health benefits, why on Earth not add cinnamon to your diet?
I use McCormick's Cinnamon Grinder
By turning the lid, it grinds the flakes of cinnamon into teeny pieces.
It gives my foods the freshest cinnamon flavor and aroma!
