Like many people, I use cinnamon generously during the holidays. And like many spices, I wondered if cinnamon too had significant healthy benefits apart from elevating the taste of some of my favorite foods. As it turns out, cinnamon has many positive health benefits, as I found below.

GO WITH YOUR GUT

Cinnamon contains antioxidants which protect the body from disease, such as those found in fruits and veggies. It also contains prebiotics, which promote a healthy gut. A great way to gain these benefits is to drink cinnamon tea.

PROTECT AGAINST HIGH BLOOD SUGAR

If taken daily, cinnamon may help protect against high blood sugar, in patients with type 2 diabetes or those who are pre-diabetic. Maintaining control of blood sugar prevents other more serious illnesses, such as kidney disease and vision problems. Please consult with your healthcare provider first before making any changes to your diet or regimen.

REDUCES THE PAIN OF MENSTRUAL CRAMPS

Do you have painful cramps during your period? According to this article, less than a quarter of a teaspoon of cinnamon may help to reduce pain and cramps during that time of the month.

GLOW FROM THE INSIDE OUT

As mentioned above, cinnamon contains antioxidants, which also fight the effects of aging. Skin glows with heightened blood flow and increased cell turnover.


What’s your favorite way to use cinnamon?
