    Health benefits of Cinnamon

    What is Cinnamon?


    Cinnamon is a small tree that grows in India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Brazil, Vietnam, and Egypt.


    It's one of the oldest known spices. To prepare it, the bark of the cinnamon tree is dried and rolled into cinnamon sticks, also called quills. Cinnamon can also be dried and ground into a powder.


    The characteristic flavor and aroma of cinnamon comes from a compound in the essential oil of the bark called cinnamonaldehyde.


    Although there are four main varieties of cinnamon, Ceylon cinnamon and Cassia cinnamon are the most popular.


    Ceylon cinnamon is sometimes called true cinnamon. It is more expensive and has a sweet taste. The quills are softer and can be easily ground in a coffee grinder. Ceylon cinnamon is sold in specialty stores.


    Most cinnamon sold in supermarkets in North America comes from the less expensive variety, Cassia cinnamon. It has a darker color and the quills are harder. Unlike Ceylon cinnamon, it can't be easily ground into a powder using a coffee grinder.

    Benefits of Cinnamon

    • lower LDL cholesterol ( the bad cholesterol ), total cholesterol, and triglycerides.


    • have a regulatory effect on blood sugar levels, making it particularly helpful for people that suffer from type 2 diabetes.


    • have an anti-clotting effect on the blood.


    • inhibit bacterial growth and food spoilage when added to food, making it a natural food preservative.


    • boost cognitive function and memory when smelt.


    • a source of manganese, fibre, iron, and calcium.


    • the combination of calcium and fibre in cinnamon can help to remove bile, which prevents damage to colon, which helps prevent colon cancer.


    • stop the growth of bacteria and fungi (such as the common yeast, Candida)
    However you must ensure that you buy real Cinnamon and not Cassia a substitute for real Cinnamon. The Cinnamon sold in the USA and Canada is mostly Casssia.

    What is the Scientific Evidence for Cinnamon's Health Benefits?


    Recent studies have found that cinnamon may have a beneficial effect on blood sugar.


    One of the first human studies was published in 2003 in a medical journal called Diabetes Care. Sixty people with type 2 diabetes took 1, 3, or 6 grams of cinnamon in pill form daily, an amount roughly equivalent to one quarter of a teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.


    After 40 days, all 3 amounts of cinnamon reduced fasting blood glucose by 18 to 29%, triglycerides by 23 to 30%, LDL cholesterol by 7 to 27%, and total cholesterol by 12 to 26%.
