Health Benefits of Cinnamon.

 

Cinnamon is a spice that comes from the branches of wild trees that belong to the genus "Cinnamomum" - native to the Caribbean, South America, and Southeast Asia.

 

There are two main types of cinnamon:

 

  • Cinnamomum verum (Ceylon cinnamon), most commonly used in the Western world

  • Cinnamomum aromaticum (Chinese cinnamon), which originates from southern China regions, is typically less expensive than Ceylon cinnamon.

 

 

Better Heart Health

 

In a recent study from Penn State, researchers found that a diet rich in spices, like cinnamon and turmeric,  reduced triglycerides by about 30%. After a high-fat meal, levels of fats in your blood known as triglycerides rise, and chronically high triglycerides raise the risk of heart disease. Blood samples drawn after meals also revealed 13% higher blood antioxidant levels. 

 

Blood Sugar Regulation

 

Cinnamon may lower blood sugar in people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, according to Diabetes UK. However high quality research supporting the claim remains scarce.

 

Fungal Infections

 

According to the National Institutes of Health, cinnamaldehyde - a chemical found in Cassia cinnamon - can help fight against bacterial and fungal infections.
