Learn more.. 7 amazing health benefits of cinnamon

Cinnamon is a type of “super spice” rich in antioxidants. Research shows it has 7 scientifically proven benefits of cinnamon:

Lower blood sugar

Cinnamon is known for its blood sugar-lowering properties, as it may reduce the amount of sugar that enters the bloodstream after a meal by slowing the breakdown of carbohydrates in the digestive tract, according to a study published in 2020. A study published in 2022 indicates that cinnamon has beneficial effects for people with type 2 diabetes, as it can mimic the effects of insulin to improve glucose uptake into cells. High blood sugar – so-called high blood sugar – can affect people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well as pregnant women with gestational diabetes, according to NHS guidelines.

Protects against heart disease

Cinnamon consumption has been associated with a lower risk of heart disease, as research shows that 3/4 teaspoon taken daily was able to lower harmful cholesterol levels in the blood. Cinnamon has also been shown to reduce blood pressure when taken continuously for at least 8 weeks. According to the British Heart Foundation.

Slow down Alzheimer’s disease

Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease are characterized by a progressive loss of nerve cell structure or function. Certain compounds in cinnamon showed promising signs of inhibiting the buildup in the brain of a protein called tau, which is one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a 2017 study.

Slow cancer growth

Medical studies have reported that cinnamon extracts reduce the growth of cancer cells and the formation of blood vessels in tumors. Animal studies have shown that this effect appears to be toxic to cancer cells, causing cell death, but more research is needed to assess the potential anti-cancer effects of cinnamon in humans.

Bacterial and fungal infections

Laboratory studies conducted last year suggest that cinnamon oil may help kill certain fungi that cause respiratory infections. It may also inhibit the growth of certain bacteria such as listeria and salmonella, and an additional test study has shown that the spice may also help prevent tooth decay. Dentists have said that gum disease can lead to a host of life-threatening conditions affecting the heart, brain and lungs.

Protection against certain viruses

Some research suggests that cinnamon may help protect against certain viruses, such as influenza and dengue fever, a mosquito-borne viral infection.
