Does Cinnamon Have Any Health Benefits?

List: Posted: 03/18/11

If you are trying to get away from synthetic vitamins and medicines, but not impact your health and wellness, there are numerous natural remedies out there for you.  One of the best options you will find is cinnamon.  How can cinnamon help you improve your health?

 

Fist, you will find that cinnamon can help you lower your cholesterol level.  It affects the levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol in your body.  This helps prevent the onset of heart disease and keeps your arteries healthy, as well.

 

Another benefit of consuming cinnamon is that it can help regulate your blood sugar.  This is important for those with diabetes, as well as those at risk of developing diabetes.  It has also been shown to help alleviate yeast infections that cannot be treated medically.

 

For those worried about stroke due to blood clot formation within the body, cinnamon has been shown to have an anti-clotting effect on the blood, though not enough to stop the formation of clots at the point of cuts (a problem with medication that does a similar job).  You will also discover that cinnamon has antibacterial properties, which has ramifications for your entire body, from your digestive system to infections.

 

Finally, some scientists believe that consuming and even smelling cinnamon can give your memory and brain functions a boost, though this has not been studied in-depth as of yet.

As you can see, there are some pretty significant reasons that you should be taking cinnamon for better health.
