The benefits of cinnamon

All spices have great health properties, and cinnamon is no exception to this. Did you know that just a quarter of a teaspoon of cinnamon a day can lower your blood sugar? Put it on some fruit, on a sweet potato or in a glass of warm milk for a delicious and healthy way to help control your sugar levels.

Cinnamon is also anti-bacterial and an anti-inflammatory, helps relieve congestion when you have a cold or the flu, aids the digestive system, protects the teeth and prevents infections (particularly those of the urinary tract).

Just one thing, though- make sure you get real cinnamon. Here’s a helpful webpage to help you tell the difference: http://www.ceylon-cinnamon.com/Identify-Cinnamon.htm
