I’m always on the hunt for creative ways to eat healthier and to eat more naturally. I was poking around recently for more information about cinnamon as I heard it had healthy benefits and can really help some aliments that individuals deal with. Well, at www.health diaries.com I found some of the following information:
Studies have shown that just ½ teaspoon of cinnamon per day can lower LDL cholesterol.
It has also been found that smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive function and memory.
Get this….a study at Copenhagen University, patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week and could walk without pain within one month.
The amazing benefits of cinnamon go on and on - who knew!!
Try some cinnamon sprinkled on a banana, in your applesauce, on your oatmeal, or my favorite - cinnamon roll flavored yogurt. It is delicious.
