Cinnamon, a popular spice, has a surprising number of health benefits as well!
Loaded with powerful antioxidants like polyphenols (and coming out as the clear winner among 26 spices, including garlic and oregano). In fact, according to the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH), cinnamon has such strong antioxidant properties it can act as a natural food preservative. The antioxidants in cinnamon have potent anti-inflammatory capabilities, which may lower the risk of disease.
Cinnamon helps manage blood sugar and stave off diabetes. Many people have a resistance to insulin, a key hormone regulating metabolism and energy use, and essential for the transport of blood sugar to your body’s cells. The spice can dramatically reduce “insulin resistance,” a hallmark of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, as well as lower blood sugar through a number of additional mechanisms. Numerous trials show cinnamon can lower fasting blood sugar levels by as much as 29%. Cinnamon decreases the amount of glucose entering the bloodstream after a meal, slows the breakdown of carbohydrates in the digestive tract, and mimics insulin in cells at a slower rate, providing a smoother blood sugar uptake.
Early studies show cinnamon may have beneficial effects on neurodegenerative diseases (like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s), may protect against cancer, and may even fight HIV.
