The Health Benefits of Cinnamon: Why You Need to Sprinkle This Spice on Everything

Cinnamon tastes amazing, but did you know it also has health benefits? Here are a few:

  • The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has found that cinnamon may enhance insulin activity, increasing the metabolism of fat and helping to lower blood sugar.
  • It may have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, helping fight the fungus that leads to yeast infections and the bacteria that causes stomach ulcers.
  • As an anti-inflammatory food, cinnamon may support healthy blood flow.
  • Its scent has been reported to actually boost brain health, especially in terms of memory and attention.
  • Perfect for winter, cinnamon’s warming properties can relieve symptoms of cold and flu. 

Sprinkle and enjoy!
