What are the healing properties of cinnamon?

Cinnamon has been called a “super spice,” that is because of its incredible health benefits. Cinnamon has been scientifically studied for decades and proven to be quite powerful. Anyone with diabetes or pre-diabetes should be taking cinnamon daily. It has been shown to help prevent diabetes because it naturally lowers blood sugar levels. It is also believed to help the body be more effective at using insulin which is the hormone vital to balancing blood sugar levels.

Cinnamon has other healing properties too. It is an antioxidant, helps in cancer prevention, lipid fat lowering, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and supports healthy heart health, among other things!  

Currently, it is being studied to see its effect on the brain. Cinnamon is believed by many to help people with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer's. Exciting right?
