Health Benefits of Cinnamon
WHAT IS CINNAMON
Cinnamon is a very delicious spice that is used in the majority of today's households. It has been prized for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. Modern science has now confirmed what people have known for ages. We use Ceylon Cinnamon in a variety of our products including our Detox Tea, General Wellness Tea, and our Elderberry Syrup kit because it is a universal spice, and here are some of its beneficial qualities.
CAN CINNAMON HELP WITH INFLAMMATION?
Inflammation can be excruciating but it also can be helpful. It helps your body fight infections and repair tissue damage. However, inflammation can become a problem when it’s chronic and directed against your body's own tissues. Cinnamon may be useful in this regard. Studies show that this spice and its antioxidants have potent anti-inflammatory properties.
CINNAMON IS HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS
Cinnamon contains at least 41 different antioxidants, which is high above the number in most other foods. Antioxidants are important because they decrease free radicals that can damage your cells and slow the aging process, which means fewer wrinkles and pesky gray hairs.
