Health is important to basically everyone, that’s why we eat our fruits and veggies and drink our water. But did you know that spices can have great health benefits and all you need to do is add them into the meals you are already eating. Cinnamon is one of the best spices that you should be eating almost daily.
Scientist have been doing a lot of research on the health benefits of cinnamon and have already determined that it helps prevent blood-sugar spikes and protect against insulin resistance, which is great for people with diabetes. A study in 2012 showed that people with type 2 diabetes who took a daily cinnamon supplement had a reduction in blood sugar. Some who stopped taking the supplement still showed lasting effects as well.
Research has also found that people who ate 1 gram a day of cinnamon saw blood sugar reductions and even people who cook and use cinnamon as a seasoning can see these benefits.
Scientist are now diving deeper into what health benefits cinnamon can have on the body, including fat cells, muscles, and liver cells.
You can add cinnamon to many different foods, including oatmeal. toast, butternut squash, and chili. Try out recipes you like with the added cinnamon and reap the benefits!
