Five Incredible Cinnamon Extract Health Benefits (That Are Backed by Science!)
From Egyptian embalming rituals to Medieval throat remedies, since ancient times, cinnamon has been revered for its profound health benefits in cultures around the world. Thankfully today, modern science is now able to back up what these wise ancients knew all along about this delicious spice; that cinnamon is one of our best allies when it comes to healing and supporting all-round wellbeing. Here we explore the many scientifically proven ways that cinnamon extract can boost your health.
Cinnamon May Reduce Your Risk of Heart Disease
Heart disease is trigged by a build-up of fatty plaque in the arteries, and risk factors include high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. Cinnamon has been proven to reduce the risk of heart disease. In a study of people with type 2 diabetes, after taking 1g of cinnamon per day, it was shown to improve glucose and lipids, keeping healthy sugar levels. While in animals, it’s proven to lower blood pressure. Adding about half a teaspoon of Ceylon cinnamon a day to your diet will support healthy cholesterol levels.
Cinnamon is a Superstar Antioxidant
Much fanfare is given to the likes of green tea, garlic, turmeric and oregano when it comes to their antioxidant properties. But, a study revealed that cinnamon actually outranks all of them along with 26 other spices in terms of antioxidant potency. Antioxidants like polyphenols in cinnamon are vital in protecting our cells against free radicals that can play a role in illnesses like heart disease and cancer. By adding cinnamon extract to your diet you’ll be supporting heart health and protecting your overall immune system.
Cinnamon Fights Day-to-Day Ailments
Just what can’t cinnamon extract do? It can certainly help fight infections and everyday illnesses. Containing antiviral, antifungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, cinnamon is a warrior when it comes to warding off the common cold and sore throats. The active component is called cinnamaldehyde, and this is responsible for fighting infections and inhibiting the growth of bacteria. Quite impressively, cinnamon extracted from Cassia was shown to be the most effective plant treatment for treating the HIV-1 strain in humans.
Cinnamon is Bursting with Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Whether you suffer from arthritis or chronic fatigue, cinnamon can fan those flames of inflammation. Excessive or chronic inflammation can lead to all manner of health conditions, including aches and joint pain, rashes and poor digestive function. One study showed that cinnamon extract’s anti-inflammatory properties are useful in treating age-related inflammatory conditions.
