6 Reasons Why Cinnamon Is A Hero
Cinnamon is a highly aromatic and naturally sweet spice. It has been prized for its medicinal properties for thousands of years and still is to this day. Modern science has now confirmed through studies what people have instinctively known for ages.

Cinnamon, what you need to know

What you may not know is that there are in fact two main types:
Ceylon – Also known as “true” cinnamon.
Cassia – This is the common variety seen today.

The spice is produced by cutting the stems of the ‘cinnamomum’ tree. The inner bark is then extracted and the hard woody parts removed from it. Once dry, it forms strips which curl into rolls and form sticks. The sticks are used as they are, or alternatively can be ground to form a powder.

 

 

Here are 6 health benefits of cinnamon:

1 – High source of anti-oxidants
3 – Protects the heart
4 – Helps to fight diabetes
5 – Fights infections & viruses
6 – Helps in preventing Candida
Add a little to your favourite dishes or even into that cosy cup of cocoa and feel the benefits of this warm and indulgent spice.

 

When treating health issues, DO NOT self diagnose but get professional assistance in regards to nutrition and nutraceuticals.
