Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to mankind.It has been mentioned in the Bible numerous times, and at one point in their history, the ancient Egyptians placed a higher value on this humble spice than pure gold! The sweet, earthy aroma and apparent health benefits of Cinnamon made it a very popular commodity world-wide.An ancient Chinese book of botanicals, estimated to have been written about 2,700 Y.B.C., praises Cinnamon and it’s helpful effects on the human body.
In modern times Cinnamon is still widely used in baking and to add a warm zest to teas, soups, and main course dishes, however its popularity has somewhat diminished; its current value is considerably less than its weight in gold.Various constituents in Cinnamon have been found to help boost immune function, in addition to promoting healthy blood cells, platelets, and blood sugar levels.Cinnamon helps cleanse the bloodstream and contains a natural anti-clotting factor, and may prove to be useful to help prevent a stroke.Studies have proved that Cinnamon also possesses anti-microbial chemicals and helps protect the body against invasive bacteria, viruses, and yeast.Still other studies have revealed that Cinnamon helps reduce the dreaded blood sugar spike following the consumption of food.Many believe people with type II diabetes can benefit from supplementing a little Cinnamon into their diets, as it has been found to improve the body’s response to insulin.
