Cinnamon can make you younger and healthier! Cinnamon is emerging as the darling of the spice world thanks to its immune-boosting protection and anti-aging benefits. Eating cinnamon regularly will certainly awaken the fountain of youth within. And who knew that it is also a natural appetite suppressant?
The herb, owing to its vast medicinal uses, had found a prominent position in traditional medicines, especially Ayurvedic (the traditional Indian medicinal system). Traditionally cinnamon, due to its medicinal properties, has been used in many cultures for treating a variety of health disorders including diarrhea, arthritis, menstrual cramps, yeast infections, colds, flu, and digestive problems. Cinnamon helps in removing blood impurities. Therefore, it is often recommended in some parts of the world for acne.
Cinnamon aids in the circulation of blood due to the presence of a blood thinning compound in it. This blood circulation helps significantly in removing pain. Good blood circulation also ensures oxygen supply to the body cells leading to higher metabolic activity. Due to its anti-fungal, antibacterial, antiviral and antiseptic properties, it is effective on external as well as internal infections. These properties also help it to fight free radicals which can destroy cells, metabolic processes and the endocrine (hormone) system. Cinnamon also helps destroy germs in the gall bladder and bacteria in staph infections. On top of all those wonders, the spice is also an anti-inflammatory and recommended for arthritis. The reduction of inflammation within the body is one of the best ways to reduce aging as well as sickness.
I put cinnamon in my baby’s milk bottle three times a week and in her apple purees.
A tantalizing side-benefit of cinnamon is the oil. Cinnamon oil is known for attracting men. Savvy seductresses dab a dash on their throat and cheekbones before going out. Smell like pie and men will want to eat you! (I really wanted to say something funnier but it is a little vulgar!)
