Cinnamon

Top 10 Superfoods


Cinnamon curbs high blood sugar as well as alleviates the symptoms of arthritis

Sweeten up Your Diet with Cinnamon

Used in dishes from Indian curry to all-American apple pie, the once rare bark of the cinnamon tree is now ubiquitous. As this sweetly scented spice helps balance blood sugar, it can be beneficial to prevent diabetes (or: it can be a beneficial addition to the diets of diabetics). Moreover, cinnamon's anti-inflammatory properties can alleviate the symptoms of arthritis. Among its many other uses, cinnamon also inhibits the growth of food borne bacteria, thereby not only acting as a food preservative, but aiding digestion and preventing some stomach ulcers as well.
