Cinnamon, Blood, and Inflammation Reduction

A natural way to improve your digestive power with cinnamon


In early civilization, cinnamon was used to treat everything from athlete's foot to indigestion. The cinnamon herb is obtained from the bark of its evergreen tree that originated from Sri Lanka. The herb has many benefits across all cultures, and researchers are still studying more of its uses in laboratories. Cinnamon aids the digestive system in different ways such as soothing the stomach, increasing metabolism, increasing appetite, and relieving gas.

What's Your Reaction?


Cinnamon is one of those sweet and simple things in life that we can say “yes” to and receive lots of benefits. As with so many things today, the cheap stuff in the store might not measure up, though.

It’s not only easy, but also important to get high quality cinnamon.

Dangers of high blood sugar can be alleviated with cinnamon, chromium and bitter melon


Blood sugar causes degenerative disease. Not only diabetes is a concern, but also high blood sugar affects the eyes, kidneys, brain, the heart, and also speeds the aging process. Sugar creates inflammation in the body, and burns the cells by inflammatory oxidation. This inflammatory process is called glycation. It damages the organs, blood vessel and cells. Excess sugar in the blood can make a person feel tired and fatigued and turn into fat. This causes weight gain and fat deposits in the stomach area. To reduce blood sugar, first stop eating any refined sugar or white sugar. Read packaging for hidden sugars in processed foods such as corn sweeteners.
