Cinnamon

Cinnamon is one of those herbs that have special healing powers not only in ancient Indian Ayurvedic treatment modalities but also in ancient Chinese, Greek healing methods. Cinnamon reminds us of Christmases past with its tantalizing scent that is so earthy and cozy. One cannot help to cuddle up with a mug of spiced apple cider with a real cinnamon stick inside on a cold winter’s night.  It conjures up great memories and is often used in many modern cooking recipes, and cocktail mixologists use cinnamon frequently when crafting their signature cocktails that will be ordered over and over again into the wee morning hours by party goers and drink connoisseurs alike.

Cinnamon has been used as an ingredient throughout history, dating back as far as Ancient Egypt. It used to be rare and valuable and was regarded as a gift fit for kings. These days, cinnamon is cheap, available in every supermarket and found as an ingredient in various foods and recipes. Cinnamon is made by cutting the stems of cinnamon trees. The inner bark is then extracted and the woody parts removed. When it dries, it forms strips that curl into rolls, called cinnamon sticks. These sticks can be ground to form cinnamon powder.

There are two main types of cinnamon:

Ceylon cinnamon: Also known as “true” cinnamon.

Cassia cinnamon: The more common variety today and what people generally refer to as “cinnamon.”

It Is Better to Use Ceylon (True Cinnamon)

Not all cinnamon is created equal. The Cassia variety contains significant amounts of a compound called Coumarin, which is believed to be harmful in large doses. All cinnamon should have health benefits, but Cassia may cause problems in large doses due to the Coumarin content. Ceylon (true cinnamon) is much better in this regard, and studies show that it’s much lower in Coumarin than the Cassia variety. Unfortunately, most cinnamon found in supermarkets is the cheaper Cassia variety.

The distinct smell and flavour of cinnamon are due to the oily part, which is very high in the compound Cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde is more seen in Ceylon Cinnamon than Cassia Cinnamon. Scientists believe that this compound is responsible for most of cinnamon’s powerful effects on health and metabolism.

Cinnamon Is Loaded With Antioxidants

Antioxidants protect your body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Cinnamon is loaded with powerful antioxidants, Poly-phenols. In a study that compared the antioxidant activity of 26 spices, cinnamon wound up as the clear winner, even outranking “superfoods” like garlic and oregano. In fact, it is so powerful that cinnamon can be used as a natural food preservative.

Cinnamon Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Inflammation is incredibly important. It helps your body fight infections and repair tissue damage. However, inflammation can become a problem when it’s chronic and directed against your body’s own tissues. Cinnamon may be useful in this regard. Studies show that this spice has potent anti-inflammatory properties. Cinnamons have anti-inflammatory effects, which may help lower your risk of disease.

Cinnamon May Cut the Risk of Heart Disease

Cinnamon has been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease, the world’s most common cause of premature death. In people with type 2 diabetes, 1 gram or about half a teaspoon of cinnamon per day has been shown to have beneficial effects on blood markers. Cinnamon reduces levels of total cholesterol, “bad” LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, while “good” HDL cholesterol remains stable. More recently, a big review study concluded that a cinnamon dose of just 1000 mg per day can have these effects. In this study, cinnamon also increased “good” HDL cholesterol levels. Cinnamon has been shown to reduce blood pressure. When combined, all these factors may drastically cut your risk of heart disease. Cinnamon may improve some key risk factors for heart disease, including cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure.

Cinnamon Can Improve Sensitivity to the Hormone Insulin

Insulin is one of the key hormones that regulate metabolism and energy use. It’s also essential for transporting blood sugar from your bloodstream to your cells. The problem is that many people are resistant to the effects of insulin. This is known as insulin resistance, a hallmark of serious conditions like metabolic syndrome and type 2 Diabetes.

The good news is that cinnamon can dramatically reduce insulin resistance, helping this important hormone do its job. By increasing insulin sensitivity, cinnamon can lower blood sugar levels. Cinnamon has been shown to significantly increase sensitivity to the hormone insulin.

Cinnamon Lowers Blood Sugar Levels and Has a Powerful Anti-Diabetic Effect

Cinnamon is well known for its blood-sugar-lowering properties. Apart from the beneficial effects on insulin resistance, cinnamon can lower blood sugar by several other mechanisms. First, cinnamon has been shown to decrease the amount of glucose that enters your bloodstream after a meal. It does this by interfering with numerous digestive enzymes, which slows the breakdown of carbohydrates in your digestive tract. Second, a compound in cinnamon can act on cells by mimicking insulin. This greatly improves glucose uptake by your cells, though it acts much slower than insulin itself. Numerous human studies have confirmed the anti-diabetic effects of cinnamon, showing that it can lower fasting blood sugar levels by 10–29%. The effective dose is typically 1–2 grams of cinnamon per day. Cinnamon has been shown to reduce fasting blood sugar levels, having a potent anti-diabetic effect at 1–2 grams per day.

Cinnamon May Have Beneficial Effects on Neurodegenerative Diseases

Neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by progressive loss of the structure or function of brain cells. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease are two of the most common types. Two compounds found in cinnamon appear to inhibit the build-up of a protein called tau in the brain, which is one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease. In a study in people with Parkinson’s disease, cinnamon helped protect neurons, normalized neurotransmitter levels and improved motor function. Cinnamon has been shown to lead to various improvements for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease

Cinnamon May Protect Against Cancer

Cancer is a serious disease, characterized by uncontrolled cell growth. Cinnamon has been widely studied for its potential use in cancer prevention and treatment. Overall, the evidence is limited to test-tube and animal studies, which suggest that Ceylon cinnamon extracts may protect against cancer. It acts by reducing the growth of cancer cells and the formation of blood vessels in tumors and appears to be toxic to cancer cells, causing cell death. A study in people with colon cancer revealed that cinnamon is a potent activator of detoxifying enzymes in the colon, protecting against further cancer growth.

Cinnamon Helps Fight Bacterial and Fungal Infections

Cinnamaldehyde, one of the main active components of cinnamon, may help fight various kinds of infection. Ceylon Cinnamon oil has been shown to effectively treat respiratory tract infections caused by fungi. It can also inhibit the growth of certain bacteria, including Listeria and Salmonella. The antimicrobial effects of cinnamon may also help prevent tooth decay and reduce bad breath Cinnamaldehyde has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which may reduce infections and help fight tooth decay and bad breath.

Cinnamon May Help Fight the HIV Virus

HIV is a virus that slowly breaks down your immune system, which can eventually lead to AIDS, if untreated. Cinnamon extracted from Ceylon varieties is thought to help fight against HIV-1, the most common strain of the HIV virus in humans. In laboratory studies looking at HIV-infected cells found that cinnamon was the most effective treatment of all 69 medicinal plants studied. Test-tube studies have shown that cinnamon can help fight HIV-1, the main type of HIV virus in humans.

Cinnamon is helpful in purification of blood. It is helpful in tuberculosis and has a diuretic property.

Cinnamon is helpful in painful Micturition and cleanses the urinary bladder.

Cinnamon has a uterine contractive property. It is an aphrodisiac.

Cinnamon helps in strengthening the teeth. For this purpose, it is advised to keep a small stick in the mouth and chew it. Cinnamon helps in maintaining oral health and relieves bad breath.

Cinnamon helpful in amenorrhoea and delayed periods.

Cinnamon acts as a pain killer. It has a scraping property and is useful in nervous system problems.

Cinnamon helpful in nausea and vomiting.

In hyper pigmentation, it is advised to apply a thin mask of Cinnamon over the affected area.

In headache and other body pains or pain due to inflammation, a thin mask is applied over the affected area.

In premature ejaculation, cinnamon paste is applied over the penis.

Cinnamon is applied externally over an insect bite and scorpion sting. It helps in relieving the stinging pain.
