6 reasons why cinnamon is a healing spice

I have received lots of emails asking about cinnamon and its benefits, so of course here they are! Cinnamon is found a lot in the Mediterranean, specially in Morocco where spices are often thrown together to give this sweet and savory taste.

Cinnamon isn’t just for cooking and baking, research has found that it is one of the most powerful healing spices!

1-Lowers cholesterol: studies have shown that 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon a day can lower LDL cholesterol.

2-Anti-clotting: it has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.

3-Arthritis relief: a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with 1 teaspoon of honey acts as a pain reliever for arthritis. (My mother uses this and swears by it!).

4-High in nutrients: cinnamon is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron and calcium.

5-Cancer prevention: according to a study by the Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon reduced the proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells.
