Cinnamon

The medicinal uses of cinnamon can be found in ancient Egyptian history and it is still with us today. The spice is made from the inner back of the cinnamon tree and its benefits are immense to the body’s overall immune health.

This sweet and mildly hot spice fights inflammation and prevents infections and heals damaged tissues. Cinnamon contains a greater amount of antioxidant activities in comparison to 26 spices, and superfoods like oregano and garlic are no match for it as they were outranked because of its large amounts of polyphenol.

Research has it that cinnamon helps to reduce the risks associated with heart diseases and contains some anti-diabetic effects. When making your favorite latte, cinnamon roll or banana bread put a dash of cinnamon into and enjoy this tasty spice with its added benefits.
