THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

Cinnamon is good for:

• Lowering cholesterol.

• Aiding digestion.

• Treating diarrhea.

• Curing the common cold.

• Reducing arthritis pain.

• Boosting memory and cognitive function.

• Treating toothaches.

• Eliminating bad breath.

• Curing headaches and migraine pain.

A WORD OF CAUTION REGARDING CINNAMON - Some recent studies in Europe have shown that cinnamon derived from the Cassia plant contains a toxic compound known as Coumarin. This compound is known to cause liver and kidney damage in high concentrations. Since the powdered cinnamon that we purchase in our supermarkets is typically derived from the Cassia plant, it is important to avoid consuming high doses of it.


Since cinnamon has an anti-clotting effect on the blood, caution should also be exercised when it is used in combination with other blood-thinning products such as aspirin. Large quantities of cinnamon should also be avoided during pregnancy due to the possibility of adverse effects on the uterus.

Anyone that is currently taking medication for controlling blood sugar levels or blood thinners should consult their doctor before using cinnamon as a regular supplement.
