Can you name a superfood that is very high in calcium (yet is not a dairy product), high in fiber, iron, and manganese?
The only food that checks all these boxes is cinnamon.
Even better, it is inexpensive, has no side effects, and has a host of health benefits. Its
essential oils make it valued for its warming qualities, as it aids fat burning as well.
A 12-week study found that cinnamon drops A1c levels in diabetics by 7% (Journal of British Diabetic Association). The participants in the study took 2g of cinnamon daily, and it not only helped with blood-sugar but it also significantly reduced blood pressure.
Another study found that cinnamon increased glucose metabolism by about 20 times, which would make a huge difference in your body being able to regulate blood sugar.
Cinnamon goes well in savory dishes like soups and tagines and is a delicious natural sweet addition in smoothies and baking. It also shines in deserts and breakfasts -- Cinnamon makes us think of Christmas and cozying up at home in the warmth.
