Question: What are the health benefits of cinnamon?
Cinnamon is an extremely popular spice used in everything from baking pies to flavoring curries, but it may also have some health benefits. In some studies, cinnamon was shown to help lower cholesterol and inflammation, reduce diabetic blood sugar levels, and fight bacteria. However, most of these studies on cinnamon provide mixed results, which means that the real health benefits are not known. What is widely accepted is that high doses of cinnamon can be toxic, so if you decide to use it for more than cooking, exercise caution.
