WHY I'M OBSESSED WITH CINNAMON

I use cinnamon like it's my job. Seriously. Every single morning I put a dash into my coffee. I love to bake with it, in my oatmeal, in my protein shakes. I love cinnamon. Good news is, not only does it have a delightful flavor that I just can't get enough of, cinnamon packs serious health benefits! Whoopee. If you neglect this wonderful spice, here are just a few reasons to add it to your diet:

  • Promotes weight loss by stabilizing blood sugar levels and supporting digestion
  • Brain health. Cinnamon is a natural remedy to relieve migraines and headaches. It also helps boost memory and cognitive function.
  • Anti-fungal properties that help prevent UTI's, tooth decay, gum disease, and even congestion
  • Anti-clotting effect on the blood and stimulates circulation
  • Anti-inflammatory compounds that may relieve arthritis, stiff muscles and joints and even menstrual cramps -- yes, please!
You can reap these benefits by adding just a dash of cinnamon into your diet everyday. Try adding it to your morning coffee or tea! However,  just because cinnamon by itself is heathy, cinnamon rolls, not so much.
Stay healthy, babes xo
