Cinnamon for your Health

Health Tip of the Day -

Could it be any easier? 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon everyday may help lower blood sugar, fats and cholesterol by 30%. Real info or something goofy I came up with one my own? No, it from Reuters Health.

Apparently, cinnamon contains compounds that help make insulin more efficent. Type 2 Diabetes arises when the body loses sensativity to insulin. And when you have insulin resistance you can have FAT around your middle that will not go away, HEART disease, FATIGUE, MOODINESS, KIDNEY disease and uncontrolable CRAVINGS to name a few of the miserable things waiting for you.

So many times we hear cutting out the yummy things are good for our health. I like adding something tasty. A dash in my morning shake, on my latte's foam, on toast, in my cooking rice.... I can even drop a cinnimon stick in boiling water and make tea. If only every cure was so easy.
