Al-Marsad newspaper: “Medical Express” revealed unexpected health benefits of “cinnamon” when eaten on an empty stomach, as it is one of the best herbs for the body at all and has the effect of magic.
Cinnamon is rich in antioxidants – including polyphenols – that protect body tissues from oxidative stress and related diseases such as cancer, coronary heart disease and inflammation.
Cinnamon is a natural anti-inflammatory that prevents the release of arachidonic acid, a fatty acid that causes inflammation. This arachidonic acid can also cause blood clotting.
3- Protection from heart disease
Cinnamon is associated with lowering blood pressure, triglycerides, cholesterol and blood sugar levels in people with metabolic diseases.
4- Improve insulin sensitivity
Studies show that cinnamon may be able to reduce insulin resistance and increase sensitivity to the hormone insulin that can improve blood sugar control.
5- Protection from neurodegenerative diseases
Some compounds in cinnamon have an effect on tau protein, a brain protein linked to Alzheimer’s disease.
In a 2014 study in mice, cinnamon acted as a neuroprotectant and helped improve the motor function of mice with Parkinson’s disease.
