Healthiest Herbs in The World # 3- Cinnamon

By Bella

Cinnamon is honestly one of my favorite smelling herbs! It has a very warm and comforting smell, which brings you to think of the fall and winter months. Not only does this herb have a wonderful smell to it, it also as great nutritional properties!

Cinnamon is high in magnesium, fiber, iron and calcium. Cinnamon is also used to help with diarrhea and upset stomachs.

Cinnamon is a great metabolism booster, so if you are trying to loose weight, adding cinnamon to your dishes would be helpful.

The essential oils found in the cinnamon bark contains anti-clotting, and anti-microbial properties.

Cinnamon also helps control your blood sugar, so if you suffer from diabetes, adding more cinnamon into your diet would be helpful.

Cinnamon has anaesthetic properties which will help relieve pain and help heal minor wounds. Rub some cinnamon on cuts and scrapes to help the healing process.

Things I like to add cinnamon to:

Yogurt
Apple cider
baked goods
Tea
On top of winter squashes vegetables, such as green and yellow squash, butternut squash, acorn squash, spaghetti squash.

Those are a few things I like to add cinnamon to.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and will appreciate all the health benefits cinnamon can give you!
