Doctors Stunned at Cinnamon’s Cancer-Fighting Abilities

If you love cinnamon, Clear Health Now has good news for you: New research shows that extracts of Cinnamon cassia — also known as Chinese cinnamon — may trigger cancer cell death (apoptosis). Researchers said the extract kills off cancer cells by activating proteins that make them literally commit suicide. The main compound in cinnamon, cinnamaldehyde, is what makes cinnamon so great, including helping to lower blood sugar, fight diabetes, slash heart disease risk, reduce inflammation and protect your brain from neurodegenerative disease.

The health benefits of cinnamon have been proven time and again, so the news that it may also fight cancer just adds to a long list of reasons why you can enjoy this spice in dishes that go beyond the sugary desserts that most of us probably think of when it comes to cinnamon. For example, in Indian cooking, it’s more often used to spice rice and vegetable dishes.

Since cinnamon has high amounts of calcium, fiber and manganese, as well as antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral and antioxidant properties, learning how to utilize it in many different ways in your cooking is nothing but a plus for your diet and health. For example, my Almond Crusted Salmon with Steamed Broccoli and Sweet Potato Hash Brown Recipe adds a great variation to an Alaskan wild-caught salmon.

Did you know, though, that there are many other uses for cinnamon? Medicinal purposes include to help in treating muscle spasms, vomiting, diarrhea, infections, appetite loss, erectile dysfunctions and colds. It also helps tame nausea. Or, soaking your feet in cinnamon tea can help in killing athlete’s foot, while sprinkling it around your windowsills can help repel ant infestations.
