Cinnamon: It's What's for Breakfast

I love cinnamon. 
I put it in all of my breakfast treats -oatmeal, cereal, milk, toast, yogurt, coffee, fruit, etc.
You should do the same, because it's so good for you!
Studies show that adding half of a teaspoon of cinnamon to your daily diet can lower LDL.
LDLs are Low-Density Lipoproteins, or as I've always been taught, the "Least-Desirable Lipoproteins."

Here are some other things that cinnamon will do for your body:
  • Regulates blood sugar
  • Has an anti-clotting affect on the blood
  • A great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium.
  • Has the ability to stop the growth of bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites in the body
  • Its scent boosts brain function
  • Improves colon health
  • Protects against heart disease
  • Reduces proliferation of leukemia and lymphoma cancer cells
  • It's proven to fight bad breath
  • Home remedy to cure the common cold/respiratory problems
  • Provides relief from menstrual cramping
  • Reduces arthritis pain
  • Effective for helping nausea, heart burn, indigestion, upset stomach, diarrhea (Yay, Pepto-Bismol! ..couldn't help but think of that song/commercial) 
  • Natural food preserver
  • Muscle and joint pain reliever

With all of these health benefits, why on Earth not add cinnamon to your diet?

I use McCormick's Cinnamon Grinder
By turning the lid, it grinds the flakes of cinnamon into teeny pieces.
 It gives my foods the freshest cinnamon flavor and aroma!
