Last month we blogged about one of our very favourite kitchen spices in our blog titled ” The Healing Kitchen” , Turmeric is nutritional powerhouse that is found in most people’s cupboards. It has healing properties that are powerful and vast and easily tops our list. We certainly don’t stop there though, our kitchens are full of beautiful healers. Another favourite that not only tastes fantastic but packs a great nutritional punch as well is the ever popular cinnamon. This super spice surely not only helps make our food taste better, but it also does much more than that. Let’s take a look.
Cinnamon can help regulate blood sugar, and is known to reduce harmful cholesterol levels. Cinnamon has been shown to reduce pain associated with arthritis as well as pains related to many other conditions and ailments. Cinnamon has antibacterial and anti fungal properties and it has been said that candida cannot live in a cinnamon environment, what a great natural remedy!! With winter around the corner, knowing that cinnamon is used to treat things such as colds, it is a must in many families cupboards for sure. Cinnamon may provide relief to those suffering migraines as well.  Sounds like a pretty tasty way to rid a horrible headache. Let’s just be clear however that with all these great healing properties found in cinnamon, doses need not be too big, as a matter of fact, too much cinnamon ( we are talking mega amounts) has been found to be toxic in large does. So simply adding pinches here and there, or a stick or two in a cup of tea are wonderful ways to enjoy the amazing healing powers of this super spice 🙂
We love brewing up a nice Chaga mushroom tea and adding a few cinnamon sticks, sitting back and feeling the immune boosting properties taking action, relaxing, healing and tasty how could you ever go wrong:)
