Cinnamon yummy. Smells sweet and the taste is powerful.  Will wake up every recipe.

Several studies suggest that cinnamon may have a regulatory effect on blood sugar, making it especially beneficial for people with Type 2 diabetes. Studies also show that adding 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon daily, has the power to lower LDL cholesterol.  It has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.

When I have a constant supplementation of cinnamon on a weekly basis, I really feel how my blood sugar is stable and my sugar cravings decrease. When added to food, it inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.

What is it? It is an aromatic spice that is made from inside dried bark of a Southeast Asian tree. It is a great source of manganese, fiber, zinc and calcium.

I am going to stock up on a new flavor today. Banana cream pudding. Sounds yummy, I will be adding all kinds of berries to this one.
You can add cinnamon to so many things including fruit. If you like but this recipe doesn’t call for any.
I also put cinnamon on my grapefruit. Another powerful fat loss snack.  SO delicious!  It takes the sing out of the tart.
