Health Benefits of Cinnamon Tea

Health Benefits of Cinnamon Tea
Imagine if everyone knew about the 12 benefits of Cinnamon Tea? It would dramatically improve our collective health. Our medical profession could go out of business. The Diabetic foundation would have to close. Heart transplant surgeons would be begging for business and those get thin schemes would be on life support.The gyms would be screaming murder and those skin rejuvenation businesses would  be doing only hair removal.  And Sri Lanka, the only place in the world that grows real cinnamon would become rich. Kind of like those oil rich countries. A health producing country. This is a complete exaggeration of course. We got carried away with the possibilities. Anyway without further ado, here are the top 7 benefits of cinnamon tea.

1.Weight Loss
Including cinnamon tea in your weight loss diet can help in speeding up the weight loss process. The anti-inflammatory compounds in cinnamon tea helps in inhibiting growth of the adipose tissues. The thermogenic effect of the tea helps in breaking down the fats. Moreover, by stabilizing the blood sugar level, cinnamon tea helps in reducing sugar craving

2.Cinnamon as an Anti-Oxidant
Like many members of  the species, I like to smoke, drink, work too much and generally lead a bawdy existence. Not really. I do smoke however and yes it is a terrible habit. Now that I am getting older and  wiser I have discovered that cigarette smoke is a huge problem and is one of the leading producers of free radicals which in turn cause cancer.

3.Reduces Risk Of Dementia
The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities of cinnamon tea help in preventing age-related degeneration of the brain cells. Drinking cinnamon tea can help in reducing risks of Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Furthermore, studies have shown that the scent of cinnamon helps in stimulating the brain. It improves mood and cognitive function.

4.Stomach Flu  
Indigestion can cause stomach cramps, constipation or diarrhea, accompanied by a stomach ache or headache. Often caused by food not digesting properly for some reason. It could be because of a virus or the food you ate was not cooked properly or it was spoiled. A substance in cinnamon called catechins (a type of anti-oxidant) can help ease stomach discomfort, bloating, gas and indigestion. Cinnamon helps digest food as well reduce acid reflux by reducing stomach acidity. For best results add some honey as the combination creates a hydrogen peroxide effect. 

5.Fights Chronic Inflammation
Cinnamon tea is also valued for its anti-inflammatory activity. It blocks production of pro-inflammatory messaging molecules that trigger unwanted inflammation. Cinnamon tea is especially beneficial for people suffering from swelling and pain of the joints and muscles.

6. Blood Sugar Control
But course the effects of Cinnamon tea go beyond this. Many diabetics have started to take  Cinnamon to control their blood sugar. And inevitable most of them gravitate towards Ceylon Cinnamon. You see the normal Cinnamon you get here in the United States has high levels of Coumarin, which taken in excess can cause liver failure. If you are a diabetic, chances are that you take Cinnamon every day and that means trouble. Ceylon Cinnamon by comparison has ultra low levels of Coumarin (.004%) so that means you can ingest all the Ceylon Cinnamon you want without any worries of liver damage.

7.Other Benefits
In addition to soothing colds, cinnamon tea improves blood circulation and aids upset stomach and menstrual symptoms, according to Tea Benefits.com. It pairs well with pastries and fruit and fills the home with its sweet scent.
