I'm working on an article on the health benefits of spices.  I found cinnamon a very interesting spice.  It is antifungal, antibacterial and stops Candida.  Since it stops bacteria, it is a useful medicine for gums.  I bought a blend of essential oils for a mouthwash and found cinnamon one of the oils used.  So if you have gum disease, this would be great for killing the bacteria around the gums.

Cinnamon is high in manganese and also helps reduce the risk of colon cancer and helps get rid of cholesterol.  As a warming herb it also stimulates the blood and so helps the heart and circulatory system.

Other benefits of cinnamon are for abdominal pain, diarrhea, gastric disorders, gas, indigestion, morning sickness, nausea, heartburn, athletes foot, diabetes and as a natural deodorant!

So, Spice Up Your Life by adding more cinnamon to your diet!
