Cinnamon May Help Fight the Effects of High-Fat Diet and Curbs Belly Fats

By Rebecca Lewis on May 11, 2017

Cinnamon makes a perfect spice for cakes and pastries and some savoury dishes too. But apart from spicing up your meal, did you know it can also cut back on your belly fat? And wait there’s more: cinnamon may also help lessen the risk of heart damage brought on by a high-fat diet, and reduce diabetes risk by lowering blood sugar levels.

These are the latest findings of a preliminary study presented at the American Heart Association conference on Saturday.  

The study found that a high-fat diet rich in cinnamon is high in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory molecules that protect the body from the damages of stress.  The benefits of cinnamon have also been linked to soothing stomach digestion and making people smarter by improving their understanding.  

More Cinnamon Benefits 

This isn’t the first time that experts talk about the amazing health benefits of cinnamon. In 2016, researchers from Rush University Medical Centre in Chicago have found that sprinkling cinnamon powder in a hot drink, oatmeal or cereal may boost a brain protein that helps organise and store memory. 

Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants too which curb inflammation and reduce the risk of diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels. Another study by Melbourne University found that cinnamon help lower the stomach temperature, which aids digestion, up to two degrees. This lessens the damage to the stomach’s lining, reducing inflammation and many diseases of the guts. 

This common ingredient which you likely have in your pantry can also protect you from mental health disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. Another study by Rush University Medical Centre in Chicago found that the chemical enters the brain, stops the loss of proteins that help protect cells, protects neurons and improves motor functions.
