Cinnamon Could Fight Disease

A new disease fighter could be moving into your medicine cabinet from your spice rack.

Two studies presented at an experimental biology conference in San Francisco found cinnamon has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that could lower cholesterol and improve insulin function in the body.

More study is needed but researchers say cinnamon could someday be useful in preventing or controlling arthritis and even cardiovascular disease, but only in capsule form. It doesn't matter how much you sprinkle on your food. Saliva brings a chemical change. So if you can taste any cinnamon you've tossed out the disease fighter.
