Learn what makes cinnamon a superfood from nutrition coach Lisa Neilsen in this Howcast video.


The next super spice is cinnamon. I love to recommend cinnamon as a natural sweetener to my clients. It's natural for us to have sweet cravings so one of the ways you can allleviate those is by using natural sweeteners like cinnamon. Cinnamon has recently been discovered to stabilize blood sugar levels so it's good for people who are obese or have diabetes. It also has anti-inflammatory properties so it's good for achy joints and arthritis and it also has anti-bacterial properties which prevent disesase from occurring in your body. There are lots of different ways to enjoy cinnamon so sometimes it's fun to shake it up; we don't always have to follow the rules when cooking. So some of the things that I've done is I've actually added cinnamon to my tomato sauces just to mix up the tomato seasoning and I even heard from a friend who likes to put cinnamon into chili. So go ahead and add cinnamon to your diet and put some natural sweetness in your life.
