Cinnamon ! Not only for pies!
Cinnamon is a great spice!
It smells good and it taste good! Which makes it an unusual medicine!
Cinnamon is warming and stimulating.
It improves digestion, activates circulation and is also an expectorant for colds and flus. It helps relieve pain due to muscle tension and tooth aches. It also can help relieve nausea and abdominal pain. No studies show that it lowers blood sugar but it certainly helps assimilate sugars and this is probably why originally it is sprinkled on sweet food. Cinnamon can be used as a supplement to decrease insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes.
• great as an infusion on its own or in chai tea.
I love using it in soups and my favorite recipe is Tunisian pumpkin soup!!!!!
