There is a few small steps in between but this is a super simple delicious cinnamon swirl recipe is to die for. Cinnamon not only taste’s great it has so many properties that are beneficial for us as human beings. Until now and doing a little research about this great recipe from Kirsten at F00dventures I did not realise how many healing properties it does have. For me when I am feeling unwell I crave the warmth of cinnamon in anything. How little did I realise.
The Health Benefits Of Cinnamon
There are two main types of cinnamon (1):
- Ceylon cinnamon: Also known as “true” cinnamon.
- Cassia cinnamon: This is the more common variety today, what people generally refer to as “cinnamon.” (Source)
The cinnamon we regularly consume is the cassia cinnamon which is produced by cutting the stems and bark from the cinnamomum tree. The inner bark is then extracted, dried and then can be used as stick or ground into powder. The distinctive smell of flavour is from the oily part of the tree compound called cinnamaldehyde.
Antioxidants and Cinnamon
In one study cinnamon has proved to have more antioxidant than 26 comparable spices. Talk about superfoods, cinnamon has super quality’s. I just liked the taste and the comforting aroma, I did not realise how good Cassia cinnamon was for healing the body. It even outranks garlic and oregano as a superfood.
Cinnamon and Its Health Properties
Cinnamon claims to have many other beneficial properties.
- Lowers blood sugar levels
- Anti diabetic properties
- Improve Sensitivity to insulin
- May cut the risk of heart disease
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- May help with Neurodegenerative diseases

As with anything we consume cinnamon should be consumed in moderation, anything taken to excess can be harmful.
