Posted: Apr 17, 2014
Today people are health conscious and want to have more information about the different herbs and spices that are available. Different studies and research is done to find out the benefits of various types of food items so that they can be used to their maximum potential.
Cinnamon is a common spice which is used with apples and even sprinkled over tea and lattes. It is especially famous for its aroma. It comes from grinding the brown bark of the cinnamon plant which grows in South America, West Indies, India and Indonesia. Cinnamon has a long history and has even been traced as far back as ancient Egypt. Cinnamon oil which is made from the bark of the plant has been known to be used as a medicine to fight infection. It is also used in Chinese medicine and acupuncture.
Cinnamon has natural antioxidants and medicinal properties because of which it is used in herbal medicines. It has been developed as organic cinnamon capsules and used in herbal treatments.
Besides its use as a spice, cinnamon has been found to have many benefits. Type 2 diabetes is a disease in which the body stops producing insulin. It has been found that some compounds in cinnamon help to regulate blood sugar levels thus lowering the risk of Type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon may contain compounds that act against cancerous cells and slow down the growth of tumors. It has also been found to be effective against osteoporosis which is a thinning of bones. Its many benefits also include reducing ulcers and diarrhea.
Because of its many benefits, cinnamon has been developed into cinnamon capsules and cinnamon pills which are available at health stores. These are just capsules or pills filled with cinnamon similar to vitamins or minerals pills. They are safe to use without any major side effects. However in a small number of people it has been found that they develop an allergic reaction due to the cinnamon. In such cases they develop irritation in the mouth and lips. Also it may interfere with other medicines that may be in use so it is a good idea to discuss with the doctor before starting to take cinnamon capsules or cinnamon pills. Also care should be taken that cinnamon capsules or pills do not replace the prescribed medicines for some disease.
The development of capsules and pills has made it very convenient to use. Instead of measuring out the powder with a teaspoon and not being sure how much exactly to take, one (or the prescribed amount) of capsules or pills can be taken safely. It must be noted that just like taking anything excessively can cause danger to health, the same way taking very high doses of cinnamon can be toxic.
Overall it has been found that many people have started using cinnamon as a medicine because of its many benefits and also because of the convenience of having cinnamon capsules or cinnamon pills. The same organic cinnamon capsules are also available and very convenient to use.
