    Cinnamon, Dalchini in Hindi and Pattai in Tamil

    Soothes indigestion, controls blood sugar in diabetics, prevents stomach ulcers, wards off urinary tract infections, fights tooth decay and gum disease, prevents vaginal yeast infections.

    Apple Pie is always baked with cinnamon powder, while stewed apricots could always do with a stick of cinnamon. Boil a stick of cinnamon in water to remove the cooking odour in your kitchen.

    No spice powder in India is complete without a stick of cinnamon. But cinnamon is more than just a kitchen spice. It has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Modern science has confirmed its value for preventing infection and indigestion, and has also discovered a couple of new therapeutic uses for the herb.

    Cinnamon stick is a piece of the bark of an Asian tree. Ancient Chinese herbals have made a mention of cinnamon as early as 2700 B.C. Chinese herbalists still recommend it for fever, diarrhoea and menstrual problems. Cinnamon was an ingredient in ancient Egyptian embalming mixtures. In the Bible, Moses used it in holy anointing oil.

    Benefits are varied and many

    Several toothpastes are flavoured with cinnamon as the antiseptic properties of cinnamon helps kill the bacteria that cause tooth decay and gum disease. Like many culinary spices, cinnamon helps soothe an upset stomach. But a Japanese animal study revealed that it may also help prevent ulcers. Cinnamon is also used to cure a toothache. Recent studies reveal that cinnamon also reduces diabetes. Cinnamon can serve as a good appetiser too.

    Thanks for this informative post on Cinnamon dear Jaya.

    I am sharing some information about Cinnamon I came across in the net....

    In a study , patients given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast had significant relief in arthritis pain after one week and could walk without pain within one month.

    When added to food, it inhibits bacterial growth and food spoilage, making it a natural food preservative.
    ( That is also a reason for it popular place in our Indian spices....:thumbsup.)


    But, a word of caution.....

    Excess cinnamon is said to induce uterine contractions....so, it is better for pregnant ladies to be cautious.....

    Cinnamon tends to react with antibiotics......so, better to avoid cinnamon while having anti-biotics.

    Thank you for this post on the uses of cinnamon.

    Cinnamon imparts such a lovely flavour and fragrance to many recipes. I like the falvour of cinnamon in tea and also with apple in any form like apple pie, apple tart, apple upside down cake.
