    Cinnamon Fights Inflammation & Prevents Insulin Resistance

    Some of the simplest foods are sometimes the healthiest. Cinnamon is a popular kitchen spice used to flavor oatmeal, desserts, coffee and hot chocolate. Researchers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Human Nutrition Research Center found that cinnamon fights blood vessel inflammation and promotes insulin metabolism. Inflammation, as suggest by elevations in C-reactive protein, is an important risk factor for coronary artery disease. Insulin resistance also promotes heart disease and abdominal obesity. Cinnamon contains antioxidants called phenols that promote blood vessel health. The scientist found that even small doses of cinnamon were helpful. Bodybuilders would benefit by sprinkling a teaspon of cinnamon on their oatmeal at breakfast.
