Cinnamon is a spice which is also known as dalchini in hindi. It not only gives taste to the Indian culinary but also provides us with many health benefits.

  • High source of Antoxidants: Cinnamon is packed with a variety of protective antioxidant like polyphenols, phenolic acid, and flavonoids which helps in reducing the free radical damage and also slows down the aging process.
  • Helps in controlling diabetes: It helps in lowering blood sugar levels by blocking certain enzymes called alanines which allows for glucose (sugar) to be absorbed into the blood. Therefore it has been shown to decrease the amount of glucose that enters the bloodstream after a high-sugar meal, which is especially important for those with diabetes.
  • Helps in lowering the risk of cancer:Cinnamon contains a compound called cinnamaldehyde which has a ability to inhibit cancer tumor growth and protect DNA from damage, while also encouraging cancerous cells to self-destruct (called cell apoptosis).
