All about cinnamon

Hey Crushers,

spice it! credits
I hope you had a nice weekend!

Today, I'm writing about cinnamon: I decided that in 2016 I would start taking my healthy lifestyle attempts more seriously - this must be an effect of late twenty's consciousness or something - so I'm investing on some research about healthy food. 

I've heard about the benefits of cinnamon and I wanted to share these tips with you. According to what I've read, this super spice will influence your health in several ways:

1. Blood Sugar Control;
2.It has antifungal, antibacterial, and even antiviral properties;
3. Helps your brain function:
4. Lowers the risk of Heart Disease;
5. It may have beneficial effects on neurodegenerative diseases;
6. Has been widely studied for its potential use in cancer prevention and treatment.

It's also cheap and very easy to add to your daily routine! You should be careful with the quantity, studies recommend 1/2 to 1 teaspoon (2-4 grams) of powder a day because very high doses may be toxic.
I just want to stress that I'm not an expert in nutrition but I'll keep writing about the good things I find on my research so I can contribute with some tips for your well being too! 

Your TopCrusher,
Daniela
