    Cinnamon benefits

    Cinnamon has been known to do this for some time. I put in my oats and sometimes in my coffee. Any member using / adding Cinnamon to their foods on a regular basis? If so, what are you adding it to?

    Cinnamon may help attack fat, fight obesity, study finds

    University of Michigan research finds an essential oil in cinnamon attacks fat cells and could be used as a treatment to fight obesity.

    The research found the oil cinnamaldehyde boosts metabolic health by prodding fat cells to start burning energy — a process called thermogenesis.

    "Cinnamon has been part of our diets for thousands of years, and people generally enjoy it," said Jun Wu, a research assistant professor at UM's Life Sciences Institute. "So if it can help protect against obesity, too, it may offer an approach to metabolic health that is easier for patients to adhere to."
    Cinnamaldehyde gives cinnamon its flavor.

    The research builds off cinnamaldehyde studies in mice, where the oil protected against obesity.

    The new study, published in the December issue of the journal Metabolism, tested whether a similar effect would happen in humans.

    Using fat cells from volunteers, researchers treated the cells — called adipocytes — with cinnamaldehyde. The results found an "increased expression" of genes and enzymes that boost metabolism while increasing proteins beneficial to thermogenesis.

    Wu suggests cinnamaldehyde could be used to fight obesity by way of activating thermogenesis. But she held off on endorsing cinnamon as a weight-loss treatment until further study is done.

    More research is needed to discover cinnamaldehyde's benefits and side effects.

    I like the smell and taste of cinamon but I don't consume it often. Funnily enough, I smelt some less than half an hour ago. I guessed someone was baking with it. It smelt like hot-cross buns being baked. A heavenly aroma. Do I get the health benefis just from smelling it, Dr Grampa?

    Chop an overly rip banana in half, still in its skin.

    Chuck it into a pan of almost boiling water, add a stick of cinnamon.

    10 mins later you have a lovely pot of cinnamon and banana tea.


    Drink before bed. Supposed to help you sleep deeply too.

    Alone, with nothing. No way, Josť.

    The dash I put in with oatmeal and coffee is likely the same amount as a heaped teaspoon.

    I bet you don't though.

    In fact I bet you read that 'article' and then just posted that you do. It's just like you to jump on every fad bandwagon going.

    That's why you're so fat. Your diet and exercise is inconsistent and you're always looking for short-cuts that don't exist.

    I sometimes throw a stick of cinnamon in the oil when frying off the jeera and black mustard seeds when making a curry (with curry powder ). Since it's so hard, it goes in first, before the seeds.
    I don't do it every curry I make as it imparts quite a distinctive aroma, but my wife prefers my curries when they have the cinnamon, not that she realises it's the cinnamon.
