The food we eat is so powerful! Cinnamon has been shown to have properties that help to prevent diabetes, and it is now being shown to protect from Alzheimer’s disease. Research carried out by a scientist associated with the US Department of Agriculture demonstrated that consuming cinnamon can actually reverse effects of the disease. Cinnamon can be sprinkled over food, added to drinks, and can even be taken as a supplement! Consuming half a teaspoon to a teaspoon a day appears to be the optimum amount for most people.
