Cinnamon Rice Recipe
In addition to being a tasty spice, cinnamon helps to lower blood sugar and increases insulin production in the body. It reduces LDL ("the bad") cholesterol, has shown to have anti-microbial benefits against H. pylori bacteria and has been shown to reduce chemical agents known as cytokines linked to arthritic pain.
