These antioxidants combat oxidative stress induced by free radicals, harmful molecules that harm cells and are linked to various diseases including diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.

Notably, cinnamon boasts a high content of polyphenol antioxidants. In fact, a study assessing the antioxidant potency of 26 spices found that cinnamon ranks third, surpassed only by cloves and oregano.*2

Research indicates that cinnamon compounds have the potential to decrease markers associated with inflammation. This could be highly advantageous, as inflammation is believed to underlie numerous chronic conditions, such as heart disease.*4

Additionally, research suggests that cinnamon may lower blood pressure and decrease levels of triglycerides and LDL (which is the bad kind) cholesterol in some of the participants.*5 Furthermore, cinnamon may elevate levels of HDL (which is the good kind) cholesterol, aiding in the enhancement of heart health by eliminating excess cholesterol from blood vessels.*6

An analysis of 10 studies revealed that consuming as little as 120 mg of cinnamon per day, which is less than a 1/10 teaspoon, could potentially enable you to experience these advantages.*7

Those in the cinnamon group reported significantly reduced menstrual pain compared to those receiving the placebo.*15
