I'm craving cinnamon like crazy the past couple of days.
Yep it's officially fall... well not really but September 1st marks the beginning to me!
I got on a cinnamon tea kick the other day when reading that it could possibly help naturally induce labor... yeah well that didn't work. But I did discover an easy delicious hot fall drink.
All you do is boil a cup of water with 3 cinnamon sticks. Remove the sticks then add in about a tbs of sugar... and sip.
When reading up on this "Cinnamon Tea Labor Induction" I also stumbled apon allot of facts on the benefits of cinnamon.
Who would have known that cinnamon can.....
~ Help with indigestion
~Slows the spoiling of food
~Sniffing it can improve brain function
~ Improves type 2 diabetes
~Helps with insulin resistance
I know right? I'm adding cinnamon into my daily diet! For more bennies of adding cinnamon into your diet CLICK
