If you already love the taste of cinnamon in your gluten-free baked goods and sprinkled on your morning coffee, you may want to consider moving this spice out of the kitchen and into the medicine cabinet.
Used as a natural medicine in many parts of the world, health experts are starting to take notice of the benefits of consuming small amounts of cinnamon on a daily basis.
In addition to the antioxidant boost it offers, studies have shown cinnamon to reduce inflammation and even fight off bacteria.
Of the two main varieties of the spice, cassia and Ceylon, Ceylon is free of the chemical compound coumarin, making it safe to consume daily.
Want to try this variety for yourself? Carlson Laboratories now makes Ceylon Cinnamon Capsules, available at natural health retailers and online for $9.90.
