Nutrition and Diet Corner

Temuco, Chile(Zone 9b)

I'd like to start a question and answer thread for all of us interested in good health , nutrition, diet and food in general.

I'll start by suggesting to anybody to start increasing the intake of cinnamon, add the powder to your breakfast cereal, cup-of-chocolate, fruit juice or anywhere you'd like. It is a wonderful stuff. Not only does consuming cinnamon improve the body's ability to utilize blood sugar, but just smelling the wonderful odor of this sweet spice boosts brain activityit, it has anti-microbial activity, helps diabetes, indigestion, and colds also flatulence, nausea, diarrhea, and painful menstrual periods.

Recent studies have found that cinnamon has a beneficial effect on blood sugar and it has an anti-clotting effect on the blood.
