Smelling the Aroma of Cinnamon can Boosts your Brain Performance

Sugars and sweets have gotten such a bad rep that people have passed up on taking desserts. But there is one sweet offering you can eat with relish.

Cinnamon comes from the bark of the cinnamon tree. Combined with apples and other fruits, powdered cinnamon is a favorite pastry ingredient. But it has also been used for medicinal and nutritional purposes. It is an excellent source of mangenese, iron, calcium, and dietary fiber.
Cinnamon bark also has essential oils that contain cinnamaldehyde, cinnamyl acetate and cinnamyl alcohol. These components, especially cinnamaldehyde, keep blood from clumping into heart attack and stroke causing blood clots.
Cinnamon may also prove helpful to people with increased risk of heart attack, such as those with diabetes. It has been found that just half a teaspoon of cinnamon daily reduces blood sugar levels in diabetic patients by 20%, and their blood cholesterol and fat levels also decreased.
If you are not keen on eating cinnamon, you can sniff it. Research showed that just smelling the aroma of the spice boosts brain performance (memory, reaction time and hand-eye coordination)!

Storage tip for cinnamon : If stored in a dark, airtight container, ground cinnamon will keep for six months, and cinnamon sticks for a year. You may also refrigerate cinnamon. Do not use scentless cinnamon - it is already stale.
