Like many other spices, cinnamon has largely been overlooked when it comes to its antimicrobial properties. Several studies have found that cinnamon is effective at destroying most of the food-borne pathogenic bacteria that have caused the majority of the food-poisoning outbreaks we’ve been seeing lately. These include strains like Escherichia coli, Salmonella anatum, Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus, and Listeria monocytogenes.
In addition, it also happens to be excellent for oral health, as well as a breath-freshening agent.
Personally, I love cinnamon and use it in my morning protein shake. I also take about 250 mg four times a day whenever I want to freshen my breath.
Now it's your turn: How do you like to eat cinnamon?
