(NaturalNews) In early civilization, cinnamon was used to treat everything from athlete's foot to indigestion. The cinnamon herb is obtained from the bark of its evergreen tree that originated from Sri Lanka. The herb has many benefits across all cultures, and researchers are still studying more of its uses in laboratories. Cinnamon aids the digestive system in different ways such as soothing the stomach, increasing metabolism, increasing appetite, and relieving gas.

Cinnamon and digestion

Cinnamon extracts are used to take care of gastrointestinal problems such as flatulent dyspepsia or gastrointestinal spasms and help calm the stomach. Cinnamon is in the carminative category because it contains an agent that assists in breaking up intestinal gas. These agents were used traditionally to fight diarrhea, as well as morning sickness.

Cinnamon is effective in relieving abdominal discomfort brought about by excess gas, as witnessed through lab tests and traditional uses. It is advisable to take a warm cup of tea or milk with a teaspoon of cinnamon after a meal. For people with heartburn, it can be used as a post-meal digestive aid and in stimulating weak digestive tract. At the same time, it hinders the formation of excess stomach gas.

Metabolism

Through its effects on digestion, cinnamon also benefits one's health in a more important way by improving glucose metabolism and stimulating the production of natural insulin. In addition, it also lowers blood cholesterol to appropriate levels. Cinnamon can be used to ease the process of digestion in the modern days amid increased lifestyle changes that are causing health problems.

How to use cinnamon

There are different ways of using cinnamon to achieve its digestive benefits. Some people prefer to use it as a spice, others sniff it, and others include it as part of a hot beverage. The mode of using the herb depends on the nature of digestive problems and the taste of the patient. However, most cultures and studies show that to ease digestion problems, many people take it as part of a hot beverage. You can include cinnamon in any type of food, not just tea. Smelling is more appropriate in case of colds or increasing brain function.

It is easier to use cinnamon that is ground as opposed to getting the barks to grind for yourself. There are many other ways that you can use cinnamon in tasty and simple manner. As mentioned, you can steep it into your herbal tea in a way that actually enhances the flavor of the tea. You can also add half teaspoonful to unsweetened applesauce, cappuccino, or coffee. It can also be part of breakfast oatmeal or any other cereal. Sprinkle it on a toast or add it to butter or cream cheese. It also goes down very well with various baked fruits such as apples and peaches, as well as ciders and fruit juices.

Cinnamon is indeed a natural way to improve your digestive power and get rid of all indigestion problems.
