Cinnamon and dental health

Cinnamon and dental health

More than a holiday spice

From Nick Polizzi of the Sacred Science

 

Today I want to
reveal a secret about a well-known herb.

It’s a yummy
spice that people associate with desserts and sweets, because of it’s warming
and mouth-watering taste… I’m talking about cinnamon

But cinnamon is
so much more than a key ingredient for holiday festivities – it’s also
potent medicine.

Cinnamon has long
been used as a cardiotonic, which means it’s good for your heart!
Studies show that it strengthens heart tissue and helps to normalize both blood
pressure and blood sugar. This makes cinnamon a popular preventative supplement
for folks at risk of becoming diabetic.

Cinnamon is also
a digestive herb. Its warming nature helps your body to process fats and get
stagnant lower bowels moving again. But one of cinnamon’s main supportive
properties is its astringency. This potent herb has the ability to
tighten up internal tissues, making cinnamon a great herbal ally for leaky gut
and ulcers.

In addition to
its other health benefits, cinnamon is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and
anti-viral
— which is great for your mouth, your gums, and your teeth. It’s
a natural-born “bad-breath killer.”

Here is a great way to incorporate cinnamon into your oral
health routine” a simple cinnamon
tooth powder recipe
