I have written about the benefits of cinnamon many times. Here is a partial list . . . . .
Still not convinced?
Try this one on then. In a Recent study published by the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, researchers found that compounds in cinnamon reduced the aggregation of tau protein in the brains of men and women with Alzheimer’s.
Translation. . . . The tau protein is the one that is responsible for the assembly of small tubules inside a cell. It forms its structure. When it does not work properly, it clumps forming “tangled fibers.” Needless to say, nothing good follows.
This current study revealed that the cinnamon compounds inhibit this clumping effect by protecting the protein.
Doc’s Thoughts: I am not sure there is much to add here. I have recommended cinnamon for so many patients over the decades, particularly for diabetic ones as it has a tremendously positive effect on the stabilization of blood sugar. We can now add potential Alzheimer’s protection to the long (and ever growing) list of benefits.
