Cinnamon

Spice

Widely used in cookery, cinnamon also has antispasmodic and antimicrobial properties. It is a warming digestive and circulatory stimulant and helps to counteract flatulence and diarrhoea. It is capable of suppressing the growth of numerous micro-organisms, including Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans, and some parasitic worms.

Recent research shows cinnamon also to have anti-cancer and anti-diabetic properties.
