11 Health Benefits of Cinnamon

11 Health Benefits of Cinnamon | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it
The health benefits of cinnamon are nothing short of astonishing. Here are eleven reasons cinnamon should be prized among your spices.

 

Cinnamon can reduce belly fat! Yes! That is what I said.

 

Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to man. In fact it was considered more precious than gold. The early Egyptians used it for flavoring foods and for medicinal purposes and it’s even mentioned in the bible.

 

Today most people only think of cinnamon as a spice for apple pie or sweet potatoes and gingerbread cookies. But cinnamon is in fact so much more!

A study of 12 men found that glycemic load—distinct from calories or sweetness—can alter brain function and promote overeating. Is there such a thing as food addiction? A study using brain imaging suggests that high-glycemic foods may trigger the same brain mechanism as substance abuse.

The benefit of the diets which reduce sugar and carbohydrates such as Glycemic Index, Atkins, South Beach, Belly Fat Cure are in part due to the reduced sugar effect on the brain.

From the article: 

This study narrows the difference to one variable only—the glycemic load—and indicates that this factor, distinct from calories or sweetness, can alter brain function and promote overeating. “These findings suggest that limiting high-glycemic index carbohydrates like white bread and potatoes could help obese individuals reduce cravings and control the urge to overeat,

How to Reverse the Damage of a Sugar Addiction.

 

An addictive substance is characterized by its ability to cause pleasant feelings, to cause long-term changes in the brain, to lead to physical dependence and to cause cravings, according to the website Research Penn State. Scientists debate whether sugar is physically addictive because it might not cause physical dependence, according to Jan Ulbrecht, associate professor in Biobehavioral Health and Medicine at Penn State University. However, long-term overindulgence in sugary food can have lasting consequences for your health.

Does seeing a dish's calorie count make you eat healthier?

Does seeing a dish's calorie count make you eat healthier? | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it

The moment of truth: The creamy pasta dish sounds delicious, but it's 500 calories more than the grilled chicken and vegetables. Do you order it?

In many cases the answer is yes, say researchers who have studied what happens when calorie counts are included on menus.

More diners will open their menus to find calorie counts under a proposed federal law requiring the counts in restaurants with 20 or more locations. Health advocates and restaurants say the law could be finalized by the end of the year. A Food and Drug Administration spokeswoman says details of the law, first proposed as part of the 2010 health care bill, are still being worked out. It could also require grocery and convenience stores to list calories on prepared foods.

Many restaurants are reworking recipes, swapping in whole milk for cream or putting less oil in cooking pans. Some are adding less sauce to dishes or offering smaller portions. Many are creating lower-calorie sections on menus or sticking to calorie guardrails, designing dishes to come in under 500 calories, A study funded by the City of New York that reviewed about 15,000 receipts and surveys from fast-food lunch patrons before and after the city required those restaurants to list calories on menus showed no change in the average calories bought. But 1 in 6 people used the calorie information, and that group purchased an average of 96 fewer calories, an 11% decrease.

Avocado: The Prolific Green Fruit, Vegetable, and Nut Combined ("good even for diabets")

Avocado: The Prolific Green Fruit, Vegetable, and Nut Combined ("good even for diabets") | Nutrition Dos and Don'ts | Scoop.it
Studies have even found avocado-eaters to be especially healthy. Here is why the health benefits of avocados are some you will not want to miss:

Avocados have enough protein in them to (almost) replace meat or cheese. This is why they are a staple food of many vegans and vegetarians.Avocados are full of 13 essential minerals that our bodies need to carry out a plethora of vital functions, from repairing red blood cells to balancing our endocrine system to preventing anemia. They contain potassium, iron, copper, magnesium, and more.The fruit is a great source of linoleic acid and oleic acid, important forms of monounsaturated fats that the body needs to keep us at a healthy body weight and improve cardiovascular health.Avocados can lower your cholesterol levels significantly and may help to regulate cravings for other, less healthy, man-made fats that convenience foods are packed with.A spoonful of avocado oil daily can help to prevent pre-mature aging. Full of both vitamins A and E, avocados help to restore smooth skin and repair aging skin.Avocados provide great energy with their high B vitamins content, containing three important B vitamins: pyridoxine (B6), pantothenic (B5) and folate.Avocados help with sluggish digestion due to their high fiber content. A long standing remedy for constipation is to mix two avocados with just one teaspoon of organic apple cider vinegar or lemon juice, then eat one spoonful at a time.  Avocados also help with colitis, ulcers, and bowel disorders.
