Cinnamon has long been known to fight bacterial and fungal infections, as well as enhance reproductive functions (4), help ease migraines and cramping, and digestive function. New findings demonstrate that cinnamon can help decrease glucose levels in diabetics and may also hold anti-Alzheimer’s disease properties. Two compounds found in cinnamon suggest that they inhibit tau protein formation (5), which researcher believes cause Alzheimer’s disease. Tau proteins cause clumps or tangles in the brain which may provoke this disease.
