At the end of the article it says 1/2 teaspoon of ceylon cinnamon is plenty to get the benefits.

Were they in your cinnamon?? Because cinnamon and cloves are used as a bug deterrent?? Most bugs don't like those spices.

EJ, they might not have been spiders -- they were so small I couldn't see them (and I had much better vision 30 years ago....), but I definately saw some kind of web in the container..... I just assumed they were spiders.

I got little tiny spiders (so tiny I did not really see them but did see thier tiny little webs) in a jar one time even though I thought the jar was tightly closed. So now if it has been sitting for over a month or two, I always check and if in doubt, throw it away....

I take a capsule every day and add it to my oatmeal,
but never thought of adding it to my yogurt. Sounds great!

I add the half teaspoon to my 175 grams of greek yogurt along with 1 teaspoon crushed nuts or 1/2 to 1 cup of non-wheat whole grain cereal and 1 cup of frozen berries for an awesome breakfast!
I also add it to the water when making Red River Cereal or Oatmeal. It's emoticon !

The Blood Sugar Stabilizing Super Food

Cinnamon is one of the most anti-oxidant rich herbs on the planet. It has been revered by nearly every culture for centuries for its sweet taste and pleasant aroma. Cinnamon has been shown to have remarkable medicinal qualities that enhance blood sugar signaling, reduce inflammation, stimulate immunity and promote neurological health.
Cinnamon is naturally attained from the inner bark of a specialized family of trees with the genus name Cinnamomum. It is primarily grown in South East Asia regions with Sri Lanka being the major producer at 80-90% of the world's supply.

Cinnamon is one of the oldest and most revered spices in the world. It was mentioned in the Bible several times as a component Moses used in anointing oil and it is in the perfume in the Song of Solomon among other areas. Cinnamon was so highly esteemed that it was considered more precious than gold.

Anti-Oxidant Powerhouse
Cinnamon has the 2nd highest ranked anti-oxidant rich
spice with an incredible ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbency Capacity) score of 267,536. Cinnamon's powerful essential oils are known for their "anti-microbial" factors. Studies have shown this spice to be highly effective at halting the growth of bacteria as well as fungi, including the commonly problematic yeast Candida.

Cinnamon also helps to balance blood sugar by stimulating insulin receptors, giving them a stronger affinity for the blood-sugar lowering hormone. In response, the body needs to produce less insulin in order to create the desired effect. This creates less pancreatic stress, improved metabolic rate, and decreased inflammation.

Cinnamon has three major oils that contain active compoenets called cinnamaldehyde, cinnamyl acetate and cinnamyl alcohol. Cinnamaldehyde have been studied to block the release of inflammatory agents on the cell membrane.

If this isn't enough, the mere scent of cinnamon has been shown to powerfully stimulate regions of the brain allowing for greater attention span & memory.Sprinkle tons of this amazing spice on sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, fruit, pastries, ice cream, egg nog, etc.
Cinnamon should be kept in a cool, dark area with a tight seal to reduce oxidation of its powerful nutrients. Ground cinnamon will stay good for 6 months in the proper conditions while cinnamon sticks will last about a year. Refrigeration helps extend this lifespan. If the cinnamon does not smell sweet than it is no longer fresh and should be thrown away. Old cinnamon smells somewhat rusty and has a reduced aromatic component.

Two major types of cinnamon commonly found on the market include Ceylon cinnamon and Cassia. These are from the same family but only the Ceylon variety is considered true cinnamon. Ceylon is more expensive and nutrient dense but also harder to come by. Both types have been shown to have powerful anti-microbial, anti-iflammatory and blood sugar regulating abilities.

The major difference between the two is the coumarin content. Coumarins are blood thinning agents that are found in many different plants. High intake of these coumarins can cause too low a blood thinning affect. Cassia cinnamon has much higher levels of coumarins and therefore must be used in moderation in comparison to the Ceylon.

The challenge of the consumer is that the different types are most often not clearly labeled. The powders look and smell the same. It is best for individuals to use this spice in moderation unless they know for sure it is the Ceylon type. A half teaspoon daily is plenty to derive the benefits of this super herb.
