Hey Knight, that must have been intersting to eat, glad you found the link helpful, cinnamon and extra virgine olive oil (a great natural anti-inflammatorie), although I don't think the EVOO would be very appealing on oatmeal LOL!
But traditionally cinnamon, due to its medicinal properties, has been used in many cultures for treating a variety of health disorders including diarrhea, arthritis, menstrual cramps, heavy menstruation, yeast infections, colds, flu, and digestive problems.
Now it is being used all over the world for treating a variety of health disorders including respiratory problems, skin infections, blood impurity, menstruation problems, heart disorders, etc. The most widely used part of cinnamon is its bark.
The health benefits of cinnamon can be attributed to its antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, astringent and anti clotting properties. Cinnamon is rich in essential minerals such as manganese, iron and calcium. It is also rich in fiber.
My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
