Benefits of Cinnamon

One of the best ways to consume cinnamon is in tea. This way you preserve all the active components of the spice without any interference from other foods. Furthermore, it’s easier for the digestive system to absorb cinnamon tea, meaning you see the benefits in a shorter amount of time.

Health Benefits:

Regulates Blood Sugar

Research has shown that regular cinnamon supplementation can result in lower levels of blood sugar, believed to be caused by reduced insulin sensitivity. For those suffering from Type 2 diabetes, this can be important, as high blood sugar must be constantly monitored. Furthermore, this sort of preventative remedy or treatment can help prevent related conditions, such as obesity or cardiovascular issues.

Weight Loss

In a related way to its effects on diabetes, cinnamon can also help the body store less fat. Essentially, by reducing the amount of insulin produced, cinnamon tea also reduces blood sugar. Due to this, your body will store less fat and gradually lose weight. 

Lowers Cholesterol Levels

Cinnamon has a proven effect on glycemia and lipid levels in the body, namely reducing their concentration, which is a good news for those with concerns about their heart health. By lowering LDL cholesterol levels and increased levels of “good” cholesterol, cinnamon tea is able to lower your chances of developing atherosclerosis or having a heart attack/stroke. Lower cholesterol level is also important for maintaining your weight and preventing coronary heart disease.

Boosts Immune System

A number of organic compounds found in cinnamon have antiviral, anti fungal, and antiseptic effects. This makes cinnamon tea one of the best beverages for improving immune system function, as the antioxidants neutralize and remove foreign pathogens and materials that could cause infection or illness in the body. This is particularly valuable for stomach, where so many of these pathogens can be found.

Prevents Chronic Diseases

Cinnamon has a high concentration of powerful antioxidants, including the active ingredient, cinnamaldehyde, as well as catechins, cyanids and other important compounds. These antioxidants are ideal for neutralizing free radicals, the dangerous byproducts of cellular metabolism, and preventing oxidative stress throughout the body. This means that cinnamon tea can even have a preventative effect on certain types of cancers, as well as chronic illnesses that become more common as we age.

Improves Digestion

Studies have shown a clear improvement in gastrointestinal health in subjects who regularly consume cinnamon supplements. Cinnamon, as a digestive aid, has a stimulating effect on gastric juices and stomach acids. This makes digestion more efficient and effective, leading to less gas, constipation, bloating, cramping, and stomach upset. Inflammation of the bowels, caused by IBS and other conditions, can also be avoided by the regular intake of cinnamon tea. Finally, this tea is known as an appetite stimulant, in case you are suffering from malnutrition or anorexia.

Boosts Brain Function

Research has found that cinnamon is not only important for the body, but also for the mind. Particularly in older generations, cinnamon is known to improve cognitive speed, boost concentration and focus, and even stimulate the growth of new neural pathways. Thus, making it an important herbal strategy for the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other degenerative neural conditions.

Reduces Inflammation

Throughout the body, inflammation can take on many forms, from itchiness and irritation on the skin or in the throat/lungs, to aches and pains throughout your joints and muscles. Cinnamon tea has been shown to reduce inflammation and pain in many cases, making it a soothing and relaxing remedy for many conditions.

Treats Menstrual Cramps

Women who suffer from severe menstruation symptoms are often desperate for a reliable remedy that doesn’t impact their hormone levels. Cinnamon has a number of analgesic and anticoagulant effects, meaning that it can reduce the pain and cramping of your menstruation. It also helps reduce the severity of the period, if you tend to have a heavier flow.

Word of Caution

Cinnamon tea, in spite of having many impressive benefits, has some side effects too. Excess intake of cinnamon tea can be very dangerous for the liver, and can even cause liver failure. This is due to the presence of an active ingredient, called coumarin. While most varieties of cinnamon have safe levels, excessive consumption of Cassia, Saigon, and Korintje cinnamon varieties can be dangerous. That being said, a few cups of cinnamon tea each day should be satisfactory, and will not pose a threat to your liver health.

What Is Astragalus?

Astragalus is a plant within the Leguminosae (beans or legumes) family, with a very long history as an immune system booster and disease fighter. Its roots are in Traditional Chinese Medicine, in which it’s been used as an adaptogen for thousands of years — meaning it helps the body fight off stress and disease. Today, astragalus medicinal healing and treatment uses span many different illnesses and diseases.

Astragalus Benefits

 

1. Acts as an Anti-Inflammatory

Inflammation is at the root of most diseases. From arthritis to heart disease, it’s often the culprit of the damage. Many studies show that thanks to its saponins and polysaccharides, astragalus can reduce inflammatory response in connection to a number of illnesses and conditions, from helping to heal wounds and lesions to reducing inflammation in diabetic kidney disease. 

2. Boosts the Immune System

In terms of reputation, boosting the immune system is astragalus’ claim to fame. It’s been used in this capacity for thousands of years. A study out of Beijing displayed its ability to control t-helper cells 1 and 2, essentially regulating the body’s immune responses. Although the full extent of the herb’s capabilities are yet to be determined, there is sufficient evidence to suggest that astragalus, used as an adjunct therapy, will someday be used to cure many diseases.

3. Slows or Prevents the Growth of Tumors

Many recent screenings have shown the success of astragalus saponins, flavonoids and polysaccharides in decreasing or eliminating tumors. In instances of chemo resistance treating liver cancer, astragalus has shown potential in reversing multi drug resistance and as an addition to conventional chemotherapy, according to a study published in the Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology

4. Protects the Cardiovascular System

The flavonoids present in astragalus are antioxidants that help prevent plaque buildup in arteries and narrowing of vessel walls by protecting the inner wall of the vessel. In addition, a 2014 study published in the Chinese Journal of Integrative Medicine suggests injection of astragalus, combined with conventional treatment for viral myocarditis (inflammation of the middle layer of the heart wall), makes treatment more successful in heart conditions. 

Other studies have shown its ability to reduce blood pressure and level of triglycerides. High levels of triglycerides put individuals at risk for many forms of heart disease, such as stroke, heart attack and hardening of artery walls.

During a heart attack, heart muscle damage occurs when there is a lack of blood supply and oxygen. At that time, calcium overload creates secondary damage. Astragalus can prevent additional heart muscle damage by regulating calcium homeostasis in the heart.

5. Regulates and Prevents Diabetes and Illnesses Related to Diabetes

Astragalus has been studied progressively as an anti-diabetic. Studies show its ability to relieve insulin resistance and treat diabetes naturally. The herb’s collection of saponins, flavonoids and polysaccharides all are effective in treating and regulating type 1 and 2 diabetes. They’re able to increase insulin sensitivity, protect pancreatic beta cells (the cells in the pancreas that produce and release insulin) and also act as anti-inflammatories in areas related to diabetes symptoms. 

Kidney disease in diabetics is also a common problem, and astragalus has been used to treat kidney illness for many years. More recent studies have shown astragalus can slow the progress of kidney problems in diabetics and protect the renal system. 

6. Contains Antioxidative and Anti-Aging Capabilities

Oxidation due to free radical damage is the main component in disease and aging, and many elements found in astragalus fight free radical damage and prevent of oxidative stress. The herb’s polysaccharides have positive effects on the immune system and improvement of the function of the brain, both of which could lengthen life span.

7. Heals Wounds

Because of its anti-inflammatory qualities, astragalus has a long history of treating wounds. Radix astragali, another name for the dried root of astragalus, has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for the repair and regeneration of injured organs and tissues.

In a 2012 study by the Institute of Pharmaceutics at Zhejiang University, wounds treated with astragaloside IV (the active ingredient in dried astragalus root) showed recovery rates increase two- to threefold over 48–96 hours. It was concluded that astragalus is a promising natural product for anti-scarring and healing in wounds. 

8. Alleviates Symptoms of Chemotherapy

Astragalus has been shown to help patients receiving chemotherapy to recover more quickly and extend their life spans. In cases of severe chemotherapy symptoms like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and bone marrow suppression, astragalus has been given intravenously and in combination with other Chinese herbal mixtures. Early research suggests its ability to reduce these symptoms and increase the efficacy of the chemotherapy treatments. 

9. Treats Colds and Flu

Because of astragalus’ antiviral capabilities, it has long been used to treat common colds and the flu. It’s commonly combined with other herbs like ginseng, angelica and licorice. As with many other natural cold remedies, it seems to work better when used when healthy individuals use the supplement regularly in order to prevent the illness before it happens. A regimen of astragalus before the colder months of winter is said to prevent or decrease the number of colds and upper respiratory illnesses individuals will have throughout the season. 

10. Provides Supplemental Therapy for Chronic Asthma

Astragalus has been used to treat chronic asthma and determined to be a successful supplemental therapy and asthma natural remedy. After being treated, hypersensitivity in airways decreased substantially and mucus production and inflammation were reduced in studies. By preventing or reducing asthma attacks, individuals could be relieved of chronic asthma issues.
