15. Lowering LDL cholesterol and triglycerides
In a Mayo clinic article we find that the only known way cinnamon lowers cholesterol is by adjusting how the body processes sugar and fat. They sat that there is no direct effect on cholesterol. However that happens the end game is the point.
In an another study found cinnamon reduced triglyceride (23-30%), LDL cholesterol (7-27%), and total cholesterol (12-26%). On review in 2011 a study found the consumption of cinnamon is associated with a significant decrease in levels of total cholesterol, LDL-C, and triglyceride levels, while there was an increase in HDL-C (the good cholesterol) levels. They qualified it by saying that applying it to patient care is difficult.
Sometimes doctors, as with most all of us, are so attached to their worldview that they can not see what is is. I think it might be worth a try as an add on. In moderation what can it hurt.
16. E-coli Fighter/Salmonella
Cinnamon can be one of the most effective e-coli fighters remembering its antimicrobial properties. You might try mixing cinnamon oil with hydrogen peroxide and spraying down your cutting board and kitchen sink. Do not forget your refrigerator. This way of sanitizing is safe and natural.
A study found that a concentration of 2 microl/ml from cinnamon worked sufficiently to inactivate salmonella enteritidis, e-coli, and l-innocua in apple and pear juices and 8 and 10 microl/ml from cinnamon for melon juice and tryptone soy broth.
19. Tooth Decay and Gum Disease
Once more the antibacterial effects of cinnamon play a role in banishing harmful bacteria, and that without damaging your teeth or gums. It is why often cinnamon oil is added to chewing gums, mouthwashes, toothpaste and breath mints.
