Health Benefits of Cinnamon Tea
i. Bad cholesterol levels too high? Lower your cholesterol - and protect your heart health - with cinnamon tea. Research tells us that consuming cinnamon tea may help lower bad cholesterol levels.
ii. Cinnamon has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. Cinnamon fights viruses (such as cold and flu viruses), inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria (like E. coli or the bacteria that causes UTIs), and combats infections (such as medication-resistant yeast infections caused by the fungus Candida albicans).
iii. Cinnamon is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.
Chronic inflammation has been linked to many health concerns and harmful diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, cancer, diabetes, infertility, obesity, PCOS, IBS, Crohn's, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Cinnamon tea is a natural, tasty way to fight and protect against the potentially destructive effects of inflammation.
iv. Cinnamon is filled with potent antioxidants - more than almost all other spices and herbs. Cinnamon's antioxidant levels are comparable with other high-antioxidant foods, as well - for example, just one teaspoon of ground cinnamon has as many antioxidants as 1/2 cup of blueberries! It's essential that we include antioxidant-rich foods and beverages in our diet, because antioxidants provide us with so many health benefits... They protect us from the effects of free radicals, prevent and fight chronic diseases (like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis), and reduce those signs of aging we dislike so much (like wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity)!
v. Cinnamon improves circulation. Poor circulation can affect the body in all sorts of ways, from varicose veins to constipation to painful joints. Cinnamon tea is naturally warming and helps to increase blood flow. Cinnamon is a natural blood thinner as well.
vi. Reduce swelling and the aches and pains of arthritis and rheumatism with a soothing cup of cinnamon tea.
vii. Cinnamon tea's reputation as a weight-loss tea is growing - with good reason. Not only do the antioxidants in cinnamon boost metabolism, but cinnamon also helps your digestive tract work the way it should (essential for weight loss - and for feeling good, too!).
viii. Cinnamon tea stabilizes blood sugar levels, so you feel satiated and have fewer cravings. Another benefit - cinnamon is a flavorful addition to your diet and, when your food tastes good, you'll feel satisfied sooner and eat less (meaning fewer calories going in!)
ix. Ward off a chill with cinnamon tea. Are your hands and feet always cold? Does a brisk, chilly wind have you burying your icy nose behind a scarf? There's nothing like cinnamon tea to warm you when you feel chilled!**Some General Precautions for Cinnamon Tea**
Very high quantities of cinnamon may be toxic, so, as a general rule, it's best not to consume excessive amounts of cinnamon tea for extended periods of time. The NCCAM (National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine) indicates that cinnamon is generally safe for most people in amounts of up to 6 grams of cinnamon daily for 6 weeks or less.

Herbal teas with light, delicate blossoms or leaves require somewhat shorter steeping times and lower temperatures than other heartier herbs. We recommend using 1 - 2 teaspoons of leaf or 1 tea bag per 6 – 8 oz of near boiling water (180 to 200 F) and steeping 3 to 5 minutes.
This provides a sweeter, better tasting brew while repeated infusions allow you to extract all the nutritional and medicinal benefits from the herb.Herbal teas can be brewed in porcelain, ceramic, glass, or stainless steel but never in aluminum or other harmful materials. Be sure to cover the cup or teapot while steeping to prevent the loss of fragrant essential oils and other therapeutic and nutritional elements.
Shelf Life: Our products will maintain their freshness and integrity for up to 12 months after purchase. Store in a cool dark place to ensure full shelf life.
