Benefits Of Adding Cinnamon To Your Coffee
Let’s face it: coffee is bitter.
While there are some people who enjoy it that way — hey, to each their own — often times, we will find any way to mask the taste. We add creamer, milk, sugar, and even flavored syrups in order to receive the same great benefits from our magical, bitter bean water while still being able to tolerate the taste.
But there is one other flavor enhancer out there that might not be as well-known, but provides a lot more benefits than just taste.
Next time you brew your morning coffee and pour it into your unique LEXO travel mug, try adding a dash of cinnamon and see what happens. You just might have a new favorite drink!
Here are some of the top benefits of adding cinnamon to your coffee:
Obviously, this is a big one. Typically, flavor additives can come with some unwanted side effects, like a sugary aftertaste.
Cinnamon, on the other hand, doesn’t overcomplicate things — it provides a simple sweetener solution without having to worry about breaking your diet or consuming too much sugar.
Controlling Blood Sugar
Which brings us to our next key benefit, which is controlling high blood sugar. If you are one of those people who absolutely needs some type of sweetener in their coffee, but are on a limited sugar intake, then cinnamon can serve as the perfect alternative.
There are significantly less calories, no damaging sugary effects, and it can even prevent and soothe inflammation in some cases.
That means even diabetics can get their coffee fix whenever they need it most without having to resort to potentially harmful sugar alternatives.
One of the great byproducts of cinnamon is the all-natural, microscopic antioxidants it carries within its spiced-up molecules.
That not only means that cinnamon is extremely friendly for your diets, it also can mean an improved immune system. Compared to other foods that are high in antioxidants, a teaspoon of cinnamon ranks right up there with a half a cup of blueberries.
We all know that one of the biggest perks of drinking coffee is the jolt of energy that comes with the caffeine.
However, did you know you can possibly prevent the dreaded crash that sometimes comes from combining sugar with caffeine? With a dash of cinnamon in your coffee, you can help stabilize your energy levels (thanks to those lower blood sugar levels) and get longer-lasting energy to carry you throughout the day.
It’s Good For Ya!
Finally, cinnamon is actually one of the better spices you can take for your health. This magical substance not only helps your coffee taste great, but it is also packed with vitamins and nutrients that your body requires for optimal health.
Cinnamon is full of fiber, calcium, iron, and vitamin K — all essential parts of a well-balanced diet.
