Antioxidant, Anti-inflammatory, and More: The Health Benefits of Cinnamon

Mary Villareal 
February 6th, 2022

Other than being a popular cooking and baking ingredient, cinnamon has been known for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. The distinct smell and flavor of cinnamon are from its oils, which are high in cinnamaldehyde – the compound responsible for the spice’s powerful effects on health and metabolism.

High in antioxidants

Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants that protect the body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. In a study that compared the antioxidant activity of 26 spices, cinnamon ranked highest, outperforming other common spices such as garlic and oregano.

Because the American diet is often processed and lacking in antioxidants, it could lead to a rise in inflammation. Over time, such inflammation can put a person at risk for chronic health conditions. Cinnamon contains a high number of polyphenols, which provide these antioxidant effects. These polyphenols protect tissues from oxidative stress and free radicals, preventing unwanted inflammatory responses from happening in the first place.

Has anti-inflammatory properties

Moreover, it has anti-inflammatory properties that help the body fight infections and repair tissue damage. A comparative study looked at two kinds of cinnamon to identify their most anti-inflammatory phytochemicals. Researchers found that e-cinnamaldehyde and 0-methoxy cinnamaldehyde are the most potent bioactive compounds.

The results also showed that cinnamon and its components could be useful to treat age-related inflammatory conditions if therapeutic concentrations are more closely targeted. (Related: Medicinal benefits of cinnamon.)

Lowers blood sugar levels

Blood sugar levels can rise quickly, especially for carbohydrate-dense diets. Dramatic fluctuations in blood sugar contribute to oxidative stress and cause inflammation, damaging the body’s cells and increasing the risk of chronic diseases. (Related: Spice up your life: Use cinnamon to improve your health.)

An old study conducted on a group of 60 men and women with type 2 diabetes saw that cinnamon could improve triglyceride, blood glucose, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and LDL cholesterol levels. After 40 days, researchers found a decrease in fasting serum glucose by 18 to 29 percent, triglyceride by 23 to 30 percent, LDL cholesterol by seven to 27 percent and total cholesterol by 12 to 26 percent.

Participants were divided into three groups, each taking one, three or six grams of cinnamon while on insulin therapy. All of them experienced reductions in their cholesterol numbers, which continued beyond the 40 days. No changes were seen in HDL cholesterol levels, but the results showed that taking cinnamon daily can reduce risk factors associated with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Consume in small amounts

Cinnamon is recognized as safe when consumed as a culinary spice in small amounts. Generally, no more than one teaspoon per day is considered to be safe for most adults, and lesser doses are recommended for children.

Remember that most of the cinnamon available for purchase in supermarkets is 0f the Cassia variety, which has a stronger taste and is more affordable. However, this variety is high in compounds called coumarins, which may be toxic in large doses.

Some countries in Europe set tolerable daily intake for coumarin. In Germany for instance, this is about 0.1 mg per kg of body weight. An average teaspoon of cinnamon weighs around 2.6 g, which means that each teaspoon of Cassia cinnamon contains about 6.9 to 18 mg of coumarin. At these levels, a single teaspoon per day could put people at risk for liver damage.

It is important to buy Ceylon or “true” cinnamon to gain the best health benefits. This type of cinnamon has lower levels of coumarins and may be better tolerated by people.

Frankincense: One of the Most Powerful Medicines from Mother Nature

Olivia Cook
February 1st, 2022

Frankincense has been used as a natural remedy by various cultures for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians used frankincense as an insect repellant, a perfume and a salve, while ancient Greeks and Romans used it as a remedy for various conditions. Natural healers in ancient China also used frankincense extensively.

Named after the French phrase “franc encens,” which means high-quality incense, frankincense has been used across many religions in prayers, rituals and ceremonies because of its sweet, spicy, woody scent. Practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine use frankincense to calm the mind and ease anxious feelings and restlessness. (Related: Frankincense: Nature’s psychoactive antidepressant.) 

Frankincense oil is extracted from the sap of five Boswellia tree species that can be found in Africa and the Middle East – Boswellia sacra, B. papyrifera, B. cartierii, B. frereana and B. serrata. The resin from these trees is left to harden upon exposure to air and is scraped off the tree after two weeks and stored for another 12 weeks so that it hardens further. Frankincense can be used dry and burned on hot coals as incense. It can also be steamed to make essential oil.

The main chemical constituents of frankincense essential oil are limonene, pinene, borneol, farnesol, phellandrene and myrcene.

Limonene demonstrates antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. Pinene is known to strengthen and invigorate the respiratory system. Borneol contributes tonic, anesthetic, sedative and anti-spasmodic properties to this oil. Farnesol is the component that allows frankincense oil to reduce signs of aging by smoothing the look of wrinkles and increasing the skin’s elasticity.

Dubbed as the “king of essential oils,” frankincense oil continues to be popular today among practitioners in aromatherapy and naturopathy – two forms of alternative medicine that apply the components of essential oils to treat different medical conditions. They are also used to improve hair and skin health and overall well-being when applied topically or through inhalation. 

When applied to the skin, the boswellic acid in frankincense oil get absorbed. When inhaled through the nose or mouth, frankincense oil is put in diffusers so you can feel the effect much faster than topical application. Frankincense oil can also be ingested but only under the guidance of a trained practitioner in natural medicine.

Health benefits of frankincense

Supports a healthy musculoskeletal system

Frankincense is an anti-inflammatory substance, which may help ease the pain and symptoms of arthritis. (Related: Got arthritis pain? Try frankincense.)

Studies on the components of frankincense show that the acids from the Boswellia sap can prevent the release of leukotrienes, which are inflammatory substances. Animal studies found that frankincense inhibited the synthesis of inflammatory enzymes.

Research on the efficacy and tolerability of frankincense oil in the treatment of osteoarthritis has shown that frankincense has been more effective than placebos when it comes to managing swelling, pain and joint movement associated with arthritis.

Other studies concluded that frankincense oil can help ease morning stiffness and can help reduce reliance on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that are widely used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and bring down a high temperature. (Related: The therapeutic power of Indian frankincense for multiple sclerosis patients.)

Frankincense oil can be used topically on inflamed muscles and joints, as well as orally under the guidance of a trained practitioner in natural medicine.

Supports a healthy digestive system

Frankincense oil can help improve gut health, digestion, and ease digestive disorders, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. 

A study on the therapy of active Crohn disease with frankincense extract concluded that in terms of a benefit-risk evaluation (considering both safety and efficacy), frankincense appeared to be superior to mesalazine, a medically prescribed drug to treat Crohn’s symptoms. 

In the same study, researchers also found that frankincense was as effective as pharmaceutical drugs at managing ulcerative colitis after patients suffering from that condition were given a daily dose of frankincense for six weeks. 

Supports a healthy respiratory system

Frankincense oil can help manage asthma and bronchitis. On a cellular level, asthma is linked to cells that are related to inflammation, whereas bronchitis is linked to cells involved in fighting infection. Bronchitis can happen even if you don’t have asthma. But asthma can increase your chances of developing bronchitis. Asthmatic bronchitis is bronchitis that happens as a result of asthma.

In a six-week clinical study on the effects of frankincense gum resin in patients with bronchial asthma, 70 percent of participants who were given a supplement containing extracts of frankincense gum resin and the bael fruit had an easier time breathing and experienced fewer asthma attacks. Researchers found the combination of frankincense and the bael fruit to be more effective than the placebo at easing symptoms of asthma.

Supports a healthy lymphatic system

The lymphatic system normally helps trap and destroy cancer cells, as well as bacteria and other harmful organisms. Sometimes, cancer cells get trapped in lymph nodes close to the cancer and may start to grow there. (Related: Frankincense (tree sap) may be a cure for cancer.)

Based on the results of a study about bladder transitional carcinoma, frankincense oil can distinguish cancer cells from normal cells. By activating a gene that plays a role in cell growth suppression and cell cycle arrest without inducing DNA fragmentation, frankincense oil can suppress the viability of cancer cells and may even fight against certain types of cancer.

According to test tube studies, frankincense may help fight against and repress these cancers: brain tumors; breast, ovarian and skin cancers, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, colon cancer and melanoma. (Related: Frankincense’s cellular healing power is a powerful solution for many types of cancer.) 

Supports good oral health

Frankincense can help maintain good oral health because of its antibacterial nature. 

A present study describes the antimicrobial activities of boswellic acid molecules against oral cavity pathogens. The boswellic acids (acetyl-11-keto-ß-boswellic acid or AKBA) can help prevent cavity formation by killing bacteria. AKBA has been proven to treat bad breath and help ward off gum disease, infections and toothaches.

One test-tube study found that frankincense extract was effective against Agrregatibacter actinomycetemcomitansa bacteria that causes gum disease. As frankincense is naturally astringent, another randomized clinical trial on participants with plaque-induced gingivitis showed that it can help heal mouth sores associated with poor oral health.

Supports skin health

Together with its antibacterial, antiseptic and antioxidant qualities, frankincense is among the most powerful essential oils. It protects the skin by reducing inflammation and negating the effect of free radicals generated by unhealthy diets, lack of exercise, environmental pollutants and exposure to harmful electromagnetic fields.

Frankincense oil has become a popular ingredient in skincare products that help with the rejuvenation of the skin, keeping skin cells strong and plump and maintaining elasticity. It also has moisturizing properties that keep the skin from drying out.

Frankincense oil is a natural astringent that can help get rid of skin imperfections and conditions like acne and wounds. As a healing oil, frankincense is used topically for reducing the appearance of age spots, stretch marks and scars. In addition to being antibacterial, frankincense oil helps prevent clogged pores and spots by reducing sebum production in individuals with oily skin.

Given all these amazing health benefits and healthy uses, frankincense certainly offers the invaluable gift of healing.

Editors of The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine: Pharmaceutical Companies are so Financially Powerful They Pressure us to Accept Papers

Staff Writer,
June 14th, 2020

In a videotaped interview on May 24, 2020, Dr. Douste-Blazy provided insight into how a series of negative hydroxychloroquine studies got published in prestigious medical journals.

Philippe Douste-Blazy, MD, a cardiologist and former French Health Minister who served as Under-Secretary General of the United Nations; he was a candidate in 2017 for Director of the World Health Organization.

He revealed that at a recent Chatham House top secret, closed door meeting attended by experts only, the editors of both, The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine expressed their exasperation citing the pressures put on them by pharmaceutical companies.

He states that each of the editors used the word “criminal” to describe the erosion of science.

He quotes Dr. Richard Horton who bemoaned the current state of science:

“If this continues, we are not going to be able to publish any more clinical research data because pharmaceutical companies are so financially powerful; they are able to pressure us to accept papers that are apparently methodologically perfect, but their conclusion is what pharmaceutical companies want.”

Dr. Douste-Blazy supports the combination treatment – hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and azithromycin (AZ) for Covid-19 recommended by Dr. Didier Raoult. In April, 2020

Dr. Douste-Blazy started a petition that has been signed by almost 500,000 French doctors and citizens urging French government officials to permit physicians to prescribe hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus patients early, before they require intensive care.

The issue has become highly politicized; the left-leaning politicians and public health officials are adamantly against the use of HCQ, whereas those leaning toward the right politically are for the right of doctors to prescribe the drug as they see fit.

The journal SCIENCE described the response to French President Emmanuel Macron trip to Marseille to meet Dr. Raoult who prescribes the combination drug regimen and he has documented their effectiveness.

However, public health officials, academic physicians and the media – all of who are financially indebted to pharmaceutical companies and their high profit marketing objectives – vehemently oppose the use of HCQ, and use every opportunity to disparage the drug by derisively referring to President Trump as its booster.

John Stone, UK Editor of Age of Autism, posted the following today.

British Prime Minister Channels Churchill As He Surrenders To Gates And The Vaccine Cartel

This is the moment of national humiliation that we somehow did not see on our television sets last night: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson surrendering to Bill Gates and the vaccine cartel, GAVI, hailed by him as the new NATO – while he speaks from a nation on its knees like Vichy France.

While British news after months of wall to wall Coronavirus suddenly, mysteriously became obsessed with the 13 year old saga of Madeleine McCann almost no one saw Johnson’s insipid, but rhetorically overblown speech at the end of the global summit he hosted in London yesterday and chaired with Gates.

No one knew when they were electing Johnson that they were electing Gates.

and putting the vaccine industry at the heart of the British nation’s future. It was particularly galling to see him extol the already failed Oxford COVID vaccine as an example of British innovation.

This is presumably where we were headed from the moment lockdown was announced.

The meeting elicited a short mention at the end of the BBC 10 o’clock news and was not mentioned on the front pages of any of the national newspapers this morning.

Bill Gates Reduce Population

If GAVI is the new NATO, and the focus of British national destiny perhaps the moment should not have been news managed out of existence.

Now everything that our lives were worth has to be surrendered in an endless war against disease long ago devised by Mr Gates.

In Gates’s brave new world everyone will have to have vaccines like computer patches every five minutes, and when they don’t work – if we are still standing – we will have to have another.
