The Benefits of Cinnamon Tea go far beyond Its Soothing, Exotic Taste! 

You can enjoy the many benefits of cinnamon tea whether you love a pure cinnamon tea or prefer it blended or added to other teas. Sweet, soothing, spicy, and a little bit exotic... Cinnamon is versatile and much-loved, a favorite not only in sweet and savory dishes, but in tea, as well!

The well-known spice is famous for its ease in blending with a variety of flavors - with other teas, spices, fruits, and herbs - to create intoxicating tea blends.

Cinnamon tea is chock full of good things - for your body, your mind, and even for romance!

Health Benefits of Cinnamon Tea

  • Cinnamon has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. Cinnamon may help to fight viruses (such as cold and flu viruses), inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria (like E. coli or the bacteria that causes UTIs), and combat infections (such as medication-resistant yeast infections caused by the fungus Candida albicans).

  • Cinnamon is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. Chronic inflammation has been linked to many health concerns and harmful diseases, such as Alzheimer's, obesity, PCOS, IBS, Crohn's, osteoporosis, and heart disease. Cinnamon tea is a natural, tasty way to help in protecting against the potentially destructive effects of inflammation.
Benefits of cinnamon tea
  • 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, help to prevent and fight chronic diseases, and reduce those signs of aging we dislike so much (like wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity).
  • Cinnamon may support healthy 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 may help to improve blood flow. 

Cinnamon Tea Side Effects

  • Reduce swelling and the aches and pains of arthritis and rheumatism with a soothing cup of cinnamon tea.
  • 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!). Cinnamon tea can help 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!). Click here to learn more about cinnamon tea and weight loss.
  • 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!
