Cinnamon May Hold Promise for Alzheimer’s Patients
I was listening to KNX-1070 in Los Angeles the other morning and I heard this news story that made me turn up the radio. The University of California Santa Barbara has been doing studies on the potential effects of compounds extracted from cinnamon on Alzheimer’s disease. The fascinating study shows that two compounds in cinnamon have been shown to reduce filamentous “tangles” found in the brain cells that characterize Alzheimer’s. It also cautions that people shouldn't rush right out to start eating too much cinnamon. But for those of us who appreciate it for its many positive qualities, it's confirmation of what we've trusted for generations: cinnamon is not just for toast and apple pie anymore! You can read the article here. Hopefully this study will lead to good news for sufferers of that destructive disease. If the window doesn't open up here, then search for "cinnamon study on alzheimer's" on google or bing and you can find a link to the UCSB study there.
