As a Certified Health Coach, I have a strong interest in how food can be medicinal as well as taste good. I’ve written many articles on a variety of herbs and their uses and benefits. Here’s what I use and where I get them. Because herbs can produce side effects and interact with other drugs and natural treatments, consult your healthcare provider before using any of these.
Note: Ceylon Cinnamon is the finest medicinal cinnamon on the planet. Research has shown that it may lower your blood glucose levels, is anti-microbial, may help with cancer, Alzheimer’s and is an anti-inflammatory. Ceylon cinnamon is typically more expensive than any of the cassia versions, and it is also the cinnamon more closely associated with potential health benefits involving blood sugar regulation. So, I use 1 Tsp every day in a homemade tea with 1 Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar and raw local honey.
Note: I choose this brand because it’s country of origin, India and its high purity, aroma, and great taste. Make your own turmeric capsules or for cooking. It contains NO salt, NO MSG, NO GMO, NO Ethylene Oxide (ETO) treatment, NON-Irradiated. It’s all Natural, No Artificial Colors, Flavors or Preservatives. All of that is important.
