Sri Lanka cinnamon helps prevent heart attacks reports American Heart Association

One of the UK’s top daily newspapers reports that Sri Lanka’s most world-renowned spice may be key to preventing heart attacks—cinnamon.

The Daily Express says that “heart disease risk could be reduced with a daily dose of cinnamon—which could reverse the effects of a high-fat diet and prevent heart attacks, a study has revealed”.

The study, presented at the American Heart Association’s Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology, suggests that cinnamon may lessen the risk of cardiovascular damage.

Experts said it can activate the body’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory systems and slow the fat-storing process for the world’s biggest killer, which claims 17.5 million lives annually.

They have previously found cinnamon can improve your learning ability by reversing changes that occur in the brains of those with poor learning by stimulating the hippocampus, a small part in the brain that generates, organises and stores memory.

The British Heart Foundation says: “A healthy diet can help reduce your risk of developing coronary heart disease and stop you gaining weight, reducing your risk of diabetes and high blood pressure.”
