Cinnamon has been utilized to support digestive health for centuries. Cinnamon’s warm and sweet aroma and taste not only adds great depth to food, it can also help settle upset stomachs and bloating. One of the ways it is thought to work is by promoting healthy blood flow to the stomach. Also, it may help the stomach empty after meals. It is also being investigated as a possible way to assist with blood sugar control.*
