Cinnamon and Arthritis

By Ceylon-Cinnamon | 26th January 2017

What is Arthritis?

By the dictionary definition, Arthritis is a disease causing painful inflammation and stiffness of the joints. Often considered as a very common condition in old age, arthritis is highly misunderstood. Arthritis can occur in any age and is not particularly an old age disease. Also, there are over 100 types of Arthritis.

Arthritis causes inflammation in joints, swelling, stiffness, and a decreased range of motion.

Cinnamon as a medicinal agent

Cinnamon is a popular spice all across the world. Real Cinnamon is indigenous to Sri Lanka formally known as Ceylon. Cinnamon is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. While cinnamon is highly useful in controlling diabetes, it is also known to have numerous uses. For centuries, Cinnamon has been used in ancient Ayurveda.

Cinnamon and Arthritis

Inflammation is a part of the symptoms of arthritis. Consuming real Ceylon Cinnamon helps relieve the pain and inflammation caused by arthritis. Though Cinnamon cannot cure arthritis, it definitely acts as a pain relief agent.

Having said that, a study by Japanese scientists suggests that true cinnamon reduces the activity of overactive osteoclasts. If you are wondering what that means, heres an explanation:

In a few types of arthritis, your bones undergo an unnatural loss of bones at your joints. This loss of bones is triggered by overactive osteoclasts, which are cells. This loss of bone leads to pain and deformity that acts as the symptoms of arthritis.

If cinnamon reduces the activity of overactive osteoclasts, it definitely acts as an agent that prevents further damage caused by arthritis.
