The exotic spice is known to have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and has been used in Chinese medicine to treat colds, indigestion and colic.
Now, Australian researchers found cinnamon reduces stomach temperature to two degrees which helps digestion.
This prevents damage to the stomach linings, reducing inflammation and many diseases of the intestines.
This discovery could explain why rust-colored spice of a tree bark is so popular in hot countries.
study investigator Dr. Jian Zhen ou School of Engineering RMIT University in Melbourne, said: “Together, cinnamon cools the stomach by a maximum of 2 degrees Celsius
. ” No cinnamon wonder is so popular in warm regions like taking makes people feel better and gives a cooling sensation. “
Research published in scientific reports was conducted in pigs as part of a larger RMIT health of the intestine using capsules sensors ingestible gas or smart pills studio.
stomach gas fermentation are linked to a series gastrointestinal disorders such as ulcers, related tumors, disease inflammatory bowel and symptoms of irritable bowel disease.
still gastroenterologists are still unable to differentiate between some of the most common disorders of the gut and therefore the .. patients misdiagnose
the capsule of the gas sensor has been developed to address this issue
Professor Kourosh Kalantar-Zadeh said: “the gases bowel are the byproduct of the fermentation process during digestion, affected by the state of the intestine and therefore may provide the necessary information regarding. gut health “
added results seemed to indicate that cinnamon maintains the integrity of the stomach wall
He said,”. When pigs feed at room temperature, carbon dioxide gas in your stomach increases.
“Cinnamon in their feeding reduces this gas by decreasing the secretion of gastric acid and pepsin of the stomach wall, which in turn cools the stomachs of pigs during digestion.
“When pigs are hot, hyperventilation, which reduces the production of CO2. Treatment cinnamon, CO2 decreases further.
“This not only cools the pigs, but leads to a significant improvement in their overall health.”
“Supplemental cinnamon is chosen as representative therapeutic agent due its anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant properties and free radical scavenging in the gastrointestinal tract.
properties “These Characterized advantageous to this species ideal for maintaining normal digestive functions and integrity of candidate the intestinal barrier under heat stress condition, while at the same time have relatively minor adverse effects that cause minimal disruption in the intestinal microbial community. “
