Cinnamon is an excellent source of manganese, dietary fiber, iron and calcium. All nutrients combine to collect bile salts and remove them from the body, which are responsible for damaging colon cells and increasing the risk of developing colon cancer. Apart from the flavoring that cinnamon adds to your food, it acts as a good digestive tonic. It is best effective for curing indigestion, nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, diarrhea, acidity, morning sickness and flatulence. Cinnamon is known to possess anti-clotting properties which help in remedying uterine bleeding. It inhibits a substance called thromboxane A2, responsible for causing blood clots, which reduces blood clotting and promotes a regular blood flow. As a result, uterine bleeding is reduced or stopped by stimulating the blood flow away from the uterus.
