10 Health Benefits of Cinnamon



Cinnamon is a highly delicious spice.

It has been prized for its medicinal properties for thousands of years.

Modern science has now confirmed what people have known for ages.

Here are 10 health benefits of cinnamon that are supported by scientific research.
1. Cinnamon Is High in a Substance With Powerful Medicinal Properties

Cinnamon is a spice that is made from the inner bark of trees scientifically known as Cinnamomum.

It has been used as an ingredient throughout history, dating back as far as Ancient Egypt. It used to be rare and valuable and was regarded as a gift fit for kings.

These days, cinnamon is cheap, available in every supermarket and found as an ingredient in various foods and recipes.

There are two main types of cinnamon (1):

    Ceylon cinnamon: Also known as "true" cinnamon.
    Cassia cinnamon: The more common variety today and what people generally refer to as "cinnamon."

Cinnamon is made by cutting the stems of cinnamon trees. The inner bark is then extracted and the woody parts removed.

When it dries, it forms strips that curl into rolls, called cinnamon sticks. These sticks can be ground to form cinnamon powder.

The distinct smell and flavor of cinnamon are due to the oily part, which is very high in the compound cinnamaldehyde (2).

Scientists believe that this compound is responsible for most of cinnamon's powerful effects on health and metabolism.

    Summary
    Cinnamon is a popular spice. It’s high in cinnamaldehyde, which is thought to be responsible for most of cinnamon’s health benefits.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHERRY: THE AFRICAN STAR APPLE

by Fr Anselm Adodo



The African star apple, locally called Cherry, is in full bloom. You can see the fruits on sales along the highways and roadsides all over the country, especially in the Southern part of Nigeria. Cherry, botanically called Chrysophyllum albidum, belongs to the family of Sapotaceae.

It is popularly called Udara in Igbo, Agbalumo in Yoruba, and Otien in Edo. While many find the taste unpleasant, some find the sticky nature of the inner pulp of the fruit unappealing. The health benefits of cherry are what makes it difficult to ignore. Compared with other fruits, cherry is among the healthiest fruits available.
 
Cherry is a good source of calcium providing about 10% of the amount needed by the body. Calcium lends strength to the bones and teeth, and it may also lessen symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.

What Does Soursop Do For Your Body?



Soursop contains numerous phytonutrients that can fight disease-causing cells and even certain kinds of tumors. These phytonutrients contain antioxidant properties that enhance the overall health. They help fight cancer, enhance eye health, and treat a range of infections (1).

But why are we talking about all this? Is soursop that good a fruit?

*Health Benefits Of Soursop*

Now, let’s take a closer look at some of the many soursop benefits. know closely what is soursop good for.



Though there haven’t been any direct studies on humans, soursop extracts were found to kill certain types of breast and liver cancer cells (2).

According to one study, the soursop plant is a proven cancer remedy for most types of the disease (3). Though the tests haven’t been conducted on humans yet, the possibilities are promising.
[06/01 1:02 PM] ‪+234 802 946 1925‬: In another Indian study conducted on various cell lines, soursop or graviola leaves showed 80% cell inhibition. The acetogenins in soursop inhibit the harmful compounds in cancer cells (4).

Soursop extract had also inhibited the survival and metabolism of pancreatic cancer cells – and this indicates potential success in curing the lethal disease (5).

What possibly makes acetogenins unique is their ability to selectively destroy the cancer cells, without harming the healthy ones (6).

*2. Improves Eye Health*

We have seen soursop is replete with antioxidants. These antioxidants, especially vitamins C and E, zinc, and beta-carotene, have been found to decrease the risk of eye disease. The antioxidants also reduce oxidative stress, which can otherwise cause cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (7).

*3. Helps Fight Inflammation*

In a Brazilian study, inflammation caused by snakebite was found to improve with the administration of soursop leave and juice (8). However, the components of soursop might also slightly aggravate the ill effects of snake venom – hence, we need more research in this aspect.

Research in South America and tropical Africa had emphasized on the anti-inflammatory properties of the roots, barks, and leaves of the soursop tree (9). The ability to treat inflammation is good in soursop, and it can be used for relieving arthritis.
In addition to the anti-inflammatory effect, soursop is also known for its analgesic effects (10).
[06/01 1:16 PM] ‪+234 802 946 1925‬: *4. Helps Treat Infections*

Soursop can treat infections caused by bacteria and parasites, one of those being leishmaniasis, a disease caused by parasites that are transmitted through the bites of sand fleas (11).
The leaves of the soursop tree are also used to treat a wide range of infections (12).

*5. Soursop Aids Diabetes Treatment*

According to a Nigerian study, soursop possesses anti-diabetic properties. The two groups of rats tested in the study had a significant difference in their blood glucose concentrations, with the group treated by soursop having lower concentrations than the other (13).

The soursop leaf aqueous extract was found to inhibit (and even prevent) the hepatic oxidative damage caused in diabetes patients (14).

*6. Boosts Kidney And Liver Health*

As per one Malaysian study, soursop extract was found to be safe in rats that were being treated for kidney and liver ailments (15). Similar observations could be observed in humans as well.
According to another Indian study, the acetogenins in soursop can kill the malignant cells of 12 types of cancer, with liver cancer being one of them (16).
[06/01 6:23 PM] ‪+234 802 946 1925‬: *7. Improves Respiratory Health*

One Nigerian study states the efficacy of soursop leaves in  treating respiratory conditions like asthma (17).

*8. Helps Relieve Stress*

As per a report by the University of Connecticut, soursop can be used extensively for the treatment of stress and other issues like depression (18).

*9. Enhances Gastrointestinal Health*

Soursop is also found to have antiulcer properties. The fruit suppresses oxidative damage and preserves the mucus of the gastric wall (19). The significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of the fruit can help improve gastrointestinal health.

In one Brazilian study, the anthelmintic (the ability to kill parasites) properties of soursop leaf extract were studied (20). They studied the effects of a parasitic worm that caused gastrointestinal issues in sheep. The objective of the study was to inspect the effects of soursop towards the eggs and adult forms of the parasite. The study concluded that soursop is a natural anthelmintic, and since it could kill the parasites in sheep that caused them gastrointestinal issues, it might have similar effects in humans. More research is going on, though.

As per another report, excessive doses of oral iron can lead to gastrointestinal issues. Though soursop is a source of iron, the mineral content in the fruit is not as much as other ingredients – hence, it is unlikely to cause gastrointestinal distress. The same fact, again, could work for the benefit of the individual. For instance, an individual suffering from iron deficiency can be susceptible to anemia, which is known to cause dysfunction of the gastrointestinal system. Though soursop is not an excellent source of iron, it does contain iron – and hence can be a healthy addition to an iron-rich diet to combat anemia (and the resultant gastrointestinal problems)Health
[06/01 6:31 PM] ‪+234 802 946 1925‬: *10. Boosts The Immune System*

A Korean study states that the intake of soursop can enhance immunity. This can be attributed to the bioactive compounds in the fruit. Oral intake of soursop leaf extracts was found to reduce edema in rat paws, which is usually caused due to a weak immune system (22). The study concludes by stating that soursop leaf extract has the potential to stimulate immunity, and hence can be used in the treatment of immunocompromised patients. Soursop can also be made a part of the diet to improve the overall lifestyle quality.

The juice of the soursop fruit was found to provide more micronutrients than its pulp. But the pulp has more amount of vitamin A  than the juice. Soursop is also rich in ascorbic acid (vitamin C) that strengthens and boosts the immune system (23). Beta-carotene, the precursor of vitamin A, also contributes to an enhanced immune system.

Another report published in a journal by The University of West Indies talks about a study where patients with different forms of cancer were given different foods, soursop being one of them. The objective of the experiment, as stated in the report, was to enhance the immune system of the patients (24).

*11. Relieves Pain (Works As An Analgesic)*

According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, soursop can work as an analgesic. The mice used in the study were made to writhe, post which the soursop extract was induced in them. The experiment produced desirable results (25).

*12. Soursop Treats Fever*

The soursop fruit has been traditionally used to treat fever. In Africa, a decoction of soursop leaves is used to control feverish symptoms and convulsive seizures. In fact, the larvae of the Aedes aegypti mosquito (which transmit dengue fever), showed great vulnerability towards soursop extract (26).

As per an Indian study, the soursop fruit and its juice can not only treat fever, but also act as an astringent for diarrhea and dysentery (27). The fruit can help treat fever in children as well; soursop is widely used for this purpose in Africa (28).
[06/01 6:36 PM] ‪+234 802 946 1925‬: *13. Treats Diarrhea*

All parts of the soursop tree are used as medicine for an array of ailments. And diarrhea is one of them.

[ Read: Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Diarrhea ]

*14. Aids In The Treatment Of Hypertension*

Soursop has been used in folklore for treating hypertension. This can be attributed to the antioxidant potential of phenols in the fruit, according to a Nigerian study (29).

As per an Indonesian study report, soursop contains good nutrients that can help lower blood pressure levels in human adults (30).

*15. Helps Treat Rheumatism*

According to studies, the internal administration of soursop leaf decoction was found to exhibit anti-rheumatic properties. And the leaves, when cooked and topically applied, helped ease rheumatism and abscesses (31).

In Africa, the unripe fruit of soursop is used to treat rheumatism and arthritic pain (32). Even the mashed leaves of the soursop tree are used as a poultice to treat rheumatism.

Soursop also contains anthocyanins, tannins, and alkaloids that exhibit anti-rheumatic effects.
[06/01 6:43 PM] ‪+234 802 946 1925‬: *16. Improves Skin And Hair Healthave*

As per a report published in the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the extract of soursop leaves can help prevent skin papilloma, a disease that causes tumor eruptions on the skin (33).

In fact, soursop is so good for the skin that the leaves of the plant are used for calming the skin of babies (34). Certain sources also suggest soursop paste can work wonders for hair – by treating dandruff and itching, and strengthening hair as well. But we need more research on this.

So, now you know what the benefits of soursop are. And now, we proceed to something as important – the nutritional profile.

Aloe vera is a succulent cactus plant species of the genus aloe, belonging to the family Liliaceae. It is widely known as “the Miracle plant” for its various medical, cosmetic and nutraceutical purposes. Aloe vera gel is a slick substance that is extracted from the interior of the aloe vera leaf, while latex refers to the yellow part which lies beneath the leaf skin. It grows in wild tropical climates around the world and it is cultivated for agricultural and medicinal use.

 

Aloe vera is a thick, short-stemmed plant that stores water in its leaves.

It is widely used in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries, and has an estimated annual market value of $13bn globally. Aloe vera is well recognised by its thick, pointed and fleshy green leaves, which can grow to about 12-19 inches (30-50 cm) in length.

Each leaf is full of a slimy tissue that stores water, which makes the leaves thick. This slimy, water-filled tissue is the “gel” we associate with aloe vera products.
