I love cinnamon - and put a tiny sprinkle of Saigon cinnamon on top of the coffee grounds along with a small dash of sea salt and single drop of vanilla to start my day off with one of my indulgences. Yeah, I know, caffeine - yippee, just what I need with back pain . . .. I guess we we won't even mention the hazlenut/biscotti creamer. On the other hand, I do add organic goats milk and a teaspoon or less of organic blackstrap molasses along with organic honey.
Cinnamon has many health qualities, but it does however have the tendency to decrease male libido. Not something I have personally noticed or had a problem with (ahem), but it has certainly been reported fairly widely. On the other hand, one of our favorite herbal substances, oleander, often has just the opposite effect. Like cinnnamon, It is also often quite effective against both diabetes and arthritis.
Maybe that is why I haven't noticed any "dampening" effects from the cinnamon. Then again, maybe it is those new floral undies Luella bought . . . .
