The Benefits of Cinnamon, and Ginger Cookie Recipe

Cinnamon is a sweet spice that is not only delicious in baked goods, but can help soothe a queasy stomach, may have a beneficial affect on blood sugar levels, and may help lower cholesterol. Keep in mind that cinnamon in large doses - that is, at dosage levels beyond what might normally be consumed in cinnamon-spiced foods - may be toxic. But there's no harm, and potentially a lot of good, in sprinkling cinnamon on your oatmeal, enjoying a cinnamon stick in your coffee, or using it in cooking.
