Cinnamon Might Help You to Burn Holiday Fat
A recent study from the University of Michigan finds that cinnamaldehyde, the compound giving cinnamon its flavor, may help you burn fat.
With the help of experiments, the scientists found that cinnamaldehyde has a direct effect on fat cells. In thermogenesis, this compound makes the adipocytes start burning fat that they had been storing.
The lead researcher Jun Wu, a research assistant professor at the Life Sciences Institute and an assistant professor of molecular and integrative psychology at the University of Michigan Medical School, says: “Cinnamon has been part of our diets for thousands of years, and people generally enjoy it […] So if it can help protect against obesity, too, it may offer an approach to metabolic health that is easier for patients to adhere to.”
