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.
