Spices 101: Cinnamon

Spices 101: Cinnamon

We all have the power to turn our everyday food into superfood: just add spice.

Spices have been a hot commodity for thousands of years. Literally. At times, salt has ranked more valuable than gold. Cultures all over the world have turned to dried seeds and roots, cracked, ground, or cooked whole, to preserve their foods, strengthen their reserves, and nourish and heal their bodies.

At Countertop, we use the power of spices like turmeric, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, black pepper, asafoetida, cloves, and more, to help you cook delicious food with maximum health in minimum time.

Why we love Cinnamon

Cinnamon. Think of sweet, warming Cinnamon like the spice version of your knight in shining armor. Not only is cinnamon full of delicious flavor, but it is packed full of benefits that will have you feeling on your A-game. We like to call cinnamon “The Equalizer” because it’s true superpower is keeping blood sugar levels in check. This in turn helps to lower the chances of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, muscle aches, and digestive issues.

Cinnamon is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antibacterial. It also reduces “bad” cholesterol and keeps the good cholesterol stable, and improves digestion and gut health, sensitivity to insulin, and metabolism. And it doesn’t stop there. Cinnamon helps protect neurons in the brain, and protects against neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.

Many of our products have cinnamon, so adding in a pinch of Chai here and a dash Golden Breakfast there to meals can help keep you going strong from breakfast to dinner.

 

Countertop is passionate about helping you cook with maximum health in minimum time. Our products re-imagine everyday staples like butter, sweetener, and seasonings into minimally processed, easy to use, outrageously delicious superfood blends that turn the foods you already love into foods your body will love you for.
