Interesting study using ground Cinnamon. Ceylon Cinnamon is Purer than the Chinese variety..
Posted as it may improve stupid but I did not want to headline with that.
I had better start using Ha.

Cinnamon is a delicious addition to toast, coffee and breakfast rolls. Eating the tasty household spice also might improve learning ability, according to new study results published online in the July issue of the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology. The study by neurological scientists at Rush University Medical Center found that feeding cinnamon to laboratory mice determined to have poor learning ability made the mice better learners. "This would be one of the safest and the easiest approaches to convert poor learners to good learners," said Kalipada Pahan, PhD, the lead researcher of the study and the Floyd A. Davis Professor of Neurology at Rush. Some people are born naturally good learners, some become good learners by effort, and some find it hard to learn new tasks even with effort. Little is known about the neurological processes that cause someone to be a poor learner and how to improve performance in poor learners. "Understanding brain mechanisms that lead to poor learning is important to developing effective strategies to improve memory and learning ability," Pahan said.

Cinnamon may be used to halt the progression of Parkinson's disease. This was published in 2014.

Neurological scientists at Rush University Medical Center have found that using cinnamon, a common food spice and flavoring material, can reverse the biomechanical, cellular and anatomical changes that occur in the brains of mice with Parkinson's disease (PD). The results of the study were recently published in the June 20 issue of the Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology.

The study found that after oral feeding, ground cinnamon is metabolized into sodium benzoate, which then enters into the brain, stops the loss of Parkin and DJ-1, protects neurons, normalizes neurotransmitter levels, and improves motor functions in mice with PD.

Very interesting study, however, it only worked in mice, not humans. We have to wait for the clinical trials to see how it works with us, in vivo. But there has been previous research.

A cross sectional study in 2015 found that elderly people (60 and over) who consumed cinnamon daily had a higher working memory. However, the study was small and cinnamon users also used many other spices, like fresh ginger, for example.

I love cinnamon with my rice pudding!

Stop eating your jizz and it won't affect your life in any way.

I like a good cinnamon roll occasionally and also like a good cinnamon toast dunked in my coffee occasionally. cinnamon and sugar on apples tastes great too. Why would anyone take a pill that you can't even taste? Why would anyone eat cinnamon without a little sugar, sugar is an adjuvant for stuff like that. It increases the uptake of the cinnamon.

Some cinnamons are high in B6, this neutralises homocysteine which is bad for the brain

and I can't remember the exact wording of this so this is rough, B6 combines with B9 and B12 to make something like a million new brain cells or some type of process in the brain a second, although I can't remember for sure what it contributes to as it was about 2 years ago that I read about this but it is along those lines
I must start taking B6 B9 and B12 hey

Yes, you can add it to the hair mask and your hair would be much stronger, and as well be lighter ona shade or two. It's good for the insight and out, take a cinnamon tea or just a cinnamon in a water every day and your immune system would say thank you.
