Definitely! Joint health and the subsequent pain from joint inflammation and degeneration are significant problems, especially as people age and cartilage begins to wear. Over 24 million adults limit their physical activities because their joint pain prohibits their ability to do the things they love. In all, over 54 million people suffer from arthritis pain.
Cinnamon effectively helps to reduce joint pain by reducing inflammation. The flavonoids in cinnamon are responsible for their pain-relieving properties. A comparative study published in the March 2015 edition of Food & Function set out to determine whether Ceylon and cassia cinnamon were anti-inflammatory. Researchers found that cinnamaldehyde in higher concentrations effectively reduced inflammation in testing.

An analysis of 10 research trials showed that cinnamon lowered total cholesterol by an average of 15.60 mg/dL. It lowered LDL cholesterol by 9.42 mg/dL and triglycerides by 29.59 mg/dL. They also found that it raised HDL levels by 1.66mg/dL.
Cinnamon has proven benefits to help lower blood glucose levels with tremendous benefits to individuals struggling with fluctuating blood sugar worldwide. A review of research studies published in the December 2012 edition of Diabetic Medicine investigated the effects of Ceylon cinnamon through in-vitro and animal studies.
Researchers looked at 16 studies and found that it was effective at lowering blood glucose in these trials. The mechanism of action was through its ability to inhibit certain pancreatic enzymes, and it also stimulated an increase in glucose uptake by the cells. The trials also demonstrated efficacy in increasing healthy glucose metabolism and stimulating glycogen synthesis. Researchers also found that cinnamon inhibited gluconeogenesis while also improving the cells' sensitivity to insulin. The animal studies showed a positive effect on diabetes by increasing weight loss, lowering LDL cholesterol, and raising HDL cholesterol. They also experienced a decrease in fasting blood glucose and decreased hemoglobin A1C.
