On October 4th, we are treated to a Scandinavian pastry on National Cinnamon Bun Day.


A yeasty dough with sugar and cinnamon is mixed in this warm bun swirls. It's comforts on chilly fall days, whether it's served with coffee or tea and enjoyed with a good book, a friend, or a dance party (don't judge).

Despite all the sugar in the recipes, cinnamon has numerous health benefits. Since it's packed with antioxidants, it shields cells from the free radicals that may play a role in heart disease and cancer.

In addition, it helps reduce inflammation. Cinnamon may lessen or help fight infections as well. These properties are also beneficial to antioxidants.

Another benefit is to reduce heart disease risk by lowering blood pressure, bad cholesterol, and triglycerides.

How affects blood sugar is one of cinnamon's most important benefits, but it is not the only one. It may help improve the hormone insulin's sensitivity by assisting diabetics with diabetes in determining their condition.

Although we don't recommend getting all your cinnamon solely from cinnamon buns, it's nice to know it's available.
