7 Herbs to Fight Joint and Knee Pain

6. Cinnamon

Cinnamon is another powerful spice that can improve your overall wellbeing. It contains various compounds associated with reducing existing inflammation and can also neutralize free radicals that tend to increase this inflammation. This reduces the risk of cell damage and chronic diseases.

Other reported benefits of cinnamon include lowering blood sugar in diabetics and protecting against heart disease and cancer. It doesn’t take long to see the benefits – just a pinch of toast a day or your latte can help. You can also buy cinnamon capsules, but talk to your doctor first if you are taking blood thinners or have liver disease.
