    Cinnamon may protect against infection, study finds

    http://www.foxnews.com/health/2015/06/01/cinnamon-may-protect-against-infection-study-finds/?intcmp=obmod_ffo&intcmp=obnetwork

    I think this is a very important study for us preppers. This part of the article point out what cinnamon can do,
    “The results validates (sic) our belief that a diet that includes a tablespoon of cinnamon once or twice a day can be effective in eliminating or preventing viruses from infecting humans and causing sickness, such as colds, flu, and even herpes,”

    Problem 1: If memory serves, cinnamon isn’t native to deepest darkest Louisiana.
    Availability may be an issue.

    Problem 2: Like most spices, it does have a finite lifespan for potency. You can’t store it like honey or salt.

    Problem 3: I don’t know about you but I don’t think I could choke down that much in a day. Certain ethnic foods are high in various spices, but again you don’t want to eat those same foods day in and day out.

    Interesting study though.

    Tablespoon? That is a lot. Didn’t kids die from “cinnamon challenges” in that quantity?

    Yes a tablespoon! But this is in the day so you put it in your cereal, yogurt an so on. Also this is only when you see that you are getting sick. But yes it is a lot.

    Whiribird, I think you maybe right on the lifespan for potency, I think it is one to two years. That maybe a problem here in Florida too.

    If memory serves, and please correct me if I’m wrong, best lifespan comes from unground sticks sealed away from oxygen and moisture.
    Something like 4’ish years for best potency.

    However how old is it and what has it been exposed to before you purchase it?

    Cold and viruses can be used minimized with elderberry extract. Can be done homemade with local ingredients too. I used 100 proof vodka for mine last year and was pleased with it. This year I will be freezing berries just enough to get them off heads. Haven’t had a cold in years. This stuff was research big time in Israel with excellent outcomes. Don’t except any studies here, no money to be made for big pharma. Here is a nice reference. http://scrimpalicious.blogspot.com/2011/09/elderberry-extract-how-to-make-it-and.html

    Old remedy I have tried , get a pot full of water , toss in a few sticks , let boil until the water is very dark brown . This takes about 45 min , to an hour ……………then drink it ( not the whole pot full ) . it perks you up fast , and gives you decent energy , but the affect is not long lasting as far as the energy part goes .

    Sounds like cinnamon in this way is a good remedy for a bit of energy and for combating viruses.
    So border patrol, you put the elderberries in the vodka and let it sit for a bit?

    I forgot about elderberry. We used to get warm, spiced elderberry wine to fix our sniffles as a kid. It worked and tasted great.

    For those interested, the google results for “medical properties of cinnamon” has a lot of links.
