Cinnamon is the natural source of Coumadin. It's a powerful blood thinner. It also has thermogenic properties. 2 tsp is A LOT to eat at once. I remember reading somewhere that it's not a good idea to ingest more than 1 1/2 tsp a day.

I do not eat cinnamon often, because of the doubt that it can be THAT healthy for me. When i do use it though, it is in a pretty generous amount. It makes sweet potatoes taste all the better, with butter of course. So: Cinnamon, healthy or not? (more)
