A spiced up diet may improve learning ability

We know that eating a rich variety of foods is the best way to get important nutrients. And you can add spices to the equation.

Cinnamon is a delicious spice most of us have in our kitchen cupboard.

New research suggests that eating cinnamon might improve learning ability.

Researchers from Rush University Medical Center found that feeding cinnamon to laboratory mice made them better learners.

While more research needs to be done on how cinnamon helps us learn, we do know that the spice is loaded with antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Cinnamon is delicious and healthy, so consider adding a little to your morning toast, coffee or breakfast rolls.
