Keeping cool in summer

Keeping cool in summer can be quite a challenge. It may come as somewhat of a surprise that adding a little cinnamon to your diet can actually help you do so. Researchers have found that the spice tends to lower the secretion of gastric acid and pepsin during digestion, thus reducing the formation of carbon dioxide in the stomach and lowering the temperature in that organ by as much as two degrees. Little wonder that many people who live in warm climates like to use cinnamon in their dishes.
