Cinnamon extract could stop Alzheimer's

Cinnamon could help stop people developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Scientists have discovered an extract from the plant’s bark can halt the brain disorder which disrupts a sufferer’s memory, ­behaviour and thought processes.

One-in-eight people over 65 have the condition, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. But tests on mice and flies with the disease showed their mental decline and life spans returned to normal after just four months of using the spice’s extracts.

Study leader Professor Michael Ovadia began testing cinnamon after reading in the Bible that high priests once used it as a protective holy ointment.
