The secret in getting to the weight you desire may lie in your metabolism, which can vary from person to person, and scientists have long tried to figure out how to control this mysterious and little understood mechanism in the body.

Cinnamon has a property known as cinnamaldehyde, which has great potentials to reduce obesity with burning energy present in the fat cells, as according to the researchers from the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute.

The study out of the University of MI suggests there may be more benefits of 'Cinnamaldehyde'.

The researchers caution that more research is needed to figure out the flawless way to use cinnamaldehyde to trigger thermogenesis without causing any side effects.

Cinnamon, a popular ingredient used in mulled wine, pumpkin spice lattes and egg-nog, has also been associated with reducing risk for diabetes, relieving symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, and lowering cholesterol levels.

But, don't count on a Cinnabon diet in the near future! Wu added, "Scientists were finding that this compound affected metabolism".

They also observed an increase in proteins known as Ucp1 and Fgf21 - which help regulate thermogenesis.

Researchers analysed volunteers representing a range of ages, ethnicities and body mass indices and that cinnamaldehyde worked directly on fat cells called adipocytes, forcing them to start burning their energy through thermogenesis. As the research team treated fat cells from study subjects with cinnamaldehyde, the noticed increased expression of several genes and enzymes that enhance lipid metabolism.

Adipocytes normally store energy in the form of lipids.

"It's only been relatively recently that energy surplus has become a problem", Wu said in the statement.

'So if it can help protect against obesity, too, it may offer an approach to metabolic health that is easier for patients to adhere to'.

Wu said cinnamon is already used widely in food so it might be easier to convince patients to stick to a cinnamon-based treatment than to a traditional medicine.

Getting the body to turn the energy-consuming process, or thermogenesis, back on has been the focus of recent research, especially in light of the so-called obesity epidemic. One such activation method, Wu believes, may involve cinnamaldehyde-particularly now that cinnamaldehyde's effects have a mechanistic explanation.

Cinnamon is also loaded with antioxidants and the spice can help stop inflammation.

The flavour of cinnamon is due to an aromatic essential oil that makes up 0.5 to 1% of its composition.

Other suggestions include using cinnamon instead of sugar in tea or coffee, and brewing your own chai latte at home as packaged varieties can be full of sugar. The common holiday spice might actually protect against obesity and hyperglycemia.
