Our Organic Ceylon Cinnamon is the aromatic bark of a variety of the laurel tree, native to Sri Lanka and S. India. Cinnamon spice is used in Oriental, African and Indian savoury dishes, but commonly used in the West to flavour sweet dishes, desserts, cakes, drinks and syrups.
Cinnamon is a popular spice. It’s high in cinnamaldehyde, which is thought to be responsible for most of the health benefits of cinnamon. It contains large amounts of highly potent polyphenol antioxidants. The antioxidants in cinnamon have anti-inflammatory effects, which may help lower your risk of disease.
Cinnamon may improve some key risk factors for heart disease, including cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure. It has been shown to significantly increase sensitivity to the hormone insulin.
Cinnamaldehyde has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which may reduce infections and help fight tooth decay and bad breath.
