This post is about CEYLON CINNAMON, the most potent of the 250 species of cinnamon grown around the world. Researchers have reported that cinnamon is one of the most beneficial spices on earth with components that provide anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and immunity boosting abilities. A single serving of TRUE CINNAMON contains meaningful amounts of fiber, manganese, calcium, iron, and vitamin K and small amounts of Vitamin E, niacin, Vitamin B6, magnesium, potassium, zinc and copper.
As one of the oldest spices in the world, cinnamon has long been used by many cultures’ healing practices including Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine. In both instances, there is a belief that cinnamon may benefit the digestion, blood circulation, and energy levels and reduce pain.
Cinnamon is naturally sweet - helping us add less sugar to our diets and may stave off sugar cravings with a stabilizing effect on blood sugar levels…which of course brings us full circle to wanting to carry our TRUE CINNAMON with us wherever we are!
Ground cinnamon provides a warm sweetness to cereals, grains, yogurt and baked goods. It adds warmth and richness to soup and stews, as well as beverages such as smoothies, coffee, tea, and hot cocoa.
