Cinnamon Powder (Cassia) - Organic

More than just a simple spice, cinnamon packs a powerful punch in the antioxidant arena. Used for thousands of years to treat a variety of ailments, this amazing spice has an abundance of research to back it up. Cinnamon is obtained from the inner bark of the cinnamon tree. The bark rolls up while drying in the sun and forms what we know as a cinnamon stick which is left as is or ground into a fine powder.

Cinnamon is one of the oldest and most recognizable of flavors in the world. Ancient Egyptians imported cinnamon from China and used it as a medicine and food enhancer. Since then it has been used in just about every type of food product available.

Preliminary lab and animal studies have found that cinnamon may have antibacterial and antifungal properties. It may also have an anti-clotting effect on blood. Several studies suggest that non-GMO cinnamon may have a supportive effect on blood sugar, making it possibly beneficial for people with type 2 diabetes. Other studies with cinnamon showed an amazing ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections. One study even found that smelling cinnamon may support cognitive function and memory.

In a study published by researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Maryland, cinnamon was shown to reduce the proliferation of mutated cells. During research at Copenhagen University, patients were given half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder combined with one tablespoon of honey every morning before breakfast; after only one week the patients had significant relief in arthritis pain.

Studies have shown that just 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon per day may possibly support healthy lipid levels and when added to food; it may support the inhibition of bacterial growth and food spoilage making it a natural food preservative. Cinnamon is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron and calcium.
