Please enjoy this information on cinnamon made available through the generosity of Vita-tech International's adoption.
NOTE: While Vita-tech International deals specifically in Cinnamomum verum (synonym: C. zeylanicum), or true cinnamon, the HerbMedPro record contains entries for articles on both C. verum and C. aromaticum (C. cassia), known as cinnamon, Chinese cinnamon, or cassia. In compiling the HerbMedPro record, ABC discovered that much of the published literature addresses both species or is not completely clear about which species is addressed in the study. To err on the side of caution, ABC decided to include all articles that referred to cinnamon, in order to not leave out any available research inadvertently.
