Cinnamon AAH

Cinnamomum verum (Ceylon or true cinnamon, native to India and Sri Lanka) and C. aromaticum (Chinese cinnamon or cassia, native to China and Vietnam) are evergreen trees in the laurel family (Lauraceae). They are often used interchangeably for loss of appetite and stomach complaints such as spasms, bloating, and flatulence, and their glucose lowering effects.

The American Botanical Council (ABC) is passionate about helping people live healthier lives through the responsible use of herbs and medicinal plants. As an independent, nonprofit education organization, ABC is dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information for consumers, healthcare practitioners, researchers, educators, industry and the media.

Please enjoy this information on cinnamon made available through the generosity of Vitatech’s adoption.
