This spice comes from the bark of cinnamon trees, small evergreens found in Sri Lanka and much of Southeast Asia. The bark is dried and can be ground or used in stick form. Ceylon cinnamon is different from other varieties. It has a lighter colour and delicate taste. It also has properties that contribute to many health benefits and here are just a few...⁠

🤎Anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties⁠

The distinctive smell and flavour of cinnamon comes from the essential oils contained in the bark, called cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde displays anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.⁠

🤎Contains Antioxidants⁠

Antioxidants help protect the body from disease and are found in fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices. The antioxidants in cinnamon have been found to have anti-inflammatory effects.⁠

🤎 Prebiotics for gut health⁠

Ceylon Cinnamon has prebiotic properties that promote the growth of beneficial bacteria and help suppress the growth of pathogenic bacteria. ⁠

🤎 Relieves digestive discomfort⁠

Cinnamon extract has been used to alleviate gastrointestinal problems in both Eastern and Western medicine for years. It has been described as a carminative, renowned for its digestive, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is believed that the warmth of cinnamon increases blood flow and improves blood oxygen levels to help fight off illness. To alleviate digestive symptoms, cinnamon is taken as part of a hot drink (like in tea). 🤎🤎⁠
