Ceylon cinnamon, which is native to Sri Lanka, is more difficult to find and more expensive. Its scientific name is Cinnamomum zeylanicum, and it is also known as Cinnamomum verum –
“verum” means “true”. Ceylon cinnamon has a sweeter, more delicate flavor than cassia;
(regular cinnamon) does, which may make it preferable for flavoring desserts and lighter dishes. But the more important distinction may be the presence of a chemical called coumarin, a natural plant component that supports good circulation..
Cinnamon’s unique abilities come from three basic types of components in the essential oils found in its bark. These oils contain beneficial components called cinnamaldehyde, cinnamyl acetate, and cinnamyl alcohol, plus a wide range of other volatile substances. Cinnamon is loaded with antioxidants.
Improves Blood Circulation. Platelets are constituents of blood that are meant to clump together under circumstances such as physical injury as a way to stop bleeding, but under normal circumstances, they can make blood flow inadequate if they clump together too much. The cinnaldehyde in cinnamon helps support smooth blood flow.
Helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels: Cinnamon can maintain balanced blood glucose levels.*
Joint Support: Cinnamon’s ability to lower the release of arachidonic acid from cell membranes also puts it in the category of an “anti-inflammatory” meaning it helps support cartilage and joint function.
Cleansing: Cinnamon’s essential oils also qualify it as a strong defense against outside toxins and it has been studied for its ability to optimize the immune system.
