Ceylon Cinnamon Powder (True) 500g
on 19 January 2014
Every morning I have a hot drink made up of half a teaspoon each cinnamon and ginger powder, one thick slice of lemon (squeezed) and two teaspoons of cider vinegar. I was using the supermarket cinnamon until I read an article that differentiated the cinnamon bought in the supermarket and the true cinnamon. According to the article supermarket, cinnamon contains "cassia" which is an herb that looks and tastes like cinnamon and it does not carry the health benefits of true "cinnamon powder". Cassia contains higher amounts of coumarin than true cinnamon and coumarin is responsible for some of the side effects such skin and stomach irritation, increase heart rate, blood thinning and kidney and liver problems.
When I received my Ceylon Cinnamon Powder (True), I immediately notice the difference. The smell was stronger and the texture slightly courser almost earthy. Extremely different from that of the supermarkets. Some of the benefits of Ceylon Cinnamon Powder (True) when used as I do include decreases blood sugar; manages insulin levels and aids in weight loss.
There are four types of good cinnamon, but the Rolls Royce of cinnamons is the Ceylon Cinnamon Powder (True). The price is very reasonable and it will last for almost seven months. Packaging secured efficiently and delivery time within five days of ordering.
