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.

I never knew the difference between real cinnamon and Cassia bark powder until ordering this -- and the product is entirely different. What an incredible aroma and tastes amazing in food and tea. The legendary benefits of cinnamon aren't available in Cassia -- only in Ceylon spice like this one. The packaging is basic but does the job. Suggest have a tight-lidded container for storage to keep this fresh as it's quite a lot of cinnamon.

I drink a teaspoon of this in warm water with two level tablespoons of raw honey before bed each night. I particularly enjoy the taste of this true cinnamon powder.

Tastes great I put it on my porridge in the mornings to help keep blood sugars normal . It is a lot more grainy than the normal cinnamon but it's good for me.

The cinnamon is really good. I couldn't believe how good the flavour is and would recommend it to anyone, especially if they have been disappointed with insipid supermarket packets.

Good product at decent price. Delivery time could have been a lot better. But due to quantity this isnt a big issue as I wont need to order regularly.

Excellent product, fragant and sweet. Better than supermarket cassia cinnamon powder which might not be so good for ones health.

True Cinnamon is better for you (if you're taking it for lowering blood sugar) than the supermaket variety.
According to a doctor at Mayo Clinic: Recent research suggests that cinnamon may be helpful as a supplement to regular diabetes treatment in people with type 2 diabetes. A 2012 review of several recent studies concluded that the use of cinnamon had a potentially beneficial effect on glycemic control.
