    CINNAMON HERBAL DESCRIPTION

    Cinnamon is also known as Cinnamomum verum, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Sweet Cinnamon, Cinnamon Bark, True Cinnamon, Ceylon Cinnamon, Mexican Cinnamon. Cassia Cinnamon is also known as Chinese Cinnamon, Indonesian Cinnamon, Korintje Cinnamon, Pandang Cassia, Saigon Cinnamon, Vietnamese Cinnamon, Vietnamese Cassia, Cinnamomum Loureiroi, Cinnamomum Cassia, Cinnamomum burmannii, Cassia, False Cinnamon, and Cassia Lignea, Cinnamomum Aromaticum.

    Cinnamon is one of the most recognizable of flavors in the world, and has been used at one time or another in just about every type of food product available, as well as the flavoring for a great many pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The word cinnamon, the genus name, probably came from either the Arabic or the Hebrew language, but the species name cassia is from the Greek kassia, meaning to strip off the bark. Its use in Chinese medicine goes back to at least 2700 B.C.E. where it is referred to in several herbal formularies. It is, however, primarily known for the familiar flavor it imparts to any dish that it comes in contact with.

    Cinnamon is the dried inner bark of various evergreen trees belonging to the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon has been used as a medicine and spice for over 5,000 years. Early Egyptians used it in their embalming mixtures. Egyptians imported it from China in 2000 BC. In the Middle Ages, the source of Cinnamon was a mystery to the western world. Portuguese traders finally discovered Cinnamon in Sri Lanka and at the end of the fifteen-century restructured the traditional production of Cinnamon. The Dutch captured Sri Lanka in 1636 and established a system of cultivation that exists to this day. It has a warm and aromatic flavor and fragrance is sweet and woody in both ground and stick forms. The commercial Cinnamon bark is the dried inner bark of the shoots. Both the bark and leaves are aromatic. True Cinnamon is native to Sri Lanka. The Cinnamon used in North America is from the Cassia tree, which is grown in Vietnam, China, Indonesia and Central America.

    Cinnamon is from a tropical evergreen tree of the Laurel family. Can grow up to 56 feet in its wild state. It has a thick bark, strong branches and young shoots speckled green/orange. The bark is smooth and yellowish. The leaves are oval, deeply veined leaves that are dark green on the top and lighter green underneath. When the leaves are bruised they smell spicy and have a hot taste. The flowers are yellow/white with a disagreeable odor that bears dark purple berries.

    TYPES OF CINNAMON

    There are hundreds of types of Cinnamon. But only 4 types or varieties of Cinnamon are used for commercial purposes. These are Ceylon Cinnamon, Cassia Cinnamon, Saigon Cinnamon and Korintje Cinnamon.

    With the exception of Ceylon Cinnamon, Cassia, Saigon and Korintje Cinnamon are also classified under the Cassia Cinnamon category because they are very similar to each other with only slight variations in color, taste, shape and Coumarin content. All Cassia-type Cinnamon are hard and have high levels of Coumarin a substance known to cause liver damage, while Ceylon Cinnamon is the only soft and brittle Cinnamon with ultra low Coumarin levels.

    Most of Europe uses Ceylon Cinnamon primarily because this was the first spice European explores brought back from their conquests of the orient nearly 400 years ago. Around 70 percent of North America uses Cassia Cinnamon. Indonesia is the chief supplier of Cassia Cinnamon. This is because it is much cheaper than Ceylon Cinnamon which tends to be expensive because of the hand crafted process needed to harvest it and roll it in multiple thin layers. Cassia Cinnamon is a hard bark that is spicy, smells pretty strong and sometimes bitter.

    Saigon Cinnamon is another Cinnamon which has gained in popularity recently. It tends to be even more spicy and strong and sweet at the same time. It is a little more expensive than Cassia Cinnamon but has the highest levels of Coumarin (see Coumarin Chart below).

    Ceylon Cinnamon has one advantage over all other types of Cinnamon. It has ultra low coumarin levels. Coumarin in high doses causes liver failure, so for people who take Cinnamon on a daily basis, Ceylon Cinnamon is the preferred choice. ( See Cassia Cinnamon & Coumarin Research.)

    For fine desserts Ceylon Cinnamon is an absolute must because it is subtle, smells very mild and is slightly sweeter in taste. It never takes center stage in the recipe but adds a very complex flavor. Although Ceylon Cinnamon smells mild, if you grind and add it to baked goods or Cinnamon french toast for example, the aroma it gives off is a very sophisticated and fragrant smell. Most well established recipes that call for Cinnamon came from Europe or the middle east and should use Ceylon Cinnamon. The same applies to any Mexican recipes that calls for Cinnamon. This is because the taste profile of these desserts were designed with Ceylon Cinnamon.

    However because the supply in the US is overwhelmingly Cassia Cinnamon, most people have been using Cassia Cinnamon. That makes the desserts taste very different. Even many Mexican desserts made in the US erroneously substitute Cassia Cinnamon, which ruins the original taste profile of the dessert. Because Ceylon Cinnamon tends to be mild and sweet, it lends itself to creating sophisticated layers of flavors that is not possible with harsher Cassia Cinnamon.

    SIMPLE TEST TO DETERMINE CINNAMON TYPE

    There is a simple test to determine whether your Cinnamon has Cassia mixed in: Cassia is full of starch whereas True Cinnamon is not. Starch turns blue when it meets iodine, so unleashing an iodine dropper upon a sample of your Cinnamon will reveal its ingredients. Cassia will turn blue and true Cinnamon will retain its golden brown color.

    COUMARIN LEVELS IN CINNAMON TYPES

    Coumarin is a substance that can cause liver damage or complete failure. Only Ceylon Cinnamon has low levels of Coumarin, while all other varieties of Cinnamon have high levels of Coumarin. At one stage the German government banned Cassia type Cinnamon. A University of Mississippi study was done showing the high levels of Coumarin in all other types of Cinnamon, except Ceylon Cinnamon. So if you are taking Cinnamon for health reasons, then you must and should switch to Ceylon Cinnamon. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) established a tolerable daily intake (TDI) of 0.1 mg/kg body weight for Cinnamon.


    CINNAMON RESEARCH & COUMARIN

    Coumarin is a toxic, fragrant chemical compound commonly found in high concentration in Cassia Cinnamon the cheap hard Cinnamon sticks you find at your local grocery store. If you have liver disease, damage or failure, check to see if you have been consuming high levels of Cassia Cinnamon or Cassia Cinnamon based products. And if you have been popping those popular Cinnamon tablets check to see if they have been made with Cassia Cinnamon. If they have been made with Cassia Cinnamon, you may have caused great harm to your liver.

    Coumarin is also contained in a number of other products, most notably in Tonka beans, Vanilla Grass, Sweet Woodruff, Mullein, and Sweet Grass. The name Coumarin comes from the French for Tonka bean, which is coumarou.

    Interestingly while Coumarin is banned in the United States as an additive or as constituent of Tonka beans, Coumarin in food from other natural sources such as Cassia Cinnamon is not regulated. When you consider the huge amount of Cassia Cinnamon consumed in the United States and the fact there are 30 million cases of liver disease you start to wonder if this was an error or oversight of the US Health authorities. If you have been eating quite bit of Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Cinnamon Toast Waffles, or using Cinnamon in your baked goods, on toast, and other culinary dishes, perhaps you should consider switching Ceylon Cinnamon, which has less than 0.04-percent Coumarin while Cassia Cinnamon has in the region of 4-percent.

    The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) established a tolerable daily intake (TDI) of 0.1 mg/kg body weight according to this University of Mississippi study of April 2013. Partly funded by the FDA and efforts of Ananda Wickramasinghe, the former Sri Lankan consul general in Los Angeles, this latest research project has exposed the hidden dangers Coumarin. The German government was actually the first to raise alarms about the level of Coumarin in Cassia Cinnamon in 2006. According to this opinion report published in September 2012, they say "If an average coumarin content in Cassia cinnamon of 3000 mg per kilogram of cinnamon is assumed, the TDI value can be exceeded by consumers who eat a great deal of Cassia cinnamon. For an adult with a body weight of 60 kg (132 lbs), the TDI value is reached, if 2 grams of Cassia Cinnamon are consumed per day. For an infant with a body weight of 15 kg, this is the case if 0.5 grams of Cassia cinnamon are consumed per day. Overall exposure can be increased by other sources, for example coumarin-containing cosmetics. Consumers who frequently and regularly eat cinnamon-containing foods should be aware of this. Recommendations are to consume Cassia Cinnamon in moderation. Consumers frequently using large quantities of cinnamon as a condiment should therefore opt for the low-coumarin Ceylon cinnamon".

    The University of Mississippi report goes onto look at Coumarin content in various common food products available in the United States, and found high levels of Coumarin,. Of particular concern was the Coumarin levels in Cinnamon dietary supplements, which is astronomically high. If you are taking Cinnamon on a daily basis, then there is the real possibility of Coumarin build up your system, even if your daily intake does not exceed the maximum levels. The chart below shows a brief extract of the research project, but take a closer look at the full report for detailed information.

    As expected, the report shows that Ceylon Cinnamon has ultra low levels of Coumarin as to be totally insignificant, while all other types of Cinnamon exhibited high levels of Coumarin, especially Saigon Cinnamon. The chart below shows an extract of these findings.

    Even if you switch to Ceylon Cinnamon for your capsules, we feel that ingesting Cinnamon capsules does not represent a good choice because of the inherent danger of their production methods. (See Dangers of Cinnamin Capsules).

    If you are taking Ceylon Cinnamon for health benefits, then stick to good quality natural Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks or Ceylon Cinnamon Black Tea infused with Ceylon Cinnamon Bark Oil. It has a mild yet slightly sweeter taste. Ceylon Cinnamon is not overtly spicy and harsh like Cassia Cinnamon, but creates a more sophisticated flavor profile in fine desserts recipes and Asian curries. Boiled Ceylon Cinnamon sticks made into a deep reddish tea is a fabulous taste treat, especially when iced and has many health benefits without the downside of Cassia Cinnamon.

    CINNAMON TYPE COMPARISONS

    Ceylon Cinnamon (above right) sticks are soft, crumbly and rolled like cigar with layers of soft brittle Cinnamon bark. All other Cinnamon looks like the Cassia Cinnamon sticks (above left) and tends to be hard, hollow and have only one rolled layer. Notice the color difference. Ceylon Cinnamon is lighter in color while other Cinnamon tends to be darker in color.

    CINNAMON USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    Like most delicious plant foods, Cinnamon has many healing qualities. Some of the scientifically confirmed effects of Cinnamon are that it has antibiotic, diaphoretic (inducing perspiration - helpful in detoxing), antiulcerative, digestive, anticonvulsant, diuretic, and carminative (flatulence relieving) properties, as a sedative for smooth muscle, and as a stimulant for circulation.

    This spice also relieves nausea, diarrhea, and eliminates gas. It has warming effects on the body, enhances digestion, and increases the metabolism of fats. This spice can help reduce fevers and relieve congestion. Cinnamon is also used in treating diabetes, weight loss, yeast infection, and uterine hemorrhaging.

    In North America, cinnamon is most frequently used as a supplement to help regulate blood sugar. Research shows that Cinnamon can aid the body in using insulin more efficiently. In one scientific study of 60 people with type 2 diabetes, 1 to 6 daily grams of cinnamon for 40 days reduced fasting blood glucose by 18 to 29 percent. Triglycerides were reduced by 23 to 30 percent, LDL cholesterol by 7 to 27 percent, and total cholesterol by 12 to 26 percent.

    Studies done by Japanese researchers shows that Cinnamon contains a substance that is both anti fungal and anti bacterial. This spice contains properties that kill bacteria and other microorganisms, including Staphylococcus aureus (staph infections), and Clostridium botulinum, the source of botulism. Many fungi and molds produce aflatoxin, which is a potent poison and carcinogen. Cinnamon has been shown to be devastating to them. It has also been shown to suppress E. Coli (which is a common contaminate causing food poisoning) and Candida albicans (which is common cause of yeast infections).

    The Germany Commission E has this to say about Cinnamon and Chinese Cinnamon: Used for loss of appetite, dyspeptic complaints such as mild, spastic condition of the gastrointestinal tract, bloating, and flatulence.

    The essential oils in the bark are responsible for cinnamon's healing qualities. The oils contain many volatile substances, including the active components cinnamaldehyde, cinnamyl acetate, eugenol, trans-cinnamic acid, and cinnamyl alcohol. These oils have been demonstrated to have antifungal, antiviral, bactericidal effects, and antioxidant properties.

    Ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks should both be stored cool, dark and dry in a tightly sealed glass container. Ground cinnamon stays good for about six months and cinnamon sticks stay good for about a year.

    Cinnamon essential oil should only be used sparingly for topical applications. Even when diluted, it can irritate the skin if the amount is too high. As with most volatile oils, Cinnamon oil is always diluted first with a carrier oil. Oil extracted from the bark of the Cinnamon plant is suitable only for use in a diffuser or simmer pot. Do not use more than 3 drops, since its high potency may cause headaches. Wash your hands well after each use.

    CINNAMON DOSAGE INFORMATION

    You can buy Cinnamon bark tea and drink as a digestive aid or you can make your own by pouring 1 cup of hot water over a scant 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon bark.

    For digestive upset, flatulence, bloating, or to stimulate the appetite, take 15 to 30 drops of liquid extract in a glass of water, or drink one cup of Cinnamon bark tea 3 times a day.

    Cinnamon oil is to be used only for its aroma and not for internal or external use.





    CINNAMON SAFETY, CAUTIONS & INTERACTIONS INFORMATION

    Using Cinnamon bark tea is generally safe with the occasional allergic reaction; however, Cinnamon oil is highly concentrated and can be very toxic, causing nausea, vomiting, and even kidney damage. If the oil is applied to the skin, it can sometimes causes redness and burning as well.

    It has been noted by the German Commission E that some people are in fact allergic to cinnamon, with side effects ranging from an allergic skin reactions to mucosa. An allergy to Cinnamon might show up as a skin irritation, second-degree burn where there was contact on the skin, fast breathing, increased perspiration and unusual excitement followed by drowsiness.

    Cinnamon is not recommended for medicinal uses during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Also, there have not been sufficient tests done on pregnant and lactating women to ensure cinnamon's safety when used as a supplement during these times. The small amounts used in cooking and foods is considered okay and safe to consume.

    Much like spinach, cinnamon contains moderate amounts of oxalate and thus should be avoided by those with a history of oxalate-containing kidney stones.


    DANGERS OF CINNAMON CAPSULES

    While Ceylon Cinnamon has become popular for treating diabetes and other health ailments one must understand that the evidence is still not definitive. At least according to western science. But the greater danger comes when people start taking Cinnamon capsules.

  • Silicon Dioxide: Like most herbal supplements, Cinnamon capsules have an ingredient called Silicon Dioxide. This is widely used in the supplement industry as an anti caking agent. The problem is that it has a variety of side effects according this article, most notably Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. According to the article, Silicon Dioxide increases pressure on connective tissue, nerves and ganglia, interrupts neurological function, inhibits blood flow, inhibits proper metabolism, inhibits proper muscle function, inhibits adequate healing responses, inhibits proper nutrition absorption and toxin elimination.

  • Magnesium Stearate: Cinnamon capsules like most supplements also has a substance called Magnesium Stearate which according Dr. Mercola suppresses T cells, your natural killer cells, and causes the collapse of cell membrane integrity. This is an effect that was found to be time and dose dependent, which, ultimately, can destroy cell function.

  • Cinnamon Capsules May Be Too Concentrated: According to the US Department of health, Cinnamon appears to be safe for most people when taken by mouth in amounts up to 6 grams daily for 6 weeks or less. Most capsules are 1000 mg which is well within the safe zone but we really have no way of knowing the potency of these Cinnamon capsules, which could be too high or too low to have any effect.

  • Coumarin Content In Cinnamon Capsules: There is no indication which Cinnamon is used to manufacture most Cinnamon capsules. Cassia Cinnamon has high levels of Coumarin, a substance known to cause liver failure, while Ceylon Cinnamon has approximately 0.04-percent and does not represent any significant danger of liver failure. Some manufactures have switched to Cassia Cinnamon ostensibly due to a shortage of Ceylon Cinnamon but it could also be due to the much cheaper price of Cassia Cinnamon.

  • Cinnamon Capsule Quality: As with all capsules, the process of distilling Cinnamon into capsule form maybe be significantly diluting the effects of Cinnamon. For example 2 sticks of real Cinnamon (8 grams ) has good levels of Fiber (13.5%), Manganese (73%), Calcium (8%) and Iron (4%). Cinnamon capsules may strip away these beneficial compounds and thus negate the blood sugar control properties associated with Cinnamon. It may be the combination of these compounds that may make it work to control blood sugar. We are more concerned about the manufacturing quality of these Cinnamon tablets often with no traceability to who manufactures them or a comprehensive ingredients list. Some manufactures list Cinnamon Extract (cinnamomum ramulus) (twigs) on their ingredients list, an obscure cinnamon of poor quality grown in Guandgong China.

  • Corrosive Effect On Stomach: You should always eat something with Cinnamon pills. This is because a huge dose of something as potent a Cinnamon still has a chance of damaging your stomach lining. Sure you can eat something with your tablet, but there is still the danger unless you break apart the tablet and mix it well that the cinnamon tablet will damage your stomach lining. Put some cinnamon powder or chew on a cinnamon tablet on your mouth and hold it. If it burns imagine what it does to your stomach lining which is much softer. Ideally you want to mix Cinnamon and take it gradually. You cannot do that with a tablet. Take the real stuff.

    SWEET CINNAMON (TRUE CINNAMON) PRODUCTS

    Experiments conducted by the USDA have shown that this - the variety we call True Cinnamon or Sweet Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum; Cinnamomum zeylanicum) can lower blood sugar by mimicking insulin, activating insulin receptors and working with insulin in the cells to reduce blood sugar by up to percent. Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon a day has previously been shown to significantly reduce blood sugar levels, triglycerides, LDL (bad) cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon is one of the most recognizable of flavors in the world, and has been used at one time or another in just about every type of food product available, as well as the flavoring for a great many pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The German Commission E recommended cinnamon for treating the loss of appetite, as well as gastronomical complaints including cramps, flatulence, and nausea. Cinnamons beneficial effects on the digestive tract are attributed to its antioxidant catechins, which may also help fight bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections. Cassia bark has been used for over a thousand years in both Eastern and Western medicine in treating chronic diarrhea, colds, kidney trouble, abdominal and heart pains, hypertension, and even cancer , among others. It has been noted by the German Commission E that some people are in fact allergic to cinnamon, with side effects ranging from an allergic skin reactions to mucosa. It is not recommended for medicinal uses during pregnancy or breastfeeding.

    CINNAMON (CASSIA) PRODUCTS

    Cinnamon is one of the most recognizable of flavors in the world, and has been used at one time or another in just about every type of food product available, as well as the flavoring for a great many pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. The German Commission E recommended cinnamon for treating the loss of appetite, as well as gastronomical complaints including cramps, flatulence, and nausea. Cinnamons beneficial effects on the digestive tract are attributed to its antioxidant catechins, which may also help fight bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections. Cassia Cinnamon bark has been used for over a thousand years in both Eastern and Western medicine in treating chronic diarrhea, colds, kidney trouble, abdominal and heart pains, hypertension, and even cancer, among others. Cinnamomum cassia is also known as Cinnamomum burmannii, Cassia, Cassia Cinnamon, Chinese Cinnamon, False Cinnamon and Cassia Lignea. Cassia Cinnamon is often used as a less expensive substitute for true Sweet Cinnamon for baking and flavoring and other purposes. The difference between Sweet Cinnamon and Cassia Cinnamon is quite apparent; Sweet Cinnamon quills will have a layered look to them, as if several were rolled together, while Cassia will appear as one thick piece of bark. Sweet Cinnamon is also lighter in color, and as the name implies, of a sweeter flavor. Cinnamon quills have a long, almost indefinite shelf life, while Cinnamon powder will eventually lose its flavor over time. Sweet cinnamon can contain up to 4% oil of cinnamaldehyde, eugenol, and trans-cinnamic acid, however it is usually lighter in oil content and sweeter tasting than Cassia Cinnamon. It also contains phenolic compounds, tannins, catechins, calcium, iron, mucilage, resin, natural sugars, and traces of coumarin.
