Product Description

Cinnamon Chips 

Also Known As – Cinnamomum verum

Origin - Sri Lanka  Certified Organic 

Overview - Cinnamon bark is the dried inner bark from the shoots of the tree from the Lauraceae family. Ceylon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), Indonesian (Cinnamomum burmanii), and Chinese cassia (Cinnamomum cassia) are the most commonly found species of commerce. In addition to its thousands of culinary uses across a number of various cultures, it has been used for thousands of years as a carminative, astringent, local stimulant, antiseptic, hemostatic, and is widely used in traditional herbal medicine to support healthy digestion.

  • Cinnamon has long been used to cure everything from athlete’s foot to indigestion. Early civilizations recognized its ability to stop bacterial growth. The Egyptians used it in embalming. During the Middle Ages, it was mixed with cloves and warm water, and placed in the sick rooms of victims of the Bubonic Plague.
  • Recent research indicates that cinnamon can have favorable effects on brain function. Participants in a study chewed cinnamon gum or smelled the sweet spice. Cognitive tests revealed that subjects who used cinnamon had better memory functions and could process information more quickly. Encouraged by these findings, scientists will now conduct studies to see if cinnamon will improve mental skills in the elderly and those prone to anxiety before testing.  
  • Chinese herbalists tell of older people, in their 70s and 80s, developing a cough accompanied by frequent spitting of whitish phlegm. A helpful remedy, they suggest, is chewing and swallowing a very small pinch of powdered cinnamon. Should be of the highest quality, determined by a bitter-sweet taste. If too bitter and/or not oily, the quality is poor. This remedy can also help people with cold feet and hands, especially at night.

Medicinal Uses - There is evidence that Cinnamon Bark extract can help in promoting healthy blood sugar and treating diabetes. Recent U.S.D.A. reports demonstrate that extracts of Cinnamon increase insulin activity, enhancing the breakdown of glucose and improving blood sugar concentrations. A less obvious group who can benefit from this wonderful herbal tincture is women suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, or PCOS. In traditional medicine it has been used for digestive ailments such as indigestion, gas and bloating, stomach upset, nausea, diarrhea and painful menstruation. And studies shown that it can lower LDL cholesterol and may be  great support for heart health. Cinnamon has a mild anti-clotting effect in the blood, which could be beneficial for some. Cinnamon Bark can also have a mild anti-inflammatory effect and it contains anti-fungal properties that have been shown to have the ability to stop medication-resistant yeast infections. It can wipe out strains of Helcobacter pylori. This is the common cause of ulcers, heart disease, and possibly, some types of cancer. Cinnamon is believed to useful for people who tend to feel hot in their upper body but have cold feet.

    I bought the cinnamon chips to add to my herbal teas and they work great! It is good quality cinnamon and it has a lot of flavor. The chips are better than adding cinnamon powder or getting cinnamon sticks and having to chop them up. It makes a great addition to any herbal tea that I make.
