Not All Cinnamon Is The Same!

Did you know there is more than one type of cinnamon? In fact, two distinct forms of the spice exist!

1. For individuals looking for a more cost-effective option, Cassia is the most commonly found variety in grocery stores.

2.Recognized as the premier variety, Ceylon is known to be the higher-grade "true" cinnamon.

Ceylon and Cassia cinnamon both have unique characteristics - the major difference being their coumarin content. Ceylon is known for its milder flavor profile, while Cassia has a stronger taste with subtle hints of vanilla. Unfortunately, it also inhibits vitamin K production in your body.

For those of you who wish to consume large amounts of cinnamon, Ceylon is the perfect option!

Yet, regardless of the source and type, all cinnamon holds an aromatic compound known as cinnamaldehyde.

Cinnamaldehyde is what lends cinnamon its unmistakable smell and rich taste, as well as countless health advantages. For example...

  • Antioxidant support

  • Supporting the action of insulin

  • Blood sugar support

  • Fighting infections

You may have to consume cinnamon consistently in order to fully experience these health benefits, so add it in to all your favorite treats; it's giving your body a healthy boost!
