Cinnamon, the Super Spice!

Cinnamon has been valued around the world for centuries and now according to current research, Cinnamon is considered to be a super food.

I’m talking about Ceylon Cinnamon, the true therapeutic Cinnamon. Ceylon Cinnamon is being widely used to treat chronic health conditions such as Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Asthma and inflammatory conditions as well as infertility, PMS and the common cold. Ceylon Cinnamon also has fantastic anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties. So start now, add this super spice to your meals and feel lighter, fresher and healthier every day.

Remember, Ceylon Cinnamon is different from the common, sweeter Cinnamon known as Cassia, but can be used the same way. Cassia needs be used with a little caution for the elderly, children and those with poor liver function because it contains a compound called coumarin but otherwise if you are a healthy adult, you can have up to a teaspoon per day. Cassia has proven to be anti-inflammatory but does not have the other properties of the super spice that is Ceylon Cinnamon. You will find both Ceylon Cinnamon and Cassia Quills in the shops, pictured below. The Ceylon Quills will usually have many more layers curled up together.

My favourite way of using Ceylon Cinnamon is in a chia drink. I add 1 teaspoon of chia seeds, ½ teaspoon of Cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of Carob, Cacao or Cocoa powder to 200mls of Almond milk (or other milk) and 200mls of water. Add a little honey, rice malt syrup or xylitol for sweetness if you like. Its even better if you let it sit for an hour, it becomes more like a smoothie. Add powdered ginger if you want it a little warmer and make sure to give your drink a good shake. Enjoy!
