Info: 227 g (1/2 lb) 5 inch Ceylon (true) cinnamon sticks.
Aviva's 5" cinnamon sticks are true Ceylon cinnamon, perfect for use in cooking or as a flavouring agent for teas. Or use them to grind your own cinnamon, ensuring you know the exact source and purity of the cinnamon you use as a supplement or as a baking ingredient.
Ceylon Cinnamon Powder is also available if you prefer this beneficial type of cinnamon already ground to a fine powder form.
Cinnamon is taken as a supplement for a variety of reasons, including weight loss, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type II diabetes. However, the cinnamon you buy regularly at a grocery store is, unless specified otherwise, usually a Cassia or Cinnamomum burmannii type rather than the true Cinnamomum zeylanicum or Ceylon cinnamon, which usually comes from Sri Lanka. Cassia contains higher levels of coumarin than Ceylon cinnamon, and coumarin can cause thinning of the blood (impeding its ability to clot, as an appropriate response to cuts or injuries) as well as liver problems in some.
