A key magical component of our Masala Chai and Cacao Spice plant-based blends, Cinnamon brings a touch of the eternal to our recipes. In addition to holding antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anticancer compounds, cinnamon has also been shown to potentially prevent Alzheimers and Parkinson’s disease (1). It’s what makes it a vital daily spice to include in your plant-based diet for a longer, healthier incarnation.

A biblical spice prized by ancient nations, Cinnamon was once more valuable than gold and considered a fitting gift for royalty. Nowadays, it’s a staple in spice cupboards across the eastern and western world. But Cinnamon’s sovereign stature lives on due to its multifaceted medicinal properties.

Cinnamon contains a potent dose of antioxidants, including polyphenols, phenolic acid and flavonoids, which have been shown to help slow the aging process and aid in the prevention of disease (1). In fact, researchers have identified at least 41 different protective compounds found within Cinnamon to date (1). It’s a wonderful spice to include in your everyday wellness routine to help relieve inflammation, protect your heart health, preserve brain function, and potentially lower your risk of cancer (1).

In Ayurvedic medicine, Cinnamon is thought of as a catalyst to enhance your body’s ability to absorb other essential nutrients found in plants. Much like how Black Pepper when mixed with Turmeric can increase its absorption by up to 2,000%. It’s also used to balance digestion and pacify stomach disorders or upsets.

We use only 100% certified organic bark from the Cinnamon Tree, sustainably-grown and consciously-harvested by one of our favourite small batch farmers located in the spice mecca of Southern India.
