Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks

1 Ounce

St. Lucia's mountain slopes and rich volcanic soil provides the ideal growing conditions for Cinnamon trees.  


Ceylon Cinnamon can be ground or used in sticks to add sweetness and warmth to foods and drinks. Ceylon cinnamon is a popular spice in the carribbean and is used in curry dishes, baked goods, and teas.   


Science and history confirm that Ceylon cinnamon is the only true cinnamon. All other cinnamons are technically cassia bark. It also offers some impressive health benefits. 


Ceylon cinnamon is full of antioxidants, which help your body handle free radicals and lowers your risk of health conditions like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. 


Ceylon cinnamon is also rich in the mineral manganese. This mineral helps your body manage the enzymes that produce hormones and help repair your bones. Manganese also works as an antioxidant as part of the enzyme manganese superoxide dismutase, protecting your body from free radicals.


Ceylon cinnamon is also an excellent source of:

  •  Vitamin A
  •  Vitamin K
  •  Potassium
  •  Zinc
  •  Magnesium
  • Cinnamaldehyde    


Health Benefits

The vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in Ceylon cinnamon provide significant health benefits. For example, cinnamon is full of beta-carotene, which is part of the reason for its rich brown color. The carotene family of pigments acts as important provitamins since they can be converted into vitamin A. This vitamin is an important part of keeping your eyes healthy. 

Other health benefits of Ceylon cinnamon include:


Reduced Inflammation

Ceylon cinnamon's active ingredient, cinnamaldehyde, may have anti-inflammatory properties. Cinnamaldehyde has been shown to reduce the inflammatory response in the body, leading to fewer negative symptoms. Inflammation is linked to chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. Ceylon cinnamon may be able to reduce symptoms of these conditions. 


May Reduce Cholesterol Levels

Early studies done with cinnamon have shown that it can help reduce your cholesterol levels. "Bad" LDL cholesterol is connected to problems like heart disease, as are high cholesterol levels overall. Cinnamon appears to help lower LDL and overall cholesterol levels without affecting "good" HDL cholesterol significantly.


Improves Insulin Response

Finally, cinnamon also seems to have benefits for people with insulin resistance or diabetes. Studies show that regularly consuming cinnamon can help your body's natural response to insulin. This can help your body moderate its blood sugar levels more effectively and reduce your risk of hypo- or hyperglycemia incidents.


How to Use Ceylon Cinnamon

Ceylon cinnamon can be used in both stick and ground form. Cinnamon is equally potent in either form, and ground cinnamon is much easier to add to most dishes. Keeping your cinnamon in an airtight container can help keep it from losing its flavor.
