(Cinnamonum verum)
Everyone knows cinnamon as a spice in every kitchen and every store. However, only some people know about its real healing properties.

Hundreds of years ago, cinnamon was used to fight various colds. Its pleasant aroma improves mood and helps fight depression, fears, and neuroses. It promotes relaxation. That is why cinnamon oil is often used for aroma lamps and candles. Cinnamon contains a large number of vitamins and minerals. Therefore, regular consumption will saturate the body with valuable compounds and normalize the functioning of most organs and systems.
Cinnamon is rich in minerals such as potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. It contains B vitamins, vitamins C, A, and PP and tannins, essential oils, and fiber.

Interesting fact: Cinnamon has a less elegant "double" – cassia, a Chinese brown tree. Cassia bark is much thicker, has a reddish tint, and resembles wood. Cinnamon, on the other hand, is less dense and crumbly and has a much better flavor. Making seasoning from cassia bark is more cost-effective; therefore, most of the cinnamon on supermarket shelves is actually cassia bark.
