Cinnamon Extract Overview
Cinnamon extract comes from the bark of Cassia Cinnamon by processing it in water and alcohol solution. Cinnamon Polyphenols, Proanthocyanidins and Flavonoids are considered as its active ingredients. They have potent antioxidant property. Scientific research has revealed that polyphenols in cinnamon bark can help maintain the body’s ability to metabolize glucose in a healthy way. It is widely used in medicine or functional food to help diabetic people regulate blood sugar, especially in Europe and America.
Botanical Source: Cinnamon Cassia
Cinnamon plants have oval-lanceolate, rough-textured leaves approximately 7 to 20 cm in length. There are mainly two types of cinnamon, Cinnamomum verum, or C. zeylandicum or Ceylon cinnamon, which is considered the real cinnamon, and Cinnamomum cassia, or Chinese cinnamon. Harvesters usually cut the inner bark of the tree into the curled “sticks” which you can find in markets, and the bark can also be ground up into powder. With a sweet but pungent taste, cinnamon bark is one of the world’s favorite spices. What’s more, it has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to support proper digestion for more than 4,000 years.

Cinnamon Extract Benefit
Lowering blood sugar
Cinnamon is frequently treated as an anti-diabetic compound, since it reduces the rate at which glucose enters the body. Cinnamon exerts its beneficial control effects in a number of ways.
Cinnamon can inhibit numerous digestive enzymes, such as alpha-glucosidase, sucrase and potentially pancreatic amylase. Via inhibition of these enzymes, cinnamon can decrease the absorption of glucose into systemic circulation and avoid overly significant insulin spikes.
In systemic circulation (beyond the liver) cinnamon also possesses anti-diabetic effects. A special group of compounds in cinnamon, Methyl Hydroxy Chalcone polymers (MHCPs), activate key enzymes that increase insulin sensitivity by stimulating their receptors, and inhibit the enzymes that deactivate their function.
Cinnamon extracts appear to exhibit antioxidant action. In an experiment to determine the wound healing action of an ethanol extract of cinnamon, researchers suggested the significant increase in wound healing was attributable to the antioxidant activity demonstrated.
Soothe an upset stomach
Cinnamon extracts have been used medically to treat gastrointestinal problems and to help calm the stomach. Cinnamon is a carminative, an agent that helps break up intestinal gas that has traditionally been used to combat diarrhea and morning sickness. Both test-tube and some animal studies have found that cinnamon may help to relieve mild abdominal discomfort caused by excess gas. It is used in flatulent dyspepsia, dyspepsia with nausea, intestinal colic and digestive atony associated with cold & debilitated conditions. It is known to relieve nausea and vomiting, and because of its mild astringency it is particularly used for infantile diarrhea.
Relieve Colds and Flu
In both India and Europe, cinnamon has been traditionally taken as a warming herb for “cold” conditions, often in combination with ginger (Zingiber officinale). The herb stimulates circulation, especially to the fingers and toes and has been used for arthritis. Cinnamon is also a traditional remedy for aching muscles and other symptoms of viral conditions such as colds and flu.

Cassia cinnamon contains varying amounts of a chemical called coumarin, which might cause or worsen liver disease. In most cases, cassia cinnamon doesn’t have enough coumarin to make you sick. However, for some people, such as those with liver disease, taking a large amount of cassia cinnamon might worsen their condition.
