How can Cinnamon help Weight Loss

A 2003 study published in Diabetes Care showed that as little as one teaspoon of cinnamon per day can boost the body's weight-loss ability by reducing blood sugar and promoting healthier processing of carbohydrates. It also lowers LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) by seven to 27% and total cholesterol by 12 to 26%. Plus, cinnamon has been shown to prevent the metabolic syndrome commonly seen in pre-diabetics. But before you go on piling the spice by spoonful, note that cinnamon contains a chemical called coumarin, which can lead to liver damage if consumed in very large amounts. This is taken From Yahoo Shine

High coumarin in Cassia Cinnamon

Let’s look at coumarin level of Cinnamo and cassis

Studies show that Coumarin levels in cinnamon, even when present, are not an issue. Levels of coumarin found in cinnamon are typically less than 15 mg/kg of the spice compared with over 2,000 mg/kg for cassia.

So now that we got that cleared, we have to use Ceylon True Cinnamon to benefit from Cinnamon Benefits.

What you need to do in order to lose weight using cinnamon 

  • In a small saucepan boil 16oz (2 cup) of water and 1 tsp of cinnamon. 
  • When the water comes to the boiling point, turn off the heat and leave for 5 minutes  
  • Pour the cinnamon mix into two cups 
  • Add 1 tsp of honey into each cup. 
  • Take the fist cup before breakfast and the second cup one hour before sleeping 

This method is a very popular weight loss remedy. 

Difference between Ceylon True Cinnamon and Cassia Cinnamon 

Cinnamon is a popular spice, obtained from the inner bark of several trees from the genus Cinnamomum that is used in both sweet and savory foods. Two species of the cinnamon tree are most common, and provide most of the spice sold worldwide. The spice from Cinnamomum Cassia has a stronger taste and dark brown color. This version of the spice is popular in the United States. Ceylon "True" cinnamon is a common term for the Cinnamomum Zeylanicum, a native of Sri Lanka (Ceylon). Ceylon True Cinnamon is praised for its health benefits and not to mention its deliciousness in apple pie!

When buying cinnamon for a particular purpose or if consumer a large amount of cinnamon its is worth knowing the difference between cinnamon and cassia. The differentiation can be seen mainly in the cinnamon sticks,

1. Ceylon True Cinnamon sticks are light brown in color, they are thin and has a softer appearance. Whereas cassia has a dark brown color, hard and thick sticks.

2. Ceylon True Cinnamon, or real cinnamon from Ceylon is composed of multiple layers like a cigar whereas cassia has a hollow tube and the bark curls inward on both ends.

3. Ceylon True Cinnamon has a delicate aroma but that of cassia is harsh.

4. Try tasting both, Ceylon True Cinnamon has a sweet delicate taste and Cassia has a certain hotness or spiciness.

5. Look for the country of origin, Ceylon True Cinnamon is from Sri Lanka (known as Ceylon when British crown colony), where as cassia is grown in China, Southeast Asia.

6. Cassia is also known as Saigon cinnamon and the real one is called Real cinnamon, Ceylon True Cinnamon or Ceylon cinnamon.

7. Ceylon True Cinnamon contains low levels of coumarin, where as cassia cinnamon contains high levels of coumarin, It is not advisable to consume large amounts of cassia cinnamon. 

8. When it comes to powder it is difficult to identify cassia from Ceylon True CinnamonWikipedia suggests this test: The powdered bark is harder to distinguish, but if it is treated with tincture of iodine (a test for starch), little effect is visible with Pure Ceylon True Cinnamon, but when Chinese cinnamon is present, a deep-blue tint is produced.

Our cinnamon powder is of a mesh size 500 microns with 90% passing through the sieve

Rating I give you five stars *****
I just wanted to say that I bought from Serendip, before but I didn't have them under my favorites and I didn't feel like going out to the kitchen to find the bag with their web address on so I just ordered from one of the other companies on line. I'll tell you that was a BIG mistake the cinnamon tasted like dirt and manure I even tried mixing it with some of this but still had to throw it out. I'll say Serendip, sells the best quality and I will make sure I keep them on my favorites all the time now. Thank-you Serendip, for a quality product. I give you five stars *****
