- Bark of the Cinnamomum cassia
- Suitable for use in capsules, tablets and blends
Cinnamon Extract 30:1 is the fine brown powdered extract of the bark Cinnamomum cassia plant. Cinnamon is a spice used worldwide for its sweet warming flavour. It contains several bioactive compounds including:
Cinnamaldehydes and Coumarins that contribute to aroma and taste and MethylHydroxy Chalcone polymers (MHCPs) that contribute towards cinnamons’ insulin sensitising benefits.
MHCP mimics (and acts synergistically) with insulin to effectively increase glucose uptake from the blood to the cells where it can be turned into energy. Removing glucose from the blood after meals high in carbohydrates is essential as high blood sugar for prolonged periods of time can cause blood vessel, eye, nerve, and kidney damage.
Cinnamon Extract 30:1 is suitable for use in capsules, tablets and blends. It is also vegan friendly.
