Cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia) is a wonderfully aromatic kitchen spice that offers a multitude of health benefits. It enkindles the digestive fire, eliminates natural toxins from the GI tract and promotes healthy absorption. It supports circulation throughout the body and promotes warmth in the extremities, joints, kidneys and lungs. Cinnamon supports healthy expectoration and removes excess kapha from the head and chest. It nourishes the reproductive system in both men and women and promotes healthy, comfortable menstruation.
It is also used in natural cosmetic formulation.
