Ceylon cinnamon, grown primarily in Sri Lanka, is referred to as "true" cinnamon. Used as a spice for countless years, cinnamon comes from the bark of various species of cinnamon trees. The leaves, blossoms, fruits, and roots of cinnamon trees have also been used in food preparation and for medicinal purposes. There are differences in the chemical make-up of cinnamon products generated from different types or parts of cinnamon trees. Studies performed in people don't clearly sustain utilizing cinnamon for any health and wellness problem. A 2019 testimonial of 18 researches of cinnamon supplementation in people with diabetes suggested that cinnamon could lower blood glucose but didn't have a substantial result on hemoglobin A1C, which shows blood sugar levels over a longer period of time. It's unclear whether cinnamon is useful for weight loss or for controlling blood degrees of cholesterol and relevant lipids. It's vague whether cassia cinnamon works as a bug spray.
