In my series on the sweet spice of cinnamon, I explored its immune, metabolic, and blood sugar balancing benefits. I also highlighted some cautions with a particular variety, cassia, based on its coumarin content.
Thankfully, if one does not have any contraindications and is mindful of dosage, the advantages of using cassia in one’s wellness regime can still be enjoyed.
In my latest article, I discuss more uses for Cassia cinnamon and why, beyond its coumarin warnings, it should not be overlooked. I also review several studies on the essential oil.
- A review of the benefits of cinnamon oil and the caveats to using a spice with coumarin
- The ancient and traditional medicinal uses of Cassia cinnamon
- The pharmacological properties of cassia
- Studies on cassia essential oil that demonstrate its antimicrobial, cellular health, and critter ridding capabilities
