Be Young Essential Oils
Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) was traditionally used mainly as a stomachic and carminative for gastrointestinal complaints and is still used for these conditions today. The bark of Cinnamomum zeylanicum and C. cassia (cinnamon bark) is used as a spice. These two species are the only approved medicinal herbs of the genus Cinnamomum.
Furthermore, due to the various potential effects of cinnamon and its constituents, including anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antioxidant properties, it may prove effective in the supportive treatment of conditions such as cancer or severe viral infections.
