Organic Traditions Organic Cinnamon
Cinnamon has been revered in India, China and the Middle East for centuries. It has been used in Ayurvedic Medicine as well Traditional Asian Medicine in a broad range of both culinary and medicinal applications. The characteristically sweet taste of cinnamon is due to the presence of cinnamaldehyde. This balancing herb supports many systems of the body. According to the energetic principles of Ayurveda, Cinnamon is pungent, sweet and astringent in the Rasa taste energy and heating in action according to Virya. Although it is considered a heating herb, in small amounts it will not aggravate Pitta and is particularly good for Vata. Even though Cinnamon is considered less warming for Pitta than ginger, those with extremely high Pitta should avoid Cinnamon. In Traditional Asian Medicine it is also greatly valued as a strong yang tonic. It is considered a wonderful daily herb to support general well-being, vitality and health.

How To Use In the Kitchen and On-The-Go:
While most supercritical extracts are only available in a liquid form, Organic Traditions proprietary technology offers this dual-extraction in an easy to use, semisoluble, free flowing powder. The powder is extremely concentrated. Adjust the amount for your needs and for each unique application. ⅛-¼ of a teaspoon of Full Spectrum Cinnamon powder can be added to 8-16 oz. of water, coconut water, any beverage, smoothie or recipe. Make warm tea-like infusions by adding the powder to warm water (not boiling) and a natural sweetener of your choice such as Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup or Organic Traditions Coconut Palm Sugar. A cup of Cinnamon tea (do not use hot or boiling water – lukewarm water is fine) with Yacon or Coconut Palm Sugar is wonderful anytime after a meal, when one feels run down or exhausted, with the onset of a cold, flu or sore throat or simply as a daily tonic.
Please note that Cinnamon has a lovely, sweet taste and so a natural sweetener is not really necessary. Add Full spectrum Cinnamon for example to a water bottle with a teaspoon of Organic Traditions Yacon Syrup when you are on the go to create a refreshing and uplifting drink. Simply shake and enjoy. As cinnamon is a hot herb, avoid contact with eyes and be careful not to touch eyes after handling the powder. Lastly, make a mouth and gum rinse or gargle by adding ⅛ of a teaspoon to ½ cup of warm water. As a gargle it combines well with Organic Traditions Full Spectrum Ginger, Amla or Triphala.
