Scientific Name: Cinnamomum zeylanicum

Origin: Sri Lanka


The true original, Ceylon Cinnamon Powder is the only strand that’s considered “real cinnamon”. Not only does it offer the sweet, yet mild, taste we’ve grown to love in our desserts, but it also has several other differences that set it apart from its relatives. Studied quite a bit within the past few decades, researchers believe ground Ceylon Cinnamon may assist with allergies due to its anti-microbial components, while also working to lower blood sugar, improve digestion and decrease blood pressure. Now, that’s one powerfully delicious little spice.

So, if you’re ever looking for an extra reason to indulge in another piece of spiced cake, pumpkin pie or snickerdoodle cookies, just remember to toss in a pinch of this “true cinnamon” and you can rest a little easier after dessert.


Known to have an anti-diabetic effect, organic Ceylon Cinnamon powder provides a distinct mixture of flavonoids, phenolic compounds, and vital nutrients with the potential to regulate the underlying symptoms of diabetes (types 1 and 2). Believed to counteract insulin resistance, the herb’s natural anti-inflammatory properties may also aid in the alleviation or halting of certain effects capable of progressing the disease.


Rich in a number of protective antioxidants, polyphenols, and flavonoids, ground Ceylon Cinnamon can help to reduce many forms of oxidative stress and also ward off free radicals, which promote disease and quicken the aging process. By slowing or eliminating these harmful entities, it allows the body to better heal itself from infection and remove toxins from within. This, in turn, leads to better overall health of the digestive, circulatory, and cardiovascular systems.  

Cardiovascular Health

These same antioxidants, acting in unison with Ceylon Cinnamon’s natural anti-inflammatory properties, may help lower the potential for heart disease and other ailments, as well as the decline of brain function over time. It does so by limiting swelling, soreness, and inflammation throughout the body—especially in the cardiovascular system. These benefits can even assist with the symptoms of muscle soreness, allergic reactions, and other age-related issues.

Healthy Facts

Offering a powerful mix of manganese, calcium, iron, and vitamin K, pure organic Ceylon Cinnamon powder is a powerful protectant for the body and mind. A natural anti-microbial, antibiotic, antifungal, and antiviral, it shields the body from numerous viruses and infections. Many of its compounds have also been proven to reduce the effects of aging in the body, as well as overall mental decline. Additionally, Ceylon Cinnamon powder holds the potential to prevent candida, protect dental health, reduce inflammation in the skin, and even sweeten recipes without the use of added sugars.

The recommended dose of pure organic Cinnamon Powder (Ceylon) is ½ teaspoon, daily.

  • Thanks to its versatile flavor profile, it can be added to nearly any dish for a bold and slightly sweet boost.
  • We recommend sprinkling it atop some delicious ice cream or on your morning toast.
  • For even faster intake, you can also make your own Cinnamon Powder (Ceylon) capsules by utilizing the easy-to-use CAP-M-QUIK Capsule Filling Machine
Portuguese traders first discovered Cinnamon in 1518, while overtaking Ceylon (present-day Sri Lanka). After learning of the spice’s inherent worth, they conquered the kingdom and took control of the cinnamon trade in the process. Just over 100 years later, the Dutch would overthrow that regime and gain a monopoly on the industry for the next 150 years. Eventually, its value dropped as it was replaced by newer commodities like chocolate. Today, it remains one of the cheapest and most commonly used spices in the world. And is found in everything from desserts and drinks to spice blends and sauces.

If stored correctly, our Cinnamon Powder have a shelf life of up to 2 years. To maintain its freshness, it is recommended to always reseal the bag after opening it and removing as much air from the bag as possible. Store in room temperature, away from any heat source or sunlight.

This was purchased in order to help control my blood sugar. I was informed that Ceylon Cinnamon is healthier than the standard cinnamon spice available locally. I sprinkle a teaspoon on my breakfast cereal or in a cup of coffee. it is, to me very palatable. Also, it was a pleasant experience to order from Herb Affair.
