NuNaturals uses an extract that has been extracted only with water. This eliminates the toxins that are produced when cinnamon is extracted using alcohol. While alcohol extraction is the prefered method for most herbs, Cinnnamon needs to be extracted in this way to maintain the purity of the extract. Alcohol is added to the final liquid product as a preservative. This is a highly concentrated extract and should not be confused with less potent tinctures. It is a 10:1 extract. One dropperful or 20 drops are equal to 1 gram of the powdered herb. This was the amount used successfully in studies. Suggested serving is twenty drops taken with meals. Because it is in a liquid form, it will get into the bloodstream very quickly and so it will get to work faster than tablets or capsules.
Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices used. It was mentioned in the Bible and was used in ancient Egypt not only as a beverage flavoring and medicine, but also as an embalming agent. Cinnamon is mention in one of the earliest books on Chinese botanical medicine. This book was in print as early as 2,700 B.C.
Cinnamon was widely used in Medieval Europe. It became a highly traded commodity traded between the Near East and Europe. Ceylon cinnamon is produced in Sri Lanka, India, Madagascar, Brazil and the Caribbean. Cassia is mainly produced in the Asian countries of China, Vietnam and Indonesia.
