Best Cinnamon Extract (Cinnulin PF) Description from Doctor's Best
Cinnamon, a staple ingredient in apple pie, has remained one of the world's favorite spices throughout recorded history. The evergreen cinnamon tree (Cinnamomum verum), considered to be true cinnamon, is native to Sri Lanka. Chinese cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia or Cinnamomum aromaticum), the cinnamon most commonly sold in the U.S., goes by the name "Cassia." Usage of cinnamon in Chinese medicine is said to date back over 4,000 years. Mentioned in the Bible, cinnamon was imported to Egypt and Europe from the Far East by 500 B.C. In addition to its value as a culinary spice, cinnamon has traditionally been utilized for immune health and supporting digestive function. True cinnamon and cassia are very similar; cassia has a more pungent flavor. Cassia buds can be found in potpourri and used as a flavoring agent in sweets and beverages.
Recent research has revealed that constituents in cinnamon bark called procyanidin Type-A polymers help maintain the body's ability to metabolize glucose in a healthy way. Best Cinnamon Extract is Cinnulin PF, a patented, water extract of cinnamon that contains Type-A polymers. Cinnulin PF is a registered trademark of Integrity Nutraceuticals International and is manufactured under US Patent #6,200,569.
