About Cinnamon

Several studies have shown that cinnamon, clove and rosemary oils had strong and consistent inhibitory effects against various pathogens. Study revealed cinnamaldehyde to be the major constituent of cinnamon oil. Cinnamaldehyde was the predominant active compound found in cinnamon oil. Earlier studies suggested that the antibacterial activity of cinnamon oil was probably due to their major component, cinnamaldehyde and their properties could be multiple.

Cinnamaldehyde is a natural antioxidant and the animal studies suggest that an extract of cinnamon bark taken orally may help prevent stomach ulcer. Cinnamon oil was not harmful when consumed in food products and it inhibited the growth of molds, yeast and bacteria. Cinnamon extract had a regulatory role in blood glucose level and lipids and it may also exert a blood glucose-suppressing effect. The use of commercial cinnamon preparation produced an improvement of oral candidiasis of HIV-infected patients. Cinnamon oil is locally applied with much benefit in neuralgia and headache.
