Nutrition Fast Fact

The Other Cinnamon

Cinnamon is one of nature’s gifts, with a delicious and inviting scent and satisfying taste, that like other herbs and spices, delivers very high amounts of antioxidants too.

There’s just one catch: the most common form of cinnamon in the US is cassia cinnamon that contains coumarin, a substance that in high amounts, can damage the liver. So be sure to get Ceylon cinnamon that doesn’t deliver coumarin, only the good stuff. At LeafSide we only use Ceylon cinnamon, and only the tastiest organic forms we can find.
