Cinnamon is commonly found foods and teas. Scientifically, cinnamon is known as Cinnamomum verum. Cinnamon bark oil, young cinnamon bark, cinnamon leaf, and cinnamon leaf oil are all used in herbal formulations and as flavoring agents.
Cinnamon has a number of volatile oils that make up its active constituents. These volatile oils have a effects such as antispasmodic, antiflatulent, and appetite stimulation. More specifically, cinnamon also contains cinnamaldehyde, which makes up 60-80% of the volatile oils. Cinnamalehyde is thought to be a stimlulant in low doses and a sedative in high doses for the central nervous system (CNS). However, these activities are diminished through when cinnamon is prepared as a tea as the oils evaporate. Cinnamon also has tannin constituents that have astringent properties and posses antidiarrheal abilities.
