"In ancient Egypt, cinnamon was used as a medicine and for embalming mummies, in Rome, it was valued more highly than gold. Through the middle ages, its sweet woody scent made it popular in cooking – especially in dishes such as pies and pastries. While Chinese medicine and Ayurveda have long revered cinnamon as a superpower used to treat a plethora of illnesses such as colds, indigestion, and cramps and to improve energy, vitality and circulation. Cinnamon heats the digestive fire – thus promoting a healthy digestive system. It also has a natural cleansing action that stops the growth of microbes and kills bacteria. It is a great source of manganese, fiber, iron, and calcium."
