Longer article, about 2,500 words, detailing the health benefits of the spice, cinnamon, with emphasis on its ability to regulate blood sugar levels. Cinnamon is obtained from the bark of one of two types of Asian and Indonesian trees of the species Cinnamomum. The Ceylon variety, also known as true cinnamon, contains the aldehyde, or aromatic oil, known as cinnamaldehyde. It's thought to be the source of its amazing health benefits. The other type of cinnamon is called cassia cinnamon. There is rather strong evidence that cassia cinnamon can regulate blood glucose levels, making it very important for people with Type 2 diabetes. Both varieties are natural antibiotics. Both types of cinnamon are mildly sweet, but contain no sugar and very few calories. Cinnamon is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants protect body cells from damage from oxidation and they also boost the immune system. Cinnamon is a natural skin purifier and cleanser. It improves blood circulation to the skin's upper layers, giving a natural glow.
