Cinnamomum Cassia Temporarily Replaces Cinnamomum Verum in NOW Cinnamon Products
NOW has tested samples of Cinnamomum cassia and it met all our stringent safety and efficacy requirements for cinnamon raw material. Instead of discontinuing this product, we decided to switch to Cinnamomum cassia until a reliable quality supply of Cinnamomum verum is available again. NOW’s thorough analyses of available Cinnamomum cassia allayed concerns over coumarin and cinnamaldehyde content, as these two compounds are present at very low levels and are not a cause for concern based on recent studies and current safety data. Furthermore, Cinnamomum cassia has been better studied for its potential effect on glucose management, a benefit not consistently found using Cinnamomum verum.
Rest assured that once Cinnamomum verum is available again, and the available supply meets our strict quality standards, we’ll reincorporate this species in NOW Cinnamon products.
Cinnamon Bark has been used traditionally as a culinary spice and to support proper digestion. It is known to possess a number of bioactive constituents that exhibit free radical neutralizing activity and other studies suggest that Cinnamon components may support a balanced immune system response to metabolic stressors of everyday life. Additional clinical evidence also indicates that Cinnamon Bark supports healthy glucose metabolism and may help to maintain blood sugar levels already within the healthy range.*
