From the earliest herbal writings almost 5000 years ago, cinnamon has imparted its exotic flavor to modern civilization. The two principal species of cinnamon, verum, and aromaticum, were treasured for enhancing food as well as for a host of important health applications. This herb was more precious than gold, and spice traders zealously guarded their secret spice roads to Burma and Ceylon, the ancient sources of cinnamon. The explorations of di Gama and Columbus were inspired by the hope of finding new pathways to this herb, and it is fair to say that wars have been fought - and new continents discovered - all to feed the world's hunger for this spice.
Today's explorers wear lab coats and journey in uncharted scientific waters, but they still look to cinnamon for inspiration. And when looking at the activity of this ancient spice, scientists have recently discovered the metabolic equivalent of a new continent. Research at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and other prestigious institutions suggest that cinnamon possesses a unique power amongst botanicals - it assists the body's conversion of sugar (glucose) into energy. As part of your healthy diet and lifestyle, Cinnamonforce promotes healthy weight management by helping glucose do its primary work - creating immediate cellular energy - rather than ending up as "stored" potential energy in the form of fat deposits.*
