It is classified as an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body & mind to cope with stress, anxiety & even reduce cortisol levels. Many of its profound health benefits are due to its high concentration of withanolides , which have been shown to combat inflammation & tumor growth. With antibiotic, antibacterial & rejuvenating properties, this miracle root is extremely nourishing for dry skin, while also promoting firmness & elasticity.
Cinnamon has been valued for thousands of years & dates back to ancient Egyptian times when it was rare & highly regarded as “a gift fit for kings”.

Cinnamon has a warming effect & contains highly potent antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties, supports healthy metabolic function & helps maintain a strong immune system, especially when seasonal threats are high. It has even been found to reduce the growth of cancer cells & inhibit the growth of tumors.
