In the Pure Liquid Cinnamon 2 oz Extract, we use Cassia cinnamon.
We use this type because the majority of blood sugar management studies done on cinnamon have been on cassia cinnamon. Although the efficacy of cassia cinnamon is well established, cassia is known to have high levels of a toxin called coumarin. However, the cassia cinnamon used in NuNaturals liquid cinnamon is water extracted to remove coumarin. This allows our customers to enjoy the potency and benefits of cassia, without the toxicity. We use a potent 10:1 extract that is standardized for 8% flavonoids. This means a 100mg serving will have the same potency as 1 gram of cassia powder.
