Cinnamon is a spice that comes from the branches of wild trees that belong to the genus “Cinnamomum”.
The unique smell, color, and flavor of cinnamon are due to the oily part of the tree that it grows from. The health benefits of cinnamon come from the bark of the Cinnamomum tree. This bark contains several special compounds that are responsible for its many health-promoting properties- including cinnamaldehyde, cinnamic acid, and cinnamate.
