  1. I’ve mostly avoided Cinnamon, I was put off it when everyone started doing the cinnamon challenge which basically meant drying out your mouth and choking for a while…but I do like Cinnamon rolls x

  2. I adore cinnamon and try to use it whenever I can. Mixed with manuka honey I find it’s an effective cold/cough aid, and also adds a warming touch of sweetness to a pork dish. Lovely round up of benefits, thank you!

  3. How much coumarin can you consume before it becomes toxic? Is coumarin removed from store bought ground cinnamon? I’d also be interested learning more about how it can help the gut, given I have IBS

    1. Hi. Coumarin isn’t removed from shop-bought cinnamon. I personally wouldn’t have more than 1/2 tsp. Usually, I use a pinch.
      Apparently, a 73-year-old woman had liver damage after taking cinnamon supplements for only a week.
      You can buy Ceylon cinnamon tea which naturally has lower coumarin.
      Here is an article on herbal teas which may relieve IBS. I find peppermint helps me. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/320705
      Cinnamon can help to promote good bacteria in our guts which help our overall health.
      It may not be suitable for people who have low blood sugar levels as it lowers them.
      I hope this helps. Thanks for your questions. πŸ˜€
