Cinnamon  (or cinnamon) identifies several plants in the family of Lauraceae, notably the  Cinnamomum zeylanicum, (native to Sri Lanka, hazel-colored and more aromatic and more valuable) and the Cinnamomum cassia (native to China ).

The phytonutrients contained in cinnamon have anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant actions.

Cinnamaldehyde contributes to blood sugar control, so it is useful for those with diabetes.
Cinnamon stimulates the immune system, and is a good natural remedy for colds, influenza, diarrhea, flatulence and dyspepsia because of its antimicrobial and astringent action.

Cinnamon should be consumed with care because it contains coumarin, which is a substance that smells pleasant but can be toxic to the liver and kidneys if obviously taken in high doses.
