Cinnamon – A tale of spice and drink


The secret of Vietnamese’s  soup recipe that remains untold…

The critical component of the China’s powder mix… 

As once being said, became more valuable than gold…

As widely sold in long orange sticks,

Ceylon and Cassia,

Come in 2 different kinds – yet only 1 has the true “right”

behold … 



Sounds cool, right? The poem is short of a brief introduction of what we’re going to show you about Cinnamon, today’s ingredient of G’lobe Orsim Juice’s menu. Check out more epic lines and beyond at this site if you are still curious. Enjoy the life-changing facts about fruits and vegetables!

Significant fun facts about Cinnamon:

  • In Vietnamese cuisine, “Saigon cinnamon bark” is an important ingredient in the broth used to make “Phở” – Vietnamese’s glamorous noodle soup. It is an evergreen tree indigenous to Southeast Asia.
  • The  Five Spice Powder mixture consists of Chinese cinnamon, star anise, cloves, Sichuan pepper and Fennel seeds.
  • The Cinnamon challenge (do not try this at home) involves consuming one spoonful of powdered cinnamon. You must film yourself eating a spoon ground of it in under 60 seconds without drinking and upload the video. Since there is a lot of water-resistant cellulose and dry components inside, it doesn’t mix with your saliva. This leads to the risk of gagging or choking.
  • It is also a natural ants killer. When an ant inhales cinnamon, it suffocates and dies.  Use it to sprinkle on the ants’ path or around an anthill opening.



1. Improve Oral Hygiene
  • Research shows that cinnamon benefits oral hygiene and could protect against certain strains of bacteria that cause bad breath, tooth decay, cavities and mouth infections.
  • The inner oils have been shown to have potent antibacterial properties. They could be used to combat bacteria in the mouth, acting as a natural mouthwash.
  • Similar to peppermint,  it has a natural flavoring agent in chewing gums due to its refreshing taste.
  • Thanks to the ability to remove oral bacteria, cinnamon has also been traditionally used as tooth powder and a natural remedy for toothaches, dental problems and mouth sores.
2. Sweetens Up Recipes Without Sugar
  • Because of its naturally sweet taste, adding cinnamon to foods and recipes help cut down the amount of sugar. Try using it in coffee, tea, baked goods, yogurt, on fruit  instead of adding extra sugar. This reduces the sugar intake and aid in weight loss and fight Candida, diabetes and low energy.
  • Using cinnamon for its naturally sweet taste is yet another added benefit that can boost blood sugar control.


3. A Natural Preservative
  •  Cinnamon can be used to preserve food. Because there are antibacterial abilities and acts as an antioxidant, it can be used as a preservative in many foods without the need for chemicals or artificial ingredients.
  • A recent study reported that when pectin from fruit was coated with cinnamon leaf extract, it stays fresh for longer.
  • Cinnamon also possesses antityrosinase activities. It’s useful in stopping the discoloration of fruits and vegetables, as they oxidize and begin to rot.
4. Boosting brain power
  • It protected dopamine production systems, and improved motor function in Parkinson’s disease, by targeting brain chemicals involved in glucose and cholesterol.
  • New research shows that another compound in cinnamon is sodium benzoate that works well in the brain. “Le Journal of Neuroimmune Pharmacology” indicated its ability to improve memory, and slow cognitive decline.
5. Plump up your lips
  • Since cinnamon improves blood flow to the surface of skin, it can cause your lips to plump up with no injections.
  • Simply mix 1/2 teaspoon or so of ground cinnamon with Vaseline or a few drops of oil (vitamin E, coconut, or even olive oil). Make a paste to apply to your lips, and let the mixture sit for a few minutes before rinsing it off.
