Cinnamon is rather incredible, considering it's just some dried tree bark. This spice has become synonymous with cold-weather holidays and festive treats, but there's more to cinnamon than its cozy smell. This is a rare case of... barking... up the right tree.
Cinnamon has become synonymous with cold-weather holidays and festive treats, but there's more than meets the eye here, including tremendous health benefits.
Cinnamon is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, and also has antiviral and antimicrobial properties. That's pretty incredible for a piece of dried tree bark. In fact, in scientific literature, Cinnamon has some of the most antioxidants (in equal proportions) of any ingredient on the planet, ranking 4th out of fifty ingredients.
All of these qualities make cinnamon a strong defense against a number of diseases and ailments. But when you're developing a coffee alternative, you have to consider more than just health. You also have to consider taste. It's no surprise that cinnamon makes a perfect addition to Okana – providing a rich and savory note to every sip.
