What Are the Benefits of Cassia?

Cassia’s primary constituent is Cinnamaldehyde, a monoterpene aldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde has been researched for its antioxidant benefits, its ability to support the gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, and circulatory systems, and for overall metabolic support.* 

Cassia can be used as a flavoring in cooking as a replacement for cinnamon. When taken internally, Cassia is a helpful digestive aid and can be used to support healthy metabolism.* Experimental research suggests that Cassia essential oil may help support healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range.* 

Are Cinnamon and Cassia the Same?

doTERRA Cassia is steam distilled from the inner bark and twigs of the fragrant evergreen Chinese Cinnamon tree. Although botanically distinct from so-called “true cinnamon,” Cassia is often confused with it. Since true cinnamon is more costly, ground cassia is the most popular variety of cinnamon spice in many parts of the world. It is used in traditional Chinese health solutions to support the digestive and circulatory systems.*
