Benefits of Ceylon cinnamon. NOT CASSIA One of these is the “real” cinnamon, and the other is not. Ceylon cinnamon is the “true” cinnamon and it offers numerous health benefits to those who consume it. But the most important difference between Ceylon & Cassia is that Cassia has high levels of coumarin, which is toxic to the liver. Even small quantities of coumarin can contribute to liver damage. Ceylon has virtually undetectable amounts of coumarin.
According to a study appearing in the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Ceylon cinnamon helps to boost HDL cholesterol, which is the good cholesterol. This improves total cholesterol and can be instrumental in reducing the health risks associated with cholesterol.
A separate study appearing in Diabetes Care Journal reports that people with type 2 diabetes who consumed cinnamon for “40 days followed by a 20-day washout period” experienced a 7 to 27 percent reduction in LDL cholesterol and a 12 to 26 percent reduction in total cholesterol.

Another report found that chewing gum with cinnamon flavoring, or simply smelling the spice, may help to improve brain activity. A study in Florida concluded that cinnamon served to improve test scores of subjects in relation to attention, memory, and visual motor speed.
