The Maximum Amount Of Cinnamon You Can Safely Eat Each Day
There are many health advantages to eating cinnamon in moderation, but there is a fine line you don't want to cross with cinnamon consumption. There are two types of cinnamon: Ceylon, named after the former nation of Ceylon, which is now known as Sri Lanka, and Cassia, which is most well-liked in America.
Cassia cinnamon contains a high concentration of coumarin, a chemical component linked to liver damage and an increased risk of getting cancer. Because of these concerns and other side effects, including mouth sores or breathing problems, it is advised to consume no more than 0.05 milligrams of coumarin per day for each pound you weigh.
The recommended daily dosage of Ceylon cinnamon is substantially lower than cassia cinnamon, despite the fact that Ceylon cinnamon, true cinnamon, has stronger antioxidant capabilities. The recommended daily intake of cinnamon is between 1/2 and 1 teaspoon, or 2 and 4 grams, per day.
