La cannelle de Ceylan et ses activités biologiques

Abstract : Ceylon cinnamon, Cinnamomum zeylanicum (Blume) is an integral part of history: from the rise of Middle Eastern trade and the big merchant ports, to the conquests of its production sites. Since time immemorial, cinnamon has been used medicinally: in antiquity, cinnamon was used for its digestive properties. Today, the anti-infectious power of its essential oil no longer needs to be demonstrated. Studies extend the use of cinnamon into fields such as the treatment of inflammation, diabetes, cholesterol and cancer. We have shown the extent of its anti-infectious spectrum and its other diverse properties; we have then associated these, in as many cases as possible, with one or several molecules. The abundance of this resource allows us to hope that it may become a source of new active molecules and so become appreciated, finally, for reasons other than its taste and odour.
