The Benefits of Cinnamon

 The Benefits of CinnamonBy Marie Veverka, Dipl., OM

Many people are getting more and more interested in Chinese herbs. What they may not be aware of is that they may already be using them. There is often a misconception that Chinese herbs are all strange substances that you would find in the likes of a Harry Potter book, but that is not always the case.
