 Cinnamon  is  a  natural  water  AQUAmax  care  for  tropical  water  quality  in  the  aquarium
 High  quality,  low-coumarin,  true  Ceylon  cinnamon  from  Sri  Lanka
 Increases  vitality  and  well-being  on  a  natural  basis
 Protects  and  maintains  the  valuable  tannins,  essential  oils  and  humic  substances
 Shrimp  and  snails  appreciate  the  hiding  places  as  Cinnamon  Bark  and  fiber  suppliers
 Fascinating,  reddish  color  under  water
 
 application
 1  to  100  liters  of  water  enter  directly  into  the  aquarium  water  before  or  shortly  (~  1  hour).  The  Cinnamon  cinnamon  sticks  go  in  after  a  short  time  and  swell  easily  in  water.  After  3  -  4  weeks  of  cinnamon  loses  its  pink  color  and  has  released  the  active  ingredients.  Renew  Now.
 Refer  here  !!
 
 is  it  beneficial  for  shrimps?  how  ?  does  shrimp  feed  on  microbes  ?  or  it  helps  in  maintaining  water  quality  ??  pls  explain  experts

 from  what  I've  gathered  from  other  sites  -->  cinnamon  sticks  have  antimicrobial  properties.  so  if  one  makes  a  cave  or  similar  hiding  structures  in  an  aquarium  using  these  sticks  then  the  baby  shrimp  and  fry  hiding  in  it  will  be  naturally  protected  by  its  antimicrobial  properties.
 
 --
 Cinnamon  sticks
 Antibacterial  and  antifungal  thanks  to  essential  oils  and  tannins

 Dosage:  1  cinnamon  stick  (use  organic  True  or  Ceylon  cinnamon  -  not  Cassia  cinnamon,  its  cumarin  content  would  be  too  high  -  and  never  any  decorative  cinnamon  sticks  from  floristics)  with  a  length  of  5  to  7  cm  to  20  l  of  tank  water,  the  stick(  may  remain  in  the  tank  after  treatment

 How  to  Identify  Real  Cinnamon
 Know  what  you  are  buying  !
 
 What  is  REAL  Cinnamon?     -  Real  Cinnamon  -  A  symbol  of,  quality  and  exquisite  taste.  That's  what  you'll  experience  with  your  first  taste  of  Indus  Organics'  premium  Gourmet  Cinnamon  (Cinnamomum  Zeylanicum).  Go  ahead  and  try  it:  You  can  taste  our  sweet  gourmet  cinnamon  right  out  of  the  bag  without  the  spicy  or  hot  taste  of  ordinary  cinnamon  Cassia.  And  no,  we  haven't  added  any  sugar!.  We  don't  sell  Cassia  since  we  care  about  your  liver.  Due  to  the  presence  of  a  moderately  toxic  component  called  Coumarin,  European  health  agencies  have  recently  warned  against  consuming  high  amounts  of  cassia.  Coumarin  is  known  to  cause  liver  and  kidney  damage  in  high  concentrations.  True  Ceylon  cinnamon  has  negligible  amounts  of  coumarin.Federal  Institute  of  Risk  Management  in  Germany  advises  people  to  stop  using  Casssia  due  to  it  medical  impact  on  liver.  Ceylon  Cinnamon  has  between  2-5  ppm  of  coumarin  compared  to  Cassia  (2000-5000  ppm).  Our  Ceylon  Cinnamon  is  tested  at  US  lab  for  Coumarin  content.  Ceylon  Cinnamon  has  about  0.001  milligram  of  Coumarin  per  tea  spoon.  Cassia  has  1000  times  more  Coumarin  than  Ceylon  Cinnamon.  Not  All  Cinnamon  are  the  Same
 
 Cinnamon  from  Ceylon  is  quite  different  from  the  Cassia  commonly  sold  in  the  United  States.  Our  cinnamon  is  the  original,  sought  after  by  the  Romans,  Marco  Polo,  and  later  European  traders  who  finally  found  "the  source"  in  Ceylon,  now  Sri  Lanka.  (Zeylanicum  is  the  Latin  word  for  Ceylon).  Cinnamon  Zeylani-come,  also  known  as  True  Cinnamon,  is  native  to  Sri  Lanka.  By  contrast,  the  majority  of  ground  cinnamon  currently  sold  in  the  United  States  is  actually  Cinnamomum  Cassia.  Cassia  is  cultivated  in  China  and  Indonesia  from  the  aromatic  bark  of  the  Chinese  cinnamon  tree.  The  corky  outer  bark  is  not  removed  in  the  production  of  cassia,  which  is  more  pungent  and  robust  than  True  cinnamon.  It  is  not  as  delicate,  sweet  or  subtle  as  the  cinnamon  produced  in  Sri  Lanka.
 
 A  Difference  for  Good  Health
 
 Cinnamon  is  antimicrobial  and  also  restrains  the  growth  of  fungi  and  yeast,  making  it  potentially  useful  in  the  treatment  of  allergies.  Cinnamon  also  holds  promises  for  people  with  diabetes,  because  it  appears  to  stimulate  insulin  activity  thereby  helping  the  body  to  process  sugar  more  efficiently.  You  see,  that  cinnamon  roll  may  not  only  taste  good,  but  be  good  for  you,  too!.  There  has  been  recent  studies  on  Cinnamon  suggesting  their  usage  for  blood  sugar  control.  Paul  Crawford  (paul.crawford@nellis.af.mil)  has  done  work  on  effectiveness  of  Cinnamon.  Ceylon  Cinnamon  has  been  researched  for  many  usages.  Visit  the  latest  studies.
 
 Cinnamon  Keeps  you  alert
 
 Doctors  at  Atlantic  health  in  NJ  suggests  that  Cinnamon  helps  you  feel  alert  by  possibly  increasing  blood  flow  to  the  brain.  Try  adding  Ceylon  Cinnamon  to  the  morning  cup  of  coffee  or  tea.  We  have  created  a  blend  of  spices  for  making  Organic  masala  chai  at  home.  This  Masala  Chai  blend  is  made  with  ceylon  cinnamon,  cardamom  pods,  cloves,  fennel  seeds  and  malabar  black  peppercorns.  Why  go  to  big  coffee  shops  to  get  masala  chai?.
 
 Can  you  tell  the  Difference?  (Yes!)
 
 First  picture  shows  the  soft  Real  Ceylon  Cinnamon  sticks.  These  sticks  are  very  soft  and  one  can  see  the  bristles.  Second  picture  shows  the  hard  Cassia  sticks  that  are  reddish  brown  in  color  and  have  single  CURL  that  closes  inward.  One  can  easily  grind  the  Ceylon  Cinnamon  sticks  in  an  electric  grinder.  You  may  burn  the  grinder  if  tried  on  Cassia  !.  You  can  easily  chew  the  Ceylon  cinnamon  sticks.  Click  on  the  link  to  buy  Organic  Ceylon  Cinnamon  online.  Watch  a  video  about  the  history,  usage,  medicinal  properties  and  production  of  premium  organic  Ceylon  Cinnamon  from  Sri  Lanka
 
 
 Taste: Real  or  True  Cinnamon  is  sweet  and  delicate  where  as  Cinnamon  Cassia  is  strong  to  peppery
 Color: Real  Cinnamon  is  a  tan  color,  whereas  Cinnamon  Cassia  is  a  reddish  brown  to  dark  brown.
 Look: Cinnamon  Cassia  bark  is  thicker  because  its  outer  layer  isn�t  stripped  off.  For  that  reason,  Cassia  sticks  curl  inward  from  both  sides  toward  the  center  as  they  dry.  Real  Cinnamon  sticks  curl  from  one  side  only  and  roll  up  like  a  newspaper  as  shown  above.
 Feel: The  surface  of  Cinnamon  Cassia  is  rough  and  uneven,  whereas  Real  Ceylon  Cinnamon  bark  is  smooth.
 Usage:   Real  Ceylon  Cinnamon  is  perfect  in  sweet  and  subtle  dishes  that  require  a  delicate  flavor.
