The ingredients for IC-5 lists "Cinnamon bark" first. The detailed info on the IC-5 product page says this is Cinnamomum Burmannii.
The video at fixyourbloodsugar.com says at the 14:50 mark that it's Cinnamomum Cassia, which I gather from the Wikipedia page on cinnamon is just a generic name for stuff that's not "true cinnamon," Cinnamomum verum.
This is straight off a concern for me because I thought BioTrust went out of their way to provide the best, most healthful ingredients in their products.
The concern regarding the use of Cinnamomum cassia is the relatively high concentrate of coumarin, which can be toxic to the liver and kidneys.
So now I need to ask:
- Does IC-5 in fact use the lesser cinnamon Cinnamomum cassia rather than true cinnamon, and if so, what are the levels of coumarin that we are ingesting?
- Are there any plans to modify IC-5 to use true cinnamon, Cinnamomum verum?
