The ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) assessment developed by the United States Department of Agriculture measures the ability of a substance to disarm harmful free radicals in cells. Free radical theory of aging was conceived by Denham Harman in 1956, and states that an organism age because cells accumulate free radical damage over time. Since this theory was developed, free radical damage within cells has been linked to many disorders.However antioxidants have been shown to prevent damage to cells caused by harmful free radicals.

Research on the health benefits of Ceylon Cinnamon - in the year 2003
A study published in the Diabetes Care journal USA followed Type 2 diabetics is detailed below.
The objective of this study was to determine whether Cinnamon improves blood glucose, triglyceride, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
Research Design and Methods:
A total of 60 people with type 2 diabetes, 30 men and 30 women aged 52.2 ± 6.32 years, were divided randomly into six groups. Groups 1, 2, and 3 consumed 1, 3, or 6 g of cinnamon daily, respectively, and groups 4, 5, and 6 were given placebo capsules corresponding to the number of capsules consumed for the three levels of cinnamon. The cinnamon was consumed for 40 days followed by a 20-day washout period.
After 40 days, all three levels of cinnamon
- Reduced the mean fasting serum glucose (18% - 29%),
- Reduced triglyceride (23% - 30%)
- Reduced LDL cholesterol (7% - 27%)
- Reduced total cholesterol levels (12% - 26%)
No significant changes were noted in the placebo groups. Changes in HDL cholesterol were not significant.
The results of this study demonstrate that intake of 1, 3, or 6 g of cinnamon per day reduces serum glucose, triglyceride, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol in people with type 2 diabetes and suggest that the inclusion of cinnamon in the diet of people with type 2 diabetes will reduce risk factors associated with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases
