Where can you get cinnamon naturally?

ANSWER

Cinnamon is an additive to countless foods. When purchased in the store, common spice cinnamon could be one of two types or a mixture of both. It is either "true" or Ceylon cinnamon, which is easier to grind but thought to be less effective for diabetes. However, it's more likely to be the darker-colored cassia cinnamon.
