Cinnamon gets a sponsor in ABC's Adopt an Herb program
The Amercan Botanical Council has announced that Vitatech Nutritional Sciences, a California-based vitamin and supplement formulation company, has adopted cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) through ABC's Adopt-an-Herb Program.

The three year commitment will help ABC keet its HerbMedPro database up to date with the latest scientific and clinical research on cinnamon. HerbMedPro is an interactive and comprehensive database available on ABC's website that provides access to important scientific and clinical research data underlying the use of nearly 250 herbs and their effects on human health.

"The generosity of Vitatech Nutritional Sciences is vital to supporting our unique nonprofit educational mission,"​ said ABC Founder and Executive Director Mark Blumenthal. "As cinnamon's health benefits are increasingly recognized, particularly in the area of blood sugar control in Type 2 diabetes, ABC is able to ensure that the scientific information on cinnamon in the HerbMedPro database is as current and accurate as possible."

This is the 19th​ herb that has been sponsored through the program. Herb records in the database vary in size from those with a large amount of published data — such asGinkgo biloba, with more than 1,000 summarized entries and links — toAcacia catechu(cutch tree or black catechu in the pea family), with fewer than 50. According to ABC, each abstract also is summarized in only one sentence, thereby saving a significant amount of time for the user.
