Background: Cinnamomum zeylanicum is an important spice and aromatic crop used in folk medicine. Cinnamon is usually regarded as the bark of the C. zeylanicum tree. Objective: The objective of this study was to determine the antioxidative stress capacity of cinnamon in humans when administered in a regular and controlled manner. Methods: A total of 54 normal subjects were divided into three groups, receiving water, regular tea or cinnamon tea for 2 weeks. Blood samples were obtained before and…

The hepatoprotective, role of Cinnamomum zeylanicum ethanolic extract in carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced hepatotoxic male rats is evaluated to evaluate.
Rat Plasma Oxidation Status After Nigella Sativa L. Botanical Treatment in CCL4-Treated Rats
TLDR
Nigella sativa has marked antioxidant potentials that may be beneficial in alleviating complications of many illnesses related to oxidative/nitrosative stress in humans, but preclinical safety measures should be completed before clinical trials.
ANTIRADICAL PROPERTY OF CINNAMON REDUCES FRUCTOSE‐INDUCED OXIDATIVE STRESS IN RAT LIVER
TLDR
The aqueous extract of the bark remarkably inhibited lipid peroxidation induced by Fe2+–ascorbate system in the control rat liver in vitro and scavenged superoxide and hydroxyl radicals in a dose-dependent manner.
EFFECT OF CINNAMOMUM ZEYLANICUM ESSENTIAL OIL ON ANTIOXIDATIVE STATUS IN BROILER CHICKENS
TLDR
Investigation shows that Cinnamomum zeylanicum essential oil exhibits a significant antioxidant activity in fattening chickens and can be used as a source of antioxidant in dietary supplement.
Beneficial effects of Cinnamomum burmannii in the treatment of diabetes mellitus
TLDR
The results suggest a possible positive influence of cinnamon on heart fibrosis prevention and on insulin secretion in diabetic animal and cinnamon tea ingestion seemed to exert a beneficial hypoglycaemic effect in non-­‐diabetic subjects during postprandial period.

TLDR
The antioxidant enzyme activities were found to be significantly enhanced whereas GSH content was markedly restored in rats fed a fat diet with spices, suggesting that these spices exert antioxidant protection through their ability to activate the antioxidant enzymes.
Cinnamate supplementation enhances hepatic lipid metabolism and antioxidant defense systems in high cholesterol-fed rats.
TLDR
Dietary cinnamate inhibits hepatic HMG-CoA reductase activity, resulting in lower hepatic cholesterol content, and suppresses lipid peroxidation via enhancement of hepatic antioxidant enzyme activities.

TLDR
Water and alcoholic extract of commonly used spices dose-dependently inhibited oxidation of fatty acid, linoleic acid in presence of soybean lipoxygenase, indicating that the spice constituents were resistant to thermal denaturation.
Volatile constituents from Cinnamomum zeylanicum fruit stalks and their antioxidant activities.
TLDR
The volatile oil showed good antioxidant capacity, using the formation of the phosphomolybdenum complex, and a comparison of the chemical composition of the volatile oil was made with that of buds, flowers, and fruits.
Determination of antioxidant potential of volatile extracts isolated from various herbs and spices.
TLDR
The antioxidant potentials of the volatile extracts used in this study were accurately measured by the lipophilic systems, such as the aldehyde/carboxylic acid assay and the conjugated diene assay.
