Apple - The apple is originally from Kazakhstan. Proof of this is the name given to its capital "Alma Ata" which, translated, corresponds to the expression "Full of Apples". It was only in 1500 BC that its seeds spread across the European continent. It is believed that several varieties of apples were created through their cultivation in British territory. Currently, there will be close to 8,000 varieties of apples around the world. Apple consumption can treat the womb and promote the proper functioning of the stomach. In addition, it may contribute to the reduction of cholesterol through its action in the elimination of harmful toxins in the body.
Cinnamon - This is a woody, warm-tasting spice originating in Sri Lanka, deep in the south of the Asian continent. It was through maritime and land discoveries that cinnamon spread to various regions of the world. Cinnamon is a classic spice known for the rapid transmission of positive energies through its intense aroma when used in the preparation of teas and culinary dishes. Cinnamon can be used either stick or ground, with no loss of flavour between them. When used sustainably, it can take up to 20 years for cinnamon to develop a number of its oils. Its spicy flavour is close to that of cloves.
Cinnamon must have been recorded for the first time in Ancient Egypt. It is important to point out that the cinnamon stick should not be ingested, but applied as a whole as an aromatic ingredient. Know that the lighter the bark of the cinnamon stick, the better its quality. Scientifically called "Cinnamomum zeylacium", cinnamon comes from the trunk of the cinnamon tree. Between the 14th and 16th centuries, there was a range of spices that would have been used as a trade currency for various purposes.
