Liang Tea Part 3 : Cinnamomum burmannii

Told by Fauzan Azima, (Food Science Doctor IPB) that cinnamon composed of compound sinamaldehid. Sinamaldehid is derived from the compound fenol. In the medical world, has a known compound sinamaldehid nature of anti-platelet aggregation and as a vasodilator in vitro. Platelet cholesterol is attached to the blood vessel. Aggregation (aggregation) platelet caused asterosklerosis or fat harden in the arterial duct in living creatures.
Aterosklerosis triggered a high cholesterol level or blood in hiperkolesterolemia. In addition, he added, the process modifications LDL (low density lipid) or better known as the fat evil, is also the important factors that drive the aterosklerosis. Because LDL pitch modification or pitch oxidation can not be identified makrofag through reseptor normal, so will be arrested with LDL Scavenger reseptor. In the end makrofag will be turned into foam cells and gradually will become aterosklerosis.

According to him, when aterosklerosis clog the blood vessel more than 70%, then the condition is concerned. The very severe situation is person infark experienced heart or stroke. Aterosklerosis disease is synonymous with the twilight age of 40 years and over. But the latest findings, said aterosklerosis also suffered teenagers starting age 12 years. This is because the pattern of eating less food as well high fat and sugar with consumption ektrak cinnamon, aterosklerosis can be prevented. Cinnamon extract obtained through testing using the two solvent is water and ethanol. With the solvent ethanol extract containing cinnamon fenol total 62.25%. This higher degree of ektrak use the water that is equal to 9.3%. Compound that is found flanonoid, tanin, triterpenoid, and saponin.
Potency cinnamon lower total cholesterol in the body have been tried by Fauzan in the rabbit. Evidently, the rabbits were given feed containing cinnamon extract, total cholesterol fell from 44.3 mg / dl to be 139.1 mg / dl, LDL-C of 286.5 mg / dl to be 95.8 mg / dl, and the degree trigliserida from 122.2 mg / dl to be 61.2 mg / dl. More surprising that cinnamon extract was able to increase High Density lipid (HDL-C) from 32.4 mg / dl to be 50.0 mg / dl, and the occurrence of fat in the liver of the rabbit to be 27.47, on average, 3.59 Average grains per field of view of fat in microscope scale 400 times.
Giving ektrak the entry in the family as cassia vera 200 ppm / kg body weight / day is more effective than the provision of 100 ppm / kg / bb / day and drugs aterosklerosis (Lipanthyl 300 mg / Fenolfibrate). In addition to preventing aterosklerosis, cinnamon compound also contains antioxidants which effectively prevent cancer. The strength of the antioxidants extracted cinnamon ethanol greater than BHT (synthetic antioxidants) and tokoferol the same concentration.
Fauzan research conducted since June 2002 to February 2004 under the guidance Prof.Dr.Ir Deddy Muchtadi, MS, Dr.Ir.Fransiska Rungkat Zakaria, M.Sc., and Drh.Bambang Pontjo Priosoeryanto, MS, Ph.D. . While the location is done in various laboratories IPB, Andalas University, Padang, and the University of Indonesia.
According to the Center for Research of Public Health U.S. Department of Agriculture, cinnamon stimulate insulin ability to swing in blood glucose metabolism up to ninefold.
Leader Richard Anderson PhD research told, increase insulin efficiency benefits to the heart and metabolism. And this not only for the implications diabetes who have a problem with insulin, but also for people in general. "Theoretically diabetes can be prevented," he said. Therapy with cinnamon this is done. Good news was reported by a number of diabetics are able to maintain glucose levels with normal consume a quarter teaspoon cinnamon each day.
Cinnamon is also able to treat the disease known as Anorexia (poor appetite disease). Cinnamon, also known able to recover alleviate disease and stomach inflammation, high blood pressure, vertigo, liver, sariawan, cough-cold, acid strand, rheumatism, asthma, cramps and bleeding time.
No matter in any form, powder, stem, or oil, believed to effect medical cinnamon comes from three main components that are in it, among others: cinnamaldehyde, cinnamyl acetate, and cinnamyl alcohol.
