Cinnamaldehyde CAS 104-55-2 is a little-known terpene isolate. In fact, there is still a lot to learn about it, but emerging evidence suggests that cinnamaldehyde terpenes may have many benefits for the body. Before we delve into this, please remember that you should always consult your doctor before starting a new dietary supplement, including those containing terpenes.
Firstly, cinnamaldehyde has a variety of internal and external benefits. Like most terpenes, it can be taken internally and applied topically to reduce bacteria, microbes, viruses, and fungal spores. Like many other spicy terpenes, it excels at killing and repelling insects. Also like most terpenes, it is labeled as an anti-inflammatory agent as it interacts with body receptors to release enzymes that cause inflammation. When used with other terpene isolates, it supports a healthy stomach and gastrointestinal tract due to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Cinnamaldehyde also has significant anti-cancer effects. In animal models, cinnamaldehyde terpenes (and a number of others) were able to reduce the growth of cancer cells and the formation of tumor blood vessels. In one of these studies in mice with colon cancer, cinnamon found that terpenes were able to activate detoxifying enzymes in the colon, helping to prevent further cancer growth. These findings are supported by a secondary study on human colon cells in test tubes, which showed that the cinnamaldehyde terpene in cinnamon can activate antioxidant responses that kill or stop the spread of cancer.
Cinnamaldehyde has a major effect on the circulatory system and may also reduce the risk of heart disease. In animal models, cinnamaldehyde has been shown to lower blood pressure. It can also lower 'bad' LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels while maintaining 'good' HDL cholesterol levels. In a human review study, scientists concluded that 120 mg of cinnamon per day may have all these effects and even increase good cholesterol levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
Cinnamaldehyde can also regulate insulin levels and lower blood sugar. An estimated 87 million American adults have insulin resistance, which is a problem because this important hormone is used to regulate energy use and metabolism, as well as help deliver blood sugar to your body's cells. Cinnamaldehyde can significantly reduce insulin resistance and lower blood sugar levels. Likewise, cinnamaldehyde mimics insulin and greatly increases the uptake of glucose by cells. The anti-diabetic effect of cinnamaldehyde has also been confirmed in many human studies, showing that it can reduce fasting blood sugar levels by 10-29%.
Cinnamaldehyde is also a potent antioxidant, protecting your body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. In a study comparing 26 essential oils of the spice, cinnamon extracts (containing 70-90% cinnamaldehyde) outperformed superfoods such as garlic and oregano oil because they contain high levels of carvacrol terpenes and therefore have powerful antioxidant properties. This fact combined with the insulin and metabolic modulating properties of cinnamaldehyde suggests that it may contribute to cardiovascular and circulatory function as well as heart health.
Cinnamaldehyde also helps prevent neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's. Cinnamaldehyde has been found to inhibit the accumulation of the protein (tau) that causes Alzheimer's disease. In an animal study on mice with Parkinson's disease, cinnamaldehyde helped to protect neurons in the brain and normalize neurotransmitter levels, while also improving their motor function.
