D 40.1 Complementary medicine not otherwise specified – Discipline specific traditional claim
The volatile oils of cinnamon bark are thought to be the active constituents of cinnamon. Cinnamaldehyde makes up 60% to 80% of the volatile oil from the bark. There are approximately 6000 to 30,000 ppm of cinnamaldehyde in cinnamon bark. The oil has documented carminative and
antispasmodic activity. The antispasmodic activity of cinnamon is due to the cinnamaldehyde.
FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON is a traditional medicine indicated for the maintenance of healthy metabolism and digestion.
FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules are contraindicated in patients with:
– A hypersensitivity to Cinnamomum verum.
– Diabetes (see “WARNINGS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS”)
– Surgery (see “WARNINGS AND SPECIAL PRECUATIONS”)
WARNINGS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS:
FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules should be used with care in patients with diabetes as cinnamon may decrease blood sugar levels. Diabetic patients should monitor their blood sugar levels when taking FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules (see “CONTRA-INDICATIONS”).
FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules should be used with care in patients
undergoing surgery. Patients should discontinue use at least 2 weeks before elective surgical procedures (see “CONTRAINDICATIONS”)
The use of FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules in children and adolescents under 18 years of age is not recommended due to lack of adequate data (see “DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE”).
Effects on the ability to drive or use machinery:
No studies on the effect of FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules on the ability to drive
or operate machines have been performed. It is unlikely that FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules will affect the ability to drive or operate machines.
Theoretically, Cinnamomum verum, as in FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules, may enhance the blood glucose lowering effects of antidiabetic medicines. Patients on antidiabetic medicines should monitor their glucose levels closely when taking FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules (see “WARNINGS AND SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS”)
The dose of the antidiabetic medications may need to be adjusted when taken in conjunction with FLORA FORCE® CINNAMON capsules.
PREGNANCY AND LACTATION:
