In the recent past when we were interacting with some aged people, we came to know the wonderful effect of DALCHINA CHEKKA in Telugu; Varaanga in Sanskrit; Daalchine in Hindi; Cinnamon in Botany etc. We have referred to the relevant texts in Ayurvedic Materia Medica and as per the Authorized Version the information relating to the tree is as under.

It is a tree and it is grown in Asian countries more particularly in India, Ceylon, and China. The Indian Botanical name of it is INDIAN CINNAMON (c. Iners); in Ceylon it is Ceylon Cinnamon (C.Zeylanicum) and in China it is Chinese Cinnamon. According to BHAVA PRAKASIKA the China based tree is one of the best and the next best is that of Ceylon. Indian-based trees are considered least effective in terms of Botanical values. It is called as LATA PARNI in South India. In Sanskrit it is also called as GUDTWAK. According to ATRI SAMHITI – VAHNI MANDYA NILAHARA MADHMANAAKSHATA NASANAM VANTYU KLESA PRASAMANAM SANGRAHI DASANANTI HRUT, TWNCHA TAILAM RAJAH SRALITOYE KSHIPTAM NI MAJJATI. According to this application of this tree trunk dried piece is quite safe and comfortable.

According to Vaideva Nighantu – the juice of Dalchina Chekka is capable of arresting dysentery, blood motions, and vomiting too.

In Indian Traditional Systems, this is also taken as a part of TAAMBOOLAM – pan. Thus a system is developed in Indian Houses to consume it in little quantities every day after meal. In some parts of the country it is also used as a main spicy food in MASAALAAS etc.

In the recent report it is observed that this is capable of acting as a remedial measure for diabetes. Thus it is likely to be a promising natural boon for the DIABETIC in the days to come.

I have already informed you that I am not capable of getting this tested in a lab, but restrain myself to the experiences only. IT IS DUE TO PAUCITY OF FUNDS. We have many plans to help the less fortunate in the society particularly in health matters. We have energy to interact with the tribal of forests who are more familiar with this type of techniques; we can travel; we have energy to bring the outcome of our research to the Global use; BUT SURELY WE ARE NOT CAPABLE FINANCIALLY to undertake these studies. MOST OF OUR STUDIES ARE HANGING UP AT THIS POINT, lest we would have brought certain unusual wonders to the benefit of the Society by this time.
