For more than twenty years, health experts have been thinking about the power of two of the oldest cooking ingredients.
It turns out that not only cinnamon and honey taste very good together, mixing them both is also a medicinal marvel.
Cinnamon has been used by Chinese and Ayurvedic folk medicine for over 2,000 years, and honey also has a rich history.
It has been shown that cinnamon is very useful in the treatment of digestive disorders, menstrual pain and joint pain because it has a large amount of cinnamaldehyde, the molecular compound that reduces swelling and gives cinnamon its flavor and odor.
Honey is also known to reduce swelling and is full of nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins C and B6, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.
The reason why these two foods are so good for the body is mainly because they can control the swelling, fight free radicals and stimulate the immune system.
Here are the best uses for honey and cinnamon.
In the ancient world, Ayurvedic doctors used a paste made of honey and cinnamon to treat arthritis. Today, we understand that this works due to cinnamaldehyde in cinnamon and ingredients such as potassium in honey, which combine to treat the swelling and the things that the body is missing and that cause arthritis.
Mix two tablespoons of raw honey with one tablespoon of cinnamon powder. Place this on the injured area and rub it on your skin. You can also mix honey and cinnamon in a cup of warm water and drink it all the time to treat arthritis.
A mixture of honey and cinnamon can help people with allergies that do not endanger life.
Both honey and cinnamon stimulate the immune system and protect it from bacteria and viruses. Honey and cinnamon also relieve the pain of swelling and congestion that may come from certain allergies.
For this help, you should drink a mixture of honey, cinnamon and warm water all the time.
3. Cardiovascular disease
Some nursing homes in North America have tried cinnamon and honey to help block heart disease. They agree that the mixture helps the flexibility and strength of the arteries.
Eating cinnamon and honey all the time, when combined with a healthy diet and a normal level of activity, can stop heart disease by clearing blocked arteries.
Studies have shown that both cinnamon and honey reduce blood sugar levels. Honey also reduces the level of bad LDL cholesterol and increases HDL cholesterol. This is great because diabetics usually have a higher risk of cholesterol problems.
5. The common cold
In one study, they found that cinnamon decreases the growth of different bacteria that cause the common cold. When you mix this with honey, which increases the immune system, it is excellent for stopping colds.
So, when cinnamon is mixed with raw honey, many people never get sick at all. Or, if they get sick with the common cold, they get better very fast!
