Video Title: Here Is What Happens If You Eat Honey and Cinnamon Daily.

The author is Natural Cures.  Date Published is November 10, 2016

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 do cinnamon and honey taste great together, mixing the two of them together is also a medicinal wonder.

Cinnamon has been used by Chinese and Ayurvedic folk medicine for over  2,000 years and honey also has a rich history.

Cinnamon, or Cassia, has been shown to be very helpful in treating digestive disorders, menstrual pain, and joint pain because it has a lot of cinnamaldehyde, the molecular compound that brings down swelling, and gives cinnamon it’s taste and smell.

Honey is also known for bringing down swelling, and is full of nutrients like amino acids, vitamins C and B6, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium and zinc.

The reason these two foods are so great for the body is mainly because they can control swelling, fight free radicals and boost the immune system.

Here are the top uses for honey and cinnamon.

1)      Arthritis

In the ancient world, Ayurvedic doctors used a paste made from honey and cinnamon to treat arthritis.  Today we understand that this works because of cinnamaldehyde in cinnamon and ingredients like potassium in honey, which come together to treat the swelling and things the body’s missing that cause arthritis.

  • Mix two tablespoons of raw honey with one tablespoon of powdered cinnamon.  Put this on the hurt area, and rub it into your skin.  You can also mix honey and cinnamon into a cup of warm water to drink it all the time to treat arthritis.

2)      Allergies

A honey and cinnamon mixture can help those with allergies that are not life-threatening.  Both honey and cinnamon boost the immune system and guard it from bacteria and viruses.  Honey and cinnamon also soothe pain from swelling and congestion that can 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 tested using cinnamon and honey to help block heart disease.  They agree that the mixture helps the flexibility and strength of the arteries.

Eating honey and cinnamon all the time when put together with a healthy diet and normal activity level, can help stop heart disease by clearing blocked arteries.

4)      Diabetes

Studies have shown that both honey and cinnamon lower blood sugar levels.   Honey also lowers the level of bad LDL cholesterol and raises good HDL cholesterol.  This is great because diabetics are usually at a higher risk of cholesterol problems.

5)      The Common Cold

In one study, they found that cinnamon lessens the growth of different bacteria that cause the common cold.  When you mix this with honey, which boosts the immune system, it is great 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 quickly!

  1. Thanks for the information about honey and cinnamon. I for one use then in hot toddies when I’m sick, and it always helps to clear me up! I always use the raw honey, not the stuff in the bear – have read it has so much more nutritional value than honey that has been cooked and pasteurized. Another fun honey fact – it doesn’t go bad. Archeologists have found edible honey that’s thousands of years old in tombs.

    1. Oh Wow! Thanks for visiting today Penelope, you certainly seem like you have an interest in honey.  Thanks for sharing some of your great ideas about “hot toddies”. I have never heard that word before, would you mind sharing your recipe? Is it similar to honey and lemon in a hot drink? It’s winter time at the moment in my part of the world and I am sure that both myself and other people would love to hear what a hot toddie is, especially if it can help clear up a cold!  Thanks again and all the best. 

  2. Wow! Thanks for posting about this topic! I use a lot of honey and cinnamon separately but had never considered putting them together for these benefits. So easy and simple too!

    1. Hi Angela. I know me too!!! I had the exact same “light bulb” moment myself. Once I heard it I though “of course!” What else could our ancestors possibly use 200+ years ago to help with pain relief, help to control swelling, fight free radicals and boost the immune system? I am glad than modern laboratory tests can now confirm what our grandparents “just knew” about their bodies, health and healing. Thank you for stopping by our website today.

  3. This is a very informative article. I love both cinnamon and honey and have used them for a while for weight loss.
    Seeing all these benefits I am thinking to start it again.
    There is no exchange for natural remedies and products.We need to encourage each other to eat and drink healthy
    thank you for the information.

    1. Hi Kanza, Thank you for visiting us today.  It’s was great to hear that you had some success with using honey and cinnamon for weight loss.  I am glad to hear that your body responded really well to this combination that has proven so successful time and time again for many centuries now.  I too am looking to refine my diet over the coming weeks.  Thank you for giving me a gentle reminder to take some of my own advice and stock up on Manuka honey and cinnamon.  I am also going to be having some Manuka Honey and Turmeric as well. Thank you for sharing your story with us. All the best.

  4. Hi Bec!

    I love honey and cinnamon! I don’t really use the second one much, just sometimes in deserts.

    But honey, I substitute sugar by it on my teas in winter and specially if I’ve caught a cold, and it’s really relieving.

    I didn’t know they were so good for treating so many things. I usually have allergies in spring and I didn’t think of using them for that, but I’ll do it now.

    Thank you so much for sharing this! 🙂

    1. Hi Israel, Thanks so much for stopping by our site today.  I am glad that you really like honey.  Yes, I agree cinnamon is wonderful in desserts as well. Local Raw Honey from a farmers market could be great for helping your allergies in springtime.  All the best.
