What products should I use?
There is honey and honey, just as there are cinnamon.
We recommend using organic honey, produced by a small local producer, this is the best way to be sure of the quality of the honey. Indeed, many kinds of honey sold in supermarkets and on the internet is mixed with sugar, which, in addition to diluting the virtues of honey, adds the harmful effects of sugar on health.
We also recommend using raw honey that has not been cooked at high temperatures. It is a common practice to keep honey liquid without hardening.
The big question when using cinnamon is: which one to choose? Indeed, there are two varieties, which come from the bark of two very similar but different tree species:
•Cinnamomum Verum, known as Ceylon cinnamon, also known as real cinnamon,
•Cinnamomum aromaticum or Cinnamomum cassia said cinnamon from Indonesia or China, also called false cinnamon.
Let’s be clear: when it comes to lowering blood sugar and cholesterol, variety doesn’t matter, they have the same effect. That said, for long term use, we still recommend Ceylon cinnamon.
The recipe for honey with cinnamon:
1 tablespoon of Ceylon cinnamon
2 tablespoons of honey
-Combine honey and cinnamon. You can add a little more honey if the consistency is too thick, but not too much either, the cinnamon honey should be thick enough.
-Then pour the spicy mixture into a jar with a stopper and keep it in a cool, dark place.
Honey with cinnamon does not go bad, you can prepare it in advance and consume it for a long time.
How to take this remedy?
Some say the classic dosage is one tablespoon per day, 1 teaspoon for children. Seems like a lot to me, I’d rather say a big teaspoon for adults, 1/2 teaspoon for kids.
These are two pleasant ingredients to eat if you like them, so you can eat this dose directly in the morning on an empty stomach.
For those who don’t like to eat it straight away, you can dilute cinnamon honey in a drink: in water, fruit juice, milk, tea, coffee, in yoghurt.
To make a mouthwash, to have good breath, dilute a teaspoon of cinnamon and honey in a glass of water and rinse your mouth with it.
To make a mask for the skin, mix 3 doses of honey with 1 dose of cinnamon powder, and apply this treatment to pimples or blackheads before sleeping. The next day, rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Repeat the treatment every day for 2 weeks, until the imperfections disappear.
Do not use it in your kitchen, as the heat will reduce its effect on the body.
We recommend that you always seek the advice of your doctor before starting any treatment or cure, as natural products can cause an interaction with certain drugs.
Excessive consumption of cinnamon can cause side effects: increased heart rate increased blood pressure and palpitations.
If using Indonesian cinnamon (Cinnamomum cassia), do not exceed 1/2 teaspoon per day. The coumarin present in this variety is an anticoagulant, be careful if you are on anticoagulant treatment.
Rarer, coumarin, in large amounts and over long term consumption can cause liver damage.
Excessive consumption of honey (more than 10 tablespoons per day!) Can cause stomach cramps, constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, high blood sugar levels and low blood pressure.
This cinnamon honey is not recommended for children under 2 years old and pregnant women, not as a contraindication, but as a precautionary principle.
