While the health benefits of both honey and cinnamon have been well documented (and acknowledged) separately, a combination of the two will offer the ‘best of both worlds’ to anyone who wishes to enjoy the curative properties but also other health benefits that come along with this uncanny combination.

So, here is a list of reasons why one should take a combination of honey and cinnamon:

Benefit #1: Reduces cholesterol

Two tablespoons of honey and three teaspoons of cinnamon when mixed in 16 ounces of tea can reduce one’s (bad) cholesterol levels by 10 % in a matter of two hours. Honey, by itself, is used with food as a method to keep cholesterol in check.

Benefit #2: Cures the common cold

If you have a chronic cold, blocked sinuses and the common cold, an excellent remedy to alleviate this ailment can be by taking a mixture that consists of one tablespoon of honey and ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon.

Benefit #3: Cures infertility

According to the methods of ancient medicine, a mixture of these two substances can cure infertility for both men and women. Not only will combination strengthen the semen of men but can also help women conceive if they cannot do so.

Benefit #4: Aids in Weight Loss

Even if you find yourself “overweight” as a person, a mixture of honey and cinnamon that has been boiled in a cup of water should be taken on an empty stomach in the morning. The effectiveness of this mixture lies in the fact that it does not allow the fat to accumulate.

Benefit #5: Reduces toothache

One teaspoon of cinnamon powder and five teaspoons of honey can be applied three times a day to one’s teeth (in the case of a toothache) and that will result in the immediate reduction of pain within 15 minutes.
