Raw Honey and Cinnamon for Weight Loss: Does it Work?
We all know that in terms of weight loss, exercise and a healthy diet are the most effective methods to lose weight. However, if you have been searching for an all-natural way to speed your weight loss along, cinnamon and raw honey may be the answer.
Both honey and cinnamon are delicious superfoods with many proven health benefits. Adding honey and cinnamon is an increasingly popular way to naturally boost your metabolism to help increase weight loss.
Raw Honey For Weight Loss
Throughout history honey has been used as a popular health food and for medicinal purposes. Honey is both antiviral and antimicrobial (it can destroy harmful bacteria). Numerous studies have indicated that honey can help treat burns and wounds when it’s spread on the skin.
Honey contains healthy compounds, called phenolic and flavonoids acids, which include anti-inflammatory and antioxidants. However, it’s important to note that not all honey is created equal. Evidence suggests raw honey has more health benefits than regular honey, as it holds more ingredients from the beehive.
Cinnamon For Weight Loss
Flavorful and aromatic, cinnamon has been used throughout history dating back to the Ancient Egyptians, and by the time of the Romans, cinnamon was more expensive than silver. Research shows cinnamon is antiparasitic and antimicrobial. It is full of antioxidants and has been shown to lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and triglycerides levels.
Cinnamon and Raw Honey for Weight Loss
While cinnamon and honey may both have a range of positive effects on your health, few studies have shown how they can support weight loss, including:
- a 2010 study showed that honey can activate hormones that suppress the appetite.
- a 2011 study found that substituting sugar with honey can help inhibit weight gain.
- a 2016 study in the European Journal of Nutrition showed that daily consumption of manuka honey mixed with cinnamon, chromium and magnesium was able to help diabetics lose weight.
- a 2017 study found cinnamaldehyde, a compound found in cinnamon, may stimulate thermogenesis. During thermogenesis, the body creates heat. As your body creates heat it burns calories.
One of the easiest ways to add cinnamon and honey to your daily nutritional routine is by adding it to your daily cup of tea. For those who don’t drink tea, you can also add cinnamon and honey to a warm glass of water. With as little as a teaspoon of honey and a teaspoon of cinnamon, you can boost your weight loss. In addition to all of their individual health benefits, the metabolising properties of these two ingredients will help you gain energy throughout the day.
