How Honey & Cinnamon Can Help Your Immune System
Hippocrates said “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food”.
I love that we have so many options right in our own kitchen and pantry. Most of us have honey and cinnamon. Such tasty additions for coffee, tea, and lots of other dishes.
In the last 10 years, achieving health through more natural means has become very popular. More people are learning about the ways in which injuries and infections have been treated for centuries. It may seem shocking to discover that our world is full of toxins and yet provides a variety of solutions. A few items found in the home stand out, and I will be discussing a couple ways that honey and cinnamon can help boost your immune system.
This golden substance produced by bees has long been associated with healing and health. For thousands of years, people have used honey for application on bandages and science now reveals some of the secrets to its marvelous properties. Studies have shown that honey contains powerful antioxidants. These vitamins and trace minerals help to break down free radicals that can cause massive damage to cells and can possibly protect against a multitude of possible ailments.
Honey is also probiotic, in that it delivers many of the important flora responsible for proper digestion, and the control of metabolism in the body. As honey is digested, the microflora deposit themselves into the stomach and large intestine to aid in digestive function, as well as provide a buffer against harmful microbes by attacking them and destroying their membranes.
Cinnamon is a spice from the inner bark of trees belonging to the the genus of Cinnamomum. This flavorful and festive spice is well known for its contributions to recipes, but it has many hidden properties which make it an important player in the world of natural health. Cinnamon is full of antioxidants, which can help with healthy aging. They also have the ability to help repair cells damaged by cancer causing agents.
Cinnamon is also a powerful anti-inflammatory and can lessen many of the risks associated with heart disease, which include high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Having less stress on the body also means a more efficient immune system and allows the body to fight infection.
When honey and cinnamon are combined, their antimicrobial power is strengthened. The combination of these two powerful antimicrobials and antioxidants may even help to prevent some sickness in people. They also work together by stimulating white blood cell production.
Let’s remember how powerful our kitchen and pantry can be for us.
