Cinnamon and honey recommendations

by M. Tal

Hi all, I been reading about the benefits of cinnamon and honey. I know you should get raw honey but what about the cinnamon? Is the powder they sell in your local supermarket good enough?

Oh also I been reading that too much of it can be toxic. Any thoughts on that? Well most of the remedies I been reading about only require a tea spoon or two a day.

Thanks for any info.

Hi M.,
I recommend obtaining an organic cinnamon. Herbs tend to be heavily sprayed with pesticides and insecticides. Secondly, if you can obtain Saigon cinnamon or Cassia cinnamon, these two have some extra health benefits like lowering blood sugar levels. You are absolutely correct in that you don't want to consume too much cinnamon in a day as it is a strong blood thinner. The maximum dose would be 4 grams per day which is about 1 and a half teaspoons.

Bee healthy,
Angela
