HEALTH CLAIMS ABOUT CINNAMON AND HONEY
honey and cinnamon for weight loss -- does it work?
One study from 2017 found that one of the compounds in cinnamon (cinnamaldehyde) may increase your body temperature via a process called thermogenesis. But all foods trigger a thermic effect in the body which helps to digest, absorb and dispose of food nutrients. Another study from 2011 found that replacing sugar in the diet with honey may contribute to weight loss. One possible reason for this is that honey taste sweeter than sugar so you can eat less to satisfy your sugar cravings. But there are no specific clinical studies regarding whether eating a mixture of honey and cinnamon is beneficial for weight loss.

This drink also strengthens the immune system, helping ward off colds as well as some viruses. Applying a paste of honey and cinnamon to infected gums can ease pain and bleeding as well as slow the progression of the infection. When consumed together, honey and cinnamon can ease digestion, helping to prevent gas. Honey and cinnamon also provide energy, making people more mentally alert and ready for physical activity. The two biggest claims for honey and cinnamon are that they enhance the ability to lose weight, and they are effective against some forms of cancer. While these latter two claims are unproven, nature does provide an amazing range of natural healing substances, most of which are untested by medical science. Relying exclusively on honey and cinnamon for either weight loss or eliminating cancer is not advisable."
