The Benefits of Combining Honey Cinnamon and Turmeric

Honey Cinnamon and Turmeric

Recently I was reading an article about a university study in the UK about Parkinsons disease; they had been looking at the benefits of using cinnamon to reduce the shaking effect on people with this debilitating disease. No, I don’t have Parkinsons, but I have inherited shaky hands from my mother’s side of the family.
With that in mind, I went out and bought a cinnamon supplement but was a bit taken aback at the price of nearly a dollar per capsule.

Combining for Taste
I used the month’s supply and in the first week my hands had become steadier. I encouraged my elderly Mother to try cinnamon but unfortunately, it had little effect on her shakiness.
After my month’s supply was used up I didn’t buy any more and, within a few weeks, the shakiness started to return. The cost was a put off but I knew I needed to be back on them and then someone mentioned taking it with honey. Since I also wanted to take turmeric supplement, I decided to combine it with the cinnamon and honey and use it as a spread on toast or crumpets. I have to tell you I love the taste, for me the combination works perfectly.

Turmeric and cinnamon, like many other herbs and spices, do have side effects. For instance, pregnant and lactating mothers should avoid taking them as a supplement as it may harm the child. Diabetics should first check with their health professional.

The Power of Herbs

The benefits of turmeric have long been known and yet many are not proven by medical researchers. I guess the big pharmaceutical companies that fund these researchers don’t need to prove a product that they have no control over, since turmeric and cinnamon are freely available in the supermarkets.

Turmeric has been used in India and South Asia for hundreds of years. As well as using it in their cuisine to create color and flavor, it is also used as an antioxidant; helps to get rid of  free radicals that cause so many health problems; helps flush toxins out of the body and some researchers say it helps to stop the occurrence of cancer and it contains anti-inflammatory abilities, which help many health issues like arthritis, tissue sprains and healing open wounds.
These benefits make it well worthwhile including turmeric in this spread.

Read this article from the Huffington Post talking about the latest research on turmeric.

Cinnamon has long been an additive to enhance sweetness; helps lower LDL cholesterol and blood sugar levels; is considered to have  anti-clotting  properties and may help with brain development.

Tip: When buying cinnamon, look for Ceylonese cinnamon, it’s considered healthier than the cinnamon from China or Asia.

My recipe

The mix I make suits me, you may need to adjust the amounts. My recipe uses liquid honey, Ceylon cinnamon and Turmeric – 2 tbsp of honey to 2 tsp of cinnamon to 1 tsp of turmeric. Mix together and store in a jar. Should keep for several weeks in your pantry, no need to for refrigeration.

I have found this combination of  honey, cinnamon and turmeric beneficial to my well being. It’s an easy and inexpensive way of of taking these spices and I write only what I really believe in.

Can you trust Food Manufacturers ?

Are  you of the opinion that food manufacturers have your best interests at heart and would never never knowingly try to poison you? The Good the Bad and the Ugly is a title that I’m sorry to say, has a real element of truth to it. In 1981 Spain produced a cooking oil that killed 600 people and 24,613 others sustained serious harm. In Australia, on average, 120 people die each year from food poisoning and 5.4 million  Australians suffer from food poisoning attributed to contaminated foods. A food processing plant in Texas has been shut down after contaminated celery was linked to the deaths of four people. Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1322666/Four-killed-celery-Texas-food-processing-plant-shut-poisoning-deaths.html#ixzz36q8RxB2a Read about film-maker Morgan Spurlock’s  documentary, “Super Size Me,” and his 30-day McDonald’s diet and subsequent health woes. Over the years the McDonalds chain has faced many claims of food poisoning. Did you know that many air fresheners use Ammonium Hydroxide or Ortho Phenylphenol  one can damage your eyes and cause serious permanent damage and the other causes cancer, bladder and liver damage. In the US, according to WebMD, every year in the United States, approximately 40,000 cases of salmonella food poisoning are reported. The above examples are just a small sample to illustrate my point, the list of these incidents is endless.

We sometimes think that raw foods much as salads and fruit are healthy for us, and yes that’s true, provided you have washed it well. Plastic bagged spinach and salads have been found to be a major cause of food poisoning. When handling food, ensure you wash your hands regularly ensure all foods are washed, in particular make sure your children do the same – they are the most vulnerable. Lastly, the bad and the ugly, the foods that pose the most danger to us are those that affect us over time. These includes highly processed and refined  foods that were never designed for our bodies. As a result, tens of thousands will have a high  risk of heart disease, strokes, diabetes and cancer.

Vegetables for starters – there are claims that people with cancer have been cured of the dreaded disease by eating Asparagus. I’m not a chemist or a Doctor, but if I had a form of cancer I would certainly be giving Asparagus a try after reading this article but like many of these claims, they are not proven. What is proven is that many forms of cancer and other diseases are caused by eating the wrong foods and lack of exercise that lead to obesity cancers heart and strokes whereby eating wholesome foods ie green vegetables like asparagus, brussels sprouts, cabbage, orange vegetables, fruit like carrots and oranges, nuts and grains , leeks, onions and garlic. Fish, like sardines, salmon, herrings and tuna are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Can you trust food manufacturers? We want to as many good products available from trusted sources.
