Just wanted to say that I asked my Dr. about the honey and cinnamon plan and he said for me to use only Sugar Free honey which I found and bought at my local Public's Grocery store. It tastes just like regular honey. Thank you.

Ruth: Sugar-free honey is not honey at all. The honey cinnamon mixture is not about its taste but its goodness. Sugar-free honey contains maltitol, an artificially produced sugar alcohol. Beware of the adverse health effects of artificial sugars. They are probably the worst form of sweeteners. Some articles that are might be of interest to you:

My mother asked me to try honey and cinnamon mixture. I have year round allergies and blow my nose every 5 minutes. In a couple of days notice my body having the urge to cough up phlegm. In the next couple of days, I noticed I could breath through my nose, that has never been possible. Then another week, I noticed I wasn't blowing my nose so much. I went from blowing my nose every 5 minutes to once a day. Then many noticed my allergies getting better. I drank this in a tea every day for a month and it had my allergies 95% cleared. I was shocked, but of course I stopped and my allergies are still controlled. I will continue this in a day morning and night.

Is honey cinnamon drink safe for all or specific to body condition?
Niharika Rao, India
24 Oct 2014
Ruth: Side effects of honey and cinnamon are not known, but so far a few have reported experiencing insomnia when they take it in evening. Also, for regular/daily consumptions, cassia cinnamon is not recommended as it contains a high level of coumarin content that can be harmful for the liver and kidney.

I am in medication for thyroid and consuming tab of 25mcg every morning in an empty stomach. My query is can I consume honey with cinnamon mixture after taking tab? Will it be helpful to reduce weight and are there any side effects? Thank you
4 Oct 2014
Ruth: Sorry Ashwini, we are unable to provide medical advice on complications or side effects of consuming cinnamon and honey as a result of using other medications. If you have a concern about taking the mixture together with your current medications, please consult your medical doctor.
I read the testimonies on the benefits of honey and cinnamon, many of them mentioned weight loss. I would like to try this concoction or the "ACV w/ honey" to ease my digestive issues, but I don't want to lose weight, I am trying to gain weight, so I am not sure if I take this concoction will I lose more weight? Would appreciate your input. Thank you.
29 Sep 2014
Ruth: For the cinnamon and honey mixture, weight loss benefits come about for many people who have weight management issues due to health problems such as poor metabolism, diabetes, high blood sugar and high blood cholesterol. If you do not have these problems, I don't expect that you will be seeing the same effects. If you still have doubts about taking cinnamon, maybe, you should just keep to the cider vinegar and honey drink, which is known to be rather effective for treating digestion problems, even without the additional cinnamon.
I'm just starting this regimen and want to be sure I'm doing it correctly for maximum benefit. Am I supposed to drink all the cinnamon that is left over at the bottom of cup? Even when frequently swirling or stirring while drinking it still leaves a lot leftover for the last few sips. might I also ask whether the drink should be cooler or cold when I stir in the honey? I let it sit for 30 minutes and then stir it in, but it is still quite warm at that point. Thank you!

Ruth: I assume you are following the steps in this: Cinnamon and Honey Recipe. If you don't like the residue, you can actually use a drainer to filter all that is on top and bottom of the drink. No hard and fast rule, it's just a recommendation. As mentioned in the page, for some people who don't mind taking the powder, they will not bother to filter off the residue. Warm or cold is fine, the only issue is with adding honey to very hot liquids and killing all the live enzymes.
I have been using cinnamon & honey for weight loss. It hasn't been a fast process but it does work. I have lost 2 pants sizes in the last 6 months.

I see someone is adding tumeric to their cinnamon and honey. Tumeric has to be cooked off to release the elements for good health. Also when cooking off garlic and also onions, they should be cut or crushed 10 minutes before cooking for maximum benefit.

Can Ceylon sticks be used instead of powder, or do you need the 'bits' that you end up drinking?
LeeAnn, United States
12 August 2014
Ruth: Whole Ceylon sticks are mostly used in coffee and other beverages for the additional aroma and flavor. But if you are making a honey cinnamon drink, the ground or powder form would be ideal as cinnamon can effectively steep in the hot water and most of its essence can go into the water. Most people would filter away residue because the drink is just a lot easier to go down without the spicy bits in the mouth. Refer to: Cinnamon and Honey Recipe.

Could you please tell the exact amounts of honey and cinnamon. I need to make a drink to boost my immune system to fight off disease. Thank you.
4 July 2014
Ruth: Daily one to two pinches (or one quarter teaspoon) of cinnamon and a tablespoon of honey (mixed or separate) with any food (eg toast, cereal) or beverage (eg tea or coffee) can help boost immune system.
I've been putting cinnamon on my porridge but after four days I feel like my bust is swelling - I'm thinking cinnammon is high in estrogen and being post menopause I think I won't be able to take it. Has anyone found this. I've also had very sore eyes since I've been using it - again anyone else had this?
Janet, United Kingdom

Ruth: Cinnamon rarely causes side-effects. In fact we haven't come across the mentioned symptoms which sound much like allergic reactions.
I don't make a cinnamon and manuka honey drink. Instead I just take a tea spoon of the honey and sprinkle some cinnamon on it, will it still work?
Sam Fringo, Ireland
8 June 2014
Ruth: There is no hard and fast rule. You can take honey and cinnamon direct or you can mix the two and make a drink. Also, any floral varietal or blend of varietals of honey is fine, it doesn't have to be Manuka honey. If you are using cinnamon and honey for regulating blood sugar, lowering cholesterol or weight management, to facilitate and maximize absorption of the mixture, you may want to follow these preparation steps: Cinnamon and Honey Recipe.
It is a wealth of important information & knowledge.

I've just taken my first concoction of honey and cinnamon, however, I just learned that I am taking the wrong type of cinnamon. I need the Ceylon kind. I will continue with what I have until I receive the other. I am looking forward to hopefully, living a longer life with this concoction, as well as getting cholesterol down.

I am concerned to read recent reports that cinnamon, 1 tsp a day is toxic, and could cause damage to the liver!
8 May 2013
Ruth: Indeed taking the common Cassia cinnamon on a regular basis can be a health concern. Consider switching to Ceylon cinnamon which doesn't contain the same amount of coumarin in Cassia cinnamon.
Thank you for this wonderful site, just LOVE it.

My son's teacher just got diagnosed with stomach cancer about a month ago. Everyone was crying and was devastated. I came across an article about honey and cinnamon cure for cancer. I told her try this cure 1 tbsp. of honey with 1 tsp of cinnamon mix well and enjoy 3 times a day for a whole month. She was already tired of taking it but something inside told her keep taking it. This Friday she went for a follow-up and they told her there is no CANCER!!!!!!AMEN!!!!When she told us we were surprised that this remedy really worked so I decided to share it to anyone out there... GOOD LUCK!!!!

I highly recommend straining the cinnamon/water mixture through cheese cloth to rid it of the thick paste of cinnamon. I tried it first without straining it and absolutely could not stomach it! It is FAR more palatable strained.

Patrick, United States

Ruth: While the honey and cinnamon mixture may be helpful in treating diabetes and arthritis, it is not a cure-all.
Must be CEYLON cinnamon. Mix with hot not boiling water, add Manuka Honey. Three times a day.

I started using raw honey and cinnamon about a year ago. Also totally changed my diet. Low salt intake, etc. I've been off Metfoman for my diabetes now for 6 months. My doctor told me yesterday I can stop checking my blood sugar. No more sticking my finger twice a day. I also stopped taking prilosec everyday for acid indigestion. Have been off that after about a month after starting the honey and cinnamon.

I feel GREAT since taking the cinnamon/honey (4 weeks now). I dont know how much weight that Ive lost but I feel less bloated, lighter, sleep much better, digest food better and overall, have more energy. I will say tho, that the tea mixture was slimy/thick and I almost threw it up.. EWWW. THEN, I tried the paste mixture.. my gag reflex was up each time I took it... NOW... i mix the paste ( 1 tea.cinn + 1 tablesp honey ) with a couple pieces of ICE + splash water in the BLENDER and then just drink it down.... much much better....

I've been taking "CEYLON" Cinnamon and "RAW" Manuka Honey daily for 2 1/2 weeks and I feel amazing! Less bloated, more energy more focused and I lost 4 lbs. I just have been drinking a tablespoon of Raw honey with a half teaspoon of the ceylon cinnamon and I also add a little cinnamon in my coffee, keeps me going all day and I feel great. Def. worth the try all!
NOTE: When you boil your water add the cinnamon and let sit til it cools down then add your raw honey or you will kill all the benefits it give you. Cheers!

I have been taking the cinnamon/honey for 2 weeks and feel great !!! I couldn't stomach the tea mixture so I just mix it together in a little dish and take it that way... still is kinda yucky/thick. I take only the honey before bed and have slept better than ever!! What a cheap and easy thing to do... hopefully I can lose the lbs. I've been trying to lose since I had my kids.
