Now, you may not think of honey and weight loss together, but honey is a very useful and healthy food to help you lose weight. Honey is a simple sugar, which means that it isn't refined or processed, and it also contains vitamins, minerals and nutrients that are very good for you. Now isn't honey even sweeter than you thought? Honey helps boost and speed up your metabolism which then helps your body burn fat. The glycemic index (GI) of honey shows that you won't get a sugar rush from it and it is gradually absorbed into the body.
Cinnamon helps regulate our blood sugar levels and helps increase insulin levels in the body.
Cinnamon helps prevent the increase of storage of fat by the body. It also helps to prevent the transformation of the sugar into fat! Gotta love that!
Cinnamon creates a Chemical Reaction: When cinnamon is consumed, the body actually reacts chemically to digest the cinnamon. This reaction actually speeds up the metabolism in order to offset the extra heat that is occurring as a result of the cinnamon. When the metabolism speeds up, you are burning more calories and you will lose weight more quickly. Cinnamon also improves insulin function, which equates to losing weight.
Local honey and cinnamon help clean parasites, fungus and bacteria in your digestive track. The honey also helps to stabilize blood sugar levels, which, like cinnamon, helps with bad food cravings, and will help to keep you feeling fuller and more satisfied.
