Cinnamon and Raw Honey for weight loss.

Cinnamon and Raw Honey for weight loss.

Raw Honey and Cinnamon for weight loss? Yes please!

Finally, we decided to bring together cinnamon and raw honey in the same jar and the combination is heavenly. We are so fortunate to have amazing desert honeys like Mesquite and Desert Blend that help make this healing honey a taste from heaven.

About 3 years ago a customer stopped by the honey stand and shared that her and her husband had excellent results loosing weight with the combination of warm water, cinnamon and raw honey taken in the morning before breakfast and before bedtime. It was a bit surprising to me because I never heard of cinnamon and honey being used this way for that purpose before. Then it seemed that the more I looked up information about health benefits of cinnamon and raw honey, weight loss was coming up frequently.

If you consider the fact that raw honey helps to stabilize insulin levels and cinnamon with it's detoxing capabilities, no wonder it's being used as a weight loss drink.

Green tea and cinnamon honey recipe:

Its very simple, I prefer the loose leaf green tea as opposed to the tea bags. If you like using tea bags for the practicality of it, then that is perfectly fine as well.

Steep the tea bag or the loose leaf wire basket for 1 to 2 minutes. I find that I can get 2 teas out of this short steeping process and I get a lighter not so bitter tasting tea, but you can go the 3 to 5 minute recommended steeping time for a stronger green tea your are the master of your world so go ahead. ___________________________________________________________________________

Cinnamon helps by improving digestion and absorption as well as it promotes elimination. It releases toxins from the body and helps circulation by strengthening the heart and warming the kidneys. Because of its blood thinning properties, cinnamon helps prevent heart attacks.

Start your new year by adding a simple change like this one to your daily regimen and your heart and health will improve greatly!

Raw Honey Crystallization. Why???

Raw Honey Crystallization. Why???

One of the most common questions and calls that we get from customers is "why did my honey crystallize? is this normal? has my honey gone bad?

The answer is: no, your honey has not gone bad... yes, it is normal for raw honey to crystallize....the reasons why your honey crystallized are the following....

Raw honey has a high concentrated sugar solution. Consisting of more than 70% sugars and less than 20% water. The two major sugars in raw honey are fructose and glucose. The amount of fructose and glucose varies on the different varieties of raw honey. In general, the fructose ranges from 30% to 40% and glucose from 25% to 40%. The ratio between fructose and glucose in a floral nectar source will determine how quickly the honey will crystallize.

Raw honeys with a low fructose to glucose ratio will crystalize in weeks or even days after extraction, some of these varietals include: dandelion, aster, clover, mesquite, alfalfa, desert wildflower to mention a few. Raw honeys with high fructose to glucose ration are: tupelo, acacia, orange blossom, eucalyptus.

During the natural crystallization process glucose sugars will separate from water to form into white crystals; on the other hand, fructose stays in its liquid form. That is why crystalized honey will thicken and become lighter in color compared to its liquid state.

Some honeys will crystalize uniformly while others will start to form crystals at the bottom of the jar and half way up the top the honey will remain liquid. This is no indication that the honey has gone bad, it is just the laws of nature at work in the many raw honey varietals.

To bring your crystallized raw honey back to liquid form, all you have to do is put it in a medium pot with water and set the jar in the center of the hot water bath. Open the lid of the jar, turn the heat to medium on your stove and wait until all of the crystals have dissolved. If you want your honey to remain liquid for a longer period of time, you will have to heat it longer. It is all a matter of personal preference.

When using raw honey for healing purposes: allergy relief, cough, sore throat. We recommend that you do not heat the honey above 110 degrees fahrenheit.

Since it is a superfood containing natural antioxidants, enzymes and minerals: iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and selenium. Vitamins like: Vitamin B6, thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and niacin. Also, the nutraceuticals in raw honey help neutralize damaging free radical activity.
There are 64 calories in 1 Tablespoon of raw honey. Raw honey supplies the liver with a ready supply of energy in the form of liver glycogen. It is great for pre and post exercise energy source. It acts as a preventative against any number of debilitating diseases as it boosts the immune system.
Raw honey promotes restorative sleep as it slowly releases the glycogen needed during sleep when essential bodily functions take place. Ingesting raw honey before bed time in warm milk or tea, helps the body release melatonin into the brain which is necessary for deep sleep.

Melatonin boosts the immune system and helps rebuild tissue during periods of rest. Poor sleep, by comparison, has been shown to be a risk factor for hypertension, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and arthritis. Raw honey is a proven sleep aid, it naturally lowers the risk of all these health conditions.
Many of our customers swear by it for allergy relief, many more have shared with us how they have discontinued the use of allergy medications and allergy shots due to the effectiveness of consuming raw honey.
