Here Is What Happens If You Eat Honey And Cinnamon Every Day!
By now you probably know some of the health benefits of honey, and of cinnamon, but we bet you don't know just what a potent cancer fighter the two of them are combined? Read on to find out more!
According to the book: Honey Revolution by Dr Ron Fessenden, the floral flavonoids in honey contains bio-flavonoids - antioxidants that “decrease capillary permeability and fragility. They scavenge oxidants and inhibit the destruction of collagen in the body.”
A recent study published in the journal Molecules, “Effects of Honey and Its Mechanisms of Action on the Development and Progression of Cancer” adds:
Honey is highly cytotoxic against tumor or cancer cells while it is non-cytotoxic to normal cells. The data indicate that honey can inhibit carcinogenesis by modulating the molecular processes of initiation, promotion, and progression stages. Thus, it may serve as a potential and promising anticancer agent which warrants further experimental and clinical studies.
Honey works to fight cancer in several steps:
- Cell Cycle Arrest: Cancer cell replication is stopped.
- Activation of the Mitochondrial Pathway: Flavonoids can activate mitochondrial pathways and remove proteins like cytochrome C which are considered potential cytotoxic (cell killing) agents.
- Induction of Mitochondrial Outer Membrane Permeabilization (MOMP): Honey causes the MOMP or a “leakage of intermembrane space proteins into the cytosol” which leads to the death of carcinogenic cells.
- Induction of Programmed Cell Death (Apoptosis): Activates “cell death programming” to protects against cancer.
- Modulation of Oxidative Stress: Honey has the ability to act as an antioxidant thereby minimizing oxidative stress, which has been linked to cancer.
- Amelioration of Inflammation: Honey acts as an anti-Inflammatory. Chronic inflammation has been linked to cancer.
- Modulation of Insulin Signaling: Cancer has been liked to insulin resistance. Honey can reduce insulin resistance thus reducing cancer risk.
- Inhibition of Angiogenesis: Honey can stop tumors from creating their own blood supply by inhibiting angiogenesis (the production of a new blood supply vessels.
Likewise, studies show cinnamon also helps fight cancer. A 2005 study published by researchers at the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in Maryland showed cinnamon can kill cancer cells.
The study showed the following:
- Cinnamon extract effectively reduced the proliferation rate of all three types of cancer cells over a 24-hour time span. (The time necessary for one doubling of the cell population.)
- The higher the dose of cinnamon extract the greater the reduction in cell proliferation.
- The highest cinnamon concentration resulted in about a 50% reduction in cell proliferation compared to the control group.
Other studies studying the effect of treating cancer cells with cinnamon found similar results.
Below please note a few recommendations for using honey with other spices as a natural health remedies; mix one teaspoon of honey with one teaspoon of the spice, up to six times a day. Each one of these should start at a 1:1 ratio. Adjust for taste as you see fit.
- Honey and turmeric or honey and curcumin (every other day take it six times a day, alternate with ginger) (also anti-tumor),
- Honey and ginger (every other day take it six times a day, alternate with turmeric) (also anti-tumor),
- Honey and cinnamon (every day – how often is up to the patient).
Note: Use only genuine raw, unfiltered honey and organic, non-irradiated cinnamon.
