Cinnamon honey can solve 5 health problems

Honey and cinnamon have been used for centuries for their healing properties. Both ingredients have beneficial effects on the body, but when used together can cure a number of ailments.

Honey is a natural sweetener, produced by bees from plant nectar, rich in carbohydrates, fructose, but also glucose. Like cinnamon, honey has antioxidant and antibacterial properties. Being also a powerful anti-inflammatory, honey reduces inflammation in the tissues. The more natural honey is, the stronger its effects. Commercial honey, whose texture is soft, watery, should be avoided because it is far from natural.

Honey and cinnamon for colds: The mixture of honey and cinnamon not only saves you from the cold, but also prevents the appearance of the disease. The active substances in cinnamon kill cold viruses, and honey prevents the formation of free radicals, strengthening the immune system.

To prepare a mixture of honey and cinnamon effectively against colds you need: 1 cup hot water, 1 tablespoon natural honey, 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix the ingredients listed above and consume the liquid obtained once, maybe even twice a day. This mixture prevents, but also fights colds.

Honey and cinnamon for digestive problems: Digestive problems such as constipation, gas in the stomach, gatroenteritis, gastritis or even ulcer, can be cured or alleviated by this miraculous mixture. Honey, due to glucose and fructose, is quickly transformed into energy, being a nutritious food, which does not require the digestive system. At the same time, honey contains oligosaccharides, which have prebiotic effects, which are known to be essential for the digestive system. The antimicrobial properties of cinnamon help cure gastroenteritis, and honey helps eliminate the bacterium Helicobacter Pylori, which is known to cause ulcers in the long run.

Honey and cinnamon for acne Both honey and cinnamon have antibacterial properties and prevent the colonization of bacteria on the skin. Therefore, cinnamon oil mixed with honey, applied to the skin or other areas with acne, treats this problem. Use a mixture of 3 tablespoons of honey and a teaspoon of cinnamon or cinnamon oil in the evening, before bed. Wash your skin in the morning and pimples will become an unpleasant memory.

Honey and cinnamon to lower cholesterol: Both honey and cinnamon have the ability to lower blood cholesterol levels. A study of diabetics showed that 6 grams of cinnamon consumed daily reduce cholesterol and triglycerides. To lower cholesterol levels with these two ingredients, mix ¾ teaspoon of cinnamon with 1 tablespoon of honey and consume this mixture daily on an empty stomach.

To start, prepare the dough: put all the ingredients in a bowl (the butter must be melted and the milk warm), add a pinch of salt and knead until you get a slightly sticky dough that comes off the walls of the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let it grow in a warm place, away from drafts, for an hour.

If you use fresh yeast, rub it with a teaspoon of sugar until it liquefies and add warm milk, then put it over the rest of the ingredients.

After an hour, the dough has risen nicely, it needs to double in volume.

Put a little flour on a board and turn the dough upside down, spread it in a square sheet with a size of about 36 & # 21546 cm (as big as the board in my case) or with a thickness of 0.5 cm.

Grease it with plenty of butter then sprinkle with sugar and then cinnamon. I put less because I wanted to, but you put more, please.

Roll tightly and then with a knife passed through the flour cut rolls two fingers thick.

In a tray of size 25 & # 21530 cm put baking paper then place the rolls as in the picture with the distance between them. The tray of this size is perfect for the 13 pieces.

Let it rise hot for another 30 minutes then bake the rolls in the preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes.

2-3 minutes before the icing is ready, put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix lightly. It should be flowing like a pancake batter, maybe you can tell from the pictures. If it is too thin it is not okay, so it is best to add the milk gradually until you get the desired consistency.

Remove the rolls from the oven and pour the icing over them hot. With the help of a spoon, place each roll in the center, then towards the edges.

Serve the cinnamon rolls warm! They are very very good!

And there is no point in telling you how it smells in the whole house :)
