The combination of honey and cinnamon has been used for centuries in the ancient traditional Chinese and Ayurveda medicine systems. These two ingredients with unique healing abilities have a long history as a ‘home remedy’.
Cinnamon is one of the oldest spices known to mankind and honey’s popularity does not wane throughout the history. The essential cinnamon oil and the enzyme that produces hydrogen peroxide, which is found in honey, qualify as the two “anti-microbial” foods that have the possibility of stopping the growth of bacteria and fungi.
They are not used just for flavoring drinks and drugs, also as a means for embalming and as an alternative to traditional preservatives due to their effective antimicrobial properties.
