How quickly has this year whizzed past?! I’m missing the festive Christmas feel already. The trees may be coming down soon, but I want to keep the festive vibes alive just a little longer. One of the elements I love about Christmas is the scent of cinnamon.
No, I am not binging on leftover mince pies, got the NY resolutions coming up! Instead, I’ve incorporated cinnamon into my daily breakfast shake thanks to the Dabur Real Activ Honey with Cinnamon.
The Dabur brand of health and food products is one of the oldest and most respected in India, and you can rest assured genuine, high-quality honey is being used here.
Upon opening a jar of Dabur Real Activ Honey with Cinnamon, I can get a very generous whiff of cinnamon. So festive, so temptingly delicious!
Apart from smelling absolutely amazing, cinnamon is prized for its health-inducing benefits. Having cinnamon on a daily basis can:
- Reduce high blood pressure
- Treat Type 2 Diabetes
- Reduce bad cholesterol in the blood stream
- Can help increase metabolism and aid in weight loss
- Has anti-fungal and anti-infammatory properties
“Cinnamon has been proven to fight fungal, bacterial, and viral elements in foods, thus preventing spoilage. It’s no surprise that in the Middle Ages, when food spoilage was far more frequent due to lack of refrigeration, many recipes, both sweet and savory, were flavored with the spice.” – OrganicAuthority.com
Add honey to the mix, and you have a health-enhancing superfood! For more on the benefits of honey, click here for my previous post.
With the Dabur Real Activ Honey with Cinnamon, getting your daily dose of cinnamon is super easy and delicious! I’ve been having spoonfuls over my morning cereal, on toast, and even by itself.
This morning, I was in a rush, and decided to blend it in with my strawberry smoothie… a quick, nutritious breakfast on the run.
