Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone heard of mixing raw honey and ground cinammon with water and drinking it for about four weeks. I was also told that it helps lowered your blood sugar and lose weight.

My Dad kept 70 colonies of bees. So I have extracted a lot of honey from the honeycombs and have eaten a lot of raw honey as a teen (that was the only sweetener on the table for breakfast).

I've heard A LOT of thinga about the properties of raw honey, but that I have never heard what you said.

I tend to agree with KD that since it is a simple sugar it will raise your BG#s a lot in a hurry! So whoever told you this was either not thinking or untruthful.

It's been banded around a lot, but it's not a good idea. Try the cinnamon if you want but honey is just sugar so will raise blood sugar, not lower it. It is also not calorie free so if you are eating it in addition to normal food it will make you gain weight or hinder you losing it, maybe not much but but some.
