Fun Health Facts

Apples are among the most popular fruits in the world and for good reason. Not only are they flavorful, but they are also packed with beneficial nutrients like fiber and vitamin C. They are believed to aid in weight loss, heart health and lower the risk of diabetes. 

Cinnamon contains numerous medicinal and soothing properties, thanks to its anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties. It is believed to reduce blood pressure, improve digestion and lower blood sugar.

Lemons are a great source of vitamin C. In fact, one lemon provides 51% of the recommended daily intake!

Vitamin C is believed to help lower the risk of heart disease, stroke and aid in iron absorption.

 Tips & Tricks

  • Freshly grated ginger and a cinnamon stick taste best, but if those ingredients aren't available, use dried spices.

  • Grate the ginger as is. There is no need to peel off the skin first!

  • Adding the honey at the end retains the most nutrients and antibacterial properties.
