Different ways to prepare Apple Cinnamon tea

And I’m back to sharing my next Healthy Detox drink, Apple Cinnamon Tea! I’ve been sharing some of my detox drinks and you can find the posts here:

Cinnamon, an aromatic condiment is obtained from the bark of several trees in the genus Cinnamon. Originating in the Indian and Srilankan region, we’re all aware of its little woody, citrusy, and spicy flavor. It is this flavor that makes this tea very refreshing for me.

The name says it all! Apple Cinnamon Tea is made in different ways, but the major ingredients are fresh or dried apples and cinnamon (sticks/powder). Here, I need to mention that I use Ceylon cinnamon sticks, as it is the healthiest one. Ceylon Cinnamon contains a much lesser percentage of coumarin. Higher levels of this compound, Coumarin, in few pieces of research have been associated with increased risk of bleeding and reduction in liver functioning. Hence, I’ve always opted for Ceylon Cinnamon.

To get these sticks, you can check here.

Benefits of Apple Cinnamon Tea:

Apple and cinnamon, both are well known for their health effects, and when combined, its health benefits increase manifolds.

  1. Antioxidants and antibacterial: Apple Cinnamon Tea is loaded with antioxidants and acts as a natural immunity booster. Compounds found in this tea have been proven effective to fight bacterias.
  2. Cough and Cold: One of the reasons, why I consume this tea during seasonal changes and as the winter approaches! It certainly helps relieve the sore throat and gives comfort during winters
  3. Reduces menstrual cramps: Personally, this tea helps me relieve the painful cramps during my periods. It also elevates my mood and lessens up the feeling of nausea.
  4. Rich in dietary fiber: With apple, that is rich in dietary fiber, this drink works well to boost up the digestive system improves bowel movement, hence it is good if you have constipation.
  5. Weight Loss: Cinnamon and Apple cinnamon tea has often been touted to help promote weight loss. Though I consume it, but not daily, and as always, I would say that no drink is a miracle drink when it comes to weight loss. There is a lot more research required to prove its efficacy in fat loss. All I would suggest is work on a healthy lifestyle, workout regularly and consume Apple cinnamon tea/detox drinks I’ve shared in this series!

This tea has many other benefits too wrt a few chronic diseases, like reducing Blood sugar and more! But for any underlying medical conditions, it is always recommended to consult your doctor for any addition to your diet.
