I've read that 1tblsp honey and 1tblsp cinnamon w/cup of hot water has many health benefits. Is this true?
It depends: I doubt you'll find scientific evidence as to the health benefits. That doesn't mean it is hype. A lack of evidence doesn't exclude the possibility of significant benefit. I find it best to have supplements tailored to the individual. In the U.S. naturopaths are often the best bet. If you have access to a good herbalist & I have a bias toward Chinese Medicine. (Cinnamon commonly used) ...Read more

I m gonna start taking warm water with honey in the morning before eating anything...... Does it have any side effects? And wt r d benefits for skin?
Green tea's effects do not stand up to scientific review. Like so many alternative treatments or products, tradition, theory, hope and anecdotal evidence do not hold up when a formal review of evidence is done. See the excellent answers on weight loss on this site and drink tea because you like it, not for its supposed magical properties.

Greetings! What are the benefits of drinking greentea flavoured with honey and lemon? & also how many times can I use a single green tea bag?
Green tea is: A metabolism booster, thus it has a reputation for helping w/weight loss. The benefit is minimal in my estimation, but worth adding to a health food plan an exercise. Honey is soothing to the throat and an anti-microbial but it is in the sugar family so it's not a free pass because it is "natural." It's a far better choice than refined sugar. I don't know about Strepsil. Use bag 1 or 2 times. ...Read more
Is honey the best natural infection fighter and can a doctor confirm its benefits? It has been fda approved.
Effective, yes....: To say honey is the "best natural infection fighter" is overstating its properties. Apart from a high sugar content that sucks out the water from microbes, compounds such as flavinoids and phenolic acids also inhibit the growth of microbes in honey. Be careful though- spore-forming bacteria such as clostridium botulinum can germinate in unpasturized honey, and can be a danger when given to infants. ...Read more
