This recipe is full of amazing spices, not only in taste, but for your health as well. This easy to prepare recipe will help to speed your metabolism and positively affect your overall health, all from the superstar spices – cinnamon and clove.
Cinnamon is considered anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial and is also considered to help regulate blood sugar levels. Because it helps to slow the rate at which the stomach empties after meals, this aids in reducing blood sugar surges after meals.
It’s also been shown to stimulate insulin receptors and inhibit the enzyme that inactivates them, which in turn increases the cells ability to use glucose efficiently.
Not to mention that cinnamon is a very powerful antioxidant!
When it comes to health benefits, clove is not far behind. Cloves are a good source of vitamins, minerals and fiber. They’ve also been shown to be beneficial in fighting fungus, bacteria and yeast (that includes candida). They also contain health-promoting antioxidants!
In addition, cloves may aid in stomach bloating and gas, due to their ability to reduce pressure and help to carry out toxins through elimination. Clove oil is also said to be a great natural healer for oral health, relieving toothaches and sore gums in particular.

2 sticks of cinnamon
3 grams of cloves
5 liters of water
Mix all three ingredients in a bowl and place them in the refrigerator to sit for 5 days for drinking.
Consume 100 ml (roughly 3 ½ ounces) of this tonic upon waking, on an empty stomach. You may want to strain the liquid before drinking it to avoid a potentially gritty texture.
When you are left with only 400 ml (13 ½ ounces) of this tonic, prepare a new dose. After you have consumed 3 batches, take a 2 week break.
Repeat as needed.
