How to Make Ginger and Cinnamon Tea

To lose weight using ginger and cinnamon, brew a tea made from fresh ground cinnamon bark and grated fresh ginger. You can substitute powdered cinnamon, but it will not have as many active ingredients like the fresh bark, which contains more of the essential oil.

For many, this can result in a two-pound loss of weight a week. You can drink the tea as often as you like during the day to lose even more weight.

Ways to Use Cinnamon and Ginger to Your Diet

You can use the ginger and cinnamon tea brew as a base liquid that can be added to other foods that you eat during the day or you can use the spices in powdered or grated form. Ginger can also be sliced and added directly to any dish.

It’s super easy to make. All you need is five ingredients:

  • Cinnamon Sticks. Ground cinnamon just isn’t able to give the same flavor, and can sometimes become bitter. Try to find ones that are ‘Ceylon’ cinnamon, as the Cassia cinnamon can make you sick in high doses. Ceylon is lighter brown with thin layers, while Cassia cinnamon is darker brown with one thick layer curled up.
  • Fresh Ginger Root. Cutting it into slices helps it steep in the water more efficiently.
  • Peel of a Washed Lemon. Use a vegetable peeler to get nice thick strips. Make sure to only get the peel and not so much the pith –the white part under the skin– as it’s extremely bitter. 
  • Honey, sugar, or other sweeteners. Whatever your preference is to sweeten up the tea. I love using honey for its health properties whenever I feel a cough coming.
  • Cold Water.  

In a large pot, add the cinnamon sticks, ginger slices, and lemon peel to the water and bring it to a boil for 10 minutes then bring down to a simmer. Let this all steep for as long as you want, even past an hour. 

Pour into a pitcher or carafe and keep in the fridge for up to a week.

Possible health complications of high doses of cinnamon

As with all supplements, it’s important to control the dose and not take too much. The coumarin in Cassia cinnamon may cause side effects. 

1. Liver damage

Too much coumarin may cause liver damage, especially in individuals with pre-existing liver disease. 

2. Low blood sugar

One of the benefits of cinnamon is that it can help to regulate blood sugar. One of the side effects of too much cinnamon, however, is that it can drop your blood sugar too low, which can cause:

  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Shakiness
  • Anxiety

Be sure to contact your doctor if you are interested in cinnamon supplements, especially if you are diabetic and taking blood sugar medication. Your specific medication may be adversely affected by cinnamon.

3. Allergies

Some people are born with or develop an allergy to cinnamon. Some symptoms of a cinnamon allergy include skin irritation and an upset stomach every time you ingest it.

4. Interactions with other medications

Some medications can be adversely affected by taking too much cinnamon. Additionally, some conditions can be harder to manage or even get worse with too much cinnamon.

  • Cinnamon can lower blood sugar and increase the effects of medication for diabetes, lowering blood sugar too much.
  • The coumarin in some cinnamon can interact negatively with medication that also affects the liver, like acetaminophen or statins, increasing the risk of liver damage.

Be sure to talk to your doctor if you are diabetic and considering taking cinnamon supplements. If you are taking any medications that affect your liver, avoid cinnamon supplements to avoid negative interactions.

The takeaway

Cinnamon is fragrant, flavorful, and can provide health benefits. But not every jar of cinnamon is the same. If you want to use cinnamon as a supplement for its health benefits, be very careful when you read the labels and talk to your doctor. 

High doses of the flavoring agent coumarin may lead to liver damage in some people. Ceylon cinnamon does not typically contain coumarin, whereas Cassia cinnamon contains much more of it. 

It’s always best to talk to your doctor before taking any supplements, especially if you’re taking other medications. To get the health benefits of cinnamon without having to worry about the hazards of coumarin, you can sprinkle a small amount of cinnamon on your food or occasionally drink cinnamon tea.
