Eggs provide protein and help to prevent eye disease, strokes, and heart attacks.
Cinnamon has been proven effective for menstrual cramps, infertility and against h. pylori bacteria. It can also reduce pain associated with arthritis and help to regulate LDL cholesterol.
Honey is antibacterial, antifungal and can help prevent heart disease and reduce ulcers.
