Ingredients
  1. 1 cup Apple Cider
  2. 1 Cinnamon stick
  3. 1 tsp Raw Honey (optional)
Directions
  1. Add Cinnamon stick to one cup of Apple Cider and heat to desired temperature.

Notes
  1. Apple cider is a good source of vitamin C and iron, and also contains the soluble fiber pectin, which may aid in reducing cholesterol. Vitamin C is essential for tissue repair and regeneration, and supports the healthy functioning of the immune system and adrenal glands, both of which can be impaired by stress. Cinnamon promotes good digestion and can moderate blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.
