Almasar’s spiced coffee contains cinnamon, honey and ground coffee. The spice of choice, cinnamon, enhances the flavor of coffee without increasing the calories, Almasar says. Komova agrees, noting that it “also reduces inflammation and high blood sugar and increases fat burning.” These functions greatly influence “higher metabolism and weight loss,” adds Komova, who says fat metabolism involves cells using fat stores for energy supply.

As for the honey in coffee, Komova says it contains various valuable elements, including antioxidants, amino acids, and minerals. “It’s popular for digesting stored fat, leading to weight loss,” she says. Almasar adds that honey also helps “digestion of stored body fat and is extremely beneficial for weight loss” due to its fat burning characteristics. “Honey also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which is why it’s a natural antiseptic,” Almasar explains.

Ultimately, as the two experts explain, cinnamon boosts the flavor of coffee without increasing calories since it converts sugar (glucose) into energy and burns body fat quickly. “Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties and prevents free radical damage,” Almasar concludes. “It also helps to speed up the human metabolic system and suppress appetite.”
