Cinnamon, cloves, and unsweetened cocoa powder have high amounts of antioxidants. A study showed that increasing antioxidants to decrease oxidative stress helped anti-cancer T-cells work better and last longer to destroy cancer cells.

  • 2 1/2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp cane sugar (more or less to taste)


  1. Mix ingredients together in a small saucepan
  2. Simmer for 1-2 minutes until hot
  3. Serve warm
