“Take 1kg of honey, 1 kg lemons and 200gr of pollen. The lemon juice is poured onto the pollen so that it can dissolve, then the juice and pollen are mixed with the honey. The mixture is left to stand for 24 hours. Then 250-300gr of sesame seeds are added to the mixture and stirred. Optionally you can also add two packets of cinnamon.
Mix 1 tablespoon of the mixture in a glass of lukewarm water in the morning and evening, as well as one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. Drink the mixture 30 to 60 minutes before eating.
