Amongst the many health benefits of honey, what is most impressive to me is that honey can be a powerful immune system booster. It's antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties can help improve digestive system and help you stay healthy and fight disease.
Reduces cough and throat irritation:
Honey helps with coughs, particularly buckwheat honey. In a study of 110 children, a single dose of buckwheat honey was just as effective as a single dose of dextromethorphan in relieving nocturnal cough and allowing proper sleep.
Prevent cancer and heart disease.
It contains flavonoids, antioxidants which help reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease. It also contains nutraceuticals, which are very effective for the removal of free radicals from the body. As a result, our body immunity is improved against many conditions, even potentially fatal ones like cancer or heart disease.
Natural Beauty Care
Honey is a great natural moisturizer and anti-aging ingredient for our skin and face. Frequent use of honey on our skin and face will help us get supple, soft, glowing, and younger skin.
Enhances digestive system
Recent research shows that honey treatment may help disorders such as ulcers and bacterial gastroenteritis. Honey is a popular home remedy (though the science behind this isn’t conclusive) for all kinds of digestive problems, including constipation and ulcers. For a homemade digestion aid, try tea with honey and lemon.
Home Remedy for Ailments
Honey is a great remedy for cuts and burns, sore throat, hangovers, sleepiness and more. External application of honey has been shown to be as effective as conventional treatment with silver sulfadiazene. It is speculated that the drying effect of the simple sugars and honey’s anti-bacterial nature combine to create this effect.
