Honey has been used as a medicine for thousands of years as a natural remedy. It has a multitude of healing powers with everything from relieving a sore throat, allergies, healing wounds, etc. Honey is an amazing antibacterial substance which is comprised of sugars like glucose and fructose and minerals (like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, iron and phosphate), vitamins (such as B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and C), trace elements (like copper, iodine, and zinc) as well as amino acids and enzymes.
Research shows that a spoonful of honey is more effective than cough syrup in treating coughs and is safe for children over 12 months old.
Honey consumption raises antioxidant levels. Honey soothes on contact and has antioxidant, germicidal and antimicrobial effects, which helps explain its contributions to wound healing. Antioxidants provide defense against free radicals, which cause cell damage. Honey contains as many antioxidants as spinach, apples, oranges or strawberries.
Eating honey along with supplemental calcium appeared to enhance calcium absorption in rats.
If you have allergies and eat honey that is local to your area, it may prevent seasonal allergies. Bees use the pollen from local plants and eventually it ends up in your honey.
Latest research shows honey to be effective in lowering cholesterol, C-Reactive Protein (an inflmmation marker) and blood pressure.
Perhaps what many people don’t think enough of or have overlooked is - honey possesses carcinogen-preventing and anti-tumour properties; honey is curative; honey is anti-cancer. According to the book Honey Revolution by Dr Ron Fessenden, scientists have found floral flavonoids in honey. These tiny traces of bioflavonoids, generally known as antioxidants, have powerful influences when entered into the body’s cells. When ingested, they immediately increase the antioxidant levels within cells, “decrease capillary permeability and fragility. They scavenge oxidants and inhibit the destruction of collagen in the body”.
