Honey is an incredible anti-bacterial agent. It’s beneficial for health and wellness in so many ways. It’s truly an amazing superfood with so many uses, only a few of which are discussed. It has been used in traditional medicine by many different cultures around the world for hundreds of years to treat many common ailments such as ulcers, gastric discomforts, skin wounds, burns, metabolism and digestive discomforts and more.
Honey is often recommended by physicians as a treatment for coughs, congestion and sore throats. This treatment is included for children over the age of 1 years. A homemade remedy you can use is to mix honey and lemon juice and ingest it orally. This is said to be as effective as dextromenthorphan and even more effective than diphenhydramine without the side effects.
Honey contains so many valuable nutrients, natural antioxidants, enzymes and minerals including iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and selenium. Honey includes vitamins B6, thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and niacin. Honey also helps neutralize damaging free radical activity. It’s also a strong ant-bacterial and immune boosting agent.
Children 1 years old and over can ingest honey safely. Babies 6 months old can have honey applied topically safely. This home remedy can be used for children and adults alike though.
