Honey is a great natural food item for curing sore throat easily. All you need to do is take 1 spoon of honey every few hours when suffering from a sore throat to get rid of it easily within few days or less. You can add little bit ginger juice and black pepper powder in it to increase the intensity of its effectiveness to heal a sore throat faster for better and clear throat.

Promotes Healthy Digestion

Healthy Digestion

Honey comes with lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium bacteria’s which makes it a good laxative and probiotic in nature to ease out any pain in stomach and digestion issues like GERD, gas, constipation easily. It cleans our digestive system and helps in curing any infections we have. It has been found that using honey as an alternative to normal sugar not only tastes good but also reduces the toxic effects of mycotoxins released by fungi in our guts. So it is advised to eat honey always with all normal food items like veggies cooked using gas grills, fish, tofu etc. for better digestion. You can eat it after eating your food also.

Sleep Promoter

The natural sugar found in honey raises our insulin slightly and allows tryptophan, the compound famous for making us sleepy after eating turkey at Thanksgiving, to enter our brains more easily. Taking a spoonful of honey before bed can help you get restful sleep.

Contains Antiseptic Properties
