The golden sweetener is full of antioxidants and flavonoids which gift you high energy and healing power.

In a study, it has been found that more than 65% reduction in your productivity is due to bad eating habits. Be it unhealthy food or timing issues in your diet; it is slowly affecting you from inside.
In the last few decades, our traditional food has got replaced by junk and fast food and the percentage of junk food consumption has increased drastically. People of all age group have adopted this bad habit. If we continue doing this, our upcoming generation is predicted to be born with disabilities.
Let me brief some of the major benefits of honey:
Heal your heart diseases and cancer with honey
The antioxidants and flavonoids in the-oldest-golden-sweetener help fight against cancer and heart diseases. Raw honey is best for medicinal use.
The darker the honey, the more are the antioxidants in it.
Regulates blood sugar:
Even though honey is sweet, but it is not the same as normal white sugar or any artificial sweet syrup. The combination of fructose and glucose present in honey helps the body to regulate the sugar level.
Beautiful glowing skin
Apply it on your face in winters or give yourself a honey facial for younger glowing skin. The anti-bacterial qualities of honey are useful for your skin, Your grandmother (just like mine) might have told you this use of honey. Get a honey facial or put on a honey pack with other ingredients like Vitamin e to moisturize and nourish your skin.
A cure to ulcers and other gastrointestinal issues:
Honey is a natural medicine to ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders.
Honey has a noticeable long life, all thanks to the bees who add enzymes to honey that makes hydrogen peroxide and make the honey anti-bacterial. It is the only thing that never gets spoiled. I have never heard in my home that honey is spoiled.
Increases athletic performance:
Ancient athletes used to take honey with dried figs to perform well in the playground. Modern studies have taken it into consideration and it is now verified to be helpful in maintaining the glycogen level and improve the recovery time.
Use it for Cough medicine:
A cough is a real irritating disease that doesn’t even allow you a proper sleep. In winters, if my adorable toddler feels discomfort due to the cold and cough, I just take some honey on your finger and allow the little one to lick it.
I use it for adults also, a simple home remedy can help relief from cough. Take some fresh ginger juice, a spoonful of honey and black pepper; mix well and eat slowly. If required take lukewarm water only.
Healing wounds and burns:
Honey is the best home remedy as it has some natural properties like antiseptic, antibacterial and antimicrobial. Applying a layer of honey after cleaning the wound is a very fast way to heal wound and cut, this method is being used since the medical facilities were not much developed because it keeps the affected area infection free and reduces odor and pus. Moreover, it reduces the pain within minutes which is a big relief for the patient. Raw honey is the best.
