Reasons why you should consume raw honey regularly

Raw honey has been used as a natural remedy for hundreds of years, and Healthline says it has many health and medical benefits. In some hospitals, it has been used to treat wounds. Raw honey is good for your health in many ways.

1. It has a lot of antioxidants in it.

The amount of antioxidants in honey is the same as that in fruits and vegetables. Free radicals can damage cells, but antioxidants help stop that from happening.

2. The ability to kill bacteria and fungi.

Studies have shown that raw honey can kill bacteria and mold. It has an antiseptic in it called hydrogen peroxide. Different kinds of honey have different antibacterial and antifungal properties.

3. Take care of wounds and help them get better.

Raw honey can be used to treat wounds in hospitals and clinics because it kills germs and helps new tissue grow.

Studies have shown that raw honey helps people heal faster and fights off infections. Keep in mind that honey used in hospitals is medical grade, which means it has been carefully checked and is sterile.

4. Support digestive issues.

Even though there isn't a lot of proof, honey can be used to treat digestive problems like diarrhea. But it works to get rid of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), which is a common cause of stomach ulcers.

It's also a prebiotic, which means it feeds the good bacteria in the intestines, which are important for digestion and overall health.

5. Throat pain.

Honey has been used for a long time to soothe sore throats. Mix it into hot tea with lemon when you have a cold.

It can also make you stop coughing. Research shows that honey works just as well as dextromethorphan, a common ingredient in over-the-counter cough medicines. Straight from the jar, take one or two teaspoons.

6. Raw honey is bad for your health.

Raw honey can have both good and bad bacteria, like Clostridium botulinum, as well as prebiotics and nutrients that are good for you. This is very dangerous for young children. A child under one year old should never be given raw honey.
