Honey as Medicine

Honey is a great sweetener and food, but it has some properties that allow you to use honey as medicine in some cases!

  • When consumed daily, pure honey will reduce your body’s susceptibility to infections.
  • Because of honey’s fructose content, many claim it is a cure for a hangover.
  • Swallowing a teaspoon of honey may soothe a sore throat or cough.
  • Boost your daily supply of antioxidants by eating honey.
  • If you’re feeling tired and need a boost of energy, stir a spoonful of honey into a glass of water or add honey and fresh fruit to yogurt for a power-packed snack!
  • Honey is a great source of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B-6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin and pantothenic acid.
