Health Benefits Of Honey

Honey Is Good For You!

In some part its human nature to be suspicious of something with a wonderful, sweet taste, and that you can find in the grocery store having health benefits. The reality is honey has a long history of being used for a number of practical purposes including medical uses.

Why A Generation Is Swarming To Honey

The concept of using the physical effects of honey in various forms goes back to the ancient Egyptians who not made offerings of honey to their gods. They used honey for everything from dressing wounds to embalming fluid. In dressing wounds the Egyptians were acting on observation of effects of honey, but now we understand why they would use it in this way. Honey is now known to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. While you want to employ topical antibacterial gels for wounds, and contact a medical health professional, you can use these benefits of honey for a number of common issues. Manuka honey is used to treat chronic leg ulcers and pressure sores by medical professionals today.

Important Warnings About Honey

Some family members are put at risk by honey including children who are under 1-year-old. Anyone suffering from diabetes should only have honey in the usual moderation they have natural sweeteners.

How To Find Antibacterial Honey?

When you shop for honey you will notice that some is lighter while others darker. The differences comes, not so surprisingly from what the bees have been exposed to themselves. In fact, the botanicals and plants in the area around a beehive will have an effect on the taste of the honey itself. The darker the honey the better you will find its antioxidant power.

Honey For Colds

Perhaps the biggest and most helpful recipe of all time is the honey, lemon, and tea mixture given for colds for centuries. Research has shown that buckwheat honey can help in easing the early symptoms of cold. This sweet substance can aid in calming membranes and easing coughs. Studies have found it works well as cough suppressant, and isn’t as drying to the tissues as antihistamine.

Honey And Treats

Honey makes a great natural treat for the family. Having a supply of recipes for bars, cakes or cookies using honey is a good way to avoid the over use of processed snacks. Honey based products will usually keep well, and gives the entire family a sweet and healthy option.
