Honey makes you healthier and helps you fight against various diseases. Here are a few health benefits of honey, which can help you to improve your immune system.
For thousands of years, people throughout the world have hailed the health benefits of honey in both food and medicine. Interestingly, honey, a complex form of sugars, has been documented to have several therapeutic roles: a remedy for respiratory infection and cough in children, a wound healer and immune inducer, and an anti-diabetic and antibacterial agent.
According to researchers, honey is a good alternative for treating kids’ troublesome coughs. For children with upper respiratory tract infections, honey acts as a natural cough suppressant. However, it is not considered safe for children under 1-year-old. Moreover, honey is as effective as dextromethorphan, an important ingredient of cough syrups. Consequently, honey seems to reduce nighttime cough and improve sleep.
Besides, due to its acidic pH, honey promotes wound healing. When applied to wounds, the acidic pH encourages the blood to release oxygen. Honey also contains the defensin-1 protein, which helps repair wound tears. Although honey has not been proven therapeutic in chronic ulcers, it has miraculous effects for acute wounds and superficial partial-thickness burns.
Additionally, honey can help reduce blood pressure and cholesterol because it is rich in antioxidants such as phenolic acids and flavonoids. The antioxidants help to regulate blood pressure. Hence, honey can protect your heart’s health and can save you from life-threatening diseases.
Hence, honey, the blessing of Allah for humans, naturally heals the human body. And now science has also recognized its medical benefits. So, which of the bounties of your Lord you deny?
