Honey is a viscous substance rich in a number of nutrients. In Ayurveda, it is called as “Perfection of Sweet”.
Honey is one of the best known home remedies for dry and wet cough. It can be taken along with some ginger juice and black pepper to help relieve cough and throat irritation. Having Honey in lukewarm water every morning improves digestion and helps manage weight. It is a good alternative to sugar and can be taken by diabetics due to its low glycemic index.
Honey can be applied on burns and wounds to help prevent infection and promote healing. This is due to its antibacterial and antioxidant properties. It can also nourish and soothe your skin in case of sunburn.
