8. Stops Coughs

As we mentioned, honey is a terrific way to stop that tickle in your throat that keeps you (and everyone in the house) up all night long. You can mix some honey and lemon juice to stop that cough or add some lemon juice and honey to a cup of chamomile tea for a good night’s rest.

 

9. Stop Urinary Tract Infections

Because honey contains powerful antibacterial compounds, this makes it perfect for treating those annoying and painful urinary tract infections. Honey also encourages the growth of the good type of bacteria in your digestive tract, which can help with your long term immune system support.

 

10. Heals Wounds Quickly

Before antibiotics, honey was used to heal wounds quickly, kill infections, and prevent scarring of the skin. Manuka honey is the most powerful type when it comes to fighting bacteria, but any type of raw, organic honey will do the trick.

Honey is loaded with phytonutrients that help to protect plants from harm and provide humans with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits. Because honey is made from the pollen of various plants, is it any wonder why it is so healthy for us?

The exact ingredients in honey will depend greatly on which plants the bees are collecting pollen and nectar from, but most honey has powerful antibacterial, antivirus, and anti-inflammatory compounds that make it perfect for fighting disease while keeping us healthy.
