4. Helps to give you more energy

Forget plunking down your money for an energy drink that could give you a quick jolt of energy but could also be dangerous to your health. Honey is a carbohydrate that can give you a jolt of energy from the unprocessed sugar it contains. It doesn’t matter if you just can’t get started in the morning or if you have an afternoon slump. A tablespoon or two of raw honey can get directly into your bloodstream and give you an instant pick-me-up. You can also add it to your iced tea if you want to keep your energy level flowing.


5. Treats gum disease

Honey possesses an enzyme in its makeup that is able to generate hydrogen peroxide. This feature allows honey to cut down on the amount of plaque in the mouth while reducing the level of acid. Manuka honey is a powerful type of honey that when diluted, can replace your toothpaste and mouthwash in eliminating the germs and bacteria that are responsible for tooth decay and many diseases in the gum area.


6. Improves the immune system

Your immune system is what makes the difference between getting a small cold for a few days and being sick for a couple of weeks. The health of your immune system is what determines how long you will be ill and how quickly you will heal. With its properties in resolving antibacterial issues, as well as serving as an antioxidant, honey can help to recharge your immune system. Just a teaspoon of honey in a glass of warm water mixed with the juice of half a lemon in the morning will get you energized and put your immune system ready to ward off just about anything that comes its way.
