Besides as an alternative sweetener for coffee or tea or a health supplement, here are some more ways honey can help you:
- Better than cough syrup
- Best for wound healing
According to the Times, honey was more effective than dextromethorpan, the active ingredient in most cough syrups. Others also say that honey can also help relieve asthma and sore throat.
Bedsores, diabetic ulcers, and burn wounds have been shown to heal faster using honey as a wound dressing. One research study described how it is applied and notes that it reduced inflammation, swelling, and pain. Heavily-infected wounds and wounds tainted with antibiotic-resistant bacteria were all rendered sterile minus any side-effects.
