If we say ‘liquid gold’, what comes into your mind?
Admit it: whatever you might have thought of, ‘honey’, it probably wasn’t one of your answers.
It’s almost tragic how many of us are unaware of the miraculous powers of this substance.
Read on to find how you can make the most of this gift from nature and how beneficial it is for your health.
Natural energy booster
Needless to say, honey is completely natural, unprocessed sugar. When this sugar enters your bloodstream, it delivers a quick boost of energy. But unlike artificial drinks, this energy-booster is completely safe to drink.
Honey is packed with antibacterial and antioxidants which make it highly effective in fighting off various viruses and infections. It ultimately leads to increased immunity and better health. So be sure to take a teaspoon of honey every morning before or after breakfast.
Treats skin diseases
What make honey great for skincare are its moisturizing and nourishing properties. Applying it on acne-prone skin will help reduce the redness and provide relief from itching. Honey masks can be used for skin tone correction and to unclog blocked pores. It is also a great remedy for dry skin. Honey helps restore softness to dry, chapped lips as well.
Moreover, being a natural antiseptic, you can also use it to treat bruises, scratches and minor cuts and wounds.
Great for hair
If you have dandruff, you can now get rid of it with honey. Dilute honey with warm water and apply on scalp for half an hour before rinsing it off. Repeat every alternate day.
Remedy for cough and sinus issues
Whether it’s dry or wet cough, honey can cure it. Moreover, if you suffer from allergies or sinus attacks, honey contains the power to provide relief to them as well.
Health is wealth indeed. So increase your ‘wealth’ by incorporating more ‘liquid gold’ in your diet.
