Benefits of Raw Honey

How do you use honey, especially the raw honey? Research has linked honey consumption with weight loss. It has found that replacing sugar with honey can actually help prevent packing on extra pounds and also lower blood sugar. Here are a lot more benefits of consuming raw honey.

Raw honey promotes restorative sleep in two ways: By consuming honey before bedtime, it restocks the liver’s glycogen supply and prevents the brain from triggering a crisis search for fuel, which can wake you up. Secondly, eating raw honey fosters the release of melatonin in the brain by creating a small spike in insulin levels, which stimulates the release of tryptophan in the brain

For the treatment of burns and wounds: Honey is typically applied directly to the problem area or in a dressing that’s changed every 24 to 48 hours. Sometimes the dressing is left in place for up to 25 days. A combination of honey and ghee has also been advocated and used as dressing for infected wounds since 1991 in four Mumbai hospitals.

For treating ulcers: Honey has been studied for its use in effectively treating various types of ulcers as well. Honey may reduce the size, pain and odor of problematic skin ulcers.

For treating coughs: Raw honey has been shown to be as effective in treating coughs as over-the-counter commercial cough syrups. Increasing scientific evidence shows that a single dose of honey can reduce mucus secretion and coughs. For a cough, a half teaspoon to two teaspoons of honey at bedtime is a recommended dosage for anyone over the age of one.

Honey is also very useful in weight management: Honey burns body fat even while when you are sleeping. It is one of the best foods for losing weight. Doctors recommend to have a spoonful of honey before going to bed. You can also consume a little honey with warm water on empty stomach early in the morning.

Having it first thing in the morning, helps increase the metabolism, which in turn helps reduce weight faster. Honey is also good for improving your overall health.

Honey strengthens the human  immune system: Honey has countless medicinal properties that naturally help in curing a sore throat. Its antioxidants and bacteria-fighting assets also help against fighting infections that are caused by viruses, bacteria and fungi.

Nourishes your skin and face: Using Honey for skin is very useful because of its moisturizing and nourishing properties. Honey is the best natural moisturizer, especially for your dry skin and it is also very easy to apply.

Honey is beneficial to the hair: Honey is one of the best natural home remedies for dandruff. It does not only provide nourishment to dry hair but it also gives you smooth and soft hair. You can also use honey and lavender with green tea to prevent hair fall. All you need to do is mix 2 tablespoons of Honey with equal amount of vegetable oil and apply it on your hair.
