Known as nature’s golden elixir with numerous health benefits, honey has been used a natural sweetener long before the mass production of sugar. This natural substance is remarkable for the fact that not only is it delicious, it’s also very healthy for our bodies.
Let’s look at at 7 things that could start happening to your body when you make honey a part of your daily diet.

1. Loss of Excess Weight 

Despite honey containing calories and many sugars, honey actually boosts our bodies metabolism thus aiding weight loss. This is why doctors recommend staying off all sugar-based sweeteners, except honey!

Tip : Add a tablespoon of honey with warm water and squeeze fresh lemon into it. You may add blackseed oil or cinnamon for additional effect. Take this on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. 

2. Healthier Stomach

Honey has been used traditionally for several stomach ailments and now there is scientific evidence showing that honey is an antiseptic and thus prevents various diseases associated with the digestive tract. Honey also helps in preventing hyper acidity, destroys germs and helps heal the mucus membrane. 

: Have a
tablespoon of raw honey after your meal for easy digestion or mix it in a glass of milk or warm water to combat acidity. 


3. Lower Cholesterol

Honey has zero cholesterol and in fact daily consumption of honey has been shown to lower cholesterol. The anti-oxidants, vitamins and other constituent components we are only beginning to understand have a beneficial effect in fighting excess cholesterol.

Tip : Have a tablespoon of raw honey when you go to bed or early morning.


4. Stronger Heart 

Research has shown that honey may be as good at battling heart disease as some vegetables and fruits. The abundance of antioxidants in honey can prevent arteries from narrowing, a dangerous occurrence that could lead to heart failure, memory loss or headaches. 

Tip : Have a mixture of raw honey, garlic, lemon, ginger, apple cider vinegar (safa elixir) on an empty stomach in the morning and/or half an hour before meals at night. 


5. Clearer Skin

The anti-bacterial nature of honey makes it great for acne treatment and prevention. Being extremely moisturizing, it also adds to facial glow and the anti-oxidants present in it slow down cell-ageing. 

Tip : Use high quality raw honey (forest honey) and spread it evenly across your face. Leave it on for 15-45 minutes. Rinse off.
