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
Tip : 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.
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.
