Health Benefits of Raw Honey
Honey, similar to turmeric, has been treasured for its medicinal value since the ancient times. It is especially known for its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. As a gift from the bees, raw honey is packed with health benefits.
Honey is rich in antioxidants known as phenolic compounds and can be compared with many antioxidants as vegetables and fruits.
It is very effective against free radicals that push along the aging process and may also lead to diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Due to the antioxidants in honey it protects from cellular damage caused by free radicals.
It is also well to know that it is hard to get enough of these medicinal benefits of turmeric just from a curry or soup. To get the maximum benefits of a turmeric supplement, you need to take at least 1-2 tablespoons daily, even everyone knows that choking down a tablespoon of turmeric powder isn’t very pleasant. To avoid that unpleasant taste the powder can be mixed with honey, which makes the spice much more palatable and easy to store in a “pill” form. The mixture of the turmeric with local, raw honey will also help with seasonal allergies.
