The amazing properties and unique flavor of turmeric, in combination, help in providing amazing health benefits. In fact, this powerful mixture boosts immunity, treats inflammation, fights bacterial and viral infections, and soothes allergies.
In addition, raw honey has powerful anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antimicrobial, antioxidant, and antitumor properties. It successfully fights infections without creating harmful bacterias like modern antibiotics. Plus, its consumption helps digestion, improves the gut microflora, and promotes gastrointestinal health.
Honey can also be taken orally in order to boost the immune system. Moreover, due to the high antioxidant levels, honey improves cardiovascular health and prevents heart disease. Researchers also claim that it suppresses a cough even better than medicated antibiotics and cough syrups.
On the other hand, turmeric helps in the case of countless other health issues. It contains over 100 bioactive components, and its active ingredient, curcumin, provides powerful antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. It also promotes digestion and stomach health and prevents chronic digestive-related conditions, like peptic ulcers, acid reflux, irritable bowel syndrome, and Crohn’s disease.
Here’s how to prepare the powerful combination of turmeric and honey:
- 100 grams (3.5 oz) raw honey
- 1 tbsp turmeric powder
- A pinch of black pepper (to boost the absorption of turmeric)
- 1 tsp lemon zest (optional)
- 2 tbsp of unfiltered raw apple cider vinegar (optional)
Mix honey with turmeric and black pepper. If you decide to use apple cider vinegar and lemon zest, add them as well. Then, pour the mixture into a glass container with a lid and store at room temperature for up to two weeks.
Consume a teaspoon each day to get rid of allergies, colds, flu, and fortify the immune system.
In the case of a cold or the flu, take 1/2 a teaspoon every hour on the first day of the treatment, continue taking 1/2 a teaspoon every 2 hours, and on the third day, take the same amount three times daily.
To treat respiratory conditions like lung issues, asthma, and bronchitis, take half a teaspoon three times a day.
Note: Keep the golden honey in the mouth until it is dissolved before you swallow it.
