The Healing Power of Honey

The Healing Power of Honey

By: Aimée Coates

Honey has always been a key ingredient in folk medicine and traditional healing. It’s still widely used today; brewed up  with ginger and lemon to ward off colds and coughs. But recent research has suggested that honey is much more powerful than we think.

Honey promotes rapid healing when applied directly to a wound.

Honey is packed full of antibacterial properties. It removes infectious bacteria from a wound by drawing out and dehydrating moisture, therefore reducing the chance of infection and speeding up the healing process. It also gives the wound a clean, clear base which increases the success rate of operations. The decrease in inflammation after a honey gauze is applied to a wound is testament to its anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces pain, swelling and the buildup of fluid.

(Please note that only medical-grade honey should be used to treat wounds.)

Honey supports tissue health

Raw Honey is rich in antioxidants. It balances out the free radicals in our bodies and protects us from Oxidative stress which can lead to cell and tissue damage. Oxidative stress can also accelerate the ageing process. Absorbing more antioxidant-rich foods such as raw honey is extremely beneficial to keeping our bodies strong and healthy.

Opt for raw honey as the pasteurization process kills a lot of the naturally occurring nutrients and oxidants. For delicious honey which supports health and is delicious drizzled over porridge on a winter’s morning , check out our Michigan red clover BHealthy Raw Honey.
