Benefits of honey from beauty to wound healing. In a new BMJ Evidence-Based Medicine journal article, the University of Oxford researchers reviewed 14 published studies of honey’s effectiveness ss in alleviating URI symptoms. They found that honey improved both the frequency and severity of coughs compared to traditional treatments and could serve as a cost-effective alternative to antibiotics. I discovered something.
The authors of this study conclude that further controlled studies are needed. However, this analysis was prompted by concerns about antimicrobial resistance, partly related to URI. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has named antibprescriptionsance one of the world’s most pressing public health problems, and another 2017 study found that honey may be the key. Scientists at the University of Illinois at Chicago have discovered that antibacterial compounds made by bees may be the basis for new antibiotics.
In addition to natural sugars and antioxidants, honey contains several nutrients. For example, although the amount per serving is small, honey contains 31 minerals, including all important minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Honey also contains approximately 600 volatile compounds thought to contribute to its potential biomedical benefits. In short, honey doesn’t provide most of the nutrients in your diet, but it certainly isn’t empty calories. Researchers are still learning about the functional benefits of its complex architecture.
