The Golden Nectar! (8th May 2021):
Are some of you tired of frequently itching your head? Those chemical hair solutions available outside don’t really live up to your expectations?
No worries!… Did you know about the secret of honey being helpful in treating scalp problems?
Let’s share with you a simple trick! You are sure to get the best results within a week..
Take 1-2 tablespoon of honey. Mix it with half a cup of warm water. Apply the mixture to your scalp on a regular basis, and leave it for about three hours. Get ready to say bye-bye to dandruff and hair fall!
That’s not all!…
Honey!…Yes! There is more to this sweet natural treat than just bees… It’s versatile, flavourful, and a good healthy choice! From fresh pastries to hot tea—honey can be a great addition to anything…
But, why is that so?…
Well, there is plenty that separates honey from a plain table sugar.
Honey contains vitamins and minerals, including iron, copper, and zinc. In fact, studies have found that 21 grams of honey holds about 64 calories, and is indeed a healthier alternative to sugar!… No wonder our mums insisted so much on adding honey to our winter essentials!
Now, let’s have a quick look at the lesser known yet amazing health benefits of the miracle tonic! For obtaining the best results, we would suggest you use unprocessed raw, organic honey with no preservatives or other additives.
The Five Wonders of Honey:
- Rich in Antioxidants:
Honey has antioxidants that help regulate blood pressure, and keep your body clean and healthy from inside. They also reduce the risk of some cancers and heart diseases.
Remember, a healthy outside comes from the inside! So, first thing in the morning, have one tablespoon of honey in lukewarm water for proper digestion.
- A Great Sugar Replacement for Diabetics:
Being low in calories, honey reduces the (LDL) bad cholesterol levels, and raises the HDL or good cholesterol.
- A Skin-Friendly, Quick Healer:
Honey not just keeps the skin smooth and glowing… It benefits the skin in various ways, and reduces the growth of acne and pimples. What’s more! It also acts as a catalyst in healing wounds, scratches and burns.
- Helps Suppress Cold:
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, honey has been proven to soothe and suppress both cough and cold!
(Another secret tip! If you have a common cold, mix honey with some crushed ginger or basil leaves for immediate relief.)
- A Natural Energy Booster:
If consumed at an unmoderated rate, sugar can be a hindrance to the success of any weight management plan. We all know that fat accumulation can lead to health issues such as cardiovascular diseases and obesity.
But, honey has natural sugar and gets easily burned by the body. It works wonders if you replace sugar with honey in certain recipes for fewer calories and more health benefits!
Honey is another precious gift of Mother Nature. To make the most out of its multiple health benefits, please consider incorporating honey within your regular diet schedule. Give a boost to your immune system! Stay healthy and safe!
