1. Rich in Antioxidants
Honey has the same amount of antioxidants as fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants aid in the prevention of cell destruction caused by free radicals.
Free radicals have been linked to the aging process as well as the progression of chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease. Polyphenols, antioxidant compounds found in honey, have been shown to help reduce heart attack in studies.
2. Helps you to heal your wounds and cuts
Manuka honey is used to treat wounds in surgical environments because it is an excellent germ killer and helps in tissue regeneration. It has been shown in studies to speed up recovery and prevent infection. Keep in mind that the honey used in hospitals is medical grade, which means it has been thoroughly tested and is clean. So, using store-bought honey to heal wounds is not a smart option!

Just kidding, but it does help you to soothe any throat pains that you may have so that you can sing more comfortably!
If you have a cold, take a spoonful of honey! Honey has long been used to treat sore throats. When you have a cough, mix it into hot tea with lemon.
It also has a cough suppressant effect. Honey has been shown to be as effective as dextromethorphan, a common ingredient in over-the-counter cough medicine, according to research. Take one or two teaspoonfuls right from the jar.
4. Helps to maintain your weight
Did you know that honey will help you lose weight? Honey burns body fat even as you sleep. It is one of the most effective foods for weight loss.
