You have undoubtedly heard of or even tried the incredible health benefits of turmeric golden milk, but today we're going to share with you another incredible turmeric homemade recipe: turmeric golden honey.
It is the strongest antibiotic, according to Ayurvedic texts, and is made of a blend of black pepper, raw honey, and turmeric.
This strong antibiotic boosts immunity, combats bacterial and viral infections, and has strong anti-inflammatory qualities that help relieve seasonal allergies. It has no negative side effects, supports healthy gut flora, and enhances digestion.
In July 2010, the FASEB Journal published a study that describes how honey kills bacteria.
Namely, researchers have found that bees produce a certain protein known as defensin-1, which is included in honey. This protein might be added to drugs in the future, to help the fight against antibiotic-resistant infections.
On the other hand, numerous animal and test-tube experiments have confirmed the potent antimicrobial capacity of turmeric to destroy bacteria and viruses.
