A 2020 study at Oxford University, UK, found that compared to antibiotics and cough medicine, raw organic honey reduced cough intensity and frequency. Raw organic honey contains glucose oxidase enzymes which convert the glucose in honey into gluconic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and free radicals that destroy bacteria. Bacteria cannot survive in hydrogen peroxide. That is where the antibacterial power of raw organic honey comes from.
Giving your child raw organic honey water every morning can help spread natural antibiotics in your child's body so they are less likely to catch a severe Strep A infection.
A study published in the Malaysian Journal of Medical Science in 2015 found that raw honey can help to protect your heart by lowering triglycerides and bad cholesterol in your blood.
