Studies have shown that raw organic honey can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with fibromyalgia. A 2018 study published in the Journal of Evidence-Based Integrative Medicine found that honey improved pain scores and sleep quality in fibromyalgia patients. The study also found that honey helped to reduce the levels of inflammatory markers in the patients' blood.
A study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2018 investigated the effects of honey on rats with liver damage caused by alcohol. The researchers found that honey improved liver function and reduced inflammation in the rats' livers. The study also found that honey had anti-fibrotic effects, which could help prevent or reverse liver fibrosis, a common complication of hepatitis.
Researchers found that those who took raw organic honey experienced relief from pneumonia symptoms more quickly than those who were given conventional medical treatment. The average time it took to recover was 8 days among those taking raw organic honey vs. 14 days among those receiving conventional medicine alone.
