A 2019 study at Penn State University, USA, found that a small compound found in raw honey can inhibit epileptic seizures. An international team of scientists found that gluconate, found naturally in raw honey, acts as an anticonvulsant. Quercetin, found in raw organic honey, restores tryptophan levels countering the depressive effect of epilepsy. Other flavonoids also have strong anticonvulsant effects, minimising the behavioural symptoms of a seizure.
In a study published in 2017, researchers found that daily intake of raw organic honey reduced both the intensity and the frequency of migraine headaches. The research, which was published in the Journal of Headache Pain, involved 50 people with migraine headaches.
A study published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment found raw organic honey to be an effective remedy for vitiligo. 55% of patients in the study saw an improvement in their pigmentation after taking 2g of raw organic honey per day.
