A 2022 study conducted by researchers at the Federal University of Ceará in Brazil found that a raw organic honey from the Brazilian rainforest can improve fertility by reducing chronic inflammation in the body. The researchers called it the "fertility honey."
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.
