Healthy, flavourful, and incredibly sweet – honey on it’s own has many proven health benefits. Combining honey with water not only makes it a refreshing drink but also retains all those amazing health benefits. Honey water is known to have antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties, which can help you fight off many diseases as well as give an extra kick to your usual glass of water.
How much honey and the type you add to your water is up to you and to your taste. We normally suggest anywhere from 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon in a glass is a perfect amount.
Now, let us take a look at how beneficial combining honey with warm water can be for you to add to your daily routines.
