Exploring the benefits of this healthy combination
Ginger and honey are well-known individually for their health benefits. Ginger is known as a natural remedy for digestive issues, nausea, and colds, while honey is rich in antioxidants, helps alleviate coughing, and contributes to positive cholesterol and blood triglyceride levels. In this article, we look at the benefits of combining ginger and honey for winter wellness, and all year round health.
Ginger and honey is a remedy for coughs and colds
Honey and ginger combined make an effective natural remedy for the common cold and coughs. Honey helps alleviate coughing by thinning mucus build-up, and ginger reduces inflammation in the throat.
It can benefit your heart health
The antioxidant properties of combining ginger and honey can benefit cardiac health. The mix may ease blood vessel tension, which reduces blood pressure.
Ginger and honey offers an immunity boost
Honey helps loosen up mucus that can clog your airways, while ginger works to reduce inflammation and is a natural expectorant. They are the perfect pair to battle sickness and assist your body’s ability to defend itself. Both ingredients have antioxidant properties which also help strengthen your immune system.
It can aid your digestion
Combining ginger and honey can help people with a weak digestive system. Ginger has been long used in Indian and Chinese medicine to treat gastric ailments like bloating, diarrhea, vomiting, and nausea. Honey is a potent prebiotic that promotes the good bacteria that live in the intestines – which are crucial not only for digestion, but your overall health too.
Ginger and honey treats nausea
Honey is a natural sweetener that is enriched with many essential nutrients, aids digestion, and helps counteract nausea. Ginger is considered to be one of the best remedies for treating nausea as it neutralises stomach acids and soothes an irritated stomach.
For treating morning sickness, one study suggests that combining honey and ginger may be just as effective as some medications, but with fewer side effects.
