The numerous health benefits of Honey and Ginger

Combining honey and ginger not only combines their multiple health benefits and healing properties but also offers a peculiar balance of sweetness and spice that is unmatched.

Let’s take a closer look at what this combination of honey and ginger has to offer.

Health Benefits of Honey & Ginger

A mixture of ginger and honey can work wonders for the body. Here are some of the health benefits you can look forward to.

Provides Cough and Cold Relief

Traditionally, the most popular uses of honey and ginger together were for treating cough, cold, and other respiratory issues. Several cultures across the world use this combination for relief from symptoms such as a sore throat or a runny nose. While we do not have a relevant study on this particular combination, individual researches on ginger and honey have found that these two might relieve the common cold and cough.

The book Herbal Medicine: Biomolecular and Clinical Aspects credited gingerol in ginger with its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. This could help in relieving the symptoms of a cold. Another study, published in the Journal of Family Practice found that a spoonful of honey before bedtime could relieve cough in children. However, keep in mind that honey is not recommended for children younger than a year. 

You can use this as an accessible home remedy for quick relief from the symptoms. Use a spoonful of Honey infused with Ginger in lemon water every morning.

Eases Nausea

Ginger is commonly used to provide relief from nausea. This is especially effective for nausea, morning sickness, and vomiting during pregnancy. Ginger tea with honey might have a similar effect. The addition of honey makes it more palatable for people who don’t like the taste of raw ginger.

Contains Antioxidant Properties

Ginger and honey individually are known to have potent antioxidant properties. Individually, these ingredients may protect our bodies against free radicals, which in turn offers protection against cardiovascular conditions and several other diseases. Combining the two can give us a double boost of these powerful protective biological compounds. 

Aids Digestion

A ginger and honey tonic or syrup is believed to be a good digestive aid due to the possible inherent digestive properties of ginger. Just one teaspoon of ginger and honey tonic can help people with a weak digestive system. Ginger was used in Indian and Chinese medicine to treat gastric ailments like bloating, vomiting, and nausea. Honey was revered in other traditional schools of medicine for treating gastrointestinal problems. Also improving the microbial balance in the gut.
