Can honey cure the common cold?

Can honey cure the common cold?

Studies show that honey can be effective fighting its symptoms of the common cold, first and foremost coughing. Honey has been known to be an effective cough remedy. According to a study by Mayo Clinic, honey can be an efficient cough suppressant.

"In one study, children ages 1 to 5 with upper respiratory tract infections were given up to 2 teaspoons (10 milliliters) of honey at bedtime. The honey seemed to reduce nighttime coughing and improve sleep."

According to the study, honey may be just as effective as widely used cough depressant ingredients in typical over-the-counter drugs. Since honey is all natural and widely available, it is always our first choice.

Many find that an effective way of soothing a red, overly blown nose is applying natural lip balm, containing natural beeswax. And this includes our families. It's truly magical!
