You surely have heard of or even tried the amazing health benefits of the turmeric golden milk, but today, we intend to present another miraculous homemade recipe with turmeric- the turmeric golden honey.
According to Ayurveda scriptures, it is the strongest antibiotic, and it is a mixture of turmeric, raw honey, and black pepper.
This potent antibiotic fights bacterial and viral infections, strengthens the immune system and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that soothe seasonal allergies. It improves digestion, supports the beneficial gut flora, and has no side-effects.
FASEB Journal published a research in July 2010, which explains the way in which honey destroys bacteria.
Namely, researchers have found that bees produce a certain protein known as defensin-1, which is included in honey. This protein might be added to drugs in the future, to help the fight against antibiotic-resistant infections.
On the other hand, numerous animal and test-tube experiments have confirmed the potent antimicrobial capacity of turmeric to destroy bacteria and viruses.
