How To Use This Sweet, Natural Antibacterial
Want to naturally boost your immunity and fight off bacteria that lurks around every corner? Superfoods that contain antibiotic properties are often given a high amount of skepticism by many, but these super foods could be the best way to fight off illness. Especially for those who enjoy honey.
Honey has always been termed as an effective antibiotic. Current research from Salve Regina University found:
– Honey works well against the common bacteria E. Coli
– It also works against Staph infection (Staphylococcus aureus), though not as effectively as against E. Coli
So what does this mean for you?
Honey is a great condiment to have around your home, not only for your foods, but for your health as well. You can utilize honey for scrapes and cuts as a way to ward off infection. Just apply a bit to the cut as you would a normal antibacterial ointment. Additionally, science is looking to honey to help with the very serious problem of bacterial resistance to current antibiotics.
One word of caution: If you are using honey for the treatment of wounds or cuts, be sure to use a medical grade honey, which is sterilized and free from impurities.
Who knew that the condiment sitting around your home could be the next big scientific breakthrough? Natural living can be sweet, indeed.
