I am a big believer in natural remedies, and I have been doing the water therapy for a really long time. And it helps. But recently, a friend mentioned the honey water therapy. And I have heard it works wonders. So I began having honey water every morning. Honey, even otherwise, is extremely beneficial and a great substitute to sugar.
To begin with, let me give you a recipe of Honey Water:
All you need is some natural honey (make sure it is absolutely natural and not tampered with, if you are looking for the best benefits), and water. Stir in a teaspoon of honey in a glass of lukewarm water such that its consistency resembles your blood plasma. By doing so, honey creates a congregated compound in the water, which escalates its therapeutic properties. The body easily absorbs this amalgamation. For best results, drink this mixture first thing every morning before you take in anything else.
Prevention is always better than cure, and this one not being an old wives’ tale, has stood up to the test of time. Trying this is definitely going to leave you feeling healthy and glowing.
Here’s an elaborate list of benefits that will make you want to try this immediately:
1. Weight Watchers’ Best Bud
Ahaan! You heard me! Although a hundred grams of honey contains about 305 calories, a teaspoon of it in warm water can work amazingly towards your weight loss goal. Honey is a great source of natural sugar, and it eliminates your sweet cravings throughout the day. Slowly, but steadily, you will see the effects, or rather the bounties of this amazing drink.
2. Regulates The Morning Routine
Honey is great for your digestive system. It is antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, and it magically relieves your stomach when had first thing every morning. It hydrates your colon, and adds water to your stools. It also alleviates acidity, thus giving your digestive tract a nice good wash.
3. An Immunity Boost
Raw organic honey is rich in enzymes. It is packed with vitamins and minerals, and therefore plays an amazing role in shielding your system from harmful bacteria. Being a great antioxidant, honey heals the skin from deep within, giving it that natural honey glow.
4. Downgrading Allergies
This one’s interesting – using raw local honey makes your body get accustomed to the pollens of that area, thereby making you less vulnerable to ecological allergies. Blessings to the bees for the amazing work they do (when you look at it in the greater scheme of things).
5. Fall In Love With The Mornings All Over Again
Waking up and smelling the coffee is so yesterday! Instead, waking up to sweet mornings is the new mantra! The sugar in the honey gives you an instant boost in energy, and completely wipes out the laze and lethargy. You are left feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, and totally ready to tackle the day.
6. The Throat And Cough Healer
This one is tried and tested and it works marvels. Honey truly does heal a sore throat and a rough cough. And when it comes to having it every day, you can totally forget what being down with a flu feels like.
Good-bye toxins! Well, remember that we spoke about great digestion and easy stools? That’s just half the job done. Adding a zing of lemon to the mixture increases urination, resulting in better cleansing and total detoxification. Not only are your colon and digestive system cleansed, but even your liver is greatly benefitted.
8. Cut Gas
Get rid of the gassy discomfort almost instantly with honey and water. This mix helps neutralize the gas, making you feel at ease.
9. Kind To The Heart
As if these benefits were not enough, a honey and water mix surges the good cholesterol, and prevents cardiovascular diseases. It even helps in the reduction of high blood pressure.
That’s a lot of goods to handle, but that is also enough motivation to try it out and recommend to your loved ones too! It is absolutely worth it! I can vouch for it.
