Most probably you have already heard or tried golden milk, but did you know that there is also golden honey? This is something that you need to try because it is considered to be more efficient than any synthetic antibiotics. For preparing golden honey you will need turmeric, honey, and black pepper. This remedy is extremely powerful and kills bacteria and infections, boosts the immune system, and acts as anti-inflammatory agent.
The mixture also helps you improve digestion and stimulates the production and growth of beneficial bacteria. On the other hand, it doesn’t cause any side effects.
The FASEB Journal has conducted a research study proving that honey is extremely powerful against bacteria. In the research, they have used the defensing-1 protein that is found in honey and have added to other drugs. The proteins actually managed to support and treat the antibiotic-resistant infections. In another lab experiment, scientists have found that turmeric is also very effective against bacteria and viruses.
