Honey For Your Cough

Food Fact: Honey works extremely well as a cough suppressant.  In one study, children with respiratory tract infections were given two teaspoons of raw honey directly before going to bed.  Another group were given recommended doses of dextromethorphan, which is a common cough suppressant.  The children who were given the honey showed marked signs of decreased coughing in the night, which matched almost perfectly the decreased coughing in the children who were given dextromethorphan.  So if you don’t have any cough medicine around, honey seems to be a good natural alternative to synthesized medicine in this case.

    Hi Noreen,
    My husband and I are beekeepers w/20 years experience. While I believe that honey is excellent as a relief for a sore throat and cough, I get suspicious of any picture, article, blog that starts….”A study proves…” Please cite your source somewhere in your blog. There are too many myths and half truths out there. Honey is great but it is not a cure all miracle. Thanks
