Consumption of honey can help stabilize the free radicals in our bodies that cause cell damage and death.
Honey can also help the immune system. Honey has been known to trigger a response to infection and act as an anti-inflammatory agent. Its antimicrobial capacities have even caused some to recommend it for wound care.
