Ginger honey, properties
Ginger honey is obtained by infusing pieces of fresh ginger in honey instead of water. The resulting product is antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial since it combines the properties of ginger and honey and can therefore be used now and throughout the winter to strengthen the immune system and fight viruses and bacteria. The strength of the remedy comes from the particular synergy of ginger and honey. In fact, several scientific studies show that by combining these two ingredients we obtain a remedy with even more antioxidant properties and able to counteract more effectively the aging processes and free radical damage in the body (Sani et al, Biomed Res Int, 2014). Not only that, the synergy of honey and ginger would also result in a stronger antitumor action stimulating early apoptosis, namely programmed death, of diseased cells (Hakim et al, Asian Pac J Cancer Prev, 2014 - Porcza et al, Diseases , 2016). Finally, honey and ginger together are able to counteract even the most resistant bacteria, with a more effective and stronger action than the single ingredients (Ewnetu et al, Evid Based Complement Alternat Med, 2014).
