Is Manuka honey effective against Coronavirus
How Manuka honey can help protect you against COVID-19
Honey naturally has the ability to reduce infections by enhancing your body's immune response. There are lots of scientific studies that show that honey has potential healing powers for many chronic health issues; lung diseases, heart diseases, diabetes, bacteria, and fungal infections, and ‘virucidal effect’ on some viruses.
The active substances found in honey have shown to be effective against viruses such as HIV, influenza virus, herpes simplex, and varicella-zoster virus. If honey can help you overcome these viruses, can it help you fight the Coronavirus disease by boosting your immune system?
A 2020 study “Prospects of honey in fighting against COVID-19: pharmacological insights and therapeutic promises” explores the possibility of using honey and specifically Manuka honey, as a way to boost our immunity against the covid-19.
They hypothesized that honey might well be beneficial for covid-19 infected patients. They believe it can help to benefit patients by offering deactivating properties against the virus, helping patients to regulate/boost immunity, and helping reduce hyper-inflammation.
