Oxford study says “Honey is good for curing cough and cold”, People say “pehle se pata tha”:
Honey and haldi wala doodh are the two most trusted and old desi nushke to cure cough and cold. And trust me we all have realized the importance now, in this pandemic, we all now swear by this desi nushke. While some people might say that these home remedies don’t work, Oxford university surely agrees!
As per a report, physicians from Oxford University’s Medical School and Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences have discovered that honey is way more effective in curing cough and cold than antibiotics and is a safer, cheaper, and more readily available alternative.
In a study published, the researchers wrote: “Honey was superior to usual care for the improvement of symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections. It provides a widely available and cheap alternative to antibiotics. Honey could help efforts to slow the spread of antimicrobial resistance, but further high quality, placebo-controlled trials are needed.”
Honey may be a better treatment for coughs and colds than over-the-counter medicines, a new study finds. https://t.co/9Y1TKJIVSs
