The benefits of honey
Organic or raw honeyis filled with antioxidants, enzymes and minerals including iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and selenium. It is also loaded with Vitamin B6, thiamine, riboflavin and niacin. (Industrial honey is usually processed so the heat destroys these natural enzymes, vitamins and minerals). Organic honey is also excellent at helping with digestion. The vitamins and minerals present in honey help lower cholesterol levels and is a great source of energy for your body and mind, while helping you maintain a healthy weight since it can be used as a sugar replacement. And as if this were not enough, its antioxidant properties make honey an excellent ally of the immune system.
Make the mix
Take several cloves of garlic but do not completely remove the skins (just remove the first layer, the easiest to remove that is the one that keeps all the cloves together next to the base). Then place them into an empty glass jar. You can use a container of previously sanitized jam jar. Finally, pour the organic honey over the jar filled with garlic. Use a spoon to remove the bubbles. Okay, you already have an excellent home remedy! Now you just have to leave it in the refrigerator or in the cupboard, at room temperature, for a few days before consuming it. If you close the jar properly every time you ingest this mixture, it can last up to 2 years.
