Turmeric is one of the most beneficial superfoods on the planet, and studies have confirmed countless of its benefits. Its active ingredient, curcumin, is a powerful anti-inflammatory, and effectively prevents and treats heart diseases, joint pain, muscle stiffness, Alzheimer’s, and cancer.
Researchers have even found that turmeric can be more effective than commonly used anti-inflammatory drugs. The findings of a 2009 study published in Alternative Medicine Review showed that:
“Curcumin may have potential as a therapeutic agent in diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, pancreatitis, arthritis, and chronic anterior uveitis, as well as certain types of cancer.”
On the other hand, studies have also shown that Manuka honey is the most effective honey type.
This honey has powerful antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that make it a potent preventative and healing remedy.
“Manuka honey displays significant antibacterial effects even when the [enzymatic] hydrogen peroxide activity is blocked. Its mechanism may be related to the low pH level of honey and its high sugar content (high osmolarity) that is enough to hinder the growth of microbes.”
Raw Manuka offers numerous health benefits, including:
- Controlling cholesterol levels
- Fighting systemic inflammation
- Treating diabetes
- Treating eye, ear, and sinus infections
- Treating gastrointestinal issues and disorders
- Preventing and treating cancer
If you combine these two natural miracles, you will get an incredibly powerful natural cure that can help you treat numerous different health issues and ailments:
