3. A Spoonful of Honey Will Quiet a Cough
This was surprising but makes sense. Honey can soothe a sore throat and quiet a cough. The thick texture of honey coats your throat. In fact, some studies have shown honey to be more effective than cough or sore throat medications. While you shouldn’t throw your cough syrup out, having honey on hand is a good idea, too. And because honey is all natural, you don’t have to worry about it affecting medications your doctor may have prescribed.
