Turmeric and Honey

By Dr. Keerthy Sunder

Is Honey and Turmeric Good For You?


In fact, the mixture of turmeric and honey has often been cited as the "elixir of life" due to its numerous medicinal benefits. You may be wondering "Why is that?"...and the answer lies in the unique health properties of both:

  1. Honey is a natural type of superfood. Despite its delicious sweetness, honey also contains potent medicinal properties. It has exhibited anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antiatherogenic, antithrombotic, immune modulating, and analgesic properties, among other functions.
  2. Turmeric contains the essential active ingredient - curcumin - that can be applied in over 150 therapeutic activities. Curcumin is traditional natural remedy, with well-known and scientifically observed antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties.

Blended together, honey and turmeric work synthetically and increase each other's individual advantages. The mix of these two ingredients is known as Golden Honey, and is also called 'the strongest natural antibiotic known to man'.

Here, we take a look at the powerful healing potential of turmeric and honey. Then, we explore how you can further enhance the beneficial health effects of the mix starting today. At the end, we welcome your questions and comments and do our best to respond personally as soon as we can.

Top 6 Turmeric With Honey Benefits

BENEFIT #1: Resolve Digestive Problems.

Turmeric mixed with raw honey helps digestion, reduces gas and bloating, and increases the number of good bacteria in the intestines. The blend can also be used to treat stomach aches, stomach ulcers, and stomach upsets... as turmeric cleanses the digestive tract.

BENEFIT #2: Prevent Cancer.

The curcumin found in turmeric has been scientifically proven to actively induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in various types of cancerous cells. Honey contains floral flavonoids that have been shown to boost the body's antioxidant levels which combats the potentially harmful free radicals that are known to cause oxidative stress, thus preventing cancer.

BENEFIT #3: Relieve Joint Pain.

Honey and curcumin are both very strong anti-inflammatory agents. One study found that turmeric worked just as well as ibuprofen and diclofenac sodium for alleviating the symptoms of arthritis, especially osteoarthritis. What's more, honey and turmeric are natural and don't cause any of the adverse effects in the gastrointestinal tract and cardiovascular system that are connected to analgesics and NSAIDs use.

BENEFIT #4: Aid Respiratory Problems.

Raw honey and turmeric can be taken to naturally treat coughs. They both have incredible antibacterial and anti-viral functions that make them one of the best remedy to cure respiratory problems that appear as a result of a cough, a cold, and even allergies.

BENEFIT #5: Prevent Heart Attacks.

High levels of cholesterol in the body may lead to heart diseases. Many studies have shown that turmeric and honey can lower cholesterol levels in our body. In addition, a 2012 study indicated that the strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of the curcumin from turmeric may help reduce the chances of a heart attack by as much as 65% in patients who underwent bypass surgery.

BENEFIT #6: Improve Brain Health.

The chemical curcumin that is found in turmeric has antioxidant and neuroprotective effects on the brain, which only add to the brain-cell-protective effect of honey. The mixture has been used in multiple treatment approaches for dementia and traumatic brain injury.


"Curcumin, a substance in turmeric, may help to reduce inflammation. Several studies suggest that it might ease symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, like pain and inflammation. Other compounds in turmeric might also be medicinal.

In lab tests, curcumin seems to block the growth of certain kinds of tumors. One study showed that turmeric extract containing curcumin could -- in some cases -- stabilize colorectal cancer that wasn't helped by other treatments. But more research is needed."
- Dr. Melinda Ratini, DO, MS

"No cancer has been found, to my knowledge, which is not affected by curcumin. The reason curcumin is so effective against cancer is that it hits not just a single target or cell signalling pathway but dozens of targets implicated in cancer."
- Dr. Bharat Aggarwal Ph.D

Honey, Turmeric and Cinnamon + Ginger

What if one formula could provide you with the highest quality selection of these ingredients?

Well, now it can!

Our own Dr. Sunder - a double board certified physician - has spent years of research in the field of neuroscience, and made one of the most important discoveries of his career:

The key to optimizing physical and mental health lies in giving the brain the essential nutrients it needs.

Summarizing the knowledge of decades of work from his medical practice inspired him to combine cutting-edge science with ancient Eastern wellness techniques. As a result, Dr. Sunder created Honey Love - a combination of some of the world's finest wild-sourced super-foods in a rejuvenating burst of sweetness.

Each jar of Honey Love contains:

  • Organic, wild-sourced turmeric
  • Raw, wild-sourced thistle honey
  • 100% natural and unprocessed Canadian prairie honey

Plus, Dr. Sunder decided to include the following two ingredients into the honey-turmeric mix:

  • True Ceylon cinnamon
  • Organic ginger powder

The reason for this inclusion of extra ingredients is that the synergistic mix of organic, wild-sourced turmeric, cinnamon, and ginger can double or triple the level of antioxidants that help detoxify your body and safeguard your physical and mental health.

So, if you are feeling ready to treat your mind, body, and taste buds to a spoonful of booming health each day...

Try Honey Love!

Honey with Turmeric for Cough

Need some additional reasons to consider the power house combo of turmeric and honey? Turmeric and honey have antibacterial and antiviral properties that can fight against the infections causing microbes in the respiratory system. In addition to this, honey has the ability to soothe an irritated throat.

Here's a recipe for honey + turmeric for coughing.


Add 1 tbsp of organic turmeric in 3.5 oz (100 gr) of raw, unprocessed honey. Mix well to create a homogeneous paste, and then place the Golden Honey mixture in a glass container.

Take half a teaspoon every hour on the first day of your treatment.
Take half a teaspoon every 2 hours on the second day of your treatment.
Take half a teaspoon 3 times a day on the third day of your treatment.

If you want to boost this powerful concoction even further, add ginger and cinnamon to the mixture. This combination is even more effective in treating cough.

Or, simply use Honey Love which already contains the best, raw, and organic forms of all of these ingredients. Best part: You don't have to mix anything! It's all ready and prepared for you to scoop out of the jar!

Honey-Turmeric Cancer Protocol

Studies have shown that taking one spoon of honey and turmeric on a daily basis can raise levels of health-promoting antioxidants in the body. Antioxidants help block free radicals in the body that cause many diseases, including cancer.

More specifically honey and turmeric contain the following antioxidant and cancer-fighting compounds:

  • Polyphenols
  • Flavonoids

Evidence is growing that honey may have the potential to be anticancer agent. Though the full mechanism of anti-cancerogenic action of honey is yet to be fully understood, studies have shown that honey has anticancer effect through its interference with multiple cell-signaling pathways.

Curcumin has also been shown to be effective in killing a wide variety of tumor cell types through diverse mechanisms. Studies also indicate the selective role of curcumin towards cancer cells. In fact, curcumin has been shown to inhibit the proliferation and survival of almost all types of tumor cells. Although several reasons have been suggested, it is still not fully understood why curcumin kills tumor cells, but not normal cells.

But there is more!

Adding ginger to your honey-turmeric mixture can further stimulate antioxidant enzymes that reduce cancer growth and metastasis. These ingredients have also been linked to reducing nausea and vomiting linked to chemotherapy.
