Cough can occur for various reasons. It can be a sign of a beginning illness, a complication or a side effect of a recent illness. Cough can be a consequence of irritation of the mucous membrane of the throat and nose by various factors, including harmful production factors, dust, plant pollen or animal hair. Cough can result from an allergic reaction, inflammatory or infectious process. Coughing can be caused by ingestion of a foreign body, trauma, nervous disorders or the action of irritating factors on the mucous membrane. Regardless of the reasons that caused the cough, honey from a cough will always help to eliminate it.
Honey has a softening effect on the mucous membrane, relieves inflammation, eliminates irritation and pain syndromes. It can reduce the level of microbial contamination and normalize microbiocenosis, as well as reduce the viral load on the body due to immunostimulating action. Honey has antitoxic and antioxidant properties, due to which it promotes the rapid restoration of damaged mucous membranes. Due to the softening effect, honey can reduce the impact of negative factors on the throat and nose, which reduces irritation. Also, honey promotes the transition of dry, unproductive cough to productive, moist. As a result, sputum leaves faster, bronchi have less mucus, recovery is faster.
