As COVID-19 has caused a major global health crisis in different human communities, attention to the natural approaches is significant. Natural Supporting Approaches are the best way for the body, such as traditional herbal and traditional medicines.
Honey is a natural food product, which next to its nutritional importance, possesses valuable therapeutic properties due to bioactive ingredients. More than 150 phenolic compounds in honey have been investigated, including phenolic acids and flavonoids. Phenolic compounds in honey (flavonoids and phenols) contribute to most of its pharmacological properties.
Honey has been long used to treat several diseases because it has a variety of pharmacological properties: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antidiabetic, antilipidemic, antifungal, and bactericidal activities. Moreover, traditional medicine in many countries considers natural honey as the first line of treatment for acute cough caused by upper respiratory tract infection, an acute symptom in COVID-19.
Antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antimicrobial, immunomodulatory and anticoagulant activities are the main benefits of the black seed. These activities are coming from Thymoquinone (TQ) ingredient in the black seed. Thymoquinone is an easy, cost-effective natural source. TQ use may thus look forward to improving COVID-19 treatment and defending against specific antiviral drug-induced side effects and toxicities.
Different Scientific reports confirm that honey plus black seed are beneficial natural products for any viral diseases, even COVID-19. Wanderer Honey will soon offer this new product for the first time in Australia.
