While browsing the web for the benefits of consuming bitter kola, i was a bit surprised when i stumbled on the combination of bitter kola and honey, i was wondering how the combination was going to play out, and upon further research, i found out that there is so much the combination has to offer.
The combination of bitter kola and honey is a bit ironic, as on one hand, bitter kola has a very bitter taste, while honey on the other hand is very sweet, so many might just be wondering how such a combo works.
I have found out so many benefits of mixing bitter kola and honey together, here are some of their benefits:
> Helps clear sore throat: this is a very important benefit, as there are times where cough syrups do not just do the job, then people are advised to eat bitter kola or use palm oil or something. However, research has shown that bitter kola and honey works like magic when it comes to the clearing of sore throat.
> Serves as a remedy for cough: since the combination works like magic when it comes to clearing sore throat, bitter kola and honey also helps to cure cough effectively. The two serve as a perfect combination, with honey helping to neutralize the bitter taste of the kola, even if it is just a little!
> Healthier skin: honey on one hand already works wonders on one’s skin, however, using both of them makes one have healthier skin, as they both help reduce inflammation, where inflammation is often cause of acne, eczema amongst other skin problems.
> Anti-inflammation: both honey and bitter kola are rich in anti inflammatory properties and they help fight against inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, where studies show that both honey and bitter kola contain potassium which is key in fighting inflammatory properties.
