Seven Shocking Benefits of Honey You Should Know

Published

on

Honey is sweet, viscous food substance made by honey bees and some related insects. Bees produce honey from the sugary secretions of plants or from secretions of other insects, by regurgitation, enzymatic activity, and water evaporation. Bees store honey in wax structures called honeycombs.

Checkout the benefits of honey

  1. Improves Sleep

Do you lie awake all night staring at the ceiling, tossing and turning? Use the famous milk and honey remedy to fall asleep quickly. All you need to do is add a teaspoon of honey to a glass of hot milk. Honey releases serotonin (a neurotransmitter that improves your mood), and “the body converts serotonin into melatonin (a chemical compound that regulates the length and quality of sleep”, says Dr. Manoj K. Ahuja, Sukhda Hospital. You can also add a teaspoon (or two) of honey to a cup of chamomile tea, if you’d prefer.

2. Treats wounds and Burns

Honey is made up of mostly glucose and fructose that absorb water if applied on wounds. It helps promote healing, making it a natural first aid cure for wounds, burns and cuts. Honey’s antiseptic properties inhibit the growth of certain bacteria and help keep external wounds free from infection. It helps reduce swelling, pain and even scarring as it works as an anti-inflammatory as well. A 2005 study published in the British Journal of Surgery showed remarkable improvement after applying honey to the affected areas.

3. Cures Hangover

It’s a familiar feeling… a heavy head, raging thirst, waves of nausea, over sensitivity to light and noise? Yes, it’s the dreaded hangover! Fret not, honey is here to rescue you. Just a few tablespoons of honey will help speed up your body’s metabolism and help you combat that hangover, since fructose helps speed up the oxidation of alcohol by the liver. The NYU Langone Medical Center reveals that taking honey orally can, “increase the body’s ability to metabolize alcohol, thereby limiting intoxication and more rapidly reducing alcohol blood levels.”

4. Weight loss

Honey is a fantastic moisturizer and works wonders on patches of dry skin. You can use it to soften up your knees and elbows, even chapped lips. During the cold winter months, just rub some honey onto your face and wash off after 30 minutes. You can even create a moisturizing scrub – all you need to do is add some sugar and voila! It works as a natural exfoliator. Give your skin the benefit of honey’s powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and ultra-moisturizing properties.
6.Treats Dandruff
According to a 2001 study published in the European Journal of Medical Research, honey can bring temporary relief to the scalp by targeting dandruff. The study found that applying honey diluted with 10 percent warm water to problem areas and leaving it on for three hours before rinsing, led to itch relief and no scaling within a week. Skin lesions healed within two weeks and patients even showed an improvement in hair loss.
7. Good for silky hairs
Honey acts as a natural agent for moisturizing hair and cleansing the scalp, leaving you with silk smoothy hairs without stripping away any natural oils. Add a teaspoonful of honey to your usual shampoo or mix with olive oil for a deep conditioning treatment for 20 minutes, before washing your hair with shampoo.
Hope these benefits of Honey will be beneficial to you.

Notable Ghanaians Declare Feb. 8 ‘No Calls Day’ To Protest SIM Card Re-Registration

Notable Ghanaians Declare Feb. 8 ‘No Calls Day’ To Protest SIM Card Re-Registration
A group of notable Ghanaian personalities who have identified themselves as Concerned Mobile Network Subscribers have served notice of boycotting the ongoing SIM card re-registration exercise.

According to them, they are ready to risk losing their SIM cards; hence, have set aside Tuesday, February 8, to embark on a nationwide protest dubbed ‘No Calls Day’.

They added, “any attempt to impose this [SIM card re-registration] on subscribers or block their lines would amount to an infringement on their property rights.”

“On that day, we call on all Ghanaians not to make or receive phone calls as a way of registering our disquiet about the circus surrounding the SIM card re-registration exercise,” they announced in a release dated January 13, 2022.

The group includes a former Kumbungu Member of Parliament, Ras Mubarak; Dean of UG’s School of Law, Prof. Raymond Atuguba; President and Vice President of IMANI-Africa – Franklin Cudjoe and Kofi Bentil; Private Legal Practitioner, Samson Lardi Anyenini, and Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni.

“The ‘No Calls Day’ boycott on 8th February would be the first in a series of national boycotts to protest the current inhumane process of re-registration of SIM cards.”

“There is no law in Ghana that requires Ghanaian mobile network subscribers to “re-register” their SIM cards,” they argued.

Below are their demands:

  • The National Communication Authority (NCA) should immediately withdraw its directive for mobile network customers to re-register their SIM cards by 31st March 2022.
  • When the appropriate legal framework is in place, a re-registration exercise can be done without having subscribers spend productive hours and several days in long queues in the midst of a ravaging Covid-19 pandemic.
  • There’s understandably a need to eliminate crime. But the fight against criminals must be within the law.
  • We therefore demand that the NCA and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) must come up with a better and innovative way of re-registering the SIM cards by first amending existing law; and secondly to do so without the current inhumane re-registration process we are witnessing.

They stressed that “if the NCA and the MNOs fail to heed these demands, we shall, starting Tuesday, 8th February, 2022, begin the first of a series of planned boycotts until the rights of customers to be treated with dignity, are respected.”

Other members who signed the release are Kofi Kakraba Pratt, Dr. Kwesi Owusu, James Afedo, Selorm Branttie, Francis Kofi Korankye-Sakyi, Akyaaba Addai-Sebo, Kwame Mfodwo and Michael Ofori-Akuffo.

The IES in a statement said “on the back of the 7.42% increase in the price of Brent crude, the 9.46% increase in the price of gasoline, the 8.52% increase in gas oil price and the 0.3% depreciation of the local currency against the US dollar; the Institute for Energy Security (IES) informs consumers to remain expectant of a further increase in fuel prices at the pumps, between 30 pesewas to 40 pesewas per litre.

On January 3, 2022, the Chamber of Petroleum Consumers-Ghana (COPEC-Ghana) also predicted an increase in fuel prices in the next few days.

COPEC said the prices of petrol and diesel are expected to go up by 3.7% and 2.5% respectively.

It said ex-pump prices of petrol and diesel are expected to increase by 24 pesewas and 17 pesewas respectively.

In a statement on Monday, January 3, 2022, COPEC said “The average surge for both products in nominal terms is 20 pesewas representing 3.1%. Some Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) could increase their prices less than the 20 pesewas increase due to competition.”
