We have already shown you the healthy and tasty Golden Milk in our blog. This time we would like to show you – suitable for the cold season – with the “Golden Honey” yet another popular and effective remedy from Ayurveda, with which you can strengthen your immune system.

What is Golden Honey and how does the Ayurvedic remedy work?

What may sound mysterious at first glance, is relatively simple at second glance: Golden Honey is “nothing more” than turmeric and honey. The combination of these two ingredients is supposed to be THE remedy par excellence against colds. In addition, golden honey is considered the strongest antibiotic that nature has to offer.



But why is this so? Let’s take a closer look at the positive effects of the two ingredients. Turmeric is known mainly from oriental and Asian cuisine. The active ingredient “curcumin” has numerous health-promoting properties. Especially due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect, curcumin is often listed as an ingredient in many medications. Among other things, it helps with joint problems, pain, cholesterol or high blood pressure. Turmeric and the curcumin it contains can also aid recovery from intestinal problems and respiratory diseases.



The second ingredient in Golden Honey is honey. This is considered the best natural antibiotic and antiseptic. Natural, cold-spun and untreated honey, as obtained from beekeepers or organic, also has immune-boosting, laxative, diuretic and bactericidal properties. Thus the honey supports among other things with:

  • strengthening the immune system
  • with cold symptoms
  • wound healing
  • the maintenance of a healthy intestinal flora
  • digestion
  • sore throat

How Golden Honey is made and used

The production of Golden Honey is very simple:

  • 100 grams of cold extracted and natural honey.
  • 1-2 tablespoons of turmeric in powder form
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper


Stir the mixture until the powder is completely dissolved in the honey. Should you wonder why the pepper is in the mixture: the pepper increases the anti-inflammatory effect of turmeric, as the ingredient piperine acts as a “bioenhancer”. This means that our body can better absorb the turmeric.

For cold symptoms, you should take Golden Honey as follows:

  • On the first day, put half a teaspoon of Golden Honey on your tongue every two hours and let it slowly melt in your mouth.
  • On the second day, take the same amount of Golden Honey, but only every three hours.
  • On the third day, take half a teaspoon three times a day.
