Benefits of Spicy Honey for Cold and Flu Season

How sweet and spicy can get you through the flu.

Let's talk about Spicy Pepper Honey

Fool's Gold Sweet and Spicy Red Pepper Honey

Honey has long been known as a natural remedy due to it containing minerals, enzymes, probiotics and antioxidants that combine to boost your immune system while providing other important health benefits. This sweet treat also has a natural analgesic effect. Spicy honey has increased in popularity lately, especially on social media channels like Tik Tok, where it is often referred to as "swicy", a health boosting combination of spicy and sweet. So what is spicy honey? It's simply pure, raw honey combined with spicy red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper powder. Fool's Gold Spicy Pepper Honey is infused with our special blend of hot peppers for an extra kick and all the benefits of capsaicin. 

Capsaicin is what gives peppers their fiery heat but it also provides many health benefits as well. It's a natural antioxidant as well as having antiviral and antibacterial properties. Combining capsaicin with honey doubles the impact. Add Spicy Pepper Honey to your favorite tea or a mug of hot water to sip while you're sick. You can alleviate a persistent sore throat with moisturizing honey that will also reduce inflammation. This powerful blend can help clear up nasal congestion and calm a persistent cough. 

Relieve cold and flu symptoms naturally with spicy honey and tea

When you add our spicy pepper infused honey to hot green tea you're tripling your antioxidant intake. Green tea has been consumed for health benefits for centuries and is known to also help manage blood sugar, improve cognitive functioning and lower the risk of some cancers when consumed regularly. 

If tea doesn't make it onto your list of favorite flavors, feel free to drizzle your spicy honey into an oat milk latte or a simple broth soup. There's plenty of ways to enjoy this zesty treat even when you're not under the weather.

If you're not a fan of spicy food and drinks you may be wondering if there's an alternative that can give you some relief from those brutal cold or flu symptoms. Our Ginger Honey improves immunity while also aiding with nausea and upset stomach. Ginger also has anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce pain including from a sore throat.

Whatever your flavor preferences might be, you can always enjoy the benefits of pure, natural honey.
