Health Influencer Says Honey Should Not Be Added To Hot Tea

It is not advisable to add honey to boiling hot tea, a leading medic has warned.

Dr Jimmy Mohammed, a popular French physician, underlined the health benefits of honey in a recent RTL broadcast.

The expert, who has more than 1.3 million followers on Instagram, said: “Honey is sugar. It sparks salivation. Any inflammation in our throat and bronchial tube can be reduced this way.”

However, Dr Mohammed warned: “All of the honey’s elements are destroyed if it’s added to hot tea due to the high temperature.”

He suggested: “Let your tea cool down, then add a spoonful of honey.”

Dr Mohammed also said that honey is a potential ingredient for bathing oils and skin mask concoctions.

Speaking about the Illustrious Queen of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt, he explained: “It is an established fact that even Cleopatra had bee honey to be poured into her skin beauty baths.”

The Mayo Clinic, an American health research centre, cited studies suggesting that honey could feature antidepressant, anticonvulsant and anti-anxiety benefits.

The renowned institute also said that certain types of honey “can act as a reliable cough suppressant for some people with upper respiratory infections and acute nighttime cough.”

Meanwhile, the owners of Australian Bee Products, an apiary in Queensland, Australia, underlined that raw honey contains calcium, magnesium, and zinc.
