Usually when you have a cold, you may be advised close to 10 times a day to drink plenty of water. Another thing is to have some tea with honey to soothe your throat. Well, this home remedy may be all you need to cure your common cold. 

The British Medical Journal (BMJ) Evidence Based Medicine published a new research that proposes that some tea with honey is more effective than any medicine you can buy over the counter. 

The BMJ claims that honey is a frequently used remedy by patients, easy to use, and causes barely any harm at all to consumers. They reviewed 14 different patients and had them compare the effects of honey over any other antibiotic or drug. Some of the studies showed that the people who consumed honey had fewer days of lasting effects, and overall the conclusion was that the bee-product was more effective in general.
