Honey is the best herbs carrier for the treatment of excess Kapha, good for the respiratory system and is included in many ayurvedic medicinal jams.
Fresh honey that is still rather liquid does not reduce Kapha very much and is also laxative. Old honey improves assimilation in the intestines and scrapes fat tissue strongly.
