In brief: Buckwheat honey

Actually studied not too long ago, buckwheat honey when compared to typical over the counter (otc) cough medicine was found to be as good, if not better than these cough syrups.
As always, infants under one year of age should not be given honey due to spores sometimes found within honey that could potentially cause botulism.
