Honey, the divine food

By Carolin 

is sweet, sticky and often yellowish. In general a light honey has a milder taste that a dark honey. Honey consists of 16-20% water , 75-79 % carbohydrates, proteins, minerals, vitamins (especially B vitamin complex) and several antibiotics. Honey is light and heat sensitive and looses its antibiotic properties if it is heated above 100 F (38ºC). Honey increases the serotonin level which makes it easier to relax and fall asleep.
Use the benefits of honey to:

  • Get fast energy
  • Lower infection
  • Help remove toxins from the body
  • Strengthen you immune system
  • Heal and avoid infection in cuts and burns
  • Get rid of fungus
  • As sleeping aid
  • Remove sugar cravings
  • Ease coughing and sore throat

Make sure the honey you buy is a natural product that has not been heated. Don’t use it in hot drinks.
A daily bath with honey and balm helps to improve blood circulation.

    Both my father and grandfather were beekeepers, so I grew up with honey. Peanut butter and honey sandwiches were a staple. As was honey on toast, in coffee, and substituted for sugar whenever possible.

    Natural honey can be hard to find. Most of what is found in the stores have been pasteurized. If it is liquid, it is crap. Honey tends to be solid at room temperature. It softens easily and buying a container of solid honey has all the above mentioned health benefits.

    There are as many types of honeys as there are flowers. I grew up with sunflower, alfalfa, clover, buckwheat, and rape seed (canola) honeys. My favorites being sunflower and rape seed.

    If you really want to enjoy the true benefits of raw honey, Find a beekeeper and buy directly from them. You will have the very best from the source, and avoid the middle man markups from the retailers.
