Have you ever tasted real honey? Honey isn’t just a sweetener for your tea. Raw honey is actually the concentrated nectar of flowers that comes straight from the extractor. It is the only pure, unheated, unpasteurized, unprocessed form of honey.
Antioxidant & Antibacterial
Honey naturally contains antioxidants, enzymes, minerals, amino acids and a wide array of vitamins; the most important being Hydrogen Peroxide (H202). The glucose oxidase enzyme, which is present in raw honey, forms H202. It has both antioxidant and antibacterial properties that inhibit bacteria growth. That being said, honey is used topically to heal wounds, burns, cataracts, skin ulcers, sores and scrapes.
Before (and during) allergy season is in full bloom, take a few teaspoons of local, raw honey every day to prevent your allergy symptoms. The local honey contains triggers, such as small amounts of the specific pollens an individual may be allergic to, for treating allergy symptoms.
Diabetes & Gentle on Blood Sugar
Despite raw honey being a significant source of sugar, it is a monosaccharide, composed of two simple sugars: glucose and fructose. It cannot be broken down further, therefore they are gradually absorbed into the bloodstream without irritating the digestive system. Studies have shown that raw honey actually aids in insulation regulation due to its lower glycemic index.
Anabolism for Athletes
Look no further for a natural source of energy. Honey rejuvenates the body, builds strong muscles, stimulates nerves, and sharpens the mind. Athletes prefer honey due to its anabolic state. It releases steadily and is a good sustainable source of energy. It aids in muscle recuperation, glycogen return and work-out recovery.
Naturally Burn Fat
A teaspoon of raw honey before bed fuels the liver, and speeds up the fat-burning metabolism of the body. Honey contains a 1:1 ratio of fructose to glucose, making it the most optimal food to fuel the body during sleep. It balances blood sugar levels, allowing the recovery hormones focus on burning fat.
Common Cold
Honey is considered to be a more effective and safer alternative to naturally treat coughs and sooth sore throats as opposed to over-the-counter medicines.
No Expiration Date
The low water content and pH of 3-4, raw honey is stable and can last for centuries when stored correctly.
Whether you spread it on your toast, drink it with your tea, or apply it to burns, raw honey is essential to store in both your pantry and medicine cabinet.
