The Benefits of Honey

In ancient times Honey was thought to be a gift from God. It was used all over the world for healing multitudes of illnesses and ailments. In Ancient Egypt, honey was used internally and externally in surgical dressings for burns, ulcers, and preeminently for weakness and inflammation of the eyes. In China, Honey was used as a component of diets and medicines. In the Bible and many other sacred books, all speak of honey as food, beverage, and medicine and small pox patients were often anointed with it.  Even Mohammad referred to honey as “a remedy for all diseases”.

Raw, organic, unfiltered honey is the most beneficial.

Nowadays, this golden elixir is usually used as a food source. Because of it’s sweetness, honey is a great replacement for sugar and artificial sweeteners. This is especially beneficial for people who suffer from pre or type 2 diabetes, as it is important that they restrict their sugar intake. Recent studies have shown that, if eaten on a regular basis, Honey can even help lower blood sugar levels! It contains a concentrate of nearly all known nutrients needed for our bodies including multiple vitamins and minerals such as Vitamins B1, B6, B12, C, E, and Biotin, Chormium, Maganes – diabetics usually have half of what is actually needed, Magnesium – often deficient in diabetics, Vanadium which helps process insulin, and Potassium which helps improve insulin sensitivity. It is a potent healer that can regenerate and rejuvenate the body! It can be used in multiple ways and to aid healing of multiple ailments including digestive complications, upset stomach, sore throat, and even allergies – one tablespoon a day of raw, unfiltered, local honey can help curb spring allergies!  Can you say Super Food?

And if that’s not enough to convince you of honey’s importance in our lives take a look behind the scenes at the little critters that give us this “miracle syrup”: Bees. Bees supply us with about 1/3 of our food supply by pollinating our crops.

Now keep in mind, while we’re going off telling you all these wonderful things honey can do, we are talking about pure, unfiltered, unprocessed honey. Honey from stores is considered “dead” honey, it’s filtered, and processed and therefore has been stripped of its nutritional value. Look for organic UNFILTERED honey!

  1. Thank you very much for this post. It is also important to note that unfiltered honey can sometimes crystallize but this is a good and natural thing, If your honey crystallizes it means it is real honey!
