Health Benefits:

Honey is a natural antiseptic (substance inhibiting the growth and reproduction of microorganisms) as well as antioxidant (substance in food that helps to protect cells against damage from free radicals). Honey has a healthy Glycemic Index, meaning that sugars are gradually absorbed into the bloodstream at a healthy and reasonable rate.

Honey has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy to numerous ailments including diseases and infections from eye conjunctivitis to athletes foot. It is a wonderful aide to treating and healing digestive problems such as indigestion, diarrhea, stomach ulcers, and gastroenteritis.

Honey is a product that can be used internally as well as externally to heal tissue damage, decrease inflammation, and heal scarring. Honey is also a wonderful conditioner for soft, smooth skin and hair.

Allergies and Honey:

Allergies are caused by a continuous overexposure to allergens.  Over 36 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies with symptoms of headaches, runny nose, and itchy eyes.  Over the counter medications can sometimes provide relief from these symptoms, but with the price of side effects such as drowsiness and dryness. 

One of the easiest and most effect ways to reduce your allergy symptoms is to regularly ingest raw honey that is local to your area.  This is called immunotherapy. By ingesting honey, which contains pollen from your community, your body creates an immune system response which produces antibodies designated to fight off the foreign invaders. Introducing local pollen into your body in small amounts by eating raw B's Honey should make your body accustomed to their presence and decrease the chance an immune system response, like the release of histamine (causing allergy symptoms), will occur.


Nutrition Facts:

 Honey is a naturally fat free, cholesterol free, and sodium free food.  At 1 tbsp equal to 64 calories, honey is a nutritionally dense food containing minerals, vitamins, and carbohydrates.  Because it is intensely sweeter than sugar, a little goes a long way compared to table sugar. 

Table sugar is made up of little more than empty calories, so next time you plan on enjoying a comforting cup of tea, pour in a bit of raw honey as opposed to table sugar; it takes a lot less honey to sweeten that tea than sugar and packs in a whopping array of nutritional value and healthy benefits.

Honey has a healthy Glycemic Index, which is a measure of how sugar is absorbed into the blood stream as compared to white bread.  Honey has shown to be absorbed into the bloodstream at a gradual rate, which is ideal for maintaining energy.

Honey is a source of Carbohydrates containing:
  • 80% natural sugar
  • 18% water (the lower the water content, the better the quality of honey)
  • 2% minerals, vitamins, pollen, and protein
Vitamins in Honey:  B6, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, panthenic acid, and 22 amino acids
Minerals in Honey:  calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphate, potassium, sodium, and zinc

 Natural honey contains minerals and vitamins which help the metabolizing of undesirable cholesterol and fatty acid in the tissues and organs in the body, which prevents obesity and generally promotes optimal health.
