H is for Honey

by Leisa on October 18, 2008

Honey has earned a bit of a bad rap over the years as being just as bad for us as “pure sugar”.  But all is not as it seems in the world of honey….

There is quite a lot of difference between the honey you find on the supermarket store shelf and pure “Raw Honey” that you can find from the local beekeeper.  The supermarket variety has been heated upon extraction, filtered and pasteurised, which kills all the vital enzymes that help to make it such a powerful healing aid for the body.

The supermarket kind is “junk food” as is just about everything else on the shelves.  Once humans have altered honey from the state it is found in nature, it is denatured and is nowhere near as healthful as it is in its original state.

Pure, raw, unfiltered, cold extracted honey is a glorious Superfood. Full of minerals, antioxidants, vitamins and potent enzymes, it makes for an essential addition to a raw food pantry – unless of course you are a true vegan.

Eating locally produced honey daily and other superfood bee products such as honeycomb, bee pollen, propolis or royal jelly, can halt seasonal allergies caused by pollens and eliminate sneezing, itching and hayfever.  Raw honey also supports and heals the digestive system, cleanses the body of toxins and repairs wounds.

A tablespoon or two daily can be of great benefit in any number of health conditions, and it can be incorporated into all sorts of raw dessert recipes, or taken straight from the jar.

Sweet :-)

Isn’t honey and cinnamon together very good for us

Hi Suzanne,
Honey and cinnamon is a combination that has been used together for a very long time, and I always have a lot of respect for ancient traditions in this regards. Cinnamon is very good for regulating blood sugar levels, so it may balance the natural sugars in the honey.
