Honey, please bring me some honey!
20 June, 2013
Honey has a long history of human consumption, and is used in various foods as a sweetener and for flavouring. Honey gets its sweetness from the monosaccharide (simplest form of sugar that are usually colourless, water-soluble, crystalline solids) fructose and glucose, and has the same relative sweetness as the granulated sugar. Honey contains flavanoids (group of oxygen containing aromatic antioxidant compounds that includes many common pigments) and antioxidants (molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules), which help reduce the
risk of certain forms of cancer and heart disease.
The honey treatment may help disorders such as ulcers and bacterial gastroenteritis (Inflammation of gastrointestinal tract involving stomach and the small, resulting in diarrhoea, vomiting, and abdominal pain and cramping). Honey helps with cough, especially the buckwheat honey. Organic honey is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes (catalysts, greatly accelerating rate and specificity of metabolic reactions, from the digestion of food to the synthesis of DNA) which protect the body from bacteria and boost the immune system. Drinking warm water with lemon and honey on an empty stomach makes important component of every detox (Detoxification, the process, real or perceived, of removing toxins from the body) program.
Raw Honey! Raw honey is honey that has not been heated, pasteurized or processed in any way. Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health. It is a powerful antioxidant, eliminates allergies, and strengthens the immune system. It can also alleviate skin burn or other damages by placing a honey poultice over the affected area.
Honey comes in a range of colours including white, amber, red, brown and black.
Did you know that honey bees must visit two million flowers to make one pound of honey. This fact should be just about enough information to digest in order for us to conceive that honey is a product which results from exceptionally hard labour. There must be something serious about it! Never ever ignore its power if you want to live longer and better!
