WOW – Raw Organic Honey – DELICIOUS & the Health Benefits are Simply AMAZING
I have a few friends who take raw organic honey that’s locally sourced all year round and they swear it helps tremendously with their allergies. So, I got all curious because I’ve heard that RAW honey is VERY different than regular supermarket brands. Quite simply, the raw kind is removed by a beekeeper directly from the honeycomb and it contains the bee pollen which is so good for you. Regular honey is pasteurized which reduces nutrients and antioxidants and can contain additives such as high fructose corn syrup.
It seems that while pasteurizing the honey helps it to look better, it removes some really good stuff like the pollen which is anti -inflammatory and has antioxidants, plus important vitamins and minerals. The pollen also has pain relieving properties and antibacterial effects. Some studies have even suggested there are anti-cancer effects derived from the antioxidants in the organic goodness.
Then there’s the phytonutrients (yeah, a big word right there), that are responsible for the antibacterial properties as well as the immune boosting benefits. It has also been used for a long time to heal burns and wounds, help with digestive issues, and sooth a sore throat along with hot tea and lemon. It also contains antioxidant properties that are linked to lowering blood pressure.
And while I discovered all of this mind-blowing goodness about raw honey, I found out that it also helps to reduce cholesterol in your body. A few studies have shown that it reduces your bad cholesterol (LDL) while actually raining your good cholesterol (HDL). Just wow. And when used to replace sugar in your diet, studies have shown it to reduce triglyceride level as well. Just amazing.
This wickedly tasty bee -made goodness is not only awesome in tea, on cereal and muffins, but the health benefits are incredibly promising, and note, it is most definitely healthier than consuming raw sugar. I say go for it!
