Interesting facts about honey:
Honey is considered one of the oldest natural remedies in the world. It is healthy and is even said to have an anti-inflammatory effect. For us, this is a good reason to add a new honey to our portfolio, but we'll get to our new cooperation later.
Is honey really as healthy as it is always claimed?
One thing in advance: honey is a sweetener and there can be no talk of low-calorie here. So if you want to watch the slim line, excessive consumption of honey is not exactly conducive. But of course there is also good news about honey. Otherwise we would not include it in our online store. Among other things, honey contains important antioxidants, including phenols, enzymes, plant substances such as flavonoids and organic acids. This combination is very beneficial in reducing the risk of heart attacks, strokes and various cancers, as well as strengthening the eyesight. These antioxidants are also capable of lowering blood pressure, thus having a doubly positive effect on your heart health. The heart is also still protected from oxidative stress.
There is also good news for diabetics, because honey can lower the "bad" LDL cholesterol and thus have a positive effect on your values. For wounds, beekeepers have always relied on the miraculous powers of honey. In fact, it has been shown in various experiments and even scientific studies that honey showed a much higher healing power than various antibiotics after surgery and in other wounds. Even severe inflammations, which in the worst case could have led to amputation, could heal after treatment with honey. This effect is based on the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Surely you also know the fifth application of honey - for coughs. Here it strengthens the immune system and fights the triggering viruses. Mix honey into your tea, but make sure that the drink has cooled down a bit beforehand. Because from a temperature of 40 degrees, the healing enzymes break down. With sore throat and honey a clear improvement of the symptoms could be observed. Caution is required here only with children under 12 months, because these should take generally still no honey to itself. The substances contained are harmless for adults. In babies, however, they can cause a dangerous form of food poisoning.
