If you never tasted raw honey, stop what you are doing and get some... Seriously! It is absolutely delicious! There are so many health benefits in raw honey. Have I also mentioned how good it is?
Common store bought honey is translucent, have you ever wondered why?
"Pasteurized foods go through a process of exposure to heat to kill any microorganisms in the product. Honey is pasteurized at 145 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. You will usually find pasteurized honey in stores, but you can find unpasteurized honey at farmer's markets or farms."
Standard honey is pasteurized. It even kills most of the vitamins and much of the nutritional value in the honey! Some honey may appear non-translucent BUT still be pasteurized so make sure you read labels! They do this by mixing regular liquid honey and honey crystals so it gives it a cream texture instead of the drippy texture. Raw honey is also not as sticky, but mind you, it still is!
Benefits of Raw Honey:
One of the major benefits of raw honey is that it's nature's own multivitamin. Vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and Vitamin C are found in raw honey. It also contains minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, and phosphate.
Raw honey has been used to treat viral and bacterial infections in the body and even help treat the common cold!
It can treat acne in days! No joke! Apply raw honey to your face every night (yes its sticky!) and rinse in the morning. For a skin glow, add some to your face wash, or use it by itself. You can mix in some sea salt and make a nice facial scrub for pores.
When raw honey is combined with ginger root it creates a cure/medicine to food poisoning! Even the deadliest forms! Ginger root tea with a spoon or two of honey will help your digestive track, relieve nausea and calm nerves.
It will kill your sweet tooth in minutes! Simply eat a spoon of it and BAM! No more sugar cravings!
And it does so much more! (See side bar)
