Lose Weight with Raw Honey
Lose Weight and Get Allergy Relief
Raw honey is great for allergy relief and can help you lose weight. You've probably been hearing about some of the other benefits of local honey as well. It's one of the best sellers in the specialty produce shop where I work. We're talking about RAW honey here, not the pasteurized stuff that has had all the good enzymes zapped out of it.
Raw honey refers to pure, unfiltered, unheated honey. It is packed with antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients. Raw honey contains propolis, which is the resin bees use to sterilize and seal up their hives. Propolis contains natural antibiotic and antiseptic properties.
Bee pollen is a great superfood. Raw honey contains bee pollen.
Raw Honey Contains:
Local, raw honey can be found at farmer's markets, small local specialty stores and anywhere farmers and growers sell their goods. Do not mistake the generic honey you see in big box stores for local honey. You need to know where the honey is from. Check the bottle so you know exactly where the honey was made. The so-called honey at most big box stores is actually imported from China, Argentina, India, Bulgaria and Canada. Non-local honey will not give you the immunity boost that local honey does.
Want to start feeling better today? Get some local honey, mix in some cinnamon and drink to your improved health.
I also recommend Golden Delight Honey, LLC in Lancaster County, SC off Highway 75. They have a variety of handmade milled soap including Strawberry Soap, Milk and Honey Soap, Honey-Wheat Germ Soap, Peppermint Soap and Honey Soap. Products can be purchased through their website and the site is packed with useful information about bees, local honey and even how to contact Golden Delight Honey, LLC to have their bees come pollinate your farm or garden.

Local Honey For Allergy Relief
Honey contains small amounts of pollen. By taking a teaspoon of honey twice a day, you are introducing pollen spores into your body in small amounts. That is why honey is often taken to relieve seasonal allergies. Unlike over the counter allergy medications, there are no side effects when you consume local honey. Take a teaspoon of honey twice a day to help fight allergies. My favorite way to take the honey is to mix with a generous sprinkling of cinnamon and microwave this mixture for 14 seconds. Then drink it like tea.
Sweet, Sweet Honey
Local honey can also be used as a cough suppressant when taken before bed, an energizer to give you a boost for your workout, a digestion aid to help treat ulcers and diarrhea, and even to prevent colon cancer. Honey is even supposed to help with short term weight loss. How could a simple, natural source of sugar do all that? I admit that preventing colon cancer sounds a bit over-the-top but the claim is very logical. Raw honey (remember...honey that has not been pasteurized) contains propolis. Propolis is what bees use to seal their hive off from invaders and harmful substances. It's like caulking for bees. Propolis are chemicals which fight inflammation in the body. Propolis plus other substances (with names too long to remember) react with the body to prevent enzymes from growing tumors that lead to colon cancer.
What is Tupelo Honey?
Tupelo honey is honey made from bees pollinating the rare flower of the Tupelo which blooms just a short time each year. The blossoming period starts around the 20th of April and lasts about three weeks.
