Re: Health Benefits of Honey
"Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections. Raw honey's benefits don't stop there. Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels, relieve pain, calm nerves, and it has been used to treat ulcers. Raw honey is also an expectorant and anti-inflammatory and has been known to effectively treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma." Quotes like this found splashed all over the internet do nothing more than to promote erroneous and misleading information regarding the health benefits of honey. Our company produces, and sells some of the best premium grade raw honey available, but the last thing I try to do is to promote it as some type of wonder food if consumed. Honey is SUGAR, and should be consumed moderately in a well balanced diet. Just because it comes from our most beneficial insect, doesn't necessarily make it some kind of miracle food. Represent it for what it is.
