Honey - ancient, golden wonder

Sunday, October 29, 2017

HONEY is the world's oldest natural unprocessed sweetener. It's a power bank of health benefits and a key to health and wealth. If you're not taking full advantage of the nutritional and medicinal properties of honey, it's time to begin because honey is a remarkable healing agent for all sorts of ailments.

A quick search on its health benefits shows it contains flavonoids, antioxidants which help reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease as well as reduce ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders. Honey is known for its anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties for healing since ancient times. The Greeks, Romans, and Egyptians documented the healing properties of honey as early as Aristotle's mention of it in 384 BC. Even King Solomon said in the Bible: "My son, eat thou honey, for it is good."

Even doctors apply honey on wounds to speed up healing and diabetics use honey as their sugar replacement...
