Honey benefits

Honey is a natural remedy and a powerful immune system booster. 
It's antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties can help improve digestive system and help you stay healthy. Honey also offers a unique combination of nutritional benefits.
In addition to being a concentrated energy source, honey contains a plenty of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids. Honey is an instant energy-building food.

If you are feeling low and tired in the morning, instead of reaching out for a can of carbonated energy drink, try honey. Spread it on toast or replace the sugar in your tea with honey for energy. 

My favorite is honey with hot water. Mix a spoonful of honey and lemon juice from half a lemon into a cup of warm water and drink it. Honey with hot water does have some benefits. Whenever I have a sore throat, I drink it and it instantly soothes my throat.
Remember not to put honey in very hot water, because it destroys all it nutritions. Though honey has more calories than sugar, honey when consumed with warm water helps in digesting the fat stored in your body. So, it is good for weight loss.

Manuka honey has a reputation as a healing honey.
Because it comes from bees that have been busy pollinating the Manuka trees that grow almost exclusively in the East Cape region of New Zealand, it has rarity value. Manuka honey is expensive, but most people who've used it say it's worth the money.  
Why not give it a go?

  8. I have heard lots of positive feedbacks about honey including yours and now it really caught my attention. I want to try it on my skin. I have heard that honey is a good moisturizer. I usually have dried out skin so I want to moisturize my skin with an all natural ingredient and not using any kind of product that I don't know if it is really safe. I will definitely give it a try.
