Happy Honey Month!
Happy Honey Month! Thanks bees for working so hard! It’s delicious for being something with such a disgusting beginning. I mean it marinates with larvae in the hive…or something like that. To celebrate this day I ate a peanut butter and honey sandwich. It was delicious and helped strengthen my immunity.
Here are some benefits to eating honey:
Honey has high levels of monosaccharides, fructose and glucose, containing about 70 to 80 percent sugar, which gives it its sweet taste – minerals and water make up the rest of its composition.
The health benefits of consuming honey date back to Greek, Roman, Vedic, and Islamic texts. The healing qualities of honey were referred to by philosophers and scientists all the way back to ancient times, such as Aristotle (384 – 322 BC) and Aristoxenus (320 BC).
Honey possesses powerful antiseptic and antibacterial properties. In modern science we have managed to find useful applications of honey in chronic wound management.
It can be used to heal topical wounds and burns, clear seasonal allergies, help rehydrate, and a few other things found in this article.
