I love honey! I eat it every day and not just because it taste good but because it is very healthy too!
I put it in my coffee, hot tea and smoothies. I put in on my peanut butter sandwiches, toast, and yogurt. I like it so much that sometimes, if I get a sweet tooth in the middle of the day or late at night, I will just eat a spoon full of plain honey. My kid love it too! It help to curve their ever growing hunger for sugar as well.
Here are just a few Health benefits of Honey that you may or may not already know:
Immunity System Builder
Good for Cuts and Burns
May help lower cholesterol.
Can help with allergies (eat local honey)
May help with ulcers.
Honey Combined with cinnamon, lemon juice, and warm water can help with weight loss.
Contains B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C... Magnesium, potassium, calcium, sulphur, iron and phosphate.
It has also been noted to help improve athletic performance.
Honey facilitates in maintaining blood sugar levels, muscle recuperation and glycogen restoration after a workout.
In conclusion, I vote to change the lyrics to the very popular Mary Poppins song to "a spoon full of honey helps you keep the medicine away, the medicine away. the medicine away." Any takers on that or do you think Disney and the Pharmaceutical companies might have some objection to that?
