Honey isn’t just for Winnie the Pooh – it’s something you should add to your diet and eat on a regular basis. Raw honey is packed with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and amino acids including vitamin b6, niacin, zinc, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, just to name a few.
Honey can also be used as natural remedy for allergies and an alternative to cough syrup. It can also provide you with natural energy and promote a healthy sleep schedule. Eating honey can help lower blood pressure, can lower triglycerides, can help improve cholesterol and promote heart health.
Honey has many external health benefits as well and can be used to help heal burns and wounds. Honey can also be used as a DIY at-home face mask to help fight redness, irritation, acne, dry skin, scars and sun damage.
While honey is a power-house food, it should be consumed in moderation because it does contain sugar. You only need about one tablespoon per day. You can add honey to your yogurt, oatmeal or smoothie for breakfast to start your day with a nice healthy boost. Honey also goes great with many snacks like bananas, peanut butter sandwiches and granola. You can also use it when you cook – honey pairs especially well with Asian dishes.
