More Than Nature's Candy
Four Things You Didn’t Know Honey Is Perfect For
We all know honey is the perfect companion to a warm cup of tea to ensure the calmest of vibes or to soothe the sorest of throats but did you know that there are TONS of other ways you could use your favorite natural sweetener?
Protecting Your Body- Some types of raw honey contain as many antioxidants as fruits and vegetables as they are crucial for helping to protect your body from cell damage due to free radicals. Free radicals can contribute to aging prematurely, the development of chronic diseases and heart disease.
Energy Booster- Drop the Red Bull and no one gets hurt! Energy drinks contain insane amounts of sugar and other harmful ingredients but because we live in a society where we’re always on the go, we can always benefit from an energy boost. Next time you’re running low on steam, opt for some honey water as the glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate sugar boost with no crash later on. Next time you head to the gym or feel like taking a nap at your desk, spread honey on your toast, add a few drops to your water for a natural surge of energy.
Say Goodbye to Scars from Cuts + Burns- Accidents happen and sometimes there’s nothing worse than a scar from a cut or burn so next time, spread a little honey on it! For thousands of years, honey has been used as a natural remedy for healing burns and cuts quickly. Manuka honey is best for this.
Insomnia- Next time you encounter a restless night, warm some milk and add a little honey to it as nature’s sweetest liquid has calming properties known for educing sleep.
