Health Benefits of Honey
Wednesday Wisdom Series Continues..
hellohealing uses local organic Honey in our Jamu Tonic.
Since ancient times, honey has been used as both a food and a medicine.
Honey is particularly healthy when used instead of refined sugar. Honey contains many important antioxidants which can reduce risk of heart attacks, strokes and some types of cancer while improving cholesterol and lowering blood pressure.
Topical honey treatment has been used to heal wounds and burns since ancient Egypt and is still a common treatment today.
Honey is also considered a prebiotic food, which means that it feeds the good bacteria that live in the stomach. Meanwhile, unlike refined sugars, honey doesn't ferment inside the digestive system, which can aggravate the digestive tract.
