Honey

Bees produce honey by mixing nectar, which is a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with bee enzymes.

Honey is a highly concentrated source of many essential nutrients, including large amounts of carbohydrates (sugars), some minerals, B-complex vitamins, and vitamins C, D, and E.

Honey is used to promote energy and healing.

It’s been shown to be an effective treatment for relieving symptoms of coughing from an upper respiratory tract infection in people 2-18 years of age.

The FDA and leading medical groups have called the effectiveness of most cold and flu preparations into question.

Honey offers a natural and effective alternative.

It’s a natural antiseptic and makes a good salve for burns and wounds.

Honey is also used for sweetening foods and beverages.

It varies somewhat in color and taste depending on the origin of the flower and nectar, but in general it’s approximately twice as sweet as sugar, so not as much is needed for sweetening purposes.

People who have diabetes or hypoglycemia should be careful when consuming honey and its by-products because it affects blood sugar levels in the same way refined sugars do.

Tupelo honey contains more fructose than other types of honey and it’s absorbed at a slower rate, so some people with hypoglycemia can use this type sparingly without ill effects.

Buy only unfiltered, unheated, unprocessed honey, and never give to an infant under one year of age.

In its natural form, honey can contain spores of the bacteria that cause botulism.

This poses no problem for adults and older children, but in infants and those with compromised immune systems, the spores can colonize in the digestive tract and produce the deadly botulin toxin there.

Honey is safe for babies after age one.
