Benefits of honey:

Honey contains flavonoids, antioxidants which help reduce the risk of cancers and heart disease. Research shows that because of its powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, having a few teaspoons of honey daily as treatment may help disorders such as ulcers and bacterial gastroenteritis. (Honey becomes anti-bacterial and anti-fungal because the bees add an enzyme that makes hydrogen peroxide.) But - it only gets rid of harmful and unhealthy bacteria. It does possess large amounts of friendly bacteria!

Honey also helps maintain glycogen levels which helps in physical performance. When warmed, it is used often to treat sore throats and also encourages natural sleep and speeds up healing during sleep. It is also said to be useful in improving eyesight, weight loss, curing impotence and premature ejaculation, urinary tract disorders, bronchial asthma, diarrhea, and nausea.

Honey is referred as “Yogavahi” since it has a quality of penetrating the deepest tissues of the body. When honey is used with other herbal preparations, it enhances the medicinal qualities of those preparations and also helps them to reach the deeper tissues. This is why a honey infusion is so successful as a natural medicine.
