Top 10 Natural Honey Benefits For Wellness & Beauty

Do you like honey? Have you used it as more than just a sweetener?

Since ancient times, people have used honey to treat various health conditions. When I learned about all the honey benefits, I was really shocked.

I love honey and only recently realized that I had been eating the wrong kind. I also thought honey was just a sweet enhancer made by bees, boy was I wrong.

Honey provides more than a taste for the sweet tooth, natural honey benefits your health and your body inside and out.

In order to reap the full benefits that honey has to offer, you must choose raw honey. Look for "100% Raw" on the label, it is the highest quality natural honey available, here is the brand we like.

The raw version has not been filtered or pasteurized, which means that it has not been stripped of its powerful vitamins and minerals.

Most store bought, commercialized honey has been pasteurized by heating to high temperatures. This destroys all the beneficial properties and removes most of the pollen.

Bee pollen may be one of the most complete foods available because of its antioxidant content and high amino acid. Check out the benefits you can enjoy by using raw honey.
