Health Benefits & Healing Properties

Pure rich honey can help your body to heal itself and stay healthy.

Several factors may account for honey’s healing properties. Bacterial infections require water to thrive, but the sugars in honey attract water, so may deprive bacteria.

Bee pollen and propolis enzymes are present in honey. These work from within the honey to sterilise wounds and assist healing.

Glucose oxidase found in honey combines with water and produces hydrogen peroxide, of which the antiseptic properties are released when honey touches the skin. Various types of honey contain different antibacterial substances.

Daily use of honey strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks. Honey contains various vitamins and iron. Constant use of honey strengthens the white blood cells to fight both bacteria and viruses, making honey a regular part of your diet is therefore especially important at that time of year when you may end up bed-ridden with flu.

Beyond all this, honey can be used to assist in healing a wide variety of different medical ailments, particularly when used with other natural ingredients such as cinnamon, cider vinegar or lemon.
