Pure Bee Honey boosts your immunity.
Making it a must have in every home during these unpleasant times.
Yes Bee honey has been used as immunity booster for thousands of years. Especially in our own Ayurveda practices. Sri Lankan Bee honey in particular is far superior given that bees take pollen from a multitude of medicinal plants. If our forests were a cabinet of medicines, our pure Sri Lankan bee honey is a concentration of all their healing goodness.
Let’s look at the science behind this. Bee Honey contains Flavonoids and Polyphenols which act as antioxidants. These protect the structural integrity of cells and tissues. They also have the ability to neutralise free radicals and thereby eliminate the damage that can be done to our immune cells.
Pure Sri Lanka Bee Honey is rich in iron, calcium and magnesium. These and other inherent essences in bee honey are known to exert antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory effects. They are even known to possess anti-cancer and ant metastatic properties.
To get the maximum benefits of honey you need to ensure that they are raw and untreated (unheated and not pasteurised as this process destroys the inherent benefits of bee honey). Honey from your own region (Sri Lankan bee honey vs imported) is also believed to be better for you as it is believed to better relate to your body and your immunity.
The benefits of bee honey are far more than being just a boost for your immunity. Bee honey mixed with ingredients like Cinnamon, Ginger, Garlic and Garcinia can have benefits ranging from weight loss, lowering blood pressure, boosting energy, treating coughs and phlegm, relieving pain, improved sleep and even healing wounds. The evidence for all these are substantial and widely available online should you want to do your own research.
The best way to consume bee honey is to have a teaspoon or two first thing in the morning. You can also mix it into a glass water (water that is too hot will destroy the medicinal qualities). Later on you can use it as a natural sweetener, add as a topping or drizzle on your favourite pancakes or roti. The simple act of replacing refined sugar with bee honey will have significant medicinal benefits although bee honey too should be used in the quantities that meet daily requirements.
