Healthy Honey

What's the buzz? Honey has so many wonderful characteristics besides its natural sweet flavor - they don't call it the "ancient healer" for nothing.

Besides being great at soothing a sore throat, check this out, Honey....

  • it could be helpful in treating your allergies.
  • it's antimicrobial because of its high sugar content, so it's great for treating cuts and burns to prevent scarring.
  • it contains vitamins B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and pantothenic acid.
  • it also has minerals like calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc.
  • it contains natural antioxidants such as vitamin C.
  • There are over 300 different varieties of Honey, ranging in color and flavor, depending on what plants the bees gather nectar from.
  • Honey never goes bad, because it's slightly acidic, bacteria won't grow in it.

Fit's Tip: Using Honey in your baked goods will keep them moist for a longer period of time.
