Discover Honey’s Amazing Bee-Healthy Powers
Did you know?...
Known as Mother Nature’s “nectar of the gods,” honey was praised for its healing powers as far back as 5,000 years ago by Egyptians.
Eating honey can help lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes—even help reduce body fat and unwanted weight!—and increase longevity.
Pure, raw, unprocessed honey is a healthier sweetener than table sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. It’s chock-full of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins—and only has 21 calories per teaspoon.
Super “bee foods” (including nutrient-rich bee pollen, propolis, and royal jelly) are used and touted for their healing powers by beekeepers and medical experts in the present day.
Honey can relieve a variety of ailments, including allergies, coughs, fatigue, pain, and stress, as well as boost libido.
The honey bee pollinates about one-third of the food we consume (including nutritious fruits and nuts).
Drawing on the latest honey buzz and interviews with medical doctors, beekeepers, and researchers, this charming and enlightening book (sweetened with stories about honey bees and humans) reveals 30 healing honey varieties paired with cinnamon and teas, tells you how to incorporate honey into Mediterranean-style, heart-healthy recipes such as Honey Custard French Toast, Honey-Glazed Game Hen, and Filo Pear and Honey Tarts, and provides more than 50 home cures that combat digestive woes to skin woes. You’ll also enjoy Cleopatra’s milk-and-honey beauty treatments and eco-friendly beeswax household uses—all made with the amazing honey bee’s gifts!
Do you like honey? I know I do, actually you could say I love honey. There are so many things that can be done with honey and this book gives us a glimpse at some of them. From adding sweetness to food and drink to helping to heal and relieve some ailments honey does it all. I really enjoyed the recipes in this book. There were so many delicious sounding ones to try.
I found some new ways to use my honey as well even some different ways to heal some of my common aches and pains. While I would check with your doctor before trying any of these cures, it is still an interesting look at what honey can do. This book also contains a nice addition in a listing of some of the major honey companies around the world. It is not every company but it is a start. A quick and interesting read on some of the uses and facts on honey makes this a great addition to my bookshelves.
