Raw Honey

Raw Coastal Wildflower Honey

Raw Coastal Wildflower Honey is derived from the finest California wildflowers. Honey is so much more than glucose and fructose–it is a nutrient-rich substance with an impressive array of vitamins and minerals with trace amounts of amino acids and antioxidants. Honey contains proteins, carbohydrates, hormones, organic acids, and anti-microbial compounds.

A report in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine further backs the benefits of raw honey with their opinion: “The therapeutic potential benefits of pure, raw honey is grossly underutilized. It is widely available in most communities and although we don’t totally understand why it can heal various health conditions we know that from studies it has many benefits. The time has now come for conventional medicine to lift the blinds off this ‘traditional remedy’ and give it its due recognition.”

Commercial honey is often heavily processed and may even have been chemically refined. Excessive heat destroys the natural enzymes, vitamins, and minerals in honey. Filtering and processing eliminates many of the beneficial phytonutrients including pollen and enzyme-rich propolis. The only way to achieve sparkling clear honey is by heat, so avoid the golden syrup-like honey in favor of opaque organic raw honey.

Raw honey is a concentrated source of natural goodness. Benefits include:

A rich taste
• High nutritional benefits
• Promotes the growth of good bacteria in the intestine
• Soothes and heals skin wounds
• Blocks free radicals
• Aids sleep
• Counters pollen allergies
• Reduces homocysteine levels to maintain a healthy heart

Honey-infused bandages are known to aid healing. Peter Charles Molan at the University of Waikato, New Zealand found that honey reacts with the body’s fluids to make hydrogen peroxide, creating an inhospitable environment for bacteria.

Research studies have already shown that replacing sugar with honey in the diet results in less weight gain and lower blood sugar levels. Switching to honey may even aid in weight loss when compared to diets containing sugar or HFCS.

Honey provides a ready supply of energy in the form of liver glycogen, making it ideal for energetic morning starts and as a pre- and post-exercise energy source. It also boosts the immune system, acting as a preventative against any number of debilitating diseases.

Honey contains many antioxidants including flavonoids to maintain the body’s health balance. Pinostrobin supports enzyme activity while the antioxidant-rich organic acids maintain an optimal slightly acidic pH in the body. Pinocembrin is an antioxidant flavonoid thought to be unique to honey while the amino acids in honey are the body’s building blocks of protein.

Honey promotes restorative sleep as it slowly releases the glycogen needed for essential bodily functions during sleep. Adding honey to milk at bedtime helps the body release melatonin into the brain, which is necessary for deep sleep.

Melatonin also boosts immunity and helps rebuild tissue during periods of rest. Poor sleep, by comparison, has been shown to be a risk factor for hypertension, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and arthritis. As honey is a proven sleep aid, it naturally lowers the risk of all these health problems.

Honey does not need special storage or refrigeration – use it straight from the jar. Expiration: None

Contains none of the eight major allergens, however, bee products may cause allergic reactions in some people.[/fullwidth]
