Who doesn’t love honey? 🐝
Raw (unfiltered & unpasteurized) honey has recently been found to have an added health benefit!
Research has revealed honey’s ability to decrease the overall amount of cholesterol in the bloodstream. Pretty cool, huh?
🐝Quick Facts (based on the study linked below) 🐝
🌼 Honey was compared with sucrose in this study. Each study participant was given approx 10 teaspoons of either sucrose or honey per day for 6 weeks.
🌼 Those who consumed honey had significantly decreased total cholesterol and LDL (the “bad” guys), and increased HDL (the “good” guys).
🌼 Conversely, those who consumed sucrose had increased total cholesterol and LDL levels, and a decrease in HDL levels.
🌼 The main finding of the study was the ability of raw honey to modulate certain risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease. 🐝
I love raw honey for a variety of reasons, and this study gave it another ✅ in my book. There really are amazing healing capabilities in whole fresh foods!
Raw honey can sometimes be found in grocery stores…. but usually, it is best found at Farmer’s Markets, Feed Stores, and thru a neighborhood beekeeper….. the more local the source the better it will serve you 🐝 and your allergies.
🐝Honey is also loaded with something called polyphenols…. a nutritionally dense phytochemical having antioxidant properties.
Want to spice up your honey a little and add even more polyphenols to your day? Add a drop or two of YL Clove Vitality (#5620) or YL Cinnamon Vitality (#5585) oil to your honey. Both oils are approved for ingestion by the FDA. 🐝
