When it comes to health advantages, raw honey is the bee’s knees. In contrast to the honey you may find on grocery store shelves, raw honey is unfiltered, unheated, and unprocessed, which preserves all its enzymes, amino acids, and pollen. As a result, it is naturally antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory and can be used for a host of natural medicinal purposes.
Some seasonal-allergy sufferers utilize raw, locally cultivated honey in an attempt to become less sensitive to the pollen they are inhaling in their own backyards. And while drinking hot tea or warm water with lemon and honey is an age-old—and effective—remedy for sore throats, using honey as a cough suppressant has begun to gain traction.
Richard and Wendy Spinale have found success and personal satisfaction from introducing people to the power of raw honey with their company, Bee Unique Everything Honey & More. Their blended raw honeys offer extra boosts thanks to the addition of hive byproducts royal jelly, propolis, and bee pollen (to ramp up the antioxidant and antiviral oomph) and natural powerhouses like turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon.
