The great Hippocrates famously said: 'Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food' and honey has been used as both food and medicine by humans since the stone age. Honey is pre-digested by the honeybee, concentrating flower nectar into its purest form, making it ready for our metabolism to process, and our bodies to absorb.
It doesn't matter whether you like your honey on your porridge, in your tea, to enhance your cooking and baking, to accompany your favourite cheese, or simply by the spoonful, honey is enjoyed the world over - and for good reason. Although Honey is primarily a sugar-derived carbohydrate, it contains many proteins, enzymes and amino acids, as well as B and K vitamins, making it a delicious, nutritious, un-refined, Paleo-friendly sweetener. Raw honey should also be considered a bio-active living food. Not only does it provide the body with instant and sustained energy, it supports gut-friendly bacteria and healthy digestion. Honey boosts the immune system and has an antibacterial effect, helping the body to heal when both ingested and also used topically.
