Honey deserves your attention. Not only is it a healthy choice, but it has medicinal benefits.
Did you know that honey can sooth a sore throat? It is not just an old wives's tale but has been medically proven that honey can kill certain bacteria at the root of the infection. Add honey, lemon juice and a pinch of salt to warm water to sip or gargle to ease the inflammation of a cold or flu. Mother Rabbit loves this recipe.
I have heard that it lessens allergy symptoms when people use local honey during allergy season. The pollens that irritate would be the same pollens that the bees use. Kind of like a natural vaccine?
Honey is also a natural way to get a needed energy boost. Forget the addictive chemical-laden energy drinks. Try a spoonful of honey. Its natural sugars (glucose and fructose) are absorbed quickly for an instant boost. A honey of a sweet deal.
