This sweet and delicious substance not only adds great flavor to a big, fluffy biscuit and decadent desserts, it is packed with nutrients that are good for your body inside and out. September marks National Honey Month – here’s why we’re celebrating nature’s original sweetener.
A. It’s a Natural Sweetener: Perfect for our sweet tooth, honey is a natural product free of processed sugars and other chemicals and contains virtually no fiber, protein or fat.
B. It’s Healthy for You: High quality honey is rich in antioxidants. Two studies have shown that buckwheat honey increases the antioxidants value in your blood.
C. It Can Improves Your Zzzzz’s: Serotonin, which is released as a result of honey causing your insulin level to rise, gets converted into melatonin, with melatonin helping you drift off into dreamland.
A. It Moisturizes: Drawing moisture from the air and into your skin, raw honey hydrates your skin and leaves it soft and radiant.
B. It Exfoliates: Crystallize the honey by rubbing it between your fingers and use as a gentle scrub on your face.
C. It Fades Scars: Antioxidants in honey work to reduce scar and stretch marks. Mix with lemon juice for better results.
D. It Heals: Wounds and burns benefit from the healing powers of honey with its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
A. Deep Conditioning: Applying honey to your hair helps moisturize and condition it, leaving it shiny and bouncy.
B. Scalp Cleansing: Honey smooths a dry, itchy scalp helping prevent scalp infections.
C. Promotes Hair Growth: Being packed with lots of nutrients, honey helps moisturize the hair follicles to help promote natural hair growth.
