Benefits of Raw Local Honey


What is raw honey?

Raw honey is honey (nectar from flowers) that is pure, unheated, unpasteurized and unprocessed. This is the reason for the greater health benefits it has to offer. Raw honey contains 22 amino acids, 27 minerals and 5,000 enzymes. It also contains several minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and selenium. Raw honey is also a good source of vitamins including vitamin B6, thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and niacin.

Why local honey?

As bees jump from one flower to another they pick up pollen from them. That pollen then gets transferred to the honey they make. Eating honey from local bees introduces that same pollen into your system. Just a spoonful a day can help you begin to build an immunity through gradual exposure that can help kick those pesky allergies.
