Raw Honey

What is raw honey?

Unheated honey. You can even go more natural and get unfiltered raw honey, which means that it can have particles of honeycomb, pollen or bee body parts in it. It’s typically a bit opaque in color.

Why is raw honey better for me than regular honey?

It’s a superfood. The enzymes, which the honeybees add while it’s in their “honey stomach”, along with the natural antioxidants, vitamins and minerals haven not been killed off in the heating process . These natural enzymes and nutrients help ward off harmful bacteria and viruses in your gut (i.e.: your intestines).

The “energy crashes” you sometimes get after eating regular honey (or any other processed sugar) will be reduced because it doesn’t raise your blood sugar levels as much.

Okay…What kind of raw honey should I buy?

Any kind that has the ingredient being “raw honey”. That’s it. Just do your body a favor and stop buying that fake, totally see through, syrupy honey. It’s crap. The kind I typically buy is Nature Nate’s 100% Pure, Raw and Unfiltered Honey, 32 Ounce

*Disclaimer

Remember, it’s still sugar, so if you’re planning on using a bottle a week then don’t plan on shedding pounds. It’s not a miracle worker!
