Cooking With Honey
Health Benefits of Honey
Today honey is used in kitchens all over the world, and its health benefits are now becoming more and more apparent. As a sore throat remedy or a topical dressing for minor burns and cuts, this miracle of nature gets better and better the more we learn.
Honey has long been used for digestive issues such as stomach ulcers and gastroenteritis. It has detoxification benefits, and it helps maintain a healthier immune system. Honey contains most B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5 and B6. Minerals such as potassium, magnesium, calcium, sulfur, iron and phosphate also are present in small quantities.
Many natural elements are found in honey, derived from the plants and flowers that bees get from the pollination process. These natural herbal elements can vary in quantity and type, depending on the location of the hives harvested and what plants and flowers they are pollinating.
