Naturally complex and full of companion nutrients
Superfoods are naturally complex foods that offer your body a wide array of beneficial nutrients.
Foods naturally rich in anti-oxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes are generally considered superfoods because they provide both fuel and compounds to not only maintain but also strengthen your health.
Honey is a go-to superfood
Honey is one of the most complex superfoods available. To date over 180 different substances have been found in honey. The number of nutrients depends on the nectar sources available to the bees, but from honey you can get nine essential amino acids, nine non-essential amino acids, seventeen trace elements, sixteen antioxidants, eleven minerals and five enzymes just to name a few. On top of those, another 113 substances such as acids, phenols, pro-biotics, vitamins and lipids have been found in honey.
Honey is good for your digestion
Honey contains a nearly 1:1 ratio of fructose to glucose and virtually no fiber, making it one of the most easily digested foods available. Additionally, the probiotics found in honey can help improve your gastro-intestinal health.
Topical uses for honey
Honey has been shown to exhibit anti-microbial properties and has been used for centuries around the world for infections and wound care.
Honey for immunity and detoxification
Honey can strengthen your immune system, reduce coughs and hypertension and protect against elevated triglycerides. Additionally honey helps detoxify alcohol from your liver.
Change how you think of honey
Considering the high number of available nutrients and its low digestive load, honey should not be considered a simple sweetener. Honey is a complex superfood that provides direct and efficient fuel to your brain and body.
