Tip, Trick & a Recipe: Something sweet with health benefits

Honey is the magic produced inside beehives and coveted by people and bears alike; there’s really nothing like it in the world. Honey is one of the few sweet foods in life that has huge health benefits.

Just like coconut milk, honey is an antiviral, antifungal, and antimicrobial substance. This comes from the bee propolis (the stuff bees produce to “glue” cracks etc. in the hive and keep it secure) which in turn becomes deposited into the honey.

Honey contains certain phytonutrients that are anticancer and tumor prevention. How’s that for some sweet news?

Here’s today’s TRICK:

Got allergies? Try a teaspoon a day of local honey to keep the allergies at bay. The theory behind the local honey is the very pollens that are bothering you will end up in the local honey you ingest, thereby inoculating you as if being vaccinated against the local allergens.

Personally, this has worked miracles for me and I do suggest you try it!
