Honey Is A Miracle Worker
It is funny what a little honey can do. For me it started when I was little and would get a cold we always made honey and fresh lemon in a pot and drank it to soothe the throat but also for its inflammatory properties. After many years I continue this tradition but have added many more after discovering so many other benefits of honey. The key is it to be pure honey or manuka nothing added.
When I went to Italy I had a honey facial and learned how it is great for acne and all of these other skin benefits moisturises the skin deeply, acts as a pore cleanser, lightens scars, useful on sunburn and adds a natural glow.
This is something I learned more recently for injuries honey has anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used as a wound dressing to promote rapid and improved healing. These effects are due to honey's anti-bacterial action, secondary to its high acidity, osmotic effect, anti-oxidant content and hydrogen peroxide content.
If you are having muscle pain the carbohydrates help your muscles to stay nourished longer and delay fatigue. Keep on eating honey during the recovery period after your workout and you'll refuel your cells, decreasing delayed-onset muscle soreness. After just a spoonful of honey you'll feel refreshed and ready to do it all over again!
