Benefits of Orange honey
- Antimicrobial action. Used for wound healing, improving the appearance of acne/ acne scars and treating respiratory tract infections by reducing bacterial load.
- Relaxing effect. Recommended as a sedative.
- Stimulates appetite. This honey is particularly sweet with a citrusy aftertaste. It contains enzymes and simple carbohydrates that aid digestion and encourage eating.
- Good for hypoglycaemia. Being primarily a source of natural sugars, orange honey is a great tool for fighting hypoglycaemia. One tablespoon can give from 15-40 minutes of energy.
- Low pollen content. Less likely to cause allergic reactions than other varieties.
- Good for skin health. Apply raw honey to the face and wait 15-20 minutes. Wash face with lukewarm water. Skin glows and redness of acne scars is reduced. Pores are clean and less visible, and honey also prevents breakouts.
- Helps eradicate H. pylori infection. When honey comes into contact with gastric juices, it releases hydrogen peroxide, a strong antiseptic, acting directly at the site of the infection. Hydrogen peroxide encourages healing of the stomach lining.
- Great for sore throat and bacterial respiratory infections. With its viscous consistency, it sticks to the throat lining, forming a protective coating that allows the mucous lining to heal.
- Nutritious. Contains simple carbohydrates, traces of amino acids and minerals such as potassium, calcium, zinc, magnesium and sodium. It is a great substitute for refined sugars and artificial sweeteners, though not as nutritious as dark coloured honey.
