Why is Honeycomb Good for You?

 

From minerals to a protected liver, honeycomb may nourish your body, support your immune system and more.

Loaded with Minerals

Honeycomb is comprised of minerals, vitamins, pollen, and protein. When you go to town on honeycomb, it can deliver minerals like:

  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Sodium Chloride
  • Potassium

The specific mineral amounts vary based on the honey itself, as different flora will produce different levels.

 

Get Gut Healthy

It’s easy to forget how important it is to have a healthy gut. Sometimes, it’s only once we have indigestion that we think about treating our belly right. Some studies show that honey functions as a prebiotic—food for “good bug” probiotics—which can help support gut health.

In addition to helping us beat indigestion and to feel good, there is something else raw honey may bring to the mix. Raw honey helps to establish a healthy alkaline balance. This means that you have a healthy pH and ideal level acidity. This is important because, in our modern lifestyle, our stomach acid can easily be unbalanced. It’s a problem if the pH is off because healthy cells survive best in an alkaline environment - not an acidic one.

 

Anytime you eat or drink something, it affects your pH. It ups acidity or lowers it. The big issue is that most foods in popular culture up acidity. Coffee. Processed foods. Whole grains. These all tend to up acidity and draw away from that alkaline. It’s beyond heartburn. It’s even suspected that too much acid can lead to issues with muscles and bones.

Raw honey helps to maintain that healthy level of pH.

Studies have shown a reduction of free radicals by eating raw honey.

 

Reduce Free Radicals

Protect the Liver

 

Studies have shown eating honey can help support your liver. According to a study published on NCBI, honey can help balance the liver and neutralize toxins. This is because problems with the liver are often rooted in oxidative damage. Honey’s antioxidants such as phenolics and peptides enter the picture and help to protect the liver. Additionally, honey has a lower glycemic index than processed sugar or high-fructose sugar, making it a better option for sugar-sensitive people.

 

Chew On It

 

  • Oral health, providing relief from toothaches and helping to cleanse gums
  • Allergies
  • Neck and even jaw (yes jaw!) tension
  • A sore throat, bronchitis and even pneumonia

Experts believe that the antibacterial benefits of honey are the main reason chewing the wax is so healthy. Even though some feel a mere few minutes of chewing can help, other sources recommend chewing the honey for as long as possible—up to 10 minutes.

Honeycomb Holds Royal Jelly, Too!

 

The royal jelly is a white, jelly-like secretion that comes from those hard working worker bees. Consumed mostly by the queen bee, it is her superfood. So, in the bee world, it is quite literally for royalty.

It is not only packed with benefits for bees but humans, as well. It is an anti-inflammatory and carries anti-bacterial properties. These properties and others can make it ideal for:

  • Asthma and allergies, such as hay fever
  • Fatigue
  • Infertility
  • Disorders, such as skin disorders and pancreatitis
  • Overall health and wellness

Thought to help with overall health and wellness, it can help in maintaining a healthy immune system and may even have anti-aging properties. This is why some people apply it to their skin.
