Local Honey is the Bee's Knees
The medicinal benefits of honey have been recognized for ages. Here are a few in case you're still unsure.
ALLERGIES A tablespoon of local honey each day can relieve the symptoms of pollen related allergies. How? Bees are collecting nectar from the very plants that are making you sneeze and sniffle, and so with that honey you can ingest small amounts of the very allergen that is troubling you.
COUGHS A 2007 study from Penn State College of Medicine that involved 139 children, found that buckwheat honey outperformed the cough suppressant, dextromethorphan (DM), in calming nighttime coughs in children and improving their sleep.
VITAMINS Honey contains vitamins and minerals, including niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.
FUEL Honey makes an excellent source of all-natural energy that is superior to other conventional sources. Grab a honey stick for a quick pick-me-up during endurance events.
