The Many Benefits Of Honey


Honey with its countless head to toe benefits doesn’t deserve to be labelled as old fashioned food … a natural sweetener, honey is a truly wonderful food and a precious factor between health and beauty.

In the first century BC, Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine realised the healing powers of honey and regularly prescribed it for his patients suffering from conditions, such as, skin disorders, sores, ulcers, respiratory ailments and fever.  Roman physicians were also in the habit of prescribing honey to patients who had trouble falling asleep and even today, a glass of warm milk sweetened with honey helps ensure a restful night.  In addition, many adult diseases can also be cured with a mixture of honey and cinnamon.
