If you are looking for something which is sinfully yet naturally sweet, spreadable and rich – then the golden liquid that is honey is exactly what you are looking for. We all know where honey comes from, and as purported by the United State National Honey Board – honey is a “pure product which does not allow for the addition of water and other sweeteners”. Thus, it is not recommended to mix honey with other artificial sweeteners and why would you even want to do that when this rich, golden-colored liquid is already deliciously sweet anyway?
For several centuries now, honey has been used to treat various ailments. Honey is known to possess antimicrobial agents, as well as antioxidant components which help boost the immune system. When honey is used as a topical agent, it has antiseptic properties which help promote wound healing.
When mixed with lemon juice, honey is a traditional treatment for sore throat. In addition, nature’s natural sweetener is good for patients with a high cholesterol level or diabetes. Finally, honey helps rid the body of harmful free radicals which make it a potent antioxidant.
Some people say that something which is too sweet is never good for your health – but this is obviously not the case with honey!
