Honey: A must read for those who eat it regularly

Truly, honey is a superfood, a nectarian delight and an effective healing agent all in one. It is packed with vitamins and minerals, enzymes and antioxidants, lots of carbohydrates in the form of sugars and even some amino acids. So sweet is it that, taken together, its unique combination of fructose and glucose makes it sweeter than table sugar. And remember that it is also compatible with the Pythagorean diet, or the theories of Hippocrates who praised balance: “The thing that maintains health within the body is equitable distribution and precise mixing of the forces (= fairness) of dry, liquid, cold, sweet, bitter, sour and salty”.

Fruit and honey are the best ways to introduce sweetness in a well balanced diet. But this is not all: When you have a moment, hold up a clear jar of honey up in the sunlight and see the golden nectar for what it is. Its amber color reflects much of the sun’s energy which was utilized in its process of creation.

In Ayurveda honey is considered one of the most effective natural delivery systems for the therapeutic administration of herbal preparations and other remedies.
As in all healing systems throughout the world, there is much subtlety and nuance associated with every healing agent “under the sun”. By that we mean that a single food or herb or spice has different healing qualities associated with it depending on it’s source, its specific type, ripeness, exact time of being picked or harvested, what kind of ground it is grown in, among several other determinants.
