Honey is an incredibly versatile ingredient in both food and natural remedies. It has been used for both food and medicine since ancient times, and is still just as popular today. Raw honey has a myriad of benefits; it can boost energy, help with weight loss, can help heal burns and wounds, is chock full of antioxidants, nourishes skin, helps soothe sore throats and suppress coughs, and so much more! Honey is often used as a sweetener in place of sugar because it is lower on the glycemic index, contains trace minerals and nutrients, and is so sweet that you often need to use less of it than you would with regular sugar. Simply put, honey is amazing – and we’re not the only ones who think so!
