Health Benefits of RAW Honey..
One of the major benefits of raw honey is that it's nature's own multivitamin. Vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and even antioxidant-rich vitamin C are found in raw honey. It also contains minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, sodium chlorine, sulphur, and phosphate.
Raw honey has antibacterial and antifungal properties that make it an excellent option to treat wounds with — sort of like Neosporin does. And because of its immune-boosting antiviral properties, it traditionally has been used in the treatment of ulcers, diarrhea, bronchitis, and gastrointestinal issues.Honey that has been heated or pasteurized has lost all the necessary life giving propeties.
When shopping for raw honey, I recommend buying organic; honeybees can sometimes carry herbicides and pesticides from the flowers back to the hive. If you do buy organic, you're getting honey that is harvested with care in isolated, untouched areas filled with wildflowers. Also, keep in mind that children under one year of age should not consume honey as it may contain Clostridium botulinum spores and toxins that can cause infant botulism.
