HEALTHY BENEFITS OF BEE PRODUCTS
Posted by Golden on August 14th, 2010
HONEY: honey has self healing properties. It contains the vitamins and minerals that are lacking in refined table sugar, making it a much healthier sweetener. Honey has always been taken traditionally for heartburn and stomach ulcers. The only warning against this delicious, bacteria fighting sweetener is that it should never be given to children under the age of one because raw honey may contain botulism spores. Other important health benefits of honey are:
First aids for wounds. Honey can be used topically. Honey soaked gauze can be wrapped around wounds to help healing and applied to insect bite to sooth and prevent infections. Eat a table spoon of honey to sooth a sore throat and also soothe the throat. One table spoon of unfiltered and unprocessed honey can do wonder for allergies.
Cure a cough: core and peel one Asian pear, adding one table spoon of honey to the center, and steam or bake for 10-15 minutes. Eat these two or three times a day to nourish your lungs and sooth a cough.
Counteract constipation by drinking 12 oz glass of lukewarm water with one table spoon of honey on an empty stomach.
BEE POLLEN AND PROPOLIS: these two bee Products might surprise you with their potential properties. Bee pollen is rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids and gives your vitality and a boost to your immunity. It also protects the liver from toxins and benefits men with enlarged prostates.
Proapolis is a resin that is secreted by bees to repair their hive and it acts as a protective layer against invading microbes and other organisms. Proapolis stimulates the immune functions and contains terpenoids, which possess the antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal agents. Similar to certain prescription antibiotics, propolis can prevent bacterial cell division and breakdown the cell walls of invading organisms. Of course never stop prescription medication without checking with your doctor.
