Honey is an optimum fuel for the brain to prevent metabolic stress and achieve restful sleep, which in turn is critical for our cognitive and memory enhancement. The polyphenol properties of honey can also counter oxidative stress and restore our cellular antioxidant defence system.
Honey has many incredible health benefits from boosting the immune system to supporting digestive health. It is important to always purchase raw unpasteurized honey. Honey that has been pasteurized has been subjected to very high heat. Unfortunately, this high heat destroys beneficial enzymes and nutrients such as B vitamins. The naturally sweet taste of honey makes it my favourite natural sweetener to add to tea, smoothies and this Honey Lemon Ginger Elixir is perfect to soothe a sore throat. Raw honey is not safe for those under 2 years of age.
