Health Benefits of Raw Local Honey

  • Topic Info:When you're suffering from allergies, or feeling under the weather, your body loses essential vitamins and nutrients that are needed to stay healthy. One alternative to taking medicines that may have their own side effects is incorporating local and raw honey into your beverages, food or just by itself.

    Raw honey is honey that hasn't been heated, pasteurized or processed in anyway, leaving the honey in its most natural form. The benefits come because you are eating the natural nutrients that help promote digestive health and stabilize blood pressure.

    Raw honey also has powerful antioxidants to eliminate allergies and can be used for skin wounds or rashes. When eating raw honey that is local, it can benefit you even more. Local raw honey contains pollen that is specifically in your area; therefore it can help with local seasonal allergies.

    In this segment of Staying Well, Dr. Wayne Scott Anderson shares the multiple benefits you receive from buying and eating local and raw honey.
