Silver Spoon Sunday: The Benefits Of Bees
Honey has been prized for its health benefits by humans for many millennia. It has been used topically and internally for a wide range of complaints from stomach aches to wounds and burns. Only recently have the antiseptic and antibacterial properties of honey been confirmed by scientific research.
Now the makers of LifeMel Honey are moving the health benefits to a whole new level. They raise honeybees on nectars infused with specific medicinal herbs to create honey for specific treatments. They are creating honeys for support during chemotherapy, bronchial issues, and digestive health, among others.
Just a spoonful of honey morning and night is purported to improve health. The price for a 4-ounce jar can run from $40 to $80 depending on which variety you are looking to purchase.
