Action and Function of Organic Raw Honey:
We had received so many compliments on the quality of the honey used in our products we decided to include it in our product line. Honey is mankind's oldest sweetener. Honey has been successfully used in traditional medicines for centuries in treating a variety of internal and external ailments. Bees make honey from the nectar of flowers and they will travel as far as 40,000 miles and visit over 2 million flowers to produce one pound of honey. Have hay fever or allergies problems? Many individuals eat honey to build tolerances to pollen. Try our Organic Wildflower honey, each jar can represents over 100 different varieties of flowers and pollen sources. Today many honeys are adulterated with corn syrup, we make sure that ours is pure straight from the hive of reputable apiarists. Our honey is raw and unprocessed. This means that it comes straight from the hive to you. It is not heated to high temperatures like most store brand honeys. Honey that is heated looses the natural enzymes and minerals that are essential to health. *
This honey is light amber in color, has a wonderful floral aroma, and great as a table honey or in your favorite recipe.
New Research Findings About Raw Honey's Healing Properties:
Honey is mostly glucose and fructose. These sugars are strongly attracted to water, forming a viscous syrup. When spread on a wound, honey absorbs water and body fluids, thus dessicating bacteria and fungi and inhibiting their growth".
Raw honey contains glucose oxidase, an enzyme that, in the presence of a little water, produces hydrogen peroxide, a mild antiseptic. Glucose oxidase is destroyed by bright light, heat an pastuerization, so it is absent from most commercial honeys.

Honey Promotes Healing:
A study by Robert Bloomfield published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, reports "Applied every to 3 days under a dry dressing, honey promotes healing of ulcers and burns better than any other local application. It can also be applied to other surface wounds, ncluding cuts and abrasions...."
Honey has anti-cancer properties:
Recent studies by Gribel and Pashinskii indicated that honey possessed moderate antitumor and pronounced antimetastatic effects in five different strains of rat and mouse tumors. Futhermore, honey potentiated the antitumor activity of chemotherapeutic drugs such as 5-fluorouracil and cyclophosphamide.

C.V. Rao at the American Health Foundation in Valhalla, New York found caffeic acids in proplis are inhibitors of colon cancers in animals. Other research shows hive products have the ability to prevent and halt the spread of malignant diseases. Earlier research by M.T. Huang also published in Cancer Research found caffeic acids effective in inhibiting skin cancer tumors in mice.
