Did you know that many foods provide you with more nutrition when eaten raw than they do when they are cooked? Let’s take a look.
Raw honey provides two key beneficial components, bee pollen, and propolis. It is a unique blend of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and phytonutrients that also contains phenolic compounds that fight free radicals known to contribute to aging and increase risk factors for chronic disease.
Phytonutrients that have both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are only found in raw honey and honey is a healthy substitute for table sugar. But beware that it is high in sugar and calories, so moderation is key, a teaspoon a day of raw honey is just fine.
