Honey – a miracle of nature
Honey – a gift of nature – is the perfect natural food. Entitled “Nectar of the Gods”, it has been a very good business card for over 3,000 years. In Roman times it was used as a means of currency to pay taxes. In ancient Greece, before marriage, girls soaked their fingers in honey to ensure a sweet married life, and practically all over the world, honey was used for its medicinal properties.
Honey has proven healing qualities and is still a popular medicine worldwide for the treatment of sore throats, coughs and colds and also antiseptic.
Honey is also known to increase mental activity and regulate blood pressure because it contains more vitamins, irreplaceable amino acids, ferments and minerals than meat, eggs or cheese. Others would prefer to consume it naturally, coming directly from the work of bees.
