Herbal supplements for good health and fitness-IV

The next item in the superfoods family of healthy diet plan is 'Honey'


Honey is made by worker bees from the nectar of flowers. It contain small quantities of antigens that are contained in flowers and pollens, and pushes the body to create antibodies or protective cells to build immunity. Being a pre-digested sugar, it is easily absorbed by the weak and frail.
Honey is not fattening despite its being sweet because of its invert sugar (a mixture of equal parts of glucose and fructose resulting from the hydrolysis of sucrose), which is why weight loss practitioners advice you to have it with lemon and hot water. Though, if you have honey with milk and almonds it will be fattening.

Honey is also a very good anti-bacterial agent helping in maintaining good health and fitness. It kills even the most potent bacteria by sucking out their water. It is also an excellent moisture retainer and often used for skin treatment. It is rich in enzymes that comes from the worker bees. Plus,it is a source of pre-digested sugar.


Add honey to herbal tea to sweeten it since it doesn't lead to weight gain. Or add it to a glass of warm water and lemon to help in weight loss. Otherwise, you can eat it on toast or add it to oat porridge with a dash of cinnamon to make a nutritious breakfast dish for thin or normal weight
children.If you mix a teaspoon of honey with two teaspoon of powdered black pepper, a fewdrops og ginger juice and tulsi, you will get one of the most effective cough medication ever.


Do not give natural honey to toddlers under two years old as their immune system may not respond to it well.
