Honey strengthens the immune system.

Honey’s immunity strengthening ability has been the stuff of legend. Didn’t your grandmother always tell you to have a honey and hot lemon drink at the first sign of a cold? Please click here to learn how to make a honey tonic.

Honey can help reduce allergies. This is especially true if the honey is RAW and LOCAL honey. By getting the allergy (hayfever) suffer to consume honey that is both raw AND local all year round, it is hoped that they will consume small amounts of local pollens and grasses.  This would be processed via the very powerful digestive system.  It is hoped that this would help the body build up enough resistance to these pollens/grasses over the course of the year, so that by Springtime when these plants are in full bloom, the body would have hopefully built up a layer of resistance to the pollens and the Allergy suffer’s hayfever will be greatly reduced or eliminated.

  1. Hello Rebecca…..(or should I say, G’Day ya Bonza Shiela)
    I read your wonderful website about Australian and New Zealand honey, Manuka Honey, to be more precise. I know the benefits as I live in Australia in the Capital city of Canberra and I work in the suburb of Manuka. Anyway, back to your website… I think it’s great! Very informative too I really enjoyed the video promoting Capilano honey, which is a 100% Australian owned company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and is valued at round $16.25 a share.
    Just thought you’d like to know.
    And the video by Dr. Josh Axe on the health benefits of Manuka Honey, he mentions that Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand but he doesn’t say that Australia is the largest producer of Manuka honey….. I know beekeepers that live on properties just out of Canberra and they sell the most delicious Manuka Honey, according to my wife who buys it on a regular basis. Unfortunately only my wife eats it because I am allergic to it. But your site is great!
    Well done…..

    1. Hi Roldan,

      Thank you so much for stopping by. I always really appreciate it when I get to meet a Manuka Honey enthusiast like yourself.

      It’s great to hear that your wife likes Manuka honey and buys local, raw Manuka Honey in Canberra. It really is amazing for her health.

      I am genuinely sorry to hear that you are allergic to it though. What you are saying it true, unfortunately some people are allergic to raw honey. It is thought that these suffers are allergic to the Propolis (honey glue) found in raw honey. I am sorry to say that in severe cases this can even trigger an Anaphylaxis reaction. I sincerely hope that your allergy is not that strong and passes quickly.

      I can see that you like quirky facts, so I have one for you. Did you know that the wax used by Antonio Stradivari on the world famous Stradivarius Violins was reported to be the Propolis from bees wax?

      Thank you again for stopping by today.
      All the best.

  2. Honey is just such amazing stuff. So many health benefits and not to mention how delicious it is! It’s so tasty that I forget that it’s actually healthy sometimes. I love honey in my hot drinks and in my smoothies instead of sugar. It has a more interesting flavor than using sugar too which is great.

    1. Thanks Hannah. Yes, I agree honey really is wonderful stuff!  It’s great that you use it in your smoothies instead of sugar. Did you know that honey is actually really good for weight loss?

      Unbelievable I know, but it is!  Just like you said, simply substitute white processed sugar with honey in your smoothie.  Honey has more calories than white sugar, but because honey tastes sweeter than white sugar you will only need half as much, so honey wins overall.  For more information, please take a look at this great post Raw Honey and Weight Loss – The Results Will Surprise You
