Improves and restores the immune system Fresh, unprocessed honey has been shown to stimulate antibody production .
Reduces metabolic stress An adequate glycogen store in the liver is essential for brain fuel during the night fast and during prolonged exercise.Without sufficient glycogen, the brain triggers the release of stress hormones – adrenalin and cortisol – in order to convert muscle protein into glucose.The randomized study was partially double-blinded: Medical staff did not know what treatment each participating family received when distributing their sealed syringe-containing envelope.Across the board, parents in this study rated honey as significantly better than DM or no treatment for symptomatic relief of their child’s nighttime cough and sleep difficulty .Understanding how honey is collected, processed and packaged is an important factor in determining the health properties of honey.
Only pure, unprocessed raw honey will provide you with optimal health benefits.
This is honey that has not been heated beyond 95 degrees F.
which kills healthful enzymes and probiotics, has not been micro-filtered which removes beneficial pollen residues, and has had nothing added for any reason.
It is fructose that “unlocks” the enzyme from the hepatocyte nucleus that is necessary for the incorporation of glucose into glycogen in the liver.
An adequate glycogen store in the liver is essential for brain fuel during the night fast and during prolonged exercise .
Repeated metabolic stress from cortisol produced in excess when there are less than optimal liver glycogen stores during sleep, leads over time, to impaired glucose metabolism, insulin resistance, diabetes and increased risk for cardiovascular disease, hypertension, obesity, osteoporosis, some forms of cancer, and several neuro-degenerative conditions.
