Have you tried nature’s health-boosting dessert?

The next time you’re trying to satisfy that sweet tooth, steer clear of the usual suspects—cake, cookies, ice cream, etc.

Because nature provides us with its own sweet treat—a desert that’s actually good for you.

What I’m about to preach about is something that satisfies your sweet cravings and your health needs…

I’m talking about honey.

When I first read about all the health benefits of honey, I found it hard to believe. How can something that tastes so good be so good for you, too? That seemed to go against everything I’ve experienced.

So, I dug deep into research and…turns out it’s true! But you have to make sure you’re getting natural honey.

Despite being a basic form of simple sugar, honey can provide your body with several natural benefits…

1. It can sooth your sore throat

This is probably the most popular use of honey – using its natural anti-inflammatory properties to relieve the pain of a sore throat and coughing.

Simply mix in some of this sweet and sticky substance to a cup of tea for a soothing feeling that can help you sleep or get through parts of the day.

2. It can regulate your blood sugar

The sugar in honey is far better than that of table sugar.

Why? Because with table sugar, our bodies have to work to separate it into glucose and fructose before using it as energy.

But with honey, bees do the dividing of the honey molecules already, so our bodies can easily absorb it without having to take that bigger jolt to blood sugar levels.

3. It encourages good bacteria

To be perfectly clear, the type of honey that’s best for you is raw honey, which means no heating, filtering, or processing. But when you eat this raw honey, it has the added benefit of increasing good bacteria in the intestines by providing probiotics.

This prevents the harmful impact of bad bacteria!

4. It helps you maintain a healthy weight, provides healing properties, and assists brain function…

And in addition to those 3 main benefits, natural honey can enhance your health in more ways.

For instance, by encouraging you to cut back on table sugar, honey can help you shed unwanted pounds and maintain a healthy weight.

And for non-severe burns or wounds, the makeup of honey acts as a healing remedy by minimizing scarring and promoting new tissue growth.

Plus, honey will give you a natural energy boost, and some new studies have even shown that honey may improve brain function by lowering anxiety and enhancing memory!

Who would have thought that something so delicious could be so good for you…?

So, next time you reach for that cake or box of cookies at the grocery store, do yourself a favor and keep strolling through to the honey aisle and pick up some natural honey.
