Source @ Foodmatters.tv – 05 Aug 2011

What is raw honey?
Raw honey is honey which has not been pasteurized or filtered so it has all the beneficial nutrients still in tact. Most commercial honeys unfortunately have been heated at time of processing to facilitate storage in large commercial tanks. Raw honey is a treasure chest of vitamins and minerals and has been used for centuries in medicinal remedies, both internally and externally.

The list of honey’s beneficial functions is a long one. Honey increases calcium absorption; can increase hemoglobin count and treat or prevent anemia caused by nutritional factors; can help arthritic joints, when combined with apple cider vinegar; fights colds and respiratory infections of all kinds; can help to boost gastrointestinal ulcer healing; works as a natural and gentle laxative; aids constipation, allergies and obesity; provides an array of vitamins and minerals; and supplies instant energy without the insulin surge caused by white sugar.

Many have found raw honey helpful for its positive effects against allergies and hay fever, and one or two teaspoons last thing at night can help with insomnia. As an antiseptic, honey is also a drawing agent for poisons from bites or stings or infected wounds, and has outperformed antibiotics in treatments for stomach ulcerations, gangrene, surgical wound infections, surgical incisions and the protection of skin grafts, corneas, blood vessels and bones during storage and shipment.
