What does "raw" mean?
Raw honey comes straight from the beehive. It is unheated and unpasteurized, meaning it contains all of the original vitamins, nutrients, and enzymes nature intended. Furthermore, raw honey does not contain additives such as high-fructose corn syrup or preservatives. Raw honey has an indefinite shelf life, meaning if stored properly, it will never spoil. Lastly, it is an excellent remedy for seasonal allergies, particularly if bought or made locally. Honey naturally consists of small doses of local flora allergens; consuming these allergens helps your body build immunity to local, seasonal allergies. Another natural and effective anti-allergy remedy is raw pollen, which you can read more about here.

Health Benefits of Raw Honey
Low Glycemic Index
Raw honey has a glycemic index of 30, which is low compared to other sweeteners such as glucose (96) and sucrose (64). Foods that are lower on the glycemic index are not as likely to cause spikes in bloog sugar levels, and will leave you feeling fuller and satiated for longer.
Rich in Antioxidants
Anitbacterial & Antifungal
Raw honey is an effective and natural way to prevent infection in open cuts, wounds, and burns due to its antibacterial properties. Likewise, honey can be used to balance candida levels in the body, as it is antifungal. (Just be sure you are purchasing raw honey, as the pasteurization process tends to eliminate these properties.)
It’s not just an old wives tale: raw honey is great for soothing sore throats, coughs, and even fevers (particularly mixed with a bit of lemon juice, or in some hot tea). To compliment its antibacterial and antifungal properties that help fight infections, honey has a soothing consistency and a yummy taste.
