This dark brown honey is bottled in glass jar to keep its properties intact

In 1911 a bee culturist estimated that a quart (approx. 1 litre) of honey represented bees flying over an estimated 48,000 miles to gather the nectar needed to produce the honey.

  • As far as Ayurveda is concerned, our acharyas, who made this system of medicine, utilized Indian honey and tested the wild honey; hence any ayurvedic physician will prefer the Indian wild honey. The obvious reason for this is that honey bees are free to collect necatar from numerous herbs and rare plants, that are pollution and pesticides free.

  • Fresh honey increases body weight and is mild laxative, while old honey helps in decreasing body weight. Old honey is graahi (adsorbent), ruksha (dry), and medhanasaka (reduces fat). Old honey helps in metabolism of fats and scrapes kaphaOlder the honey, better it is. Some Ayurvedic experts recommend only old honey for medical treatment.

  • Storage method for honey is important. The fact that honey is hygroscopic, means that it has little water in its natural state but can easily suck in water if its exposed to it. If it does that, it could spoil. So the final key to honey remaining unspoiled is making sure it's well sealed and stored in a dry place. Glass jar precludes any contact with water and prevents any possible contamination from plastic/PET jars while being stored for longer duration.

General Properties:

  • Viscous: The viscosity of honey is affected greatly by both temperature and water content. The higher the humidity, the easier honey will flow.
  • Moisturizing: The bees mix the pollens and nectars and leave about 17% water. Foods prepared with honey stay moist & fresh longer than foods prepared with sugar. If exposed to moist air, its hydrophilic properties will pull moisture into the honey.
  • Energizing: Honey contains the simple sugars like glucose & fructose. It is assimilated into the body quickly and naturally, thus it is often used as a source of quick energy. Honey is mainly fructose (about 38.5%) and glucose (about 31.0%). The remaining carbohydrates include maltose, sucrose, and other complex carbohydrates.
  • Fat Free: Honey is a fat free food with ~60 calories per tablespoon. Also there are traces of protein in honey (pollen floating in the honey provides the protein).
  • Vitamins/Minerals etc: Honey contains wide arry of enzymes, vitamins & minerals in trace amounts.
  • Antioxidants: Honey has significant natural antioxidant properties. Antioxidants are important in staying healthy. Antioxidants help protect the skin from the damage of UV rays, and help you keep your skin looking young. The antioxidant called "pinocembrin" can be found only in honey.
  • Preservative qualities: Because of its unique composition and chemical properties, honey is suitable for long term storage and is easily assimilated even after long preservation. Honey has been preserved for decades and even centuries. It was reported that archaeologists found 2000 year old jars of honey in Egyptian tombs and they still tasted delicious! Bacteria cannot grow in honey although, all things being equal, bacteria loves sugar. This is because the unique chemical composition of low water content and relatively high acidic level in honey creates a low pH (3.2-4.5) environment that makes it very unfavourable for bacteria or other micro-organism to grow.

Ayurvedic/Medicinal Properties:

  • In ayurveda, honey is know by many names. The names differ from one region to the other. However, the most common names are madhu, makshika, madwikam, kshaudram, saradham, vantham, varadi, bringavantham and pushparasolbhavam.
  • Mainly used for the treatment of eye diseases, cough, thirst, phlegm, hiccups, blood in vomit, leprosy, diabetes, obesity, worm infestation, vomiting, asthma, diarrhoea and healing wounds. 
  • Also used as a vehicle along with some medicines to improve its efficacy or to mitigate the side effects of the other medicines it is mixed with. 
  • Also known to mitigate the increased kapha dosha.
  • Severe cold: Take one tablespoon honey with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder daily for 3 days. This will help clear the sinuses. (Daily use of honey and cinnamon powder also strengthens the immune system and protects the body from bacteria and viral attacks.)

    Persistent cough with mucous: Mix a pinch of black pepper with a teaspoonful of honey and lick the mixture from a spoon after meals. 

    Mix 2 teaspoons of honey with equal quantity of ginger juice. The concoction helps to expectorate mucus, providing relief for the common cold, coughs and sore throat.

    Eysight: Mix 2 teaspoons of honey with carrot juice and consume one hour before breakfast.

    Fat loss/Blood purification: 1 glass of warm water taken with 2 tea spoons of honey and 1 tea spoon of lemon juice in early morning.

  • Topical honey has been used successfully in a comprehensive treatment of diabetic ulcers when the patient cannot use topical antibiotics (http://www.news.wisc.edu/releases/13738)

Consumption:

Honey should not be heated or consumed warm as it causes toxic effect. Cold honey should always be preferred.
Honey can contain spores of Clostridium botulinum. This isn't harmful to adults and children over one year old, whose gastrointestinal tract is developed enough to deal with the spores, but children under one are at risk for infant botulism. So, always take doctor's advice while giving honey to infants.
Diabetic:
Clinical studies have shown that pure honey is a healthier choice for diabetics than sugar and other sweeteners due to its lower Glycaemic Index  i.e. it does not raise blood sugar levels as quickly as sugar. It also requires lower levels of insulin compared to regular white sugar. However, the key consideration is the total carbohydrates in one's diet and not the amount of sugar. One tablespoon of honey has approximately 17 grams of carbohydrate. Honey is higher in calories, and is sweeter than sugar. This way, one can add less honey to get the same sweetness. But make sure to first consult a doctor or dietician.
