I have written about the benefits of honey before but I liked this article, from the Deccan chronicle, because of the idea of a cleansing tonic. Water, lemon juice and a little honey. I use Manuka honey that is unpasteurized. Read on…..

Honey is Energy Booster

Nature’s energy booster is a wonderfully rich, golden liquid that is a natural yet delicious alternative to white sugar. This miraculous creation, a product of honey bees, has over the last thousand years been considered one of the best home remedies in the world.

Honey comes in different types — jamun honey which comes from the jamun tree and is useful for diabetics, eucalyptus honey which is useful for treating colds. The varieties are endless.

Why not just start your day with this cleansing tonic? Just mix it in lemon juice and a cup of warm water.

Available through the year, honey is an antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral creation. The benefit of honey depends on the quality of the honey you use. My advice would be to choose organic honey. Its natural fruit sugars play an important role in preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose in the honey is absorbed by the body and this instantly increases your energy levels.

It also keeps your blood sugar level fairly constant as compared to white sugar. Honey contains vitamin C, iron and calcium. Its anti-bacterial properties protect you from various infections and its antimicrobial properties prevent you from catching infections. Jamun honey with lemon juice controls blood sugar levels. Honey and turmeric soothe a sore throat. Honey also helps you relax as it calms the nerves. Water with lemon and honey aids digestion.
