  • Prevention and treatment of internal conditions. Avocado honey helps in insomnia, detoxifies the body, fuels the brain, supports immunity, helps with cough (with coffee for adults and with milk for children) and many others.

  • Heals skin conditions. When applied to the skin, honey may serve as a barrier to moisture and keep skin from sticking to dressings. Honey may also provide nutrients and other chemicals that speed wound healing.

  • Nutritious. Avocado honey is especially good for anaemia and calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium or phosphorus deficiency.

  • Having a balanced food intake. Avocado honey is not recommended for people with chronic kidney disease or kidney failure. Healthy people should also avoid high phosphorus intake and be aware that this type of honey contains phosphorus. Excess leads to cardiovascular disease, kidney problems and bone health concerns. Please note that you will need much more than a whole jar of honey per day to reach a high dose of phosphorus. But if you add it to other food containing it, it is possible to reach that limit.

It helps curing sunburns as well, and it does these things with little to no scarring. Forest honey is an antiseptic too and prevents the growth of harmful microorganisms.

Polyflora honey

  • Contains nectar and pollen from multiple species of flowering plants, reuniting their flavour characteristics into an authentic aromatic profile.

  • The taste may vary from year to year, and the flavour and aroma can be more or less intense, depending on which bloomings are prevalent.

Benefits of Polyflora honey

 

  • Richer in antioxidants. Generally the darker the colour, the more pigments it contains and many natural pigments also exert antioxidant effects. Polyfloral varieties have been found to have stronger antioxidant action than lighter-coloured honeys.

  • Natural remedy for cough and sore throat. Eating the raw honey helps form a protective barrier over throat lining, preventing further irritation. This helps soothe throat soreness and calms cough. However, to produce its benefits, the honey has to be raw, unprocessed and unheated. This means that if we add it to tea, we should first let the tea cool down to room temperature because heat destroys the beneficial properties of honey in general.

  • Good for gastritis and stomach upset. Eating raw polyfloral honey is said to help calm stomach upset and relieve irritation of the stomach lining, potentially helping improve gastritis. The natural sugars in polyfloral honey boast mild prebiotic properties, helping improve transit time and regulating digestion.

  • Strong immune-boosting properties. As polyfloral honey is rich in different pollen types, it exhibits immune-modulating activity, more exactly it stimulates the immune system to respond better to infection and disease. Pollen does this by increasing vitamin C content in the immune system organs that produce white blood cells, by reducing inflammation and exerting antioxidant and antibiotic properties.

  • Nutritious. Contains Vitamin B and C, calcium, iron phosphorus and other elements like enzymes and amino acids.
