Hi There, Fellow Gardeners!
This is AnnahMarie.
Today, Organic Gurlz Gardens of Fort Wayne, Indiana will be sharing information on the Health Benefits of Honey.
Honey. A famed delectable fluid which amps the flavors of tea, carries a jar-full of benefits, and is the artwork of our little friends named bees. Organic Gurlz Gardens is here to share info how honey is made and a few awesome uses for the pasty solution.
How Honey is Made
Of course, bees make honey, but how does the process actually take place?
Well, it all starts with a little worker bee who harvests some nectar from a flower. Aside from nectar sticking to their “legs”, the pollinators have a second stomach – just for honey! After the bee has its “fill” of nectar, it heads back to the honeycomb headquarters to pass along the sticky substance to other worker bees. The pollen is then “chewed” to release essential honey-making sugars. Finally, the new solution is stored inside the cells of the honeycomb to evolve into honey.
**Fun fact from O.G.G. – Honey is said to be non-perishable!**
Benefits of Honey
Now that you know how honey is made, you are probably wondering the benefits of the delicious dressing. We at Organic Gurlz Gardens have a few interesting pros to share…
Have many glared at you during a movie because you have an all-to-pesky cough? Well, don’t fret – this thick liquid packs a punch – to your cough, that is. Although unproven, honey is said to assist with that annoying cough and put your throat at ease. So let yourself (and others) enjoy that epic movie!
Fun fact from O.G.G. – The darker the honey, the more antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties the gooeyness contains!
As many have experienced, inflammation in the joints can be quite painful. When we at Organic Gurlz Gardens are undergoing inflammation, we turn to the awesome powers of honey. Just supplementing a tablespoon of honey into the regular morning tea may reduce swelling.
**Fun fact from O.G.G. – Honey Bees have FIVE eyes!**
