Pure, unrefined, and unpasteurized honey packs all of the natural vitamins, enzymes, phytonutrients, and many other minerals to keep us nourished and glowing.
Although it must be used in moderation, considering its high fructose, honey can be a nutritious substitute for sugar, butter, or any flavoring. Also, be sure that the honey is raw and not refined, as chemically refined honey can destroy those natural enzymes, vitamins, and minerals that make honey so amazing. So embark on the beauty and health benefits that this flower nectar has to offer.
