Honey contains active enzymes that convert starch to dextrin’s (diastase) and sucrose into glucose and fructose (invertase). These enzymes are complex proteins that increase the rate of biochemical reactions and convert to energy. Honey proteins originate from the nectar of flowers, pollen, and the secretions from the honeybee’s cephalic glands. Honey can help treat gastric complications naturally as it contains methylglyoxal, which can assist in fighting off harmful bacteria in the digestive tract and stomach. A natural antioxidant and blood cleanser, Honey contains organic phenolic compounds like flavonoids and pinocembrin, unique to honey and bee propolis. Honey has 18 amino acids such as proline in addition to trace elements of Vitamin C, Vitamin B, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium, Zinc and Riboflavin.
In addition to collecting nectar from the anthers of flowers, Honeybees also collect Propolis sap which is the resin from tree buds that make this thick & sweet liquid. Raw honey is extracted from the cells of honeycombs and an average hive can produce 65 pounds of honey.
