Love honey? You’re not alone.
The good news is that it's also really good for you!
Honey is a highly complex food source and when taken regularly as part of a balanced diet it can help improve your digestive health and well being, help fight the free radicals which cause disease and premature ageing, aid in prevention and recovery of colds and sore throats.
Honey is a superb carbohydrate source giving you a sustained energy boost and its composition is so unique it can also help to relax you and aid sleep.
