3 key health benefits of honey are related to the fact that

 1. Honey is nature’s energy booster  


2. Honey is a great immunity system builder 


3. Honey is a natural remedy for many ailments 



Energy Booster – honey is a great source of natural carbohydrates which are known for  effectiveness  in instantly boosting performance, endurance and muscle fatigue/tiredness. Even a spoon of honey will keep you going that extra mile inshallah. It contains glucose and fructose which are naturally occurring sugars in fruit, vegetable, grains and honey, the glucose is absorbed quickly to give a natural high

 of energy  while the fructose is slow release to give a more sustained energy 

Boost Immune System  –Honey’s antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties can help improve digestive system and help you stay healthy and fight disease

Before we go into specific ailment I would just like to mention here the Islamic perspective on honey

A man came to the prophet salah al alaihi wa salem and said ” my brother is suffering in  his belly” another narration said “his belly is loose”.

 The prophet told him “give him honey to dr

ink”. the man went away and  retuned ad said

” I have dosed him but it has done him  no good” another narration said” it has only increased his diarrhea”.

This took place two or three times, and each time the prophet said

” give him honey.”

on the third or fourth occasion he said

“god  has spoken , but your brothers belly has lied”. in

  shih of Muslim  we read: your brothers belly is a disordered state(‘ariba)meaning his digestion was corrupt and his stomach was weak.

Bukhari, Tibb, 4, 24

Honey contains great benefits and removed impuri

ties from the veins, the intestines and elsewhere. It dissolves moisture when it is eaten and removes excess phlegm in old people and those of cold moist temperament, this issue of temperament is something that we in the west know very little about unless we are privy to Arabic books on this subject or have study Ayurvedic medicine.

Honey is a preservative for meats, fruits and oitments. It was also preserve dead bodies and its known as ” the trustworthy preserver” mashallah!

Nits and lice…it kills them when the skin or hair is anointed with honey…that’s interesting for mums with tiny ones at school or play group. It can lengthen enhance and soften hair.
