Benefits of local honey

Everyone knows that honey is good for you.  Almost everyone likes it.  Just some people know local honey is particularly good for you.  Why?  Read on....

Many people suffer from allergies these days.  Often these are perfectly natural, like hay fever which is an allergic reaction to pollen in the air.  These allergies can be a pain-in-the-neck but for most people it is no more than a small irritation.  Other allergies can be caused by dust, mould spores and other microscopic particles floating around in the atmosphere.  

By eating small but regular amounts of honey which is produced locally, it is very straight forward to build up an immunity to local hay fevers and other allergic reactions.

Raw honey has been used for thousands of years as a sweetener in food and drink; a good natural sweet taste.  Other qualities include having an anti inflammatory action, soothing respiratory problems

As pollens are relatively local, raw honey can help to treat respiratory problems because it has anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, qualities.  It is also said to have various anti cancer qualities which can inhibit the growth of some tumours.

Aside from the health benefits, supporting your local suppliers helps keeps them and their army of bees going - which I think is pretty important and collectively we should be supporting folks like C. Gorski.

Arguably the best benefit overall it that is it has a wonderful taste!
