Aromatic and warming, cinnamon has a long history of use in ayurvedic, Chinese and western herbal medicine. Though these herbal traditions use different types of cinnamon, the medicinal effects are similar. This spice can ease digestive discomfort – it improves poor appetite, aids digestion and can help to reduce bloating, cramping and flatulence. Cinnamon has an anti-fungal action and may be helpful for those with imbalanced digestive flora. There is evidence to suggest that cinnamon improves the insulin resistance associated with metabolic syndrome. However, people with diabetes should exercise caution and seek advice from their health care practitioner regarding honey consumption.
A welcome friend in the winter months, cinnamon stimulates the circulation, warming chilly fingers and toes, whilst its anti-microbial activity is beneficial during the season of coughs and colds.
Honey Lady honey is sourced from local South Australian beekeepers. The majority is sourced from the Fleurieu Peninsula, but it is seasonal and dependent upon availability. The beekeepers their honey is sourced from do not use chemicals or antibiotics to treat their bees, hives or equipment. Quite simply it is honey as nature intended.
Raw Honey will naturally crystallise and track (whitening of the honey) over time. This is an indication that your honey is raw as the enzymes that cause the candying process are still active. To return your honey to a liquid state, simply place your jar in warm water. All raw honey will have a top layer of particles of wax, propolis and bee pollen, another indication that the honey is undamaged by processing.
The differences between raw and pasteurised honey are substantial. Raw honey is an alkaline-forming food that contains natural vitamins, enzymes, powerful antioxidants and other important natural nutrients. These are the very nutrients that are destroyed during the heating and pasteurisation process. In fact, pasteurised honey is equivalent to, and just as unhealthy as, eating refined sugar.
Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections. Raw honey’s benefits don’t stop there. Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels, relieve pain, calm nerves, and it has been used to treat ulcers. Raw honey is also an expectorant and anti-inflammatory and has been known to effectively treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma.
