Raw Wild Forest Honey - also known as Honeydew honey.
Honey gathered from the pollution-free forests.
What color is Wild Forest Honey? The honey has a distinct appearance and is generally medium to dark amber, with greenish and brownish highlights. The variety has a thick consistency, being particularly dense, a trait which contributes to its popularity.
Honeydew Honey contains complex sugars called Oligosaccharides which research shows may support and strengthen good intestinal bacteria and digestive functions. These Oligosaccharides may be especially beneficial to people suffering from colitis or those taking antibiotics which are renowned for killing all the good bacteria in the intestinal tract.
Honeydew Honey also contains higher levels of antioxidants compared to other floral honeys.
It is a very rare form of honey that is produced only in few parts of world!
Harvest time : mid Summer.
Caution: Do not feed honey to infants under one year old.
Raw Wild Forest Honey
While Manuka Honey is extremely well-known for its healing properties,
Wild Forest Honey may also offer some excellent health benefits. It contains much higher levels of complex sugars called Oligosaccharides than nectar (or floral) honey.
Research shows that the human digestive system has a hard time breaking down Oligosaccharides. Almost 90% escapes digestion in the small intestine and reaches the colon where it performs a different function; that of a prebiotic. Prebiotics support the growth of certain kinds of bacteria in the colon. These bacteria produce many beneficial substances including short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) and certain B-vitamins. There is also evidence they may promote further absorption of minerals that have escaped the small intestine like calcium and magnesium. Research into SCFAs is quite new but shows possible benefits include protecting colon tissue from damage including colon cancer and ulcerative colitis, lower cholesterol, lower triglycerides, and improved immune system function.
Honeydew Honey also contains higher levels of antioxidants and minerals compared to other floral honeys.
A study published in 2014 shows that people with chronic leg ulcers who were treated with Honeydew honey experience a significant decrease of the average wound area and nearly three quarters of patients reported a decrease in pain levels. Based on the findings of this research, honeydew honey has the potential to be one of the medical-grade honeys.
