Benefits of Honey Water
So many times we’ve talked about the positive influence of honey, its application, recipes and diets, that it seems – just eat honey by a large spoon and already get benefit to your body. But no, there are still rules that enhance the effects of this sweet thing or reveal its miraculous properties to the full. Now I propose to talk about such a thaumaturgic and simple method of rejuvenation as drinking of honey water.
What is so unusual in the diluted honey? The matter is that the dissolution of raw honey in the raw water brings us a 30% honey solution, identical with the blood plasma by its composition. While drinking this water, there is an intensive absorption of all useful components of honey in our body cells. In simple terms, the honey water promotes the full absorption of all the nutrients of the honey components. This makes its use more valuable than just to dissolve honey in the mouth (the mouth cavity lacks enzymes for its complete digestion).
How to make it
The honey water will really bring benefit if you make it properly. Although – it’s very simple. Namely – take one teaspoon of honey dissolve in a glass of water (mix thoroughly). The honey water is ready. It is important to use only real raw honey, not pasteurized. The pasteurization of honey neutralizes all needed enzymes in it. Raw organic honey has the ability to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi, and protect our body from them. It contains all the necessary enzymes for living, vitamins and minerals, and is a powerful antioxidant, which means it increases immunity, helps in the prevention of cancer, slows down the aging process and enhances performance of the organism.
In addition, it is necessary to use only raw water, that is, any non-carbonated bottled water which is sold in bottles or tap water that has been purified by the filter.
To enhance the effect, you can add to the honey water 1 teaspoon of natural apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice.
How to use
It is necessary to drink the honey water immediately after the preparation, in the morning on an empty stomach as soon as you wake up (about 15 minutes before breakfast) and in the evening before going to bed (30 minutes before bedtime). It would be better if in the morning first you drink a glass of plain water, and then, a few minutes later, a glass of the honey water.
You can use the honey water by courses or to do it continuously – just include this wellness ritual into your morning food intake, as a habit.
