What is Honey?

Honey is a dense, golden liquid made by bees using the nectar from flowers. Nectar is removed from the flowers by the bees and then regurgitated into other bees until it is deposited into a honeycomb.

Honey has a history of medicinal uses: it was employed by the ancient Egyptians to dress wounds and for embalming purposes. Moreover, the ancient Greeks thought that honey improved their duration of life. Nowadays, honey is used primarily for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities, and is considered to be a natural remedy with a variety of uses and benefits for everyday health.


Honey is antibacterial and anti-fungal and has often been used by athletes as part of their recovery process. Buckwheat honey is often used to soothe coughs and enable a sounder sleep when struggling with a cough.

Honey is also noted for its diverse vitamin and mineral content, which includes niacin, riboflavin, calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc.
