Raw, Unfiltered, Astragalus Honey from Oregon in Darling Glass Bear Jar
Bees gather a resin substance on the leaf buds of trees. They then transform it into propolis which works to disinfect the beehive, seal cracks, build panels, and serves as a micro-biocidal agent. It is also used to embalm bigger intruders otherwise difficult to expel. Propolis keeps the beehive pure even though it's warm temperature and high humidity make it a perfect environment for bacteria. Propolis is in raw honey and when you consume it, you get all the benefits as it stimulates your own immune system. Bee Propolis not only helps prevent the formation of plaque on your teeth (who'd have thought?!), but it is now being studied for its potential to control tumor growth.
Propolis in deposited in the honey, making honey an antioxidant, anti-microbial, anesthetic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory. As far as I know, there is no antioxidant in a food greater than that in bee propolis. No wonder honey has been used as a medicine for thousands of years.
These adorable glass honey bear jars are ready to ship so you can have all the benefits of this super-flavorful, raw, unheated, unprocessed honey on your kitchen counter. Add it to your hot drinks (after drink has cooled enough to drink comfortably) or simply eat a spoonful a day. This honey is from hives where the bees gathered pollen from the surrounding Astragalus flowers. Astragalus has long been used in ancient Chinese medicine for the treatment of stress, cancer, diabetes, and colds, and more recently, auto-immune and heart disease.
