No this is not about my Honey, Solar...


Honey has been around forever (8,000+ years) and there is no denying its health benefits.  I personally have used it for sweetening my hot tea, on a burn, as a facial, and even on my hair. (That one was very sticky.)

But there are so many other things honey may be useful for.

Honey health benefits includes controlling cholesterol level, managing diabetes, treating gastric problems, fighting infections, boosting energy, preventing nausea, promoting weight loss, promoting restful sleep, fighting asthma, removing dandruff, and enhancing skin health.

Honey isn't just delicious and sweet in taste, but nature has packed it with countless health benefits. You won't believe that a substance that works fine as a sweetener and can treat a number health problems including, cold and cough, weight loss and even cardiovascular health.

What is Honey?
Humans found honey about 8,000 years ago and haven't stopped using it since then. It was widely utilized in Greece and Egypt. And later it became a mandatory component for Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine. This miraculous substance possesses healing properties that makes it a natural healer. It is a secret ingredient for countless home remedies as well. You can consume or mix honey with other spices, herbs, and water to get the most of it.

1. Honey controls Cholesterol

3. It Treats Gastric Problems
4. Honey for Infections
5. It Boosts Energy
6. It Prevents Nausea
7. Honey for Weight Loss
8. It Promotes Sleep

There are definitely some on this list that I never considered.  Maybe it is time to try some new ones.

Thanks for this post.

I am a diabetic and I often use honey on my oatmeal, however, diabetics need to monitor their carb intake to prevent their glucose level from spiking. We use raw honey that has 17g of carbs in a tbsp. I use about .5 tsp on oatmeal along with stevia which has <1g of carbs.

I could see that as a balancing act for a diabetic.  I use Stevia in my coffee along with a "nut" creamer.  I have both packets (Splenda-stevia) and liquid stevia.  Really do like it for that. Toy

Not a lactose free person, but I am sugar free. 
For sweeteners, I prefer liquid sucralose.  I buy 16 oz bottles for about 30 bucks.  7 drops sweetens a 24 oz tea. 
I don't mind the sucralose with erythritol, but the powdered Splenda has Maltodextrin, which is not healthy, IMHO.
For a creamer, you should try MCT Oil Powder. Some brands call it Keto Creamer. I pay 30 bucks for a two month supply.  Creams well, with very little taste.  Provides Omega 3 Fatty Acids, and has an energy boost that is real, not phony like energy drinks.  It has numerous health benefits including staving off Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
You can buy smaller portions to try it out.  Start slow.  The energy boost can be surprisingly potent.

I do have and use Keto creamer (vanilla flavored) I usually buy mine at Ross or TJ Max for around $6-8 a bag.  As to the Splenda Naturals I use it is strictly Stevia leaf with erythritol. 

I also use collagen in my first cup of the day.  That extra boost of protein for me.  Toy

The MCT oil powder is the difference.  I swear by this stuff. 
I can't eat Stevia.  Bitter, and I am sensitive to it. 
I use liquid Sucralose(Splenda) in drinks, Erythritol for 90% of my cooking, and ALlulose/Erythritol for baking.  Certain things call for Monkfruit sweetener.  Very few.
If you can, pick up some MCT oil powder.  Odorless, tasteless and mixes fairly easily.  I think you'll like the effects.  Some folks I know say it helps the sleep, others say it thwarts their fatigue.  Curbs my appetite, adds essential fatty acids, and gives me a Jolt of energy, but not the "cheap" kind.

I do have MCT oil - I use it in smoothies and sometimes coffee if I am doing a late cup.  Toy
