1. It is best to use hon­ey 2–3 times a day for half an hour — an hour before meals. If you do not have such an oppor­tu­ni­ty, at least start your day with a spoon­ful of hon­ey dis­solved in a glass of plain water. This invig­o­rat­ing drink will help “start” your body in the morn­ing.

2. Ide­al dose for an adult, 100–150 grams of hon­ey per day, which is about three table­spoons, and for chil­dren 30–40 grams (incom­plete table­spoon).

3. Hon­ey includes over 100 vit­a­mins and min­er­als. In addi­tion, all these ele­ments nec­es­sary for the body are stored in hon­ey for much longer than in fresh veg­eta­bles and fruits.

4. Taste, col­or, com­po­si­tion and con­sis­ten­cy of hon­ey depends not only on the flow­ers from which it was col­lect­ed, but also on the com­po­si­tion of the soil, cli­mate and even alti­tude. Sci­en­tists empha­size polyflo­ral hon­ey, i.e. col­lect­ed from var­i­ous types of plants, which has the strongest antibi­ot­ic prop­er­ty.

5. Hon­ey is def­i­nite­ly bet­ter than can­dy., sug­ar and jam. It is eas­i­er to digest, does not irri­tate mucous tis­sues and has a calm­ing effect.

6. Hon­ey is a high-calo­rie prod­uct. But if we com­pare the calo­rie con­tent of hon­ey (about 320 calo­ries per 100 grams) and the same choco­late (550 calo­ries), hon­ey is still the cham­pi­on. In addi­tion, you can’t eat a lot of hon­ey, but it’s very easy to get car­ried away and eat a whole bar of choco­late at a time.

7. Chil­dren are often sus­cep­ti­ble diathe­sis after drink­ing hon­ey. But this can only hap­pen if the child is prone to aller­gies or many times exceeds the pre­scribed norm. A well-known folk con­nois­seur and con­nois­seur of “medother­a­py” Dr. Jarvis advis­es giv­ing hon­ey even to babies, argu­ing that hon­ey relieves stom­ach pains, being quick­ly absorbed in the body.

8. Choos­ing good hon­ey — this is a spe­cial art, which you can com­pre­hend with time. But you will remem­ber a few gen­er­al rules with­out dif­fi­cul­ty. First of all, you need to pay atten­tion to its appear­ance: good hon­ey should be thick and vis­cous. You can add a cou­ple of drops of iodine to an aque­ous solu­tion of hon­ey. The blue col­or of the result­ing liq­uid will tell you that the hon­ey was weight­ed with starch or flour before being sold.

9. Hon­ey keeps well in glass and enam­eled dish­es, but in no case pour it into iron or gal­va­nized con­tain­ers. The room where hon­ey is stored should be well ven­ti­lat­ed, dry and dark.

10. Sug­ary med­i­cine does not lose its prop­er­ties, and you can melt it in a steam bath. Just make sure that the tem­per­a­ture does not rise above 45 degrees, oth­er­wise it will lose its ben­e­fi­cial prop­er­ties.
