Benefits of Honey

One could go on and on about the benefits of honey. It is one of our most powerful healing foods.

It can kill bacteria and disinfect wounds and sores. It can boost our energy . . . and build our immunity. Honey can improve our mood. It can stimulate our brain for memory and learning ability. One of the most soothing benefits of honey is that it can even help you sleep!

One tablespoon of honey contains 64 calories and 17 grams of carbohydrates.
