Medical and nutritional experts agree there is no doubt that raw, unfiltered honey is far superior to many other natural foods in terms of its health benefits to the human body.
Hundreds of clinical studies have proven the use of raw honey to treat and relieve conditions from cancer and high blood pressure to digestive problems, skin and hair issues.
Yet few people know that "raw honey water" multiplies the health potency of raw honey multiple times.
What is raw honey water? Simply put, raw honey water is raw honey mixed with... water.
A teaspoon of raw honey mixed into a glass of cool water makes raw honey water. If the honey is crystallised, use warm (not hot) water so it mixes easily.
Here are three amazing health benefits of drinking raw honey water on an empty stomach, such as first thing in the morning after sleep or after a long day of fasting.
1) Raw honey water flushes out toxins from a fasting body
When you eat a spoon of raw honey, the honey covers your tongue then gently glides down your food pipe, lining its walls with beneficial living enzymes, nutrients and good bacteria.
Since the honey is raw and unfiltered, unlike processed supermarket honey, it contains all its living nutrients.
But when the honey enters the stomach it settles into a corner until it leaves.
Now having this same spoon of raw honey mixed into a glass of water ensure that the beneficial nutrients reach all parts of the mouth, food pipe and more of the stomach. In the process, the raw honey destroys all the toxins it encounters.
The more food there is in the stomach, the less of the raw honey water reaches the stomach linings.
Imagine a dry flowerbed on which no rain has fallen for days. The first gush of water is rapidly absorbed by all parts of the soil which need it most.
Raw honey water is more rapidly absorbed by the body and more effective in flushing out toxins from the body.
2) Raw honey water floods a fasting body's bloodstream with beneficial nutrients
After a long day or night without food or water, the liver is empty and desperate for nutrients. Whatever enters the liver first gets first access to the bloodstream.
Imagine a line of customers waiting all night to enter a popular department store on the first day of its annual sale. Whoever gets in first gets first access to the best bargains.
Likewise, drinking a glass of raw honey water on an empty stomach ensures that the liver, and then the bloodstream, is flooded with beneficial living nutrients that destroy any harmful toxins they meet in their path.
3) Raw honey water aids healthy weight loss by flooding the intestines with good bacteria
The presence of harmful bacteria in the intestines does not just cause gas and bloating, it limits the ability of the body to properly absorb all the nutrients from food.
An unhealthy digestive system is one of the factors leading to excessive fat accumulation and obesity.
Drinking raw honey water on an empty stomach floods the empty intestines with "good" bacteria. This good bacteria multiplies in the intestines and kills any harmful bacteria present there.
This in turn purifies the digestive system and makes it more effective in absorbing the nutrients from food, leading to healthy weight loss.
And if the raw honey is also certified organic and the water mineral water, then this guarantees that no artifical chemicals enter the body at that critical stage.
