Tip of the Week: Sweeten your day with honey

Honey is widely known as a sweetener but it has an even sweeter history. Did you know that Ancient Olympic athletes enjoyed the benefits of honey believing it aided in the reoperation of muscles?  Mothers use a tea spoon as an antiseptic and to help reduce a baby’s cough. Mixing it with a cup of warm water every morning can aid in weight loss.  Honey is generally absorbed in the body with in 10 minutes of ingesting it and can give a great boost of energy. When it comes to skin care honey actually attracts moisture to the  skin and locks it in. Whether you use it to help  with digestion, as part of a skin care regime, or add to your tea, honey will sweeten your day!
