Which chronic illnesses can honey help to treat?

Before doing any tests, one basic and incredibly straightforward way to answer the question “how to check the purity of honey” is to read the label on the packaging. Manufacturers are required to specify the additives and additional ingredients used in the production of the honey. However, we recommend you to learn how to spot between fake and pure honey.

There are 4 tips on how to check the authenticity of honey at home:

  1. The thumb test
    • Drop a small dollop of honey on your thumb
    • Check to see if it spills or spreads around
    • If it spreads, it is not pure
    • Pure honey will stay intact on your thumb
  1. The water test
    • Fill a glass with water
    • Add one tablespoon of honey into the glass
    • Adulterated or artificial honey will dissolve around the glass in the water.
    • Pure honey will settle right at the bottom of your glass.
  1. The flame tests
    • Take a dry matchstick
    • Dip its tip right into the honey
    • Strike the stick on the matchbox as if to light it
    • If the honey is pure, the matchstick will light with ease
    • The flame will also keep burning off the honey
    • However, if it is with impurities, it will not light because fake honey contains moisture as one of the impurities

Another common method to tell the difference is as follows:

  • Add some water and 2-3 drops of vinegar into the honey and mix well. If the solution becomes foamy, that is adulterated honey.
Is honey good for treating acne and dry skin?

Yes, honey is good for treating existing acne and preventing future acne. Honey is known to have natural antibacterial and calming qualities owing to its enzymatic production of hydrogen peroxide. It is also a natural hydrating moisturizer, good for dry skin. Applying a bit of honey onto the skin can deliver a soothing effect, fight free radical damage and pollution with its antioxidant properties & smooth and soften the complexion.

How can honey work the same as antibiotics?

Antibiotics are used to kill bacteria growth. Honey contains hydrogen peroxide which may account for some of its antibacterial properties. It also has a high natural sugar content, which can help to stop the growth of certain bacteria.

Can pollen allergy individuals consume honey?

Avoid honey if you are allergic to pollen. This is because honey is made from pollen that can cause an allergic reaction.

My honey crystallized. What does this mean? Is it expired?

Crystallized honey is normal and is not a sign of expiration. When honey crystallizes, it means the honey is real and not pasteurized. Pure honey won’t change its taste or smell even after it crystallizes.

Tips:  Put your honey jar into warm water and stir well. The process will de-crystallize the honey and make it viscous again. (Don’t use hot water since high heat can damage the honey. Always de-crystallize honey in a glass jar.)

Is honey vegan?

No. Vegans often avoid consuming honey to take a stand against bee exploitation and farming practices that are thought to harm bee health.

How can honey help in weight loss?

Honey does not directly contribute to weight loss, but it acts as a natural fuel to enforce the liver to produce glucose. This glucose keeps the brain sugar levels high and forces it to release fat-burning hormones. When you start replacing white sugars with honey, you are re-balancing the brain signal which will ultimately help you restrain from consuming more sweets.

Does honey expire?

Natural, properly preserved honey will not expire. The sugar content and the low pH level in honey, as well as the bee’s honey-making process, do not allow other spoiling organisms to survive in honey.

Can honey cure COVID-19?
At the moment, there is no specific treatment to fight off the Corona-virus. However, many of the symptoms can be treated and appropriate treatments are given based on the patient’s clinical condition. However, the consumption of honey can positively increase the immune system, which may prevent oneself from getting infected easily.
If I eat honey alongside prescribed medicines, will there be any side effects?

There may be side effects if you eat honey alongside prescribed medicine. For example:

  • Medications that slow blood clotting (Anticoagulant / Antiplatelet drugs) – Honey might slow blood clotting. In theory, taking honey along with medications that also slow clotting might increase the chances of bruising and bleeding.
  • Some examples of medication that slow blood clotting include such as aspirin.
  • Some medication is broken down by the liver – Taking honey alongside medicines that are broken down by the liver may cause the liver to take more time to breakdown medications and may cause side effects from the medications. Before consuming honey, talk to your health-care provider if you are taking any medication that is broken down by the liver.

What should I do if I show allergy symptoms after consuming BeeBudz®?

While honey has some natural health benefits such as natural healing treatment, antioxidant, antimicrobial, and common remedy for cough, based on what is stated on healthline.com with the topic Honey as an allergen, it’s also possible for some people to develop an allergic reaction to it. When honey is produced, it can be mixed with bee pollen and pollen from other plants and trees. If you’re allergic to pollen, you may experience allergic reactions to some types of honey. In many cases, this makes pollen the allergen, rather than the honey itself.

Symptoms from a honey allergy may resemble common pollen allergy symptoms, such as a runny nose, swelling, rashes, and more. Symptoms may vary depending on the severity of your allergy. Eating honey or skin coming into contact with honey can trigger an allergic reaction. In more severe cases, if you begin to experience irregular symptoms after consuming honey, schedule a visit with your doctor. As with many allergens, not receiving treatment can cause serious complications.

Furthermore, honey has the potential to carry Clostridium bacteria, which is commonly found in dirt and dust. If young children ingest Clostridium, the bacteria can multiply in their intestines and affect their nervous system. This condition is known as infant botulism. Though rare, it can cause life-threatening complications. These include muscle weakness and breathing issues. It can also be fatal. If your infant begins to show any of these irregular symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

In conclusion, an allergic reaction to honey may also be an indication of an underlying allergy to pollen or another substance. Since Beebudz® Honey is made of multi-floral honey, pollen substances might be included. If you’re unsure whether you’re allergic to honey, the best treatment is to avoid it. Discuss your symptoms and concerns with your doctor to prevent any adverse reactions.

You can treat your symptoms with a common over-the-counter antihistamine like Benadryl. If your symptoms worsen or don’t improve after an hour, seek immediate medical attention.
