Harmonious Organic Honey

Harmonious Organic Honey

Is there a buzzzz for organic honey? Who isn’t crazy for that sweet golden glow of delicious honey? At Betsy’s Best we take simply natural ingredients with functional food factors and pair them up for the most delicious combination, which is why we pair the sweetness of honey with cinnamon for extra health benefits!

The Health Benefits of Organic Honey

Honey has been used for decades as a natural sweetener, but beyond its nectar like taste it has a whole slew of health benefits. For example, honey can help boost the immune system because of its antioxidants and anti-bacterial properties. Manuka honey has been used to heal wounds because of the strong anti-microbial and antibiotic properties that are specific to the Manuka bush in New Zealand. Even regular honey has the power to calm a sore throat, clear acne prone skin, and help the GI system with its natural probiotics.

Cinnamon and Honey

Did you know that by just combining honey with cinnamon you gain a whole new array of health benefits? That’s a match made in heaven! The extra antioxidants of the cinnamon pack a powerful punch so that it can help reduce inflammation, help manage blood sugars, and boost the immune system. Pair this dynamic duo of organic honey and cinnamon with chia seeds, almonds, and pink Himalayan salt and you have Betsy’s Best Gourmet Almond Butter!

So the next time you see a bee, don’t run. Give it thanks for all of the hard work it does and the delicious taste it provides, because we would be at a loss without the bees.
