Are you feeling low on energy? Want to lose that extra weight, those oozing inches or that annoying double chin ? Do you tend to catch cold easily? If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions, then Don’t Worry! Honey is there to rescue you!
Recently, I got an invitation to be a part of Dabur Honey Diet Blogger Meet organized by Indiblogger, at Zuri Hotel, Whitefield Bangalore on 4th of July 2015. Celebrity nutritionist Pooja Makhija from Mumbai was the Chief Guest to bedazzle the stage with her beauty and brain! She enlightened us about the importance and usage of honey in our day to day diet.

What were Pooja’s suggestions?
People go for crazy food fad to loose weight like the tapeworm diet, feeding tube diet, air diet, cotton ball diet etc. But, instead of going for these kind of dangerous diet practice, they can embrace honey diet in their day to day routine. She advised not to starve our body, but instead, to split our meal into 6 small meals, which is ideal for healthy lifestyle. If we starve, we actually loose muscle and not the fat. So in order to loose fat, we should follow a proper diet, without skipping meals and doing exercise regularly.
One tsp honey with a glass of warm water within 30 minutes of our waking up in the morning can help loosing weight to some extent. Besides, we should eat our breakfast within the first hour of rising, to jump start our metabolism, ideally. This small practice in our food habit or lifestyle can bring lot of positive changes in our life.

About the Product and it's Popularity :
So, what makes honey so popular? It's blending ease with which it can be consumed. One can take honey directly, or put it on bread like a jam, mix it with juice or any drink instead of sugar, or mix it with warm water, lime juice, cinnamon and other herbs to make a medicine too.
This healthy natural sweetener offers many nutritional and medicinal value for centuries. Raw honey is the unpasteurized version of commonly used honey. A tablespoon of raw honey contains 64 calories, is fat-free, cholesterol-free, and sodium-free, says the National Honey Board. Its composition is roughly 80 percent carbohydrates, 18 percent water, and two percent vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.
Honey’s scientific super powers contribute to its vastly touted health benefits for the whole body.
1. Alleviates Allergies
Honey’s anti-inflammatory effects and ability to soothe coughs has led to the belief that it can reduce seasonal allergy symptoms.
2. All-Natural Energy Drink
Honey is an excellent source of all-natural energy at just 17 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon. This natural unprocessed sugar — fructose and glucose — directly enter the bloodstream and can deliver a quick boost of energy. The rise in blood sugar acts as a short-term energy source for your workout, especially in longer endurance exercises.
3. Boosts Memory
The sweet nectar is loaded in antioxidants that may help prevent cellular damage and loss within the brain. A 2011 study published in Menopause found a daily spoonful of honey may boost postmenopausal women’s memory, which can provide an alternative therapy for the hormone-related intellectual decline.
4. Cough Suppressant
Honey can be the all-natural cure when it comes to pesky colds. The golden liquid’s thick consistency helps coat the throat while the sweet taste is believed to trigger nerve endings that protect the throat from incessant coughing.
5. Sleep Aid
Honey can be a health aid for sleepless nights. Similar to sugar, honey can cause a rise in insulin and release serotonin — a neurotransmitter that improves mood and happiness.
6. Treats Dandruff
Honey can bring temporary relief to the scalp by targeting dandruff. Honey has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties, which address the redness and itching on the scalp.
7. Treats Wounds And Burns
Honey is a natural antibiotic that can act both internally and externally. It can be used as a conventional treatment for wounds and burns by disinfecting wounds.
Typically, honey is sweet but can be cruel to infants sometimes. Spores of Clostridium botulinum bacteria — found in dirt and dust, which can contaminate honey — may lead to infant botulism and produce a toxin inside the body that can cause muscle weakness and breathing problems. The Mayo Clinic recommends waiting until after 12 months of age to give infants honey; consumption is safe for older adults and kids, since they have a mature digestive system that can handle the spores.
So, consume honey responsibly and reap the numerous health benefits of this liquid gold.
