Producer of the Week: Southern Berks Bee Keepers

This week, we welcome Southern Berks Bee Keepers back to the market. You’ll want to pay them a visit and pick up a jar of their natural honey.

Here’s why…

A research study released in September of this year in the Malaysian Journal of Medical Sciences highlighted the significant health values of natural honey. In particular, the study’s authors cited the therapeutic use of natural honey to enhance dental health, treat eye disorders, and reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. The researchers also write about “honey as a natural cancer ‘vaccine’” based on its anti-inflammatory properties and high antioxidant qualities.

Adults aren’t the only ones who can benefit from natural honey’s preventative effects and healing abilities. The authors of the study also acknowledge the health benefits of natural honey on children. They state, “Some studies have shown that honey-nourished infants have improved memory and enhanced growth, as well as being less anxious and showing better performance as they grow.”

So, while you may have only considered natural honey a wonderful sweetener for your tea, think again. It’s a valuable complementary and alternative medicine for a wide number of health concerns.
