The Healing Power of Raw Honey

Here is an interesting tip for you. Unheated, raw honey turns alkaline in the body. Honey has been known for a very long time to be antibacterial, antimicrobial and has tremendous healing power. One of the reasons for this is that honey, when left unheated and raw, breaks down into hydrogen peroxide inside the body. C6H12O6 + H2O + O2 → C6H12O7 + H2O2 (glucose oxidase reaction) is the chemical equation. Honey has an enzyme called glucose oxidase. When it reaches our internal bodily fluids plus oxygen, it releases from honey. This enzyme, however, is destroyed in the presence of heat. Sources suggest to always buy raw unheated honey and to never heat honey or cook with it.

Have a great day!
