Raw, organic honey is great at giving an often-needed energy boost, thanks to its sweet carbohydrates. Honey's also great at relieving sore throats, morning sickness, and bladder infections. Though it should be thought of as a regular sweetner, raw honey is much healthier than refined sugars dextrose and sucrose.

Selection Process

When buying honey, look for pure, unheated, unprocessed and unpasteurized honey. The honey found most commonly in supermarkets is regular, or commercial, honey, which has been heated and has lost many of its best nutrients.
