There is one "sugar" that — in its raw form — contains a highly concentrated dose of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that help
nourish and revitalize your body. And it possesses unique anti-microbial properties that help you fight off infections
This "life-giving" sugar is not only an alternative to standard sweeteners, but also to treat life-threatening diseases, heal chronic
conditions, and keep people looking and feeling their best.
Throughout history, honey has been used to treat…………
Coughs, Wounds, Indigestion, Skin infections Fatigue Flu's, Burns, And more! Honey was the most popular ancient Egyptian healing remedy
Hippocrates (the father of modern medicine) used honey as a treatment for pain, dehydration, and fever. And this isn't just some "folk
remedy" discredited by modern science either.
Honey has three critical healing effects
First, honey supports your immune system and fights off harmful bacteria. Fighting off this threat is key to staying healthy.
One of the vital components in honey is an enzyme called glucose oxidase. This enzyme, when exposed to oxygen, produces hydrogen peroxide
-- a strong acid that dissolves the cell walls of bacteria. (Most human cells have thicker cell walls and can resist the low amounts of acid
This makes honey a powerful tool for fighting skin infections, healing wounds, and otherwise supporting your immune system.
Second, it supplies the "building blocks" for healthy cells. Honey equips your body with a complex array of proteins, enzymes, minerals,
vitamins, antioxidants, and other nutrients. The second these nutrients hit your body, they go to work...
Tuning up your heart, lungs, stomach, brain, eyes, and skin...
Controlling cancer-causing free-radicals and stopping cell damage in its tracks...
Detoxifying your body of harmful pollutants and other toxins.
However, honey still has a very high sugar content (70%-85% depending on the type of honey you get.) And as just about any health official
will tell you, sugar is a major cause of obesity, diabetes, and all the other chronic illnesses we see in abundance today. So shouldn't we
avoid honey despite its anti-microbial and nutritional properties?
Well, that brings us to the third healing effect of honey.
You've probably experienced just how rapidly most sugar burns in your body -- how it gives you a sudden surge of energy followed shortly by a complete crash.
Yet when you eat honey, you don't get that same "flare effect". Instead you get a slow, even burn of energy -- which you can put to use
for things like working, playing sports, or spending time with your family.
That's because all the extra enzymes and nutrients in honey not only help the body rebuild itself -- they also regulate how the body
uses the sugar.
Without the "burn-control" you normally get when you eat sugar that's part of a whole food, the body can't control the fire. And so we end up with...
Weak immune systems
POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE ASPECTS of sugar depends on two critical factors...
How much sugar you consume.
What kind of sugar you eat.

"Natural" Sugars VS Refined White Sugar
Consumed in moderation, sugar is a helpful source of energy. That is... provided you get it from the right sources.
Best way to get our sugar is by eating whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and yes, even honey. Your body knows how to extract the
maximum benefit from these whole foods.
Refined white sugar: Refined white sugar is completely stripped of all nutritional value, and provides only empty calories. It is
made from GMO sugar beets. Avoid it at all costs!
Brown sugar: Commercial brown sugar is nothing more than refined white sugar with some molasses added back in for color and flavor. It’s just as bad.
Evaporated cane juice: Made from sugar cane (as opposed to sugar beets), slightly less refined than white sugar, and therefore
retains more color, flavor, and nutrients from the sugar cane. One step less refining.
Raw organic cane sugar: This sugar is less processed than refined white sugar, and still contains some of the original nutrients present
in cane juice. These include amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and even some antioxidants. Because it’s organic, you also won’t be exposed to
the pesticides present in commercially grown sugar. So, while obviously a better choice than refined white sugar, but it’s still SUGAR and
should be consumed in minimal amounts.
Coconut sugar: Coconut sugar is harvested from the sap of the coconut plant through a very natural process of extracting the juice, and
then allowing the water to evaporate. Process-wise, it is one of the most sustainable methods of sugar production, and the product also
contains a small amount of fiber and other nutrients. Coconut also contains a lower percentage of fructose than the other sugars listed, which
perhaps makes it slightly healthier than the other options.
