Yes, today we will be talking about the healing property of the sweet, delicious and warmly rich food which the honey bees give to us – Honey.
This sweet food is made up by the honey bees by taking up the nectar that resides inside different fruits, flowers and plants. Honey bees keep a look out for nectar in flowers. After extracting it from there they have a special procedure called “regurgitation” by which they convert the nectar into honey and then store it in the wax honey combs located in their houses called beehives.
This marvelous process makes the magical extracts of different flowers and fruits, available for us. So, what does basically the sweet honey contain? Well, it basically contains the components like fructose and glucose.
But sometimes the honey might also have certain amounts of bacterium inside them which can be dangerous for the infants, so honey should not be given to infants before taking advice from a child specialist doctor.
