Forest honey is made from honeydew that bees collect
Meadow, sunflower and acacia honey are made from flower nectar. Forest honey is made from honeydew collected by bees. Honey dew of plant origin is more dominant in parts of continental Europe. This dew is secreted by certain plant species when the climatic conditions are suitable. Excess liquid in the form of sticky and sweet syrup erupts through the surface of the leaves. The bees then collect and process this excess liquid and store it in the honeycomb. Honey dew of animal origin occurs because certain types of insects suck plant sap. Insects absorb nutrients from these juices and then excrete a liquid that contains excess sugar. Among these creators of animal honeydew are plant aphids which are the most famous and which parasitize on the green parts of the plant. The resulting product is rich in nutrients that have a beneficial effect on humans.
The so-called forest honey is 13 times richer in minerals and antioxidants than other types of honey. It has a higher percentage of sucrose, dextrins and minerals. It has a lower proportion of flucose and fructose because honeydew does not contain enzymes (for example nectar). This honey is rich in amino acids, oligosaccharides, mineral salts and flavonoids. Amino acids and oligosaccharides have the effect of probiotics because they stimulate the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines, thus helping to restore the intestinal flora. The antibacterial properties of honey are suitable for relieving cough and faster recovery after severe diseases and diseases of the respiratory tract (especially the inflammatory process of the lungs). Forest honey contains even less sugar because it is not obtained from flower nectar. Recommended for diabetics. Forest honey is recommended for athletes (who lose a large amount of salt and water from the body through sweating) because it is rich in mineral salts which actually balance the hydration of the body.
Consumption of any honey, including forest honey, strengthens the body and immunity. Honey is rich in flavonoids that have an antioxidant effect. The human body uses this substance to reduce inflammatory processes, lower high blood pressure, speed up and strengthen blood flow, and fight free radicals that can cause disease and accelerated aging of the body. Forest honey is eaten as a stand-alone food. A better effect is achieved if you pour 100 to 150 grams of raw pollen with a kilogram of forest honey. Then add a little more propolis to this mixture. Stir occasionally. Pollen melts and combines with honey over time (in a few days). This is one of the simplest and best preparations for strengthening the organism. You can melt this mixture of honey, propolis and pollen in warm water (never hot) so that the useful properties are not lost.
The hormones noradrenaline, dopamine and serotonin are responsible for good mood. These hormones are normally produced in the brain. Everyday life situations (increased stress, struggle for existence, accelerated lifestyle, illness, etc.) can cause a disorder in the synthesis of happiness hormones and the development of depressive symptoms (insomnia, sleep disorders, tension, irritability, etc.). In case of tension and insomnia, the use of acacia honey is recommended. The use of forest honey can also help here because this honey is rich in B complex vitamins (which raises the level of the happiness chromone).
It is recommended to consume one small spoon of forest honey (children) to 3 small spoons a day (adults). When a person swallows a whole spoonful of honey at once, then honey has the function of ordinary food (from which only carbohydrates are extracted). Honey should therefore be put in one small spoon and taken in divided doses. Let the honey melt in your mouth then the next small dose should be taken from the spoon. So honey should not be swallowed at once because it loses its nutritional properties. In the morning before eating and drinking you can melt honey in a cup of warm water. Drink in small sips because with this way all the nutritional properties of forest honey and other types of honey are retained.
