Raw honey is the ONLY honey you should eat, both for the great taste and for the health benefits. Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have identified 13 unique lactic acid bacteria in the stomachs of bees. These bacteria have amazing antimicrobial properties. In one study, honey containing these lactic acid bacteria was applied directly to persistent wounds on 10 horses. Previously, the owners had tried other medications, but nothing had worked. With the honey, however, all 10 horses were healed. In laboratory testing, honey with lactic acid bacteria has been completely effective in fighting drug resistant pathogens such as MRSA. Researchers believe that a possible explanation for these promising results is that raw honey contains a broad spectrum of beneficial substances which work together to produce strong healing properties.
