Raw honeycomb comes in different colours, shapes and sizes just like us? The honeycomb colour varies depending on what flowers or trees the honey bees are collecting from.
Honeycomb is a cluster of repeating hexagonal wax cells that fill the interior of a honey bee beehive.
This product is not only delicious, it also has healing properties and health benefits that people have taken advantage of for thousands of years. Raw honeycomb is extremely nutritious and packs a whole bunch of nutrients and vitamins that regular honey cannot bring to the table.
Today we take a closer look at top ten benefits of raw honeycomb.
Raw honeycomb is jam-packed with nutrients, vitamins, enzymes, pollen & antioxidants
Giving your immune system a boost and giving your body other nutrients is an exciting benefit of eating honeycomb.
Natural vitamins and minerals in raw honey include: calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, and more. Raw honey also contains Vitamins C, B6 and B12, A, E, and D.
Due to the structure of the comb, when it remains sealed, raw honey is in its most pure and most nutritious form because it is straight from the source. This is something that liquid honey can’t provide. Honey that is removed from the honeycomb is exposed to air, which pulls water from the atmosphere. This leads to dilution in the honey that creates a difference in nutritional value.
