Why choose our honey?

Honey is a food extremely tasty and with great beneficial properties for our body. But this does not mean that all honey is equally effective and of high quality.

Greek honey of course has an advantage over imported honey of dubious composition. Βut let’s see together why when you choose our honey you can be sure that you are enjoying not only a product of high nutritional value but also a shield for your health.

First of all, it is a 100% natural and unadulterated honey. Unlike honeys which, in order to have the liquid form you are used to, are constantly subjected to heat treatment, our honey is raw, unheated, full of all its vitamins and valuable elements. Therefore, we can assure you that with every spoonful you will be enjoying natural honey, and not just a food that may taste like honey, and in no way can it benefit you (and in many cases it may even be harmful to your health).

Our honey is rich in propolis and pollen. Why is this important? Let’s first find out what propolis is. It is a sticky substance produced by bees and is the result of the collection of resinous secretions from plant bark enriched with wax, pollen, enzymes and other substances.

Propolis is used by bees to seal and disinfect the inside of the hive and is rich in healing properties. Among other things, it is rich in:

Anti-inflammatory action:
It has the ability to stimulate the mobility of macrophage cells of the immune system and suppress certain enzymes that allow inflammation to develop.

Anti-viral properties:
Propolis is known to possess a broad antiviral spectrum, and its activity against viruses is greatly enhanced in combination with pollen and royal jelly. It has certified activity against viruses, including influenza, H1N1 and H1N3.

Antifungal properties:
The antifungal activity of propolis has been confirmed and practical against Candida albicans, Trichomonas vaginalis, coliforms and other bacteria, fungi and parasites.
It has also been confirmed that long-term use of propolis does not lead to the development of resistant strains of pathogenic microorganisms, while it also destroys pathogenic microorganisms that have become resistant to antibiotics just as easily.

Antioxidant action:
Propolis can scan oxygen free radicals. Furthermore, it protects vitamin C from oxidation.

Immune action:
Propolis has been shown to stimulate and strengthen the general and specific immune system, while increasing interferon, inducing cellular and chemical immunity.
