Raw honey is one of our favorite ways to sweeten up our tasty kitchen creations. And when our superfood + protein blends are swirled into jars of raw honey, you have a low-glycemic, high-vibrational, nutritionally-dense nectar that is pure bliss.
It’s one of the oldest and most versatile natural remedies. Raw honey has been used to soothe sore throats, sweeten tea, and contains powerful antioxidants that help reduce signs of aging. Who knew that little jar of liquid gold held so much! When we combined our nutrient-rich superfood blends with healing raw honey, we created an incredibly powerful superfood product that is just as delicious as it is nourishing
Today, we’re sharing 5 benefits and uses of our favorite supercharged raw honey.
It’s loaded with vitamins and minerals
Raw honey contains an assortment of vitamins including Vitamin B6, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin and pantothenic acid, along with minerals like copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium AND zinc! This definitely makes it one of the most nourishing ways to sweeten your eats + drinks.
It can help you ease into sleep
If you struggle with falling asleep or insomnia, try adding superfood raw honey to an evening herbal tea. The natural sugar found in raw honey raises your body’s insulin levels which releases tryptophan where it gets converted into serotonin, which becomes melatonin.

It’s the best cold remedy, especially for your little ones!
When it comes to preventing and promoting recovery from colds, honey is a powerful multi-tasker. It is rich in phytonutrients that boost immunity, is packed with methylglyoxal (MG), a substance that has naturally antibacterial properties, and is an excellent throat-coating cough suppressant thanks to its thick consistency. You can add superfood raw honey to all of your favorite foods and drinks to boost your immune system and heal your body.

It's full of antioxidants.
Micronutrients called polyphenols in honey contain antioxidants, which are SO essential for radiance + wellness. Antioxidants help combat free radicals, those bad atoms that contribute to cellular damage and can lead to disease.
It beautifies the skin and makes the perfect face mask.
The healing benefits of raw honey have been recognized for centuries. Ancient Egyptians and Ayurvedic traditions used honey to treat skin infections, burns, and wounds since this sweet gift from nature possesses antibiotic properties. I love mixing it into a hydrating DIY mask with aloe and cucumber since it reduces both redness and swelling!
