Liquid Gold or rather, honey, as we know it, speaks volumes about its moniker. With a multitude of health benefits, it’s no wonder that the consumption of honey dates back to ancient Egyptian times. Did you know that honey could naturally heal your body? From a common cold to an itchy scalp, let honey work its magic for you! Thanks to antibacterial and anti-fungal properties of honey, it can treat seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff too. Honey is also known to have anti-inflammatory properties, which alleviates seasonal allergy symptoms. A theory suggests that honey contains small amounts of pollen, and when our bodies are exposed to tiny amounts of it, it might trigger an immune response. However, after repeated exposure, our system builds up these antibodies to become accustomed such that less histamine is released, resulting in a milder allergic response, which might hardly be noticeable. Packed with the ability to assist our bodies to absorb calcium, which our brains need in order to process thought and make decisions, we had better consume honey daily to maintain our memory! Best of all, it is an all-natural energy drink. With roughly 17g of carbohydrates in a single tablespoon, indulge guilt-free in this sweet nectar of unprocessed sugar made up of fructose and glucose.
Of course, not all honey comes equal, and what better way to know you’re consuming the best of the best than to know that honey from 13 Honey is straight out from their very own farm! Set in all-natural surroundings with plenty of flowers, greenery, and space for their bees to frolic around, their bee yard houses rows and rows of hives for their honey-making companions. Having the highest standards for consumer welfare, 13 Honey strives to ensure that their honey is kept in its most excellent condition from their hives all the way to your table after being processed, refined and filtered in plants that use the best in modern technology.
Setting out to achieve “A Better World, One Drop At A Time”, and with a strong belief that good health stems from Cleansing, Rejuvenating and Revitalising, 13 Honey has a premium Ginseng Honey bottle which is produced in limited quantities and is coming soon to V-MORE! It is a known fact that the nutrients, essence and quality of ginseng is at it’s best when it has reached 6 years of age, hence all ginseng used are of tip top quality. To ensure that your honey has the essence of ginseng, each bottle has its own ginseng soaked for at least 6 months before it is available for sale! During this process, the ginseng essence will diffuse into the honey, giving it its rich hint of ginseng flavour, and the ginseng root in turn, will absorb the honey. Retailing at S$498 for a standard 1kg bottle, you can indulge in its vast health benefits such as boosting our immune system, relieving fatigue and it can also help with heart disease.
13 Honey has also crafted their Therapeutic Series which includes 6 types of honey, and are useful in combatting or preventing specific types of ailments. These are the Stingless Bee, Bee Venom, Royal, Honey Dew, Propolis and Apple Vinegar. All of which are available for sale individually in a 250g jar retailing for S$39, which are perfect for gifts, and a 850g jar retailing for S$79 if you are consuming on a daily basis. If you feel that you’re not ready to commit to a 250g jar of honey, check out their tester kit, which has 3 different types of honey, all in miniature bottles of 25g each, retailing at S$14.90.
First is the Royal Honey; Royal jelly is secreted from the glands on the heads of worker bees and is fed to larvae and the queen bees. One of the components of royal jelly is Royalactin, which is a single protein that acts as the growth factor which polymorphs a larva into a queen bee; this also helps with premature ageing if you want to preserve your youth! The next one is Propolis, which is commonly known as “bee glue”. It is made from mixing bee saliva and beeswax with exudate gathered from tree buds, sap flows, or any other botanical sources. It is used as a sealant for unwanted open spaces in the hive. 13 Honey uses only the most natural, alcohol-free, green propolis, which has a higher content in bioflavonoids as compared of other types. Being a natural antiseptic, Propolis Honey is packed with powerful antioxidants, with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. The last in the tester kit is Apple Vinegar honey, which is a perfect blend of fermented apple juice, and natural honey. Apple vinegar is widely known to bring an entire host of health benefits such as relieving constipation. Combined with honey, its taste evolves into one that’s sweet and tart, acting as a good alternative for fruit juices. With the best of apple vinegar and honey, this blend packs quite a punch with its anti-cancer properties!
