Why We Love Honey!
It’s a Super Food not only for your insides, but for your outside, too.
Ever listen to those product ads on TV that tell us we need to “fight free-radicals?” Does anyone really know what that means?
A physicist’s response might be something along the lines of… “Free-radicals are minute groups of atoms with at least one unpaired electron, causing the chemical particle to be unstable…” Yeah, you get the idea. But what’s the plain language story on these tiny thinga-ma-jigs that do so much damage to our bodies?
In short… they destroy our cells. It’s true that free-radicals are atoms that are unstable. And the harder truth is, they chip away at cell walls, one molecule at a time, until cells lose their chemical balance and become dysfunctional. And the worst part is free-radicals are everywhere! There’s no avoiding them. And they’ll attack not only skin, but every cell in the body. Know what that spells? C-A-N-C-E-R. So in those same commercials where you’re hearing that you should fight free-radicals, how many of those companies are offering nature-made ways to do it?
Here’s where one of our favorite foods comes into the picture. Honey is one powerful antioxidant! And antioxidants are known to pack a mighty punch on free-radicals both inside and outside the body. Eating foods that are rich with antioxidant ingredients, such as honey, pomegranates, avocados, broccoli and raspberries, to name just a few, will help to neutralize damage caused by free-radicals on the inside of your body. And thank goodness these super-foods from Mother Nature also work to protect skin cells and help to slow signs of aging! At Valley Green Naturals, we use honey as a skin cleanser every day. And our creams and lotions are sure to delight free-radical freedom fighters with polyphenol-rich pomegranate seed oil and a host of other antioxidant ingredients like wheat germ oil, rosemary extract, green tea extract, tangerine and lemon.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again… There’s nothing better than what’s offered by nature to keep us healthy and well. We just need to pay attention to the bounty of goodies that’s offered to us! The Cancer Cure Foundation has a comprehensive list of free-radical fighting super foods that are great for feeding your insides. And you can visit the Environmental Working Group’s web site for more information on how to avoid toxins in your food, home and personal care.
