Honey has amazing health benefits for everyone, young and old - but most parents worry about offering it to their little ones in fear that they’ll have an allergy reaction. I chanced upon 13 Honey, a local company that helped me give Gordon the best nature has to offer!
Cleansing, Rejuvenating, Revitalising - these can be achieved through the consumption of good quality honey. Following this belief, years of innovative research and development have been conducted to ensure that the purest of honey is produced in environmentally friendly ways, so you can rest assured that every spoonful of golden goodness you savour not only adds to your overall wellbeing, but is also contributing to a better environment for all of us!
As a parent, I try my best to keep Gordon away from harm’s way - especially from food that are highly likely to cause allergies. If you have the same worry as I do, here’s something you can try - honey dew honey! It’s not made with the honeydew fruit (that’s what I thought at first), but from a rich, sticky liquid that comes from aphids when they feed on plant sap. Since it’s not made with flower nectar, it is completely safe for children above 1 year old to consume ;) Not only is it good for toddlers, it also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps adults with insomnia sleep better!
Medication doesn’t always work as fast as we’d like them to, and seeing our loved ones suffer can be worse than being sick ourselves. Gordon and I caught the flu bug recently and medication didn’t seem to be helping, it hurts so much seeing Gordon cough without much I can do to help him feel better.
Propolis, made by resin collected from trees mixed with a little honey, has been used to fight infections and help in the healing process for thousands of years. Propolis ousia and propolis honey are natural ways that you can consume green propolis, which is higher in bioflavonoids content (the healthy, wholesome stuff that makes you better!) and known for building the immune system and fighting against viral infections!
We’ve been taking propolis honey for a few days and I’m getting better much faster than I expected :O 13 Honey has a specially designed dispenser pump that is leakproof when it’s fully compressed, making it so much easier to add it into drinks - there’s no mess and wastage of honey either!
Feeling stressed out or need an energy boost? Ditch the coffee and switch over to butterfly pea flower tea! Studies have shown that it has plenty of antioxidants which help protect our skin against aging and reduce inflammation. It is also traditionally used to treat general pain and to increase your vitality ;)
13 Honey’s butterfly pea flower tea is made with organic flowers from their farm, no artificial flavouring, colouring or preservatives are added to their beverage - yes, the alluring deep blue comes naturally when the butterfly pea flower is brewed! Adding honey into the drink changes its taste from a mild, sweet water to a refreshing taste similar to lemon tea :O
You don’t have to carry a bottle of honey wherever you go, 13 Honey is also the only distributor in Singapore for unique bottle caps filled with honey, making it a fun and healthy drink for everyone to enjoy.
Have you ever heard of royal jelly? It’s actually produced by the glands in the head of worker bees and fed to larvae and adult queen bees! Royalactin, a single protein found in royal jelly, acts as a growth factor that “magically” transforms a larva into a queen bee.
Royal honey is made of royal jelly and honey (duh?), and it has a long list of health benefits. From brain development in children, combating short-term memory, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, protecting your liver, relieving sexual infertility, boosting your immune system to even nourishing your skin, it’s definitely a keeper ;)
For someone who’s been troubled with skin issues for over 10 years, and forgetting the slightest of things since pregnancy, royal honey sounds like a perfect match for me - probably won’t make me royalty but at least I’ll be bee-utiful! In fact, it’s suitable for my whole family so we’re saying goodbye to low-quality honey - they may be cheap, but most of them are just loaded with sugar syrup, or aren’t even pure honey at all :(
