Patanjali honey review:
Patanjali honey is a product of Patanjali Ayurveda, a company started by Baba Ramdev and Acharya Balkrishna to promote indigenous products in the country.
It is available in three sizes: 250 gm, 500 gm, and 1kg. 250gm pack is 9cm in height while 500 gm pack is 12 cm.
Baba Ramdev realized that there was a lot of demand for genuine honey in the country but none was available. So he launched honey under his own brand.
Patanjali honey had now become one of the biggest honey brands in the country leaving behind even companies like Dabur, Himalaya etc.
Health benefits of honey:
According to Ayurveda, honey is one of the major ingredients in many medicines due to its wide variety of benefits:
- Weight loss: Honey helps liver function better and promotes the release of fat burning hormones while sleeping. So it is preferable to consume 2 tablespoons of honey each night before sleeping
- Weight gain: Honey not only helps in weight loss but also helps in weight gain. (Though if you want to gain weight, use these Patanjali products for weight gain)
- Antibacterial, Antifungal Properties, and Antioxidant: Honey never spoils. It also has healing properties and if applied over wounds can act as a barrier to prevent infection. The antimicrobial property is due to the enzymatic production of hydrogen peroxide. Honey also acts as an anti-inflammatory and cures many ailments.
- Source of Vitamins and Minerals: Honey is a source of vitamins like Vitamin B6, thiamine, andriboflavin, pantothenic acid and minerals such as copper, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, sodium, and zinc. The amount varies according to the floral type of the honey.
- SkinCare with Milk and Honey: A mixture of milk and honey, when applied to the skin, gives a glow, nourishes the skin keeping it healthy.
- Energy Source: Honey is a rich source of carbohydrates, providing 17 grams at just 64 calories per tablespoon. Combining honey with fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains and other healthful foods can add to your total nutrition and give you a great natural energy boost.
Patanjali honey misconceptions and varieties:
There is a popular misconception that if honey freezes, it is fake. But this is wrong. Honey made from the flower nectar of sarso freezes no matter what.
A variety of Patanjali honey is made from lychi by bees extracting nectar from the lychi flowers of Bihar. Another variety of Patanjali honey is made multiflora from Himachal and other hilly areas. It is comparatively expensive as it is available in less amount.
Most of the honey that we originally buy from Patanjali is made from the nectar of eucalyptus flowers.
Patanjali honey has a strong fragrance and is a bit too sweet. It should be taken regularly to avoid cough, cold and fever.
The jaggery and sugar available in the open market have dangerous chemicals and polluted contents. Hence, the naturopathy doctors tell sugar as white poison.
Therefore, use Patanjali honey (as there is a guarantee of purity of Patanjali honey) for sweetness and remain healthy forever.
