Each month we like to highlight some of the ingredients in our Golden Roya honey so you can better understand the health benefits they offer. This week we want to dive into honey and an herb called Tongkat Ali.
Now you may be thinking, “What’s there to know about honey? It’s sweet and sticky?” Admittedly, honey is one of those foods that you don’t really think about. Maybe you drizzle some in your tea, maybe you stir some into a BBQ sauce, but otherwise, it gets little attention.
Well that’s about to change as I share with you five cool and surprising things you probably didn’t know about this golden, sticky sweet stuff.
- Honey Makes a Great Face Cleanser
Honey is full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It’s incredibly healthy for the inside and outside of your body. Used as a face cleanser, it helps clear away blemishes and leaves your skin baby-soft. Simply smooth some on, leave it to sit for a few minutes, then gently rinse I off with warm water. The trick is keeping it out of your hair!
- Honey Never Goes Bad
You could open a jar of honey, leave it in your pantry shelf for five years and come back and it will still be fine. Sometimes honey may crystalize, but you can simply put it in a bowl of warm water and voila – crystals are gone.
- Honey Helps You Heal
Honey can be used on wounds and burns to help them heal faster.
- Goodbye Allergies
Honey from local bees is believed to treat seasonal allergies.
- Honey as Money
Ancient Egyptians used honey as a form of money and fed it to their sacred animals. That’s how valuable they found it.
Our Golden Royal Honey is made with some of the most fantastic honey on the planet that can help give you energy, stamina, and increase your libido. Try some today.
Tongkat Ali a Wonder Supplement?
Now, moving on to Tongkat Ali. Yes, it’s not easy to say, but it’s easy to reap the benefits of this powerful supplement. Some people even call Tongkat Ali a wonder supplement because of the many health benefits.
Tongkat ali is an herbal supplement that has been used as an aphrodisiac and testosterone booster by various cultures. It has been found to enhance sexual health and performance in men and women, and findings suggest tongkat ali may also play a role in preventing osteoporosis, diabetes, and anxiety.
Let’s take a look at some of the biggest benefits of this amazing natural substance:
Promotes Bone Formation
By increasing testosterone levels naturally, tongkat ali can also stimulate new bone cell growth. It also stimulates bone growth by increasing the activity of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), an enzyme that plays a role in development of bones and teeth, as well as enhances the deposition and mineralization of collagen.
Tongkat ali has been shown to inhibit tumor growth and progression and promote cancer cell death. While more research is needed, the initial findings are very positive.
Improves Gut Health
Tongkat ali can reduce stomach acid, which can help prevent ulcers in some individuals.
Increase Testosterone Levels
As I mentioned earlier, tongkat ali increases testosterone levels and muscle strength in both men and women. As we age, it is important to keep our testosterone levels up for optimum health.
Tongkat Ali Improves Male Fertility and Sexual Performance
Studies have shown that tongkat ali increases sperm motility, concentration and quality as well as semen volume. The substance has also been found to increase the libido in both men and women and improve erectile dysfunction.
These are only some of the numerous benefits of tongkat ali. If you’d like to try some for yourself, we recommend our Golden Royal Honey which contains tongkat ali, as well as pure honey and other nutrients that have been shown to optimize various aspects of human health.
