The rare flora, bees can visit in the area, combined with the suitable climate constitutes one of the main reasons why our honey is among the best honeys in Greece and Europe.
With nature’s care! Honey is the sweetest gift of nature to human! Its unique nutritional and healing qualities were known since ancient times! According to Mythology, Great Zeus was raised with honey by nymph Melissa (meaning honey). Hippocrates recommended it in many cases, while Democritus, the father of nuclear theory, who lived up to 107 years, used to say: “You need to wet your insides with honey and your outsides with oil”
Analysing honey… Honey contains 70-80% sugars, mostly glucose and fructose. 180 nutrients have been identified till now, but there is still work to be done! It contains 16% water, 18 different organic acids, proteins and amino acids, minerals in small quantities (potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, etc.), enzymes, protein complexes, vitamins (B2, B6, C, D, E, pantothenic acid, folic acid, etc. ), natural flavouring substances, etc.
Dr Honey…the sweetest doctor! Hippocrates recommended a solution with honey to soothe cough and heal sore throats caused by virus. Even nowadays, honey is thought as an effective and alternative to over-the-counter cough medicine. The bacteriostatic power of honey is one more unique quality, as it prevents the multiplication of bacteria. It is ideal for sore throats, wounds, burns! Consuming honey daily, it does not only mean that we eat something tasty and sweet, but it also means that we help our health! In addition to energy, it also offers well-being, regulates body’s metabolism, protects against stomach or intestinal disorders, enhances the heart function and blood flow, represses anaemia, protects liver and kidney!
