I know if you’re trying to lose a few inches off your waist, your gut health, your teeth, and so forth then you may be trying to cut back on sugar. This is obviously very effective for a variety of health
reasons, beyond just dropping the pounds But the big problem is that sugar is VERY addictive. In fact it is 8 times as addictive as cocaine! No wonder its so hard to cut back on.

Honey, in particular, has three critical healing effects…
First, honey supports your immune system and fights off harmful bacteria.
