I've avoided honey my whole life, and I've been hearing pretty good things about it. Does anyone have any stories of their own about the benefits of it, or any websites to check out. I actually checked the bottles at the store and all of them have 16g of sugar, that was ok. Is honey actually better for you than just plain sugar. Is honey better alone or used with green tea or white tea. Is there benefits to swallowing a tablespoon of honey once a day. I've already heard that honey helps with scratchy throats, colds, immune systems, energy level and skin tissue healing. I'm just recently getting into more knowledge of this. so yeah.
