Types of honey

Depending on the composition of bee honey and pasture plants, there are several types of honey. All honey is good for certain ailments. If we can not provide the desired honey, is good and regular, amalgamated, but on condition that the natural-bee.

Sunflower honey

Sunflower honey is highly ranked in the world. Only pure honeydew and some special types of homogeneous honeys in front of him. The reason for this is the extremely high concentration of flower pollen and some minerals dissolved in sunflower honey. Its color ranges from yellow to orange. Has a pleasant taste. For us, this type of honey is not valued for its ability to quickly ušećeri. Rarely, it remains in a liquid state for more than forty days. Although it is better to eat candied honey, because then more time in the mouth, the fact that we change our habits die hard and that offer this type of honey in our area is relatively large, have led to the sunflower honey, absolutely unfair, pushed behind some real lower quality honeys.

Acacia honey

Pure natural honey locust tree is made entirely of black locust flower nectar. This honey is prized in Europe because of its mild flavor and golden color. Because of its properties that are very slow ušećeri, great for those with food guides that require it in liquid form.

Honey from rapeseed is one of cenjenijih honeys in the world. He is known that the bees in the pasture experiencing incredible growth. It is true that at the time of flowering rapeseed colonies on the rise but that does not diminish the quality of this honey. It is very rich in minerals and pollen.
This honey crystallizes very quickly, but a few days after the honey extraction. Unlike sunflower honey that crystallizes in large crystals, honey rapeseed has a very fine small crystals, so reminiscent of the fat.Because of these properties are used in many cosmetics mednoj in the preparation of various creams made from honey.

Chestnut honey

Clover honey

The basis of this honey is the nectar of succulent plants, primarily in the clover, which is sown for fodder.Therefore, honey is mild, clear and almost colorless. It smells like hay and is sturdy. It slade residents of the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand.

Toxic honey

Toxic honey contains otrivnu acetilandromedol matter, which displaced persons located in the nectar and pollen of rhododendrons, azaleas, andromeda and tripetalije (same message. Ericeaceae), as well as other species. Causes headache, dizziness, difficulty breathing, vomiting, etc.., And therefore can be called a "drunk honey." For the bees are not always harmful. The case of mass poisoning honey, which is described by the ancient Greek writer Xenophon general and then in Colchis (present-day maritime regions of Georgia). The soldiers who had eaten honey manifested signs of severe poisoning, which were passed after 3-4 days, but some soldiers died. There is information honey poisoning in the USSR, Japan, USA and England. In Bulgaria, they were determined slu269; bearings poor honey poisoning in Strandja. In case of poisoning Yugoslavia honey are not precisely defined, but in the earlier literature are mentioned. However, of all the plants that you're toxic to animals and humans and can not get poisoned honey.
Toxic substances in honey are volatile, stored for long periods in open courts (covered with only gauze) in normal conditions, they gradually disappear. Toxic honey can be done more quickly usable by postipku - zagrvanjem at 46 º Fahrenheit at lower air pressure in the vacuum.

Sage honey
Extraordinary uses for dry coughs and colds, and facilitates the expulsion of mucus from the trachea and bronchi.

Honeydew - Forest Honey

Honeydew or honey dew is sweet substance that occurs periodically, at certain time intervals, individual leaves of evergreen and deciduous trees, usually on the list of pine, fir, spruce, willow, oak, chestnut and others.
Some authors argue that there is honeydew plant and animal origin. However, many years of research by some foreign experts could not determine the plant tissues secrete honeydew.
Honeydew produced some insects, mostly aphids. They list their RILIĆ drilled to penetrate and Pure parts through which pressurized circulating in leaf plants. But other insects that feed by sucking sap from sweet listiva and other parts of some plants. These juices aphids in some way processed in honeydew, and sucrose influence of aphids from plant juice is converted mainly in the grape and fruit and other higher forms of sugar, and in this way creates the bees to produce Honeydew, or, as more called, forest honey or defect.
How will the honeydew on the leaves appear, depends almost exclusively on the climatic conditions that affect the development of insects, plants assimilate processed in the honeydew. Depending on the plant, godišjeg seasons, weather conditions and the type of insect honeydew becomes different in their characteristics and sasravu. If, for example, fall hot and dry, winters mild and early spring appearances, then one can expect a lot of honeydew, and vice versa.
Bees gather honeydew happy with leaves, is related to the hive and from it prepared honeydew.
Honeydew varies according to the characteristics and chemical composition of honey comes from nectar collected from flowers honey plants. Contains considerably more minerals. The honeydew and floral honey, distinguished by the quality, color, taste, time, etc. crystallization., Which depends primarily on the type of tree from which collects honeydew and insect species that is produced.
Due to the small amount of water and large amounts of resin, mucilage and other substances in the colloidal (dextrins, proteins, etc.). Honeydew density is more viscous and harder to centrifuguje. It is usually dark (amber, dark brown to black) color, but may be lighter or with green sauce. Some types of Honeydew (eg with oak leaves) remains in a liquid state and ekoliko years, while others, Quick crystallize even more in the honeycomb cells, forming Gus, fine-ground-like paws (eg os fir) or large crystals that are deposited and above them remains liquid part (eg with lime leaves and larch). Honeydew from willow leaves sometimes crystallizes in the form of dry whitish powder or fine sand, which can be visited and fall under the hive.
Honeydew is great for human consumption, is respected and has a good price on the domestic and international markets. The only flaw is that it is not suitable as food for wintering bees. It contains significant amounts of fermentable matter, and since winter bees can not fly into the regular treatment, it is indigestible substances accumulate in the digestive tract of worker bees, which leads to disease and diarrhea. In more severe cases may die a number of worker bees, and even can lead to death of the entire colony.

Royal jelly and bee pollen

Royal jelly is a thick mass of white to pale yellow color. It has the characteristic flavor and crisp and slightly tart sweet taste.

Royal jelly is a secretion from glands located on top of the head of young bees. The amount of royal jelly components varies in a rather wide range. It was noted that Royal jelly is rich in protein, carbohydrates, fats, amino acids, vitamins B, C, E, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, inositol and folic acid. It contains remarkable amounts of proteins, lipids, glucides, hormones, enzymes, minerals, and specific vital factors that act as biocatalysts in cell regeneration processes within the human body.

Although some of the elements found in royal jelly are in microgram quantities, they still can act supremely with co-enzymes as catalysts or can act synergistically.

Royal jelly is showing healing and gives positive effects of influenza and other viral infections, increases immunity, reduces symptoms in chemotherapy, accelerates the healing and rebuilding of bone after fracture or injury, reduces inflammation and pain in the joints in arthritis, helps with dementia and neurosis, held hormonal balance, regulating the lack of sexual energy, prevents infection of male and female sexual organs, affects the normalization of blood pressure and reduce blood fat levels.

Royal jelly participate in the regeneration of pancreatic cells and has a positive effect on lowering blood sugar levels. It helps in strengthening the hair roots, improve muscle tone and appearance of skin and nails.

Bee pollen (pollen) is one of the richest natural source of nutrients, especially vitamins and minerals needed in any stage of life. Pollen is the carrier of the genetic features of the plant and therefore contains all the nutrients necessary ingredients for the creation and development of new life.

Pollen is the main source of vitamins (especially E and B group), minerals, lipids and proteins in honey bee colonies, and also contains enzymes and co-enzymes, polyphenols, nucleic acids, hormones, and other substances.

Pollen protects the liver, heart, brain and adrenal gland of free radicals and raise antioxidant defense.Improves nutrition of the uterus without harmful effects on the fetus, and the fetus results in increased weight and hemoglobin levels, total protein, albumin, and serum iron. Thanks to the content of vegetable matter (phytosterols) that have hormonal effects, positive effect on sex glands in males (increases potency and sperm count) and women (relieves menstrual and menopausal symptoms).

Pollen improves the immune system. Beneficial effect in chronic constipation (constipation) and constant diarrhea (colitis), probably due to antibiotic activity of intestinal bacteria, particularly gram-negative.Reduces the level of increased triglycerides, cholesterol and uric acid in the blood.

Application of pollen from the hive, or as an additional sustaining therapy has shown good effect in depression, neurasthenia (fatigue, decreased vitality, lethargy, a feeling of permanent fatigue and exhaustion, low life tonus) and alcoholism (decrease withdrawal syndrome).

Fresh and fermented pollen improves health status in chronic inflammation of the liver. Pollen from the honey comb involved in the beneficial effect on hypochromic anemia. Prevents prostate problems, especially in chronic prostatitis.

And royal jelly and pollen used as a dietary supplement. Proper nutrition means these two products.

Royal jelly has in recent years entered a very wide range of applications, but most people do not have enough real information on how to use it and that all its positive effects on human health.

If you turn off into the markets for beekeeping, you'll notice that the majority of beekeepers has propolis, honey, pollen, beeswax, but who rarely has a beekeeper and jelly. Why? Because modern beekeepers know that today is remarkable biological properties of royal jelly can not keep out of the hive for more than seventy hours. Jelly destroying light, high temperatures and long standing. It is therefore understandable that his survival in honey is not safe and that the purchase of such mixtures only get a little more valuable version of honey, but not authentic jelly.

Wealth biostimulators

If the jelly kept in alcohol or frozen, that's not the safest way, because we are so subtle they are losing all of his lavish biostimulators composition. Of course the best fresh bread, but preserved the same value and stimulative properties of royal jelly, which has just undergone a process of freeze-drying, or process in which water is removed from it, and thus isolate the dry part in what are the most valuable ingredients.

- Seventy percent of jelly is water, and 30 percent of the dry residue. The dry residue of royal jelly contains almost all vitamins, minerals, and hormonal biostimulators components are complete biological counterparts to human hormones, then gammaglobulins, acetylcholine, proteins - all essential and non-essential amino acids (29), essential fatty acids, sugar and many other useful biostimulators. To preserve this treasure of royal jelly, it is necessary to draw water from it. This is achieved by freeze-drying at low temperature, in a vacuum, after which we are left remains dry, powdery, powdery form. E of this form may take a few years - explains Dr. Mirjana Jovanovic, a specialist in microbiology and parasitology and associate company "Protehna" which deals with the distribution of bee products.
She points out that the resulting jelly, packed in capsules or effervescent tablets, has preserved all active biosupstance that have multiple benefits for our health and nutrition.

Good after menopause

Royal jelly regulates and improves immunity, circulation and physical energy, revitalizes, improves mental and regenerative functions of the organism and its cleaning. First * n * primarily operates in the prevention of acute and chronic diseases.

- Due to the presence of estrogen, jelly and can relieve symptoms that occur during menopause: weakness, sweating, mood swings. In a similar way, regular consumption of royal jelly can be reduced adolescent disorders for which there is hormonal imbalance in the form of dysmenorrhea or absence of cycles. And with them the jelly directly or indirectly improve hormonal balance and balance - says our interlocutor.

Need a daily dose

Lyophilized royal jelly effervescent tablets can also be combined with vitamin C, iron, zinc, calcium, selenium, magnesium, chromium.
Daily quantities used for preventive purposes should not be larger than 50 to 60 milligrams of lyophilized royal jelly. However, the therapeutic need for royal jelly and go up to several hundred milligrams a day.

- I recommend two ways to use regularly and intensively. Regular, preventive uses include a daily intake of 10, 20, 30 mg. Giving an indication of intense royal jelly may be subacute or chronic viral infections, a chronic degenerative condition such as atherosclerosis, liver or intokcikacija, or an initial cirrhosis or indigestion, a condition of chronic fatigue, neurological problems, conditions after surgery. Then he gives hundreds of milligrams per day as needed to enhance metabolism, recovery and strengthen immunity. Each application is determined individually, as required by the principles of apitherapy, the medical use of bee products. Of course, it should be done in consultation with apitherapist who do have experience - highlights Dr. Jovanovic.

Royal jelly as a first-class adaptogen helps to maintain a good balance in the body, which is disrupted by stress.

- When a man is under stress, it consumes more energy to cope with that, and everything else is suspended, no Bioregeneration. Then there is a larger amount of hormones. As a direct damage beyond that we have low immunity. By entering the royal jelly increases one life, anti-stress and antioxidant capacity - concluded Dr. Jovanovic.

Allergies rarity
Describes the extremely rare allergy to royal jelly.
- However, there should be a parallel between allergy to bee products, including bread, just because of violent reaction to a bee sting. Even allergies to pollen and propolis may be less intense than the native pollen, and most are local skin reactions. Any allergy should be tested and certified. As an immunostimulant and immunomodulator, jelly, affirming, and is often used as a concealer and desensitizer when the body has an allergic reaction overemphasized or inclination - says Mirjana Jovanovic.

The tincture is made from propolis and alcohol. For the preparation of tinctures used 96% and 76% better ethyl alcohol, which is indicated to be used as a food product.

In a jar put the propolis, then pour the alcohol in a 1:2 ratio. Hold the liquid in a jar and shake 5-7 days 3 times a day.

After that, the liquid filter, for example, using coffee filters.

You can take 20-90 drops of tincture per day, depending on the disease, between meals, with half a tablespoon of honey, warm water or tea.

Wild flower honey is the most complex and contains the most vitamins

If we adhere more saying "honey nourishes and defends many diseases" we spend less time on the waiting rooms in health centers. Experts say that every day should eat as many grams of honey as we kilograms, divided into two or three doses.
It is best to be taken 15-30 minutes before meals with warm water or tea, or to be placed under the tongue to slowly melt. To sleep better, stir in a tablespoon of honey with warm milk. So as not to go too far with a permissible dose, you should know that a spoon can be interventions from 28 to 30 grams of honey, a spoon, about 15 grams.

- Honey is not a cure, only medications, and that brings with it a Homolja, and the other with the Stara Planina not affect the quality - explains to the reader "Vecernje Novosti" Mica Mladenovic, professor of apiculture Faculty of Agriculture in Belgrade. - All Medari have the same breed of bees, and the difference can be only in mineral content. Acacia at least, only seven or eight minerals, lime has a 16-18, about 25 meadow, forest 40, and has a chestnut 45th The latter is therefore ideal for the "strengthening" of the mind.Although he attributed many medicinal properties, honey is mainly food, and therefore needs to take a large spoon. Jar should always be kept on the table, a matter of taste whether you eat acacia, meadow, lime, floral and forest honey.

Acacia is the brightest, there is little pollen, so I can eat it and people who are allergic to pollen. Compared to other honeys, which has the highest fructose slowly crystallizes and remains in a liquid state for up to three years. How is the sweetest honey, the kids love it, and are recommended for pregnant women, because it adopts the best in the intestinal tract and rapidly absorbed through the blood stream and transported to vital organs that use it. In athletes to the muscles, the students' brains, for convalescents place where the regeneration of tissue and the like.
Wild flower honey is the most complex and contains vitamins derived from many plants, and each plant has a specific chemical composition. Somewhere in between there is more alkaloids, minerals somewhere, sometime vitamins, especially the significant presence of essential oils and phytoncides (herbal antibiotics that defend the plant against microorganisms). Because vitamin content, meadow honey should be taken during the fall and spring cold.

- Forest honey is crvenkastobraon to black and is specific for high mineral content that are relevant for the mental and physical activity, and therefore has a high price - explains Dr. Mladenovic. - We do not have a constant production of this type of media which usually every second, third and fifth years. The most common media during a hot summer night when the morning dew or moisture, which is rare. However, when all conditions are agreed, there is a honey harvest, and it is often the most abundant oak blight. Gives a lime, and honeydew is particularly interesting as pine and fir in Greece, which are rich in minerals.

In combination with pollen, royal jelly and propolis, honey cocktail is prepared containing all the materials needed to man during the day. There are plenty of carbohydrates which provide strength and a pollen concentrate biogenic materials that provide all the nutrients. Propolis has a protective role, and bees use it as a disinfectant or as a means by which to regulate or suppress all pathogens in the hive.
With flavones and flavonoids, which contains the most propolis, and bactericidal effect bakterostatički and is used in the repair of the disease, especially in spring and autumn. It protects, stops or kills pathogens.
- Royal jelly or translated queen's milk is extremely nutritious varying amounts of essential acids, minerals, vitamins, hormones - says our source. - Feeding on royal jelly, the queen lives up to seven years in contrast to bees that have 40 days. In addition to regulating metabolism, it can help in the recovery of some diseases - heart problems, ulcers and other gastrointestinal diseases.

Quality Inspection

If you want to check what you are buying honey, you do not need to be specially trained. It is enough to draw a teaspoon honey and to follow the thread that is created during the fall. Unlike syrup, eventually falling in drops, honey thread never stops, it just thins out. The difference is also in what tablespoons syrup to fall right, honey and real waterfalls.
- And the fact that sellers sometimes try to lure customers by turning the jar, the more advertising and has nothing to do with the quality of honey - the story Mica Mladenovic. - This just shows how much water with honey. By the rules can contain from 16 to 20 percent water, a hat when going slower, it just means that honey has less water.

If someone exceeds the recommended daily dose of honey and take a double measure or more may be present serious complications. Honey is highly ugljenohidratantna component and releases high temperature due to "overdose" can jump temperature, to report cardiac arrhythmia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea. The complaints usually disappear after a few hours when eaten honey stomach.

Honey can be corrupted if the bad closed. He hidroskopan, absorbing moisture in the surface layer may be diluted. Then begins the process of fermentation silent, which means that honey can be sour. On the surface, there is such a honey foam and change the smell, but then you can just remove the layer from the surface and eat the rest of the honey.

However, our source says, although regularly take honey and (or) number of bee products they are using them incorrectly. The way of taking nutrition, prevention and healing depends on the type of bee since each product has its own physical and chemical composition and properties. As for the method of application of honey healing, says Mr. Stepanovic usually applied recalls the advice and recommendations of Professor Stojmir Mladenov of Bulgaria.
