Himalaya Herbal Healthcare Organic Soliga Forest Honey - 8.8 oz. (250g)

Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey is 100% organic forest honey made from the nectar of hundreds of forest flowers found in the tropical evergreen forests of South India. In fact, the BR Hills forest area from which this honey is sourced supports amazingly diverse vegetation. There are over 800 different plant species in this forest and the bees collect honey from about 600 flowering plants!! Unlike most regular honey, which is sourced from city-bred bees that collect nectar from common or garden plants, Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey is multi-floral forest honey collected from several rare plant species including many medicinal plants.

The bees found in BR Hills are no ordinary bees. They are wild rock bees (Apis Dorsata) that live mostly in and around tropical evergreen forests and cannot be domesticated. They build nests in very tall trees and on steep rocks. The cliffs are so steep that it requires extraordinary courage to climb them and reach the rare colonies built by the rock bees. The nests are huge and yield several kilograms of honey in a single harvest. Since there is no commercial exploitation of the forests, the area is biodiversity-rich, further enhancing the taste and purity of Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey.

The flavor and aroma of Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey is unique. It is multifloral forest honey with a rich, natural and distinctive taste, very different from the cloying sweetness of honey collected from hives in the backyards of beekeepers. The wild bee makes honey from the nectar of hundreds of different flora found in the biodiversity-rich BR Hills forest.

Provides natural antioxidants and beneficial bioflavonoids
Bioflavonoids are great health boosters and good for maintaining cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, respiratory and immune systems. They also have very powerful antioxidant properties. Commercial honeys are usually heated to very high levels to remove pollen. This process of force filtration destroys health bioflavonoids. Since Soliga honey is 100% organic, which does not allow heating to high levels, it retains its natural health benefits. Antioxidants in the honey are very helpful in countering the degenerative activity of free radicals. A spoonful of honey consumed daily helps increase the level of antioxidants in the body. Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey is dark rich forest honey. Studies show that dark colored honey has deeper flavor and more protective properties than light colored honey. It also has natural antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress in human beings.

Sustainable Harvesting
Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey is sustainably harvested honey. When collecting the honey, great care is taken to ensure that the bee colony is not destroyed. The honeycomb is an intricate structure of honey, wax, pollen and larvae. Sustainable harvesting of honey involves harvesting the ‘honey’ part of the hive without destroying the entire hive. This protects bee larvae and allows the bees to rebuild the honey comb.

The method is both sustainable and scientific, leaving enough honey for comb regeneration. This harvesting technique promotes bee conservation and also contributes to preserving forest ecology. Soligas are expert honey collectors and their love of the forest land makes them fiercely protective of all life in the forest area. They believe that the bees have the first right to the honey comb and as such only a small amount of honey is collected from each hive.

What is raw honey?
Raw Honey is honey as it exists in the beehive or as obtained by extraction, settling or straining. Raw honey is packed with a lot of nutrition as it retains most of the natural therapeutic properties of honey including enzymes, bioflavonoids, and antioxidants. That is why many people prefer raw honey or Organic raw honey. Himalaya Soliga Forest Honey is Organic raw honey, filtered using gravity filtration. It is prepared using stringent organic honey production and processing standards in which heating to high temperatures is not allowed. In fact, compared to other honey, Himalaya Soliga Forest honey has 7 times more bioflavonoids and 3 times more antioxidants! Antioxidants protect the body from cell damage.

Is pollen in honey good for health?
Bee pollen is a great source of amino acids. Amino acids are a powerhouse of protein molecules, the building blocks of the body. There are 20 different amino acids of which 10 cannot be synthesized by the body out of other compounds and are referred to as essential amino acids. These essential amino acids must be acquired from dietary sources. Bee Pollen contains all of these essential amino acids in varying quantities. Bee pollen is also wonderfully rich in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, coenzymes and many other nutritional factors.

Is honey good for weight loss?
Honey and weight loss are often associated. Why is honey the smarter choice over sugar, especially when it comes to weight watching? Refined dietary sugars lack minerals and vitamins and are often called empty calories. They draw upon the body's nutrients to be metabolized into the system. When these nutrients are depleted, metabolizing of cholesterol and fatty acid is impeded. This contributes to higher cholesterol and obesity due to higher fatty acid in the organs and tissues. On the other hand honey, the natural sweetener, contains 22 amino acids and a variety of minerals essential for its metabolism and is therefore helpful in preventing obesity. Drinking lemon juice with a spoonful of honey first thing in the morning is an effective anti-cellulite treatment as it helps to increase body metabolism. In fact, when compared with the same amount of sugar, honey gives 40% less calories to the body! 

Do not refrigerate. Crystallization of honey is a natural phenomenon. To liquefy, place bottle in warm water.
