In this quick show today we are going over Chris Kresser’s recent article for Paleo Magazine about the health benefits of raw, natural honey! Sometimes lumped together with other sugars and sweet substances, Chris, believes that this is an undue reputation and that research shows that honey is a great component of a vital, ancestral diet. The article covers some of this research and compares it with its sweet counterparts before going through the five main benefits that can be accrued through its consumption.
