KNOW YOUR GLO: Oh Honey!

This is honey that has not been processed, heated or pasteurized in any way. Raw honey contains living enzymes, vitamins and minerals that traditional processed honey loses during manufacturing. Raw honey has been coveted since ancient times because of its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties known to support healing.

People who suffer from seasonal allergies have found relief in consuming local raw honey because it contains small amounts of pollen from the very same sources that bring about their allergies, helping boost their body’s immunity.

Noted Warning:
Never give honey to an infant because of the rick of botulism. Infants do not have a developed enough immune system to handle the possibility of bacteria in raw honey.

People with severe allergies should be careful consuming honey since it is not possible to tell how much pollen could be contained in the honey.

KNOW YOUR GLO: Apples.

There are tons of reasons why an apple a day will keep the doctor away…

Apples are loaded with antioxidants. These antioxidants reduce the risks of cancer and heart disease.
Apples are also commonly recommended for regulating blood sugar. They contain fiber that will keep you feeling full and also slow the release of sugars in your blood.

If you are watching your blood sugar levels opt for your apple to be blended (like the Green Beast as a smoothie.)
