We are discussing the impact of honey in your honeybodies, particularly for diabetic conscious folks and anyone living or exploring a sugar-free lifestyle. We specifically will address the difference between the fructose in raw honey and the glucose in other table sweeteners.
Raw Honey’s resume is as long as the lists for why sunlight and water are good for you. There is a reason why it is considered to be the most ancient sweetener, why there are indigenous populations who have built their entire existence around honey and beekeeping, why science calls it a nutraceutical agent (meaning that its health benefits have been proven, even in the realm of treating and preventing diseases) and why we at Shanti Elixirs source only the best and the highest quality of local, raw-honey for our Jun.
We are often asked about the alcohol content of our Jun since it is made through fermentation. You may have even seen kombuchas that you have to get carded to purchase. Our Jun, however, is non-alcoholic and we’ve decided to give you all the details!
When we trace our way back to our first Jun culture, we find ourselves sitting with Rob Lenfesty, owner of Mandala Chocolate. Although he wasn’t the one specifically who passed it down to us, he is a part of our story.
In honor of World Breastfeeding Week we wanted to answer a question often asked by pregnant and nursing mothers. “Can I drink Jun while pregnant and breastfeeding?” The short answer, yes!
Did you know that over 70% of our immune system lives in our gut? It is crazy to think about, yet it makes a lot of sense when you begin to think about it.
From farmer’s markets to events, pitching to new clients and telling friends what we sell, we have answered the question “What is Jun?” more times than you can imagine.
