Honey has been used to heal wounds from the battlefield, cure stomach problems, and supposedly give Egyptian women their silky smooth skin.
It’s also pretty tasty and has a blend of sugar, enzymes, vitamins, and amino acids that sets it apart from all other sweeteners.
Honey’s Health Benefits
Let’s have a look at what this delicious sweetener can do for our health.
Soothe a Sore Throat & Irritating Cough
Honey is a great food to have on hand if you’re struck down with a cold or flu.
One study has shown that 2 teaspoons of honey is actually as effective as a common cough suppressant ingredient in soothing coughing at night time.
The World Health Organization lists honey as a demulcent – a substance that forms a soothing film over your mouth and throat to relive pain and inflammation, meaning it will probably help that scratchy, sore throat you have from those coughing fits.
A Natural Energy Source
With 17 g of carbohydrates per tablespoon, the energy boost you’ll get from honey comes with the added bonus of extra nutrients – something you don’t get in conventional sports drinks or sodas.
A Little Goes a Long Way …
I like to add a spoonful to my smoothies now and then – especially before the gym to supercharge my workout. It’s also really good stirred into oatmeal or on a wholegrain bagel with sliced banana.

Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.
If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.
To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.
FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING
Many companies use shipping and handling fees to increase their profit margins, but here at Legion Athletics, we hate profit so our shipping is 100% free!
Okay, we don't exactly hate profit, but we do offer 100% free shipping to everywhere in the world because it makes people you like happy, and that makes us happy.
So, if you live in the United States, your order ships free regardless of order size, and if you live anywhere else, your order ships free when it’s over $99.
Why the restriction on international orders?
Unfortunately shipping outside of the US is very expensive and if we didn't require a minimum order size, we'd lose a lot of money. That said, most customers spend about $100 with us each time they shop, so this setup is a win-win.
