    Honey is a sweet, syrup-like substance that bees produce from the nectar of flowering plants. The bees collect the nectar and then consume, digest, and regurgitate it inside the beehive to produce honey. Honey is stored in wax-like structures called honeycombs, which are gathered by humans through the practice of beekeeping.

    Honey contains trace amounts of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, enzymes, amino acids, and flavonoids. These compounds are responsible for some of honey's important health benefits and part of what distinguishes the sweetener from more traditional ones like sugar. Because of honey's trace nutrients, the sweetener has been thought to have antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, along with healing potential for ailments such as sore throats, digestive disorders, and burns.

    Honey is considered to be “one of the most healing substances on earth. It’s been used for thousands of years to treat a wide range of ailments and conditions, both internal and external. It has antiviral, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties. Our raw Greek honey is not pasteurized, filtered, or processed, allowing it to retain its natural health-promoting properties.

    Mastiha is basically resin from the mastiha trees and appears in drops (see photo). While these mastiha trees may grow in other areas in the Mediterranean and produce resin, only the Chios trees produce the mastiha "tears" that have the characteristic aroma, taste and health benefits. Mastiha from Chios also is a P.D.O. (Protected Designation of Origin) product. Historically there have been many references about the healing qualities of mastiha, in recent years research confirms that mastiha does in fact have beneficial qualities. One of the most important findings is that mastiha can work against Helicobacter pylori, a bacteria in the stomach, considered the main cause for gastric ulcers. It also has been found to have antimicrobial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-Crohn effects. For this reason, mastiha is not only used in food and drink, but also in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry.
