Wellness Encyclopedia: The Benefits of Raw Honey

Wellness Encyclopedia: The Benefits of Raw Honey

The golden wonder that is raw honey can help keep you at the top of your game this season…

It’s a tough pill to swallow, but it’s true: Cold and flu season is almost here. While I’m celebrating the arrival of fall like the best of them, it took one 30°F morning this week to remind me that along with picking pumpkins and brainstorming Halloween costumes, ensuring healthy immunity should be at the top of my to-do list. I love this time of year, so the last thing I want is to be sidetracked by a cough or sore throat. Luckily my first line of defense just happens to be delicious and all natural: Organic, locally-sourced raw honey. The cloudy variety that comes straight from happy bees tended to by a kind keeper. Why honey? The benefits are almost too numerous to list, but today I’ve tried. Read on to learn why raw honey could help keep you at the top of your game this season.

What’s the difference between raw honey and regular honey?  

Regular, commercial honey, the kind that typically comes in a bear-shaped container and runs clear and easy from the jar, is filtered and then pasteurized at a high temperature to kill off any yeast that may be present. Raw honey is unprocessed and unpasteurized to preserve the beneficial nutrients present. While commercial honey still tastes amazing and is an adequate substitute for liquid sweetener in recipes, it lacks the same incredible benefits of raw honey. To see whether or not the raw honey you’ve purchased is truly raw, take a spoonful and place it in a glass of water. If it settles to the bottom, it’s raw. However, if it dissolves easily and sticks the the edges of the glass, it could be processed and even counterfeit (yes, counterfeit honey is a thing).

Benefits of raw honey.

So, what are all these incredible nutrients available in raw, unprocessed honey? If you’re prone to seasonal allergies, local raw honey could help! Raw honey contains bee pollen, which could help your body adjust to the pollen in the air when consumed. By eating honey produced locally, you consume trace amounts of the same pollen that could be wreaking havoc via allergies, helping to regulate your body to the pollen in the air. By regularly eating raw honey, your body could build up antibodies and produce less histamine when allergy season rolls around.

Trouble sleeping? A little raw honey before bed could help you sleep by helping to promote the production of melatonin. Similar to sugar, raw honey generates a rise in insulin, which produces serotonin, which is eventually converted to melatonin. Try adding a small amount of honey to a mug of tea before bed to help you relax and ready your body for rest.

As cold and flu season fast approaches, raw honey should be at the forefront of your seasonal sickness arsenal. Soothe a sore throat and suppress a cough with a spoonful of raw honey, which not only soothes but contains antibacterial properties to shorten the lifespan of a cold. Raw honey has been found to be as effective as traditional cough syrup in treating a sore throat and reducing mucus production (gross, but true). Honey is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, meaning that not only will it not go bad (as long as it’s kept pure and free of contamination from water and other factors), but the same antibacterial and antifungal properties can benefit the body by supporting immunity and warding off minor colds and seasonal illnesses. These same antibacterial properties are incredibly beneficial for acne-prone skin and raw honey has long been used as an ingredient in masks and even as a cleanser.

How to use raw honey.

Raw honey is incredibly versatile, but in order to harness its full range of benefits, it’s best consumed straight from the jar (tough, I know). However, it makes a great substitute for processed sugar if you’re willing to sacrifice a bit of its nutritional power. Sub honey for corn sugar in most recipes where it’s called for, or add a small amount to coffee or tea in place of white sugar. Tough workout ahead? Take a spoonful of raw honey beforehand to power through. Or, put some of our favorite tried and tested raw honey recipes to work:

What Models Snack On: Kalumi Beauty Food Bars

What Models Snack On: Kalumi Beauty Food Bars

Designed to give you a glow on the go….

“No girl wants clunky vitamins or busted powder packs gunking up their vintage Chanel bag.” This was the inspiration for models Chrissy Blair and Jayla Harnwell to launch Kalumi Beauty Food, a new line of protein bars with super tasty flavors, cool packaging and good-for-you ingredients that will keep you going on non-stop days.

Before dreaming up the brand, co-founders Blair and Harnwell dealt with their fair share of “inner and outer” ailments. They were tired of covering up beauty problems with makeup and hair extensions, and grabbing whatever sugar-y, low-nutrient snacks they could find in airports and random stores while rushing in between casting calls.

So the duo cooked up an alternative in their tiny New York City apartment: nutrient-rich bars packed with marine collagen peptides to build healthy hair, skin and nails — plus beauty superfoods like vitamin-rich sweet potatoes and coconut. In place of fake sugars, they rely on organic, fair-trade yacon syrup sourced from Peru. The result: a protein bar that actually tastes good (read: no weird aftertaste!) and balances your body so you can stay energized for hours, the natural way.

The three flavor options includes Sweetie Pie, with coconut, vanilla and cinnamon; Lemon Love with rosemary, zesty lemon and sea salt; and Cocoa Kiss with cocoa butter, cacao nibs and sweet potato. Everything is GMO-, gluten-, dairy- and soy-free. Consider these your much, much healthier version of a brownie — and one that you can eat every day for optimal beauty.

On-the-Go Beauty & Wellness

On-the-Go Beauty & Wellness

You’ve got a trip coming up and it’s time to pack… consider some of these tried-and-true go-to’s for that overnight bag…

Whether you’re out of space in your bag (you just need that fifth pair of shoes) or you just can’t be bothered to schlep your whole beauty-and-wellness routine, we’ve rounded up some of the best on-the-go products to take with you. Happy travels!

Spending a lot of time in nature?

Ah, the great outdoors: Excellent for reconnecting with nature and getting off the grid, not so great when it comes to access to the running water you need to wash your face every night. If you want to go full primal, by all means… but if you’d rather stick to some sort of skincare routine on the trail, cleansing cloths are your best bet.

Juicy Bamboo’s Natural Facial Cleansing Cloths are ideal here because they cleanse and wipe away a day’s worth of sweat, bug spray and mountain dirt while also depositing essential oils and vitamins to keep skin nourished. (Just remember to take the used cloths and packets with you — not littering!)

Getting on a plane, train or bus?

When you’re packed into a small space with a bunch of strangers for a prolonged period of times, germs are pretty much inevitable. So if you’re flying, busing or training your way anywhere, make sure you load up on vitamins and minerals to keep your immune system in tip-top shape.

Luckily, the 8 Greens tablets make it incredibly easy to treat your body right on the go. Crammed with a nourishing blend of spirulina, kale, spinach, chlorella, wheatgrass, barley grass, aloe vera and blue green algae, they pack a nourishing punch of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals — and all you have to do is drop one a day into your water bottle.

Relaxing on a beach?

First and foremost, make sure sunscreen has a place in your bag. You don’t want to fry on the first day of your trip and be miserable and burnt and peeling for the rest of the vacation. For travel purposes, opt for the ease of an SPF stick like Salt And Stone’s Face SPF 50 or Bare Republic’s Mineral SPF 50 Sport Sunscreen Stick. They’re easy to toss in a bag, take up almost no space and are a breeze to apply.

When you’re done on the sand, you’ll want to be sure you totally remove the sunscreen from your skin, which is where an oil cleanser (like the one the one in this Face the Day skincare kit from Kopari) comes in handy. The toner will also help to reduce any accidental redness and the face cream makes sure your sun-kissed skin stays well-hydrated.

Sightseeing in a big city?

Cities are great for the culture they offer, the never-ending list of possible things to do and see, and of course, the food. And while that last one is no doubt delicious, vacation eating can sometimes send your digestive system into a tailspin. So if you know you’re on your way to a food mecca, make sure to toss a few packets of The Super Elixir Alkalizing Greens Sachets in your bag. The blend of omegas, fiber, vitamins and minerals will help restore your body’s pH balance and promote digestion, even if you’re eating eight meals a day (no judgement –vacation food is the best food).

Grow Your Glow, Part 2: Digestion

Grow Your Glow, Part 2: Digestion

In this 4-part series you’ll learn to amp up your baseline glow, taking your skin to the next level of healthy and gorgeous…

Your gorgeous glow: you know it’s there, but there are some days (weeks even…) when it feels like it’s playing hard to get. A stressful time, a few too many indulgences, a stretch of weather that leaves you feeling blah — these routine life situations influence the way your skin behaves, and in turn what you see in the mirror.

If you missed week 1 on nutrition that will grow your glow, check it out here. This week, we look beyond your meals into the way your body receives food.

Digest to Grow Your Glow

It’s simply not enough to eat for your beauty — if you’re serious about skin glow, you also need to support your body in digesting your food well. The population of bacteria residing in your digestive system (which outnumbers your cells 10 to 1!) has major influence over how well you can utilize the beautifying nutrients in your diet. Cultivating a healthy balance of bacteria in your digestive system is step number one toward great digestion; adding a probiotic supplement and fermented foods to your daily diet will help you do that. But there’s even more that you can do to make sure mealtime — and its after-effects — run smoothly.

First, get in the habit of sipping water about 15 minutes before you begin a meal. If you’re at a restaurant, this could simply mean drinking the water on your table while you peruse the menu. But elsewhere it could require a bit more planning and thought before diving in with your fork. A pre-meal drink of water hydrates your digestive tract and prepares your body for food, improving your assimilation without diluting the digestive acids in your stomach that work hard while you’re eating.

Next, adopt a relaxed mealtime mindset and aim to be present at mealtime. No one sets out to eat a meal under stress, but it happens often — most often as a result of multitasking at mealtime. Shut off the TV, put your phone across the room, and savor your food, alone or with company you enjoy. Take a few deep breaths before you eat, or say a mealtime mantra, like those found in Eat Pretty Every Day. Besides loving your food more (and preventing overeating), this practice gives your body the chance to enter a parasympathetic ‘rest and digest’ state where it can devote the proper energy and resources to fully breaking down each bite you take.

Ready to feel and see greater glow? Incorporate these two powerful strategies into your diet, and you’ll be amazed at their glow-boosting effects. Check back next week for two more key ways to grow your glow!

Drink Dope, Look Dope

Drink Dope, Look Dope

These new protein powders promise endless energy the natural way…

Sylwia Wiesenberg is one of those women who never stops moving. Her body — and mind — is constantly in an active state, whether she is doing planks or lunges as part of her underground Tonique Fitness classes in New York City or shooting workout videos at high altitudes around the world. The secret to her non-stop energy, besides incredible genes: a daily glass of beet juice, which the Polish-born beauty grew up drinking regularly in her native Warsaw. Realizing the concoction’s wellness superpowers inspired her to launch DOPE Naturally, a line of plant-based protein powders infused with beets and other star botanicals. Here, Wiesenberg stops — just for a second — to fill us in on her dope lifestyle.

Name: Sylwia Wiesenberg

Born in: Warsaw, Poland

Currently living in: West Village, New York

What inspired you to launch DOPE Naturally?

From a big picture perspective, it was inspired by my unconditional love for food and sharing it with others. For me, cooking for others is the ultimate way to show love for them, and to show gratitude that they are in my life. When I taught my underground Tonique classes in Manhattan, I brought juices, salads and raw chocolates for those who attended to be tortured for two hours or longer, to reward them with love.

I was asked one day after a workout, “What do you take to have so much energy?” I answered right away without even thinking: Oh, I dope…I mean, I dope naturally, meaning food is my natural drug for endless energy and ageless beauty. When I said that, I really meant I eat beets and other superfoods daily. I could not stop thinking about the way I said it, and the name of my brand was born. DOPE Naturally is based on principles that I believe in — that superfoods and outstanding quality ingredients are the natural way to dope, to enhance our beauty and performance; that your beauty counter starts in your kitchen.

How do you describe Tonique for those who haven’t tried your method?

I think I have been doing Tonique since I was born, as I really don’t remember a time when I didn’t work out. When I came to NYC, I was working for an investment bank. It was a great job that paid well, but it wasn’t my passion. I quit my job and started doing what I love to do daily — designing movement and cooking. I chose to continue developing the most unique, intense workout method based on the principle of never stop moving (literally you don’t take a break for two hours) to shape an ageless body, fight gravity, and help women become confident both physically and mentally.

I was teaching for free for few years to see how the method really worked. I had celebrities and many others who loved Tonique and the way I fed them with fresh and powerful superfoods. Afterward I decided to share Tonique with a wider audience, creating videos that you can take with you anywhere. The purpose of each workout is to positively torture you (hahaha) and give your body the tone that no other workout delivers, and to make the world a smaller and fitter place, by allowing people to travel with me daily on their fitness journey.

Tell us about your childhood in Poland. Was wellness even part of your lifestyle then?

I could write a book about this, but will try to be brief! Despite the fact that we had so little available when I was growing up in Communist Poland, from food to clothing (and forget about any luxury), I have really vivid and beautiful memories of my childhood. When I think of my childhood, I smile even more. Perhaps because when I was growing up, nobody had anything, and there was absolutely nothing on the shelves in stores, so you never thought that you were missing something. Springs and summers were the most fun as I spent time outdoors running, playing ball and swinging on “trzepak” it was literally a metal rack — to clean your carpet instead of vacuuming it — and when it was not occupied kids used to do acrobatic swings and hang upside down from it for hours. The best part of summers was going to orchards and collecting fruits. I still feel the sweet juice running down my chin; juice from mulberries, plums, and cherries.

Starting at three years old I was doing “rytimka” — rhythmic classes with a strict piano teacher playing classic melodies. It was all about posture, steps and rhythm — no laughing was allowed. Later I joined a gymnastics team that required 4 hours of training daily, and on top of it I was on my school running team and part of a program called Brave Like a Soldier — imagine all the skinny girls on this program climbing walls, trees, jumping obstacles. The best part was shooting at targets and throwing old grenades.

In my household, my mom was very strict about what I ate. An absolute must was a glass of water with lemon first thing in the morning, followed by eight to twelve ounces unadulterated beet juice (not diluted and no added fruit to make it sweeter). We ate three meals a day with no snacking in between (we didn’t have anything to snack on anyway). The rule was to eat small meals, which were full of nutrition. I never developed a snacking habit or a love for soda or sugar, although I do love ice cream!

What makes beets so unique as wellness food?

Beets in Poland are like oranges in Florida — everywhere! Our grandmothers, mothers and coaches educated us on the superpowers of beets! I don’t remember ever not drinking beet juice. Later, when I moved to Australia, I used to “dope” on beet juice before morning speed training and athletics at university. I added a few tropical fruits to enhance the beets’ power and to make it taste better, but beets always dominated my daily diet. I strongly believe that beets are not just a great way to enhance your performance, but they also are a miracle vegetable that works to advance your skin tone, ageless beauty and glow. Beets are definitely my secret weapon.

What was the Polish recipe and technique for making beet juice?

My mother’s way is straight like whisky without rocks!

10-15 beets peeled and cleaned

1/2 lemon

Juice beets, add a touch of fresh lemon juice — the vitamin C in lemon allows faster absorption of the nitrates in beets and other nutrients.

Drink it immediately out of the juicer — my mom and coaches used to tell me to drink it fresh and fast before it oxidizes.

Today I dope with my powders since they give me exactly what I need. I also like blended beet, using the entire beet, not wasting the pulp:

– Put two to three whole peeled and cleaned beets into a blender (Vitamix).

– Add a touch of water or coconut water and blend it to perfection.

– Drink it in the morning or at night before/after a long hard day and workouts.

DOPE Naturally makes it easy — no peeling or cleaning is required. You also get the benefit of eating awesome superfoods from around the world like dragonfruit, mangosteen and baobab.

How long did it take you to formulate DOPE Naturally’s powders? What was the biggest challenge you faced?

When I started Dope Naturally, I knew what I wanted, but I had to find the right suppliers and develop the proper formulations. It takes time and I am very picky and particular when it comes to quality. Before DOPE Naturally was released, I tested and tested and tested until I got the blend right. The next challenge was to find the right suppliers; certified organic is a must! It is important to consume organic produce — superfoods that are not destroyed by non-organic farming and chemicals. I add absolutely no sugars, no fillers and no preservatives. There are so many factors that go into making the product and all of them have to be 100 percent right, otherwise it won’t work!

Tell us about Beet Force and Beet Bliss. What are their benefits?

Beet Force is designed to elevate your stamina and wellness and allow greater oxygen flow during workouts, and also has powerful anti-aging properties. Dragonfruit promotes skin health and helps with weight management. Mangosteen has strong cellular renewal properties helping skin appear more youthful, and acts as an anti-inflammatory and potent energy booster. Mulberries are a perfect blood tonic, acting as a cleanser to improve blood circulation, and promoting skin and hair glow.

Beet Bliss is beet blend with cacao, baobab and mangosteen. Cacao supports cell rejuvenation, and is rich in magnesium, vitamin C and omega 6 fatty acids — it’s perfect for a youthful complexion. Cacao also promotes blood flow to your skin and has been known to be a powerful aphrodisiac. Baobab promotes collagen formation, protects cells from oxidative stress (free radicals), helps the absorption of iron, and is a vitamin C powerhouse.

What’s your favorite way to whip up these powders?

I love to blend Beet Force with watermelon chunks or add to cashew yogurt. Beet Bliss I often drink in the afternoon as an energy pick up…I like it with coconut meat and water and a frozen banana. In summer, peaches and Beet Bliss are a blissful way to wake up and feel fresh and not bloated at the beach.

Tell us about Melonaid — a powder that features watermelon seeds. What’s their benefit?

I love watermelons! I never understood when I moved from Poland why so many watermelons don’t have seeds in them. The seeds are actually the best part for beauty. They are full of nutrients, amino acids and rich in plant-based protein… my “babcia” was always telling me that if I eat them, I will grow a watermelon in my belly, but then she used to sprout them and eat them. She did the same with sunflower seeds, and told me about their powers.

For the past year, I have been eating mostly plant-based protein. But I also found that, after eating pea protein powders or hemp, I felt bloated and experienced a funny aftertaste that lingered for hours and made it difficult for me to work out without my belly feeling full. I started blending my own protein potions and most of them had watermelon seeds in them. I also learned more about the beauty benefits of the seeds, and how they support toned skin and muscles. They are perfect and almost flavor free, making it easy to digest and leaving no aftertaste.

Do you have any fun recipes for Melonaid?

I put it in my cashew yogurt, add it to cereals, salads, my favorite nut butters and even make pancakes with it! I love to blend it in smoothies. There are no limits to how you can enjoy it. I even add Melonaid to ice cream. It is delicious and it makes me feel less guilty!

Where do you source your ingredients from?

I work with only organic farms and farmers across the globe. Since many of the ingredients are impossible to find from local farms in US (besides beets), I work with farmers in South East Asia, South and Central America—Nicaragua, Guatamala, Mexico, and Peru—and Africa for baobab.

What other wellness habits do you swear by for staying fit?

Eat fresh (quality food).

Eat less (smaller portions, never feel like you cannot breathe)

Sleep more (I try).

Smile more (always and daily).

Sex (probably the best wellness fundamental!).

What’s next for you and the brand?

DOPE Naturally is my baby that I am going to grow organically. You will see us introduce a number of new products. For me, it is work that I love…I am workaholic and fitness-obsessed so, if I have them both, I am happy.

The Cult French-Girl Beauty Brand You Need to Know About

The Cult French-Girl Beauty Brand You Need to Know About

French girl beauty is getting a little easier and greener: Meet Margaret Halfon, the founder of Studio 78, an under the radar brand that’s just started to reach our shores. All natural and oh-so-chic… 

A Parisian beauty secret is finally landing on our shores: Studio 78, a cool-girl French organic makeup brand that combines luxury pigments with 100 percent Ecocert certified ingredients. Its founder is Margareth Halfon, a super chic “working mama” who honed her beauty expertise at Guerlain, where she helped managed such mega-hits as Terracotta and Météorites. In 2008, Halfon moved to Los Angeles, and totally fell in love with the wellness lifestyle and organic food movement. So much so that when she had a baby a year later, she was realized “we are what we consume,” and no longer wanted chemicals in her body — or her makeup bag. Et violà: the inspiration for her eco-friendly brand was born.

Halfon moved back to Paris and got to work developing an all-natural range that wouldn’t “put aside the notion of pleasure women feel when they buy makeup, and the notion of glamour they also feel when they touch up.” Tapping into her cosmetic background, she wanted to create non-toxic formulas that would soothe the skin but also deliver high-performance pigments. No “compromises!”

Halfon definitely didn’t settle for anything less than amazing. The standouts include We Go Green Loose Powder Eyeshadow, next-level powders infused with organic oils to hydrate the sensitive eye area that come with an innovative sponge applicator so you can layer them on and blend to create a custom look. Très, très chic.

The Eye Pencil, meanwhile, is designed to glide on skin — not tug at it — with a moisturizing base of soft waxes and botanical oils. Also cool: you can trace around your eyes with the pencil or tap the tip along the lash line to create little dots that you then smudge together for a blurred look. So French!!!

The plant-based Mascara gives you beautifully dark lashes with a shot of nourishing jojoba oil and the Liquid Lipstick conditions lips with a creamy texture that lasts for days (and the sponge applicator is just fun).

Every item in the collection has a weightless feel—nothing feels too “done” or made-up. “Makeup should only help you to reveal your own beauty,” explains Halfon. “That’s why all the textures we develop at Studio 78 Paris, are always natural. They must magnify existing beauty and not transform you.” It all fits into Halfon’s beauty mantra: “To feel confident, you must start to love who you are and accept [yourself] as you are.” That, and one last thing, she adds: “Don’t forget to smile, because it is undoubtedly your finest beauty asset.”
