What Are The BEE-nefits Of HONEY for our Health?

Everybody loves Honey, right? Naah, not the "honey" that you are thinking right now - I mean the real-deal Honey! It has rich sweets that our tastebud wants! And for a sugar-clingy person like me, Honey is the best alternative for refined sugars if consumed moderately. We are just so blessed to have an authentic Honey-inspired Cafe and Shop here in Cebu. Thanks to Mr. Jun Pales and Mr. Dean Ang for founding the Purple Bee Shop & Cafe where we can savor and enjoy raw and healthy Honey every day!

This part of the cafe is also my part, they have different kinds of pasalubongs for tourists too!

You can also hold a meeting here in Purple Bee Cafe and Shop! So quiet in here.

Honey has health benefits to our Body. Try replacing sugar with Honey and you would see the difference internally and externally! It started in ancient times that people use Honey for food and for medical purposes. In this era, Honey is also a huge part of some beauty products, especially on Skin and Face. But have you wondered what are the benefits of Honey for our Health? Here is a summary!

1. Honey has nutrients.

According to National Institute of Health, some of the vitamins found in honey include ascorbic acid, pantothenic acid, niacin, and riboflavin; along with minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc. Now, do you need those expensive daily vitamins?

2. Honey is rich in antioxidants.

Just to be clear, we mean raw honey is rich in antioxidants. What are these antioxidants? Antioxidants help to protect your body from cell damage due to free radicals. Honey has as many antioxidants as some fruits and vegetables.

3.  Honey can help lower blood pressure

Because Honey has a lot of antioxidants, therefore it can help lower blood pressure.

4. Honey is a good substitute for Sugar.

You can ask to add honey instead of sugar.
You can actually ask any expert, they would surely choose Honey than any refined sugar out there. Why?  According to medical news today, sugar is higher on the glycemic index (GI) than honey, meaning it raises blood sugar levels more quickly. This is due to its higher fructose content, and the absence of trace minerals. But honey has slightly more calories than sugar, although it is sweeter, so less may be required.

So basically, it is still dangerous to consume a lot of content of Honey daily but when consumed moderately, it can help a lot in our health factors.

5. Honey has Antibacterial and antifungal properties  

As reported by National Insitute Of  Health, Honey has been widely accepted as food and medicine by all generations, traditions, and civilizations, both ancient and modern. For at least 2700 years, honey has been used by humans to treat a variety of ailments through topical application, but only recently have the antiseptic and antimicrobial properties of honey been discovered. Honey has been reported to be effective in a number of human pathologies. Clinical studies have demonstrated that the application of honey to severely infected cutaneous wounds rapidly clears infection from the wound and improves tissue healing.

6. Honey helps in digestive issues.

Famously, Honey is one of the best home remedies in terms of some kinds of digestive problems such as Constipation, Lost bowel movement (LBM) and ulcers. If you happen to have an issue on pooping, try put honey to your tea. It will surely work. Thanks me later!

Top 5 Tips : How To Burn Post Holiday Fats?

Guilt! This is what I was feeling when I indulged myself to every menu and food served in our table during the Christmas and Holiday season. But I did not feel sorry to myself. In fact, I am more determined to lose these gained fats with my own exercises and activities which can surely be followed and executed even at home.

So, are you excited to know how to burn those celebratory calories? I've been doing research before writing this article. I clicked on my favorite Reader's Digest and WebMD sites and put all needed info into one. Now check this out!

1. Drink More Water

Water has been very useful in everybody's diet. Keep dehydrated and drink more water, thus you might consume less food. Also, a lot of cravings are felt during the Holiday Season but sometimes we mistake thirst for hunger. So I believe next time you get hungry, try to grab a glass of water first and then you'll realize you just need liquid than solid.

2. Shop Till You Drop

You might find this funny but when I read this in WebMD, I really think this is helpful. Shopping from one Store to another really takes a lot of effort and I even see myself in sweat standing and walking from stall to stall. This means calorie burn, right? A little step for a bigger goal!

Enjoy shopping my friends!

3. Walk and Set a Daily Exercise Routine

Walking has always been our easiest and probably the effective way of losing weights. Walking to the nearest store to buy something. Walking to the gym from home. Walking with your dog around the community during Holidays. Just do walk if you can. If you keep up a moderate walking pace, expect to burn 250-300 calories hourly.

Of course, Daily Exercise! I personally recommend Jumping Jack. Buy a jumping rope and get yourself jumping at home with it.  Per WebMD research, Jumping rope is a great calorie-burner. "It's certainly good for the heart," says Peter Schulman, MD, associate professor, Cardiology/Pulmonary Medicine, University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington. "It strengthens the upper and lower body and burns a lot of calories in a short time, but other considerations will determine if it's appropriate for an individual."

4. More Protein Eats!

I read a story about eating more protein means less hungry next meal. Also, protein helps build muscles and fewer fats. So go for protein diets such as chicken, peanuts, low-fat soy drinks, and oatmeal.

5. Less Soda, Easy on Alcohol

According to RD, "Soft drinks are a major source of empty calories in the American diet." which means we drink a lot of soft drinks but they won't satisfy our appetite. In addition, go easy with Alcoholic drinks as they got a lot of calories. Say, for example, a 12-ounce beer has 150 calories and how much more for a margarita which has a bigger calorie punch. Generally, if you crave for some liquid, always grab water or any juices - they are a better alternative.

Enjoy the remaining days of Holiday my friends but don't forget to take it slow!

These Activities Can Burn Fats,Try Them In Danasan Eco Adventure Park!

When it comes to traveling, we always check out some beautiful beaches or maybe just chill with booze and nachos on the poolside. But later we realized this will just add to another problem which is getting other lbs for a week or two which leads us to double time on our exercise and gym routines. But if you wish to find a vacation with adventure and at the same time burn some fats and loss weight? You should try visiting Danasan Eco Adventure Park in Danao Cebu!

Sometimes people love to find and try their limitations when it comes to adventures. And together with my blogger friend,, we were able to conquer our fears of heights, having a great time and fun and of course, burn those fats! So what are those adrenaline rush activities that I recommend for burning those calories while enjoying at the same time? Check out my list!

1. Zipline

Aside from the fact that this activity helps release stress, when you spend the day zip lining you’ll lower your blood pressure and burn plenty of calories, all while having the time of your life! (healthfitnessrevolution) And of course, fresh air is another add-ons!

2. Sky Bike

You definitely know how biking can burn calories. In Danasan Eco Park, you can try it above the sky in a roundtrip ride. So, if you wish to burn more calories, just go to the cashier and get another ticket for this amazing ride!

3. Speedway

Do you know karting can burn 358 per half hour? Yes! According to, Karting has a number of health benefits including an increased heart rate, strength building, improvements in reflexes and reaction time, and burning off calories to help aid weight loss. The research found that the group burned an average of 358 calories per half hour while karting – almost 40% more than calories burnt through jogging.

4. ATV

All Terrain Vehicle or ATV is my favorite ride I did last weekend in Danasan Eco Park. And according to, Sitting is generally frowned upon in the fitness world, but there's an exception to every rule, especially where the rugged terrain is concerned. Sitting on an ATV or a side-by-side as you ride over rocky embankments and through low-water crossings requires core strength and control, as well as mental focus, all of which tax your system and ramp up the calorie burn.

5. Horseback Riding

Do you think horseback riding can just give fun to your life? Think again as this exciting ride can burn up to 200 calories in a 45 minutes time. This is not a fraud as this is supported by Texas A&M University. Actually, this is my second favorite next to ATV Ride.

6. Sky Drop

When you try this heart-pumping ride, Skydrop can help you lose some weights! How? During this ride, you will shout out so hard! And According to thelist, Laughing burns calories by causing your heart rate to rise by 10 to 20 percent. Laughing intensely for an hour can burn as many calories as lifting weight for 30 minutes, those same scientists have found.

7. Wake Boarding

Last weekend, we haven't try wakeboarding since there's no more time. But mind you! According to, wakeboarding can burn up to 500 calories per hour. Waterskiing and wakeboarding target your back, core, abdominal and leg muscles. The effort you will put into pulling with your upper body and pushing with your lower body makes for a whole-body workout. Your legs and core will be engaged throughout the ride.

8. Waterfalls Trekking

Why I love trekking is the benefits of burning calories during hiking. This works both muscle and cardio of our body. This activity can burn from 400-500 calories in an hour! Imagine that? Fun and burning fats together in one!

9. Wall Climbing

Pic by
Just like rock climbing, wall climbing requires full body strength while going up and down the wall. According to, rock climbing can burn anywhere from 500 to 900 calories per hour, provided climbers keep rest to a minimum between routes. Research suggests rock climbing can also build strength, power and bring aerobic and anaerobic fitness levels to new heights.

10. Ropes Course

Most of the time, ropes course is made for team building and development. But aside from this purpose, do you know that this activity can burn from 100-172 calories for 30 minutes?

Of course,  I was personally excited on this kind of exercise, the POUND by Z!NK  at the Treasure Island was then started after lunch.  According to, in POUND class, each participant gets a set of drumsticks. (They’re specially made for the workout and called “rip sticks.”) This high-intensity interval workout incorporates rhythmic movements to get the class literally pounding the floor as they sweat. The genius of POUND class is that the music and high-energy drumming make the time fly past.
