With Pure, Raw Honey From Carmel Honey Company
The cold and flu season is upon us and this time it’s hitting us harder than usual.
Carmel, CA, Feb 18, 2018 —The cold and flu season is upon us and this time it’s hitting us harder
than usual. Americans spend billions of dollars every year on over-the-counter cold medicines, but
relief can be as close as your kitchen cupboard — raw honey from Carmel Honey Company. For
centuries people have been using various herbs and natural foods as medicine. Almost every mother
has her own home remedy for a cough, cold or sore throat. Why do these remedies persist? Because
honey actually works!
Raw honey has many medicinal uses, from soothing coughs and healing wounds to promoting good
digestion, as an antiseptic, an antibiotic and for warding off allergies. It’s no wonder the ancient
Greeks called honey, “the nectar of the gods.”
Honey is not only delicious straight from the jar, but soothes a sore throat and tempers a cough. Put
it in tea , coffee, a smoothie or just eat it straight from a spoon - as a natural cough suppressant. One
tried-and-true home cough remedy involves hot water mixed with lemon and honey. Some even
swear by adding whiskey to help cut the mucous.
Honey is filled with antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and can also destroy parasites, viruses,
and even some tumor cells. Raw honey is an antiseptic that never spoils.
Raw honey is loaded with trace minerals, organic enzymes, and antioxidants and nutrients like
vitamins B and C and magnesium. Honey also contains pre- and probiotics, and an array of
flavonoids and phenolic acids that serve as antioxidants. That makes it a powerful ingredient for
Honey is relatively acidic and remains acidic even when diluted, maintaining a pH of approximately
3.5. Nothing foreign enjoys living in this pH-rich environment. Honey is alkaline-forming in the
body and once in the stomach, it can actually alkalinize your system. Alkaline-forming foods are
crucial to any diet because they help neutralize the acidic waste produced naturally by cells, keeping
your insides clean and supporting the body’s immune system.
Bees make a protein that they add to the honey, called Defensin-1. A large majority of honey’s
antibacterial properties come from this protein. Basically, these are ancient natural antibiotics that
team up with antimicrobial activity against a range of microorganisms.
While honey is not a cure-all and no single health-promoting property is more important than the
other, the multi-functional nature of raw honey is the key to its remarkable healing powers.

About Carmel Honey Company:
Jake Reisdorf is the chief beekeeper and owner of Carmel Honey Company. He started his business
as part of a school project where his teacher assigned professions to each student and directed them
to research the profession and build a presentation on it.
While researching his assigned profession of website designer, Jake, 11 years old at the time,
decided to take it one step further and actually create a real website. At that time, Jake had taken
one beekeeping class with his Dad and thought it would be cool to design a website about honey
Not only did Jake get an “A” on the project, it inspired him and spurred him to start Carmel Honey
Company. That was five years ago.
His passion for honey bees grew as he learned about Colony Collapse Disorder and real honey.
Expanding his research and education drove Jake to learn more about honey and bees and
ultimately decide it was critical to give back.
The “Jake Gives Back” program includes sharing honey bee knowledge with kids and adults of all
ages. Whether he is in a classroom speaking to first-grade students, or at a corporate event talking
with business owners and seasoned professionals, his passion and appreciation of how honey bees
impact our world is infectious. He also “gives back” by making a financial donation to honey bee
research and education organizations.
Jake is a freshman at Carmel High School and keeps his knowledge of apiology (the scientific study
of bees) current by continuing to manage his own honey bee hives and attending industry
conferences throughout the country.
