Research conducted at Brunswick Laboratories, Wareham, Massachusetts—the leading laboratory in the USA on the ORAC assay (to determine antioxidant capacity)—found that Maharishi Vedic Organic Honey has significant antioxidant properties, according to the normal range measured in honey. Antioxidants eliminate free radicals, the reactive compounds in the body that contribute too many serious diseases.

Enhanced by Vedic farming technologies, Maharishi Vedic Organic Honey offers a unique combination of purity and nutritional benefits, documented by laboratory tests. Maharishi Vedic Organic Honey contains a wide array of vitamins, essential minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, as found in extensive research performed by leading laboratories in Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and the USA.

According to the ancient texts of Vedic Medicine, Ayur-Veda, honey is easily digestible and supports improved digestion. Maharishi Vedic Organic Honey, as a nourishing food, supports health and longevity. It enhances the immune system: Honey can stimulate B-lymphocytes and T-lymphocytes to multiply, thus boosting the immune system. It is very nourishing to the natural healing process.

Four main characteristics of honey are responsible for its antibacterial properties:

∙ Osmolarity: The high osmolarity of honey kills bacteria and fungi by drawing water from their cells.

∙ Acidity: Honey has a pH value of around four, and is therefore acidic. This acidity inhibits the growth of most bacteria.

∙ Hydrogen peroxide production: Honey has the necessary components to produce minuscule amounts of H2O2 over a prolonged period of time. This slow-release capability makes honey an ideal substance to use in the treatment of wounds and bacteria-caused disorders.

∙ Floral nectar component: Some nectars contain as yet unknown substances with antibacterial properties. Flavonoids, which are beneficial substances produced by plants, are also found in honey and are felt by some to contribute to honey's antibacterial properties. In combination, these four values make honey a unique and powerful antibacterial agent.

In Ayur-Veda, honey is called Rasayana, because of its rejuvenating action in the physiology. One of the most important Ayur-Vedic texts, the Charaka Samhita, defines a Rasayana as 'that which promotes strength and immunity against diseases.'
