Mount Athos Flower Honey with Honeycomb:

Mount Athos Flower Honey with honeycomb is collected by monks of Mount Athos as a diaconate. It is packaged by them, with passion and great care and is an authentic monastic product. The Mount Athos fathers, respecting the goods that the Lord has offered us and following only natural processing methods, offer us pure honey flowers with honeycomb of excellent quality.


Honeycomb honey enhances memory and learning ability, is beneficial during menopause and gives energy and well-being to the body. It is rich in minerals, trace elements and antioxidants and has high phenols.

According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), honey helps with heart health and maintains a balanced level of cholesterol and lipids in the body. It is soothing for the throat.

It does not contain preservatives, chemicals, added sugars or dyes.

Honeycomb from Mount Athos

Honeycomb is rich in carbohydrates and antioxidants. It also contains trace elements from various other nutrients. Its main ingredient is raw honey, which offers small amounts of protein, vitamins and minerals – but consists of 95-99% sugar and water. Because it has not been processed, raw honey contains enzymes such as glucose oxidase, which confer antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. Such enzymes are destroyed by heating and filtration used to process commercial honey. In addition, raw honey is less likely to be contaminated by sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup and also tends to contain more antioxidants than processed honey. Antioxidants are beneficial plant compounds that promote health, reduce inflammation, and protect your body from disease. Their levels can be up to 4.3 times higher in raw than in processed honey. Polyphenols are the main type of antioxidant in honey. Research suggests that they may help reduce the risk of diabetes, dementia, heart disease and even certain types of cancer. The honeycomb also contains beeswax, which provides long-chain fatty acids and alcohols. These compounds may help lower cholesterol levels.

Honeycomb can boost your heart health. Research shows that the long-chain fatty acids and alcohols present in wax can reduce high blood cholesterol levels, a risk factor for heart disease. For example, one review states that beeswax alcohols may help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol by up to 29% while increasing “good” HDL cholesterol by 8-15%. However, the studies in this review used high levels of isolated alcohols derived from beeswax, making it difficult to know whether small amounts of beeswax in the honeycomb would have the same effects. Therefore, honey may have the same cholesterol-lowering ability. One small study gave participants either 70 grams of sugar or honey a day. After 30 days, the honey group increased the “good” HDL cholesterol by 3.3% and reduced the “bad” LDL cholesterol by 5. In addition, replacing sugar with honey can help reduce triglyceride levels by up to 19%. In addition, honey’s antioxidants can help dilate the arteries leading to your heart. In turn, this can increase blood flow and lower blood pressure, potentially reducing the risk of blood clots, heart attack and stroke.

Honeycomb can boost your body’s ability to fight certain bacteria and fungi. For example, test-tube studies show that wax extracts may offer protection against fungi and disease-causing bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans, Salmonella enterica and E. coli. Honey is also known for its antimicrobial properties. Research shows that it can help protect your gut from the intestinal parasite Giardia lamblia. However, human studies are needed to confirm these effects.

  • Honeycomb is generally considered safe to eat.
  • However, because it contains honey, it is at risk of being infected by C. botulinum spores. These are especially harmful to pregnant women and children under 12 months.
  • In some cases, eating large amounts of honeycomb can cause stomach problems.
  • To minimize the risk of this happening, it may be best not to consume large amounts of honeycomb daily – or just spit out the waxy cells.
  • In addition, people with allergies to bee or pollen should be careful with the honeycomb, as it can cause an allergic reaction.
  • It is also important to note that despite its many possible benefits, honeycomb remains very high in sugar.
