Ethical production matters

The bee colony is kept away from human residences or any other bee colony to ensure that it remains free from the varroa mite – which most honey-bee colonies suffer with. Once more, only natural plants and herbs are used as a deterrent for keeping mites at bay. No chemicals or pesticides are used at all. The colony of bees have year-round access to endemic herbs and plants to nourish on, which could help to fight various diseases.

The power of antioxidants
Honey has long been researched for its antioxidant properties – the antioxidant properties of honey are related to the brightness of the honey; the darker honey has higher value of antioxidant. It has been showed that the phenolic compounds are the major responsible factor for antioxidant activity of honey, since the phenolic level is related to radical absorbance activity values of honey.*
Antioxidants reduce oxidative stress in the body by mopping up free radicals. Scientists have linked oxidative stress to a range of chronic health conditions. By eating an antioxidant-rich diet, people could reduce their risk of chronic disease.**
Research has shown that taking a study of participants that consumed 4 tablespoons of honey high in polyphenols for 29 days, resulted in a higher level of antioxidants recorded in their blood. Researchers at Heidrun Gross of the University of California discovered that antioxidants are thought to protect humans from disease, by slowing potentially dangerous disease processes in the body, by mopping up free radicals – unstable compounds that can damage healthy cells and compromise cellular function.
High in polyphenols
Centauri honey is rich and natural, it has one the highest percentage of polyphenols at 77.65mg. The beneficial effect of honey on human health derives mainly from its content in phenolic compounds. Polyphenols are one of the most important groups of compounds occurring in plants. They are associated with many health benefits.
