SHILAJIT AND HONEY
As some of you maybe noticed, we have launched a brand new product. Its content is simple yet amazingly complex, connecting the beneficial effects of pure mother nature. Of course, we’re talking about Mountaindrop Shilajit and chestnut honey. Both ingredients have been very carefully chosen, ensuring a quality product for your health. But, as always, we’re a firm believer in knowledge, leaving no stone unturned. So…
Firstly, honey has been known to humans since the dawn of time. It’s had many uses, ranging from medicine to eating. It’s still very popular today since we know it’s full of vitamins, amino acids, and other healthy ingredients.
Secondly, just to clarify, there are many different types of honey. We divide it into three basic categories: single origin, multi flower, and local. The origin of the honey further determines the flavor and color of the honey. This way we get darker types and lighter types of honey. Some of the more popular types are buckwheat, forest, sage, clover, chestnut or acacia honey. However, not every type of honey is of the same quality in terms of nutritional ingredients. In general, honey consists of approximately 80% sugar, and the other 20% represents the above-mentioned nutrients. The sugar is composed of different levels of fructose and glucose, meaning that the ratio between these two determines the liquidity of the honey.
The rest of the honey is vitamins (B1, B2, B6, C, pantothenic acid), minerals(Cu, Na, K, P, Ca, Si, Mg, Fe, Mn), amino acids (proline, phenylalanine…), enzymes (amylase, acid phosphatase, catalase, glucose oxidase..), acids (phosphoric acid, acetic, malic, citric, lactic, butyric, succinic, pyroglutamic, gluconic, formic acid), flavonoids (quercetin, anthocyanins, catechins) and anti-bacterial substances.
CHESTNUT HONEY AND ITS SUPERIOR NUTRITIONAL CONTENT

For instance, it has been researched that it contains very healthy doses of calcium, manganese, and potassium. Chestnut honey actually contains a lot more fructose than glucose, so it can even be used for diabetics in some cases, but as always, check with your doctor first before trying this.
Anti-bacterial properties of the honey is a much-researched topic, where it was discovered that quality honey could have a powerful impact on many pathogenic bacteria including Enterobacter aerogene, E. Coli, Salmonella california, Salmonella Typhimurium, Shigella sonnei, Staphylococcus aureus, and Staphylococcus epidermis. It was also proved that it’s very effective against bacteria called P. Aeruginosa which is a very common problem with infections of burn wounds and scalds.
Furthermore, It does wonders on the streptococci found in your mouth, meaning it can have a positive effect on the health of your teeth. It has a noticeable effect on periodontitis which is a very common problem for many people around the globe.
