Honey used before a workout increases the physical stamina & energy level of the human body since honey is easily absorbed in the blood. Honey used after a work out removes tiredness and fatigue almost instantly. Honey is primarily fructose and glucose so it is quickly absorbed by the digestive system. (Do like the Ancient Greek athletes who took honey for stamina before competing and as a reviver after competition.)
- Dissolve honey in warm water and add mint.
- Pour into a sports bottle and keep in the fridge till ready to use.
Very sweet but it does the trick and tastes good with the mint. I put spring water, creamed honey and whole mint leaves in the blender and blended it until the honey was all mixed in and the leaves were almost indistinguishable. I would make this again maybe with a tad less honey to get some energy!
rita i tried this as i have a bushel of mint thanks i love your recipes dee
Update: Sick and tired of being sick and tired I went back through some home remedy recipes that I had saved- mostly Rita's- and made a few. Holy cow do I feel better! Do try this drink- It is a little sweet for my taste but I added the lemon as I did before and it did the trick. Thanks Rita! (Old Review Great pick me up but VERY sweet. I diluted it with more water and some lemon juice and it was still wonderful. Thanks Rita — Sep 15, 2005)
