What is a honeycomb

A honeycomb is nothing more than beeswax and raw honey.
The honeycomb is a building of hexagonal beeswax cells that fill up the inside of the beehive.
Hexagonal is used by more animals because of the strength and this will reduce weight also.

The beeswax is what honeycomb are made of.
This is a complex process that is done buy the honey bees and the worker bees.

The honey bees
The honey bees have to eat honey to make beeswax. They have eight glands that have openings in their abdomen. The beeswax hardens there and becomes flaky clear fat also known as scales.

The worker bees
The worker bees than chew and soften these scales and they form the hexagon cell structure known as the honey comb.

The honeycomb and its purpose

The queen will lay her eggs in the cells that are made and also pampered by the workers because they contain the honey bees.
They are also called the brood cells of the hive, and they are the future of the colony.

Nutrition values of the honeycomb

Since the honeycomb is not much more than beeswax. The beeswax itself does not have a lot of nutritional value besides small amount of vitamin A.
The main real good benefits of the beeswax is that it is a great dietary fiber, also called roughage and the ultimate raw honey in the honeycomb.

    My sister told me that a lot of our relatives are suffering from many ailments that are related to digestion, and she wants me to help them in any way I can. It’s interesting to know that comb honey has many dietary fibers which could be something that could help them with their indigestion and constipation problems. I think I’ll buy some if I can get them for wholesale since I plan to give some to them for our family gathering next month.

      Angela,
      If it will help also depend on several other things of course.
      Diet changes can be taken step by step and using natural honeycombs can be a good start.
      Try to talk to them about making more healthy choices.
      Good luck!

      Edward
