Unbelievable, but the Egyptians wrote about raw honey back in 5500 B.C., the Indians used it for their religious ceremonies in 1000 B.C. and even the Babylonians have been known to use it in their medicinal practices.
Scientific studies have shown that three tablespoons of honey significantly increase the level of nitric oxide, a chemical found in the blood of men, stimulate the production of testosterone in men and the boron helps the use of estrogen in women.
Dried and freeze-dried fruits and nuts also contain large quantities of elements and vitamins, improving the general level of energy and blood circulation.
If you have ever been to Greece, there is no way you could have escaped their favorite light, refreshing and very tasty aphrodisiac recipe, which includes: cold Greek fat yogurt, honey and nuts.
Turks, on the other hand, have a different recipe for their “Turkish aphrodisiac”: figs stuffed with walnuts. Very tasty too, yet a little dry. Not in our case though, when fruits and nuts are soaked in 100% natural raw honey!
