I must say this stuff seems awesome! It's pretty much just a crazy-staining yellow spice called turmeric (a natural anti-inflammatory) mixed with raw honey. You can think of local raw honey like a flu shot for your eyes, nose and sinuses against allergies - it contains small amounts of the allergens, allowing your body to build up it defenses against whatever is causes it to go buck wild in that awful sneezy, itchy way.
I figured if I was gonna mix up vat of the stuff for my girlfriend, I should give it a whirl myself. The turmeric takes a little getting used to, but once I did I kinda started looking forward to my daily dosage of "the boo stuff". I can't fairly evaluate the effectiveness against allergies since I don't have them (yet... DMV area transplants seems to magically manifest allergies after being in the area for awhile). However, I did notice something else. Even with just a tiny 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric honey a couple times a day, my sugar cravings went down significantly! Often when one has a craving for sugar, it's the body's signal that it is seeking nourishing food. This quest is not only for calories; it is an attempt to get all the vitamins, minerals, and qi necessary for optimal functioning. Is boo candy the perfect dessert? You be the judge.
