Global Country of World Peace -- NEWSFLASH for Great Britain

Announcement from Maharishi Ayurveda Products, UK -
special new product now available


What is Maharishi Vedic Honey?
Maharishi Honey is the first Vedic Organic product to become available in
the United Kingdom. It is produced on Maharishi Vedic Farms, managed
According to Maharishi Vedic Apiculture, by wild bees in the pure unpolluted
atmosphere of the virgin tropical forests of Brazil.

Maharishi Vedic Apiculture is a Natural Law-based farming technology based
in the Vedic Knowledge in India. The Vedic Knowledge of India upholds
Natural Law on all levels of production, promoting the intelligence of the
soil, the farmer and the crop. Consequently its crops are most healthy and
nourishing for all.

Is it really organic?
Because bees fly only up to 5 kilometres from their hives all the land
within a radius exceeding 5 kilometres from the hives must be certified
organic to allow the certifying agency to certify the honey that comes from
it as organic. Also the foundation beeswax must be organic or tested free of
chemicals and the honey itself must be tested free of pesticides and other
pollutants. All these requirements are met.

Is it really Vedic agriculture?
The full details of Maharishi Vedic Apiculture are a trade secret but the
producers confirm that the bee hives face east to the rising sun, that the
appropriate Vedic sounds that enliven specific laws of nature are heard by
the bees and that the honey is collected at an auspicious time.

Honey in Maharishi's Vedic Approach to Health
Maharishi Ayurveda considers that honey is a valuable substance and is
traditionally used sparingly, as a Food Supplement, to balance all three
doshas (see <> for an
explanation of the three doshas - Vata, Pitta & Kapha). Honey is
particularly recommended as the best sweetener for those who wish to avoid
increasing Kapha dosha.

Honey is also recommended as an anupan, or vehicle, for increasing the
effectiveness of other specific Maharishi Ayurveda food supplements and
Maharishi Honey would be ideal for this purpose.

Maharishi Ayurveda warns that honey should not be heated above 40 degrees
centigrade - approximately body temperature - otherwise it loses its
nourishing qualities and can have some negative qualities. Therefore, do not
mix it with very hot drinks or use it in cooking.

The Puran, a branch of the Vedic literature, explains that the sun has
different qualities during the 12 months of the year. Maharishi's Vedic
Approach to Health connects these 12 qualities to corresponding structures
and functions in the human physiology - for example the 12 cranial nerves
that control the five senses.

The specific qualities of the sun in the different months also naturally
influence the mechanics of the bees' honey production, giving specific
beneficial qualities to the honey. The first batches of Maharishi honey were
produced in the months of August to October 2002. Honey produced in August
and September would be expected to be particularly nourishing for the Optic
nerve and sense of sight while that produced in September and October is
expected to be nourishing for the Facial nerve and the sense of taste.

The Taste
The honey has a light and clear taste without any cloying quality
Comments from users are universally complementary and vary from:
"The best honey ever" to "It is a very nice honey."

Quality testing
Maharishi Honey has been tested in a variety of ways by three leading
laboratories in Germany and Japan confirming its high quality. The Food
Research Laboratory of Tokyo found that it has antibacterial properties,
while the German labs found that it contains:
Vitamins: B6, C1, thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), pantothenic acid, folic
acid, biotin.
Essential minerals: calcium, copper, chromium, iron, magnesium, manganese,
selenium, silicon, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, zinc.
Amino acids: 21 amino acids including 7 essential amino acids, the
