Functional honey to strengthen immunity, which contains black cumin seeds and four beneficial plants of our climate that “steal” everything that harms your health.
According to legend, at the time of the terrible plague in France, four thieves robbed the graves of the unfortunates who died from this terrible disease. In that way, they were exposed not only to the dangers of the law, but also to a much more destructive exposure to the infection. Four plants saved them from the plague, and mercy from the law in exchange for the secret of their survival. Hence the name “Four Thieves“, known as honey to strengthen immunity.
The fifth thief is the leader of the group and was never caught, but legend has it that he was an Arab and that his main weapon against the disease was black cumin. As part of the preparation “Four Thieves”, all plants have bactericidal action, but three plants also have antiviral action.
Thief 1 – Sage cleanses the blood and promotes the secretion of mucus from the respiratory organs, has anti-inflammatory effects and is an excellent aid in the treatment of rheumatism and gout.
Thief 2 – “Lemongrass strengthens the soul and body” claims folk medicine. Paracelsus valued this plant as one of the best and considered it completely restores the body, and a few years ago it was scientifically confirmed that it has antiviral effects. Regulates digestion, heart function, helps with anxiety, fears, and is a good support in the treatment of hypochondria.
Thief 3 – Thyme is a natural antiseptic, stimulates mental and physical functions, and is rich in iron and calcium. Thyme is also a beneficial aid in neurosis, depression, anemia, insomnia.
Thief 4 – Rosemary improves the function of the liver and bile, allows better concentration and memory, has a beneficial effect on blood circulation, reduces nervous tension and helps with physical exhaustion.
Fifth Thief – Black cumin seeds have a very favorable composition of unsaturated fatty acids and biologically active compound thymoquinone and its derivatives, for which scientific studies have confirmed numerous pharmacological effects. It cleanses the airways, prevents the accumulation of mucus, allows better and deeper breathing and increases the activity of the defense system.

Countless scientific studies have proven to us that nature offers excellent solutions, we just need to know how to use them. The astonishing synergy of plant substances cannot yet be achieved by artificially produced substances, and to believe that we could do without nature would be a great misconception. Plants have naturally developed a large number of phyto-protective substances or phytonutrients that help them cope with fungal and bacterial infections and allow them to overcome daily stresses. If we eat plant foods, we also consume certain active and protective micro and macro elements that play a significant role in the prevention of various types of diseases and health protection.
