I just read a topic about this honey called Yemen Sidr Honey. The topic mentioned that this honey is reputed to have many medicinal benefits and has an unusually high level of antioxidants. I also read that Sidr Honey increases sexual potency and helps with conception.

I googled the name of this honey,they sell each 1 kg for about $160  shocked

Why this honey is expensive? have anyone of you tried this honey before?
I want to try it, but I want to see if somebody had it before? Does it deserve this much?

Waiting for your responses.

Thanks

It comes from the Hadramaut Mountains in the Southwestern Arabian Peninsula, where it is harvested only twice per year. The honey is from bees who feast only on the pollen of the Sidr tree, considered by many to be a holy tree and is one of the most resilient, ancient tree varieties in the area. Sidr honey is reputed to have many medicinal benefits ...

The original poster posts similar crap in other bee forums.  Don't bother to answer this.  You are wasting your time.
