10 Surprising Health Benefits Of Honey by FRUTVEGS: 1:55am On Nov 03
First off, honey is absorbed into the body slower than refined sugar which means it has a lower glycemic index. This slower absorption rate gives you longer lasting energy and less of a blood sugar spike,which is easier on your body and digestive system. Honey also contains vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C, folate, Vitamin B5, calcium, zinc, iron just to name a few. Whereas sugar doesn’t contain any of these vitamin benefits! Finally, bees themselves add to the health properties in honey. Bees depositan array of beneficial probiotics, making honey a possible digestive aid. We could go on, but you get the idea. When it comes to health, honey wins every time.

Since ancient times, honey has been used as both a food and a medicine.

It’s very high in beneficial plant compounds and offers several health benefits. Honey is particularly healthy when used instead of refined sugar, which is 100% empty calories.

Here are the top 10 health benefits of honey.


1. Nutritionally, 1 tablespoon of honey (21 grams) contains 64 calories and 17 grams of sugar, including fructose, glucose, maltose and sucrose. It contains virtually no fiber, fat or protein. It also contains trace amounts — under 1% of the RDI — of several vitamins and minerals, but you would have to eat many pounds to fulfill your daily requirements. Where honey shines is in its content of bioactive plant compounds and antioxidants. Darker types tend to be even higher in these compounds than lighter types Honey is thick, sweet liquid made by honeybees. It is low in vitamins and minerals but may be high in some plant compounds.


2. Honey contains a number of antioxidants, including organic acids and phenolic compounds like flavonoids. Antioxidants have been linked to reduced risk of heart attacks, strokes and some types of cancer. They may also promote eye health.

3. It contains virtually no fiber, fat or protein. It also contains trace amounts — under 1% of the RDI — of several vitamins and minerals, but you would have to eat many pounds to fulfill your daily requirements. Where honey shines is in its content of bioactive plant compounds and antioxidants. Darker types tend to be even higher in these compounds than lighter types.

4. Elevated triglycerides are a risk factor for heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Several studies show that honey can lower triglyceride levels, especially when used as a sugar substitute.

5. Again, honey is a rich source of phenols and other antioxidant compounds. Many of these have been linked to a reduced risk of heart disease. They may help the arteries in your heart dilate, increasing blood flow to your heart. They may also help prevent blood clot formation, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

6. Honey promotes burn and wound healing. Topical honey treatment has been used to heal wounds and burns since ancient Egypt and is still common today When applied to the skin, honey can be part of an effective treatment plan for burns, wounds and many other skin conditions. Honey is also an effective treatment for diabetic foot ulcers, which are serious complications that can lead to amputation.

7. For children over one year of age, honey can act as a natural and safe cough suppressant. Some studies show that it is even more effective than cough medicine. Nevertheless, honey should never be given to children under one year of age due to the risk for botulism.

8. Honey is a delicious, healthier alternative to sugar. Make sure to choose a high-quality brand, because some lower-quality ones may be mixed with syrup. Keep in mind that honey should only be consumed in moderation, as it is still high in calories and sugar. The benefits of honey are most pronounced when it is replacing another, unhealthier sweetener. At the end of the day, honey is simply a “less bad” sweetener than sugar and high-fructose corn syrup.

9. Raw honey may help alleviate your allergies. Raw, unpasteurized honey contains trace amounts of local pollen, which may help desensitize allergic reactions.

10. It has a long shelf life.

Hi there, how do you strengthen immune defenses today in the covid-19 era?

To boosts ones immunity, there are 5 steps one needs to take.
1. You need to detoxify your body.
2. You need to alkalize your body.
3. You need to nourish your body.
4. You need to oxygenate your body.
5. Get adequate sleep.
If you can understand and able to do all these 5 things above, automatically, your immunity is secured. And yes, you need to be careful about what you take inside of you like the kind of juices, herbs, spices, smoothies, salad u take to detoxify the body likewise the kind of nuts, herbs and fruits you take to alkalize your body, and by knowing the one you need to use to detoxify and alkalize, the body will get nourished.
