Honey is a sweet, viscous food substance produced by bees and some related insects. Bees produce honey from the sugary secretions of plants (floral nectar) or other insects (aphid honeydew) through regurgitation, enzymatic activity, and water evaporation. Honey is stored in wax structures called honeycombs. The variety of honey produced by honey bees (the genus Apis) is the best-known, due to its worldwide commercial production and human consumption. Honey is collected from wild bee colonies, or from hives of domesticated bees, a practice known as beekeeping. Lets mynutrisi talk about the benefits of honey.
Benefits of Honey Despite of Its Supreme Sweet Taste
Preventing cancer and heart disease:
Honey contains flavonoids, antioxidants that help reduce the risk of some types of cancer and heart disease.
Reduces ulcer and other gastrointestinal disorders.
Recent research shows that honey treatments can help problems like ulcers and bacterial gastroenteritis.
Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal
“All the antibacterial honey because the bees produce enzymes that make hydrogen peroxide,” said Peter Molan, director of the Honey Research Unit at Waikato University in New Zealand.
Improve sports athlete performance.
Ancient Olympic athletes will eat honey and dry fig trees to improve their performance. This has now been confirmed by modern studies showing that it is more in maintaining the glycogen level and increases recovery time than other sweeteners.
Reduce cough and irritation of the throat
Honey helps relieve cough. In a study of 110 children, a single dose of honey is only effective as a single dextromethorphan dose in relieving cough at night and allowing proper sleep.
So now, what are you waiting anymore? Lets take a tea spoon of honey everyday for your health.
