Honey: A true superfood
I don’t know anyone that doesn’t love honey. It’s a perfect addition to a slice of toast or to make a bowl of porridge more interesting.
But, what you might not know is that there are plenty of reasons to increase your honey intake. Indeed, the golden syrup has been described by some as a powerfood it’s such a good ingredient.
And if you don’t believe us, the power of honey even got a special mention in the Bible, with King Solomon urging his son to “eat thou honey, for it is good”.
If you need a little more convincing, here are the ways honey can give your overall health a boost.
Honey has long been used to treat coughs and sore throats. Teamed with hot lemon it’s also used to help soothe symptoms of cold and flu. The use of honey as a medicine throughout history illustrates how many people have had faith in its healing powers.
A study published on The Internet Journal of Academic Physician Assistants found that buckwheat honey is more or just as effective as over-the counter medications containing dextromethorphan for treating nocturnal coughs in children.
In addition, honey has been found to prove effective in the treatment of ulcers and bacterial gastroenteritis.
Honey is antibacterial, antifungal and loaded with vitamins, minerals and enzymes so is the perfect way to give yourself a boost every day.
Research from 2002 revealed that honey, among other things such as almonds and fruit, was beneficial to help lower cholesterol and lose weight. It was found in two separate 2002 studies that honey contains many antioxidants that help combat the free radicals that can damage cells.
Darker honey was found to have more antioxidants than lighter varieties, increasing its health-boosting benefits.
Indeed, as high cholesterol is a key risk factor in heart disease, regular intake of honey as part of a balanced diet could help keep your heart healthy.
And there’s more
Although these are the big health boosters, honey has also been found to be a natural way to increase energy, soothe indigestion and clear skin.
