Honey is a sweet fluid. Honey is good for health, it is not to be replaced in place of the medicine prescribed by the doctor. At best honey could be used along with the prescribed medicine. The data from this study says that even though honey is sweet, if taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it does not harm diabetic patients.
Ayurvedic as well as Yunani medicine have been using honey as a vital medicine for centuries. Scientists of today also accept honey as a “Ram Ban” (very effective) medicine for all kinds of diseases. Honey can be used without any side effects for any kind of diseases.
There are many scientific research that shows honey is a wonderful food. Previous studies from the University of California, Davis, reported in March 2004 that daily consumption of raw honey may raise polyphenolic antioxidant levels in blood and reduce the risk of damage by free radicals.
A spoonful of honey a day could reduce the risks of some cancers, high blood pressure and stomach infections.
The data from this study suggests that honey contains health-boosting compounds, including oligosaccharides, which help to stimulate the levels of beneficial bacteria in the colon. Natural honey can contain high concentrations of flavanoids and other anti-oxidants. Other health benefits come from the pollen content, which contains protein and carbohydrates, vitamin C, vitamin E, B-group vitamins and minerals.
Honey should be organically labeled if possible, for these products go to greater lengths to insure the bees are kept clear of potential toxins and that they are not fed refined sugars. Also, keep in mind some unpasturized honey contains a type of bacteria that is harmless to older children and adults but may be dangerous to babies. Also make sure you only buy cold-pressed honey because heated honey contains additives, so it may not be able to retain its healing properties. So, what are you waiting for? Let honey be a part of your daily healthy living!
