This thick, sweet liquid we get from bees has been around since time in memorial and was used as both food and in medicine. Due to its consolidated mixture of plant compounds, its health benefits are numerous. Here we discuss just a few.
- High Nutrient Content
Bees swarm their environment from nectar to nectar collecting this natural sugar in a process we can never emulate but only appreciate. Through this process of nectar digestion and regurgitation, bees produce honey which they store. Nutritionally, honey contains no fats or proteins and is low in vitamins and minerals but very high in natural plant compounds, all which are good for the body.
- Honey Helps Lower Blood Pressure
Lower blood pressure lessens the risk for chronic heart diseases, and honey has been shown to play a role in that, the more reason you need to regularly eat honey.
- Improves Cholesterol
One of the most interesting attributes that has been shown to exist in honey is the ability to lower cholesterol. By having a positive effect on a process known as atherosclerosis (the potentially dangerous buildup of fats inside arteries) it helps to control the chances of heart attacks and stroke.
- It Helps To Heal Wounds
Applying honey to injured skin is known to having healing effects. In studies done in recent times, it was shown to have treatment effects for burns and other varying skins conditions. It is even more effective to treat foot ulcers.
