Honey- Health Benefits

    Email Pin It

If you like your tea or coffee really sweet, you should know what effects sugar has on our body? Have you ever thought about honey?

Honey provides the sugar fix, and it is packed antioxidants and is believed to enhance calcium absorption and contain a number of other minerals and vitamins.

Something to note about commercially sold honey is that it might has sugar as a main ingredient, which defeats the purpose of consuming honey. So, ensure that you review the ingredient list. In our experience, the Khadi Ashram honey is quite pure. If you don’t like the flavour of regular honey, there are many varieties of honey available in the market, like buckwheat honey, blueberry honey, etc. The types of flowers the bees pollinate from determines the flavour and colour of honey.

Besides all these benefits, honey is claimed to be a natural remedy and has been used as medicine for thousands of years. At Fitho, we truly believe that natural foods are better than processed foods and practice the same. So next time you have that sweet cup of tea, enjoy it with honey. Use honey to replace sugar in desserts, swap pancake syrup with honey, add some to your oatmeal or peanut butter sandwich for the extra energy. Even the Kama Sutra uses honey but we won’t get into those details here :)

As you see, its uses are limited by your imagination. Remember, honey still contains sugar based calories, so go easy.

    Please refer to the ingredient list. If it contains sugar, then you should avoid it.

    One thing of interest is that different types of honey have properties that improve your health in different ways. The darker honeys like buckwheat honey have strong antioxidant properties.

    Some research has shown that certain types of honey are good for wound healing.

    Some researchers from Penn State have recently shown that Buckwheat honey is better then the OTC children’s cough medicines for children’s cough. There is a web site that talks about this, and gives lots of research to help people understand how honey effects health.

    Thanks for you blogs,

    Daddydoctor

    its hard to to tell the difference just by looking, so its best to go with known brands, that provide pure honey.
