5 Health Benefits of Honey
1. It’s a natural way to enhance energy.
Need a morning pick-me-up or extra lift before a workout? Don’t turn to addictive energy drinks. Instead, try a spoonful of honey. Its natural sugars, both glucose and fructose, are absorbed by the body quickly—giving you an instant boost.
2. It can soothe a sore throat.
Add honey, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt to warm water and either gargle or sip to ease the inflammation associated with a cold or flu. In addition to relief, honey can also kill certain bacteria that’s at the root of the infection.
3. It will help skin stay supple.
Due to its thick texture and ability to absorb moisture from the air, honey is a useful moisturizer. Over time, mature skin becomes thin and dry. Using beauty products enriched with honey helps hydrate and restore elasticity.
4. It can heal wounds, burns, and cuts.
Honey has long been used as a natural first-aid treatment, thanks to its antibacterial properties. Among its benefits: It helps keep wounds clean and infection-free, reduces swelling and scarring, and acts as an anti-inflammatory.
5. It’s the healthiest sweetener.
While it contains more calories than table sugar, honey (in moderation) has its benefits. Because it’s sweeter than regular sugar, you don’t need as much. And, in studies involving both healthy subjects and those with high cholesterol, natural honey reduced both total cholesterol and blood sugar by 6%-8%.
