Benefits of Honey for Health

  • Heals skin wounds & burns
    After application of honey to wounds and infections, the number of inflammatory cells was shown to be reduced, suggesting honey’s benefits in wound treatment applications (Molan, 2002).
    Honey has been used frequently as a topical treatment on skin wounds, burns and abrasions (Molan, 2001).
    Darker honeys generally have been shown to exhibit stronger antimicrobial capacities (Alvarez-Suarez, 2010).
  • Antidiabetic Properties
    The use of honey in Type I and Type II diabetes is associated with significantly lower glycemic index than with glucose or sucrose in normal diabetes. Due to the low glycemic index of the honey, it helps to reduce the absorption of digested food (Arcot et al. 2005).
  • Good for the heart
    Natural wild honey may exert its cardioprotective and therapeutic effects against epinephrine-induced cardiac disorders and vasomotor dysfunction directly, via its very pronounced total antioxidant capacity and its great wealth of both enzymatic and nonenzymatic antioxidants involved in cardiovascular defense mechanisms (Rakha et al. 2008).
