According to our friends over at Health.com, HONEY has so many health benefits and even doctors highly recommend it.
Honey may help treat upper respiratory tract infections (URI). In a new paper in the journal BMJ Evidence-Based Medicine, Oxford University researchers looked at 14 previously published studies related to the effectiveness of honey for the relief of URI symptoms. They found that compared to usual treatments (like over-the-counter meds and antibiotics), honey improved both cough frequency and severity, it and may serve as an inexpensive alternative to antibiotics.
Honey could also fight Metabolic Syndrome. Honey’s antioxidative properties also help to reduce oxidative stress, one of the central mechanisms in MetS. In a nutshell, oxidative stress is an imbalance between the production of cell-damaging free radicals and the body's ability to counter their harmful effects. For these reasons, researchers conclude that there is strong potential for honey to be integrated into the management of MetS, both preventatively and therapeutically. Honey may help prevent artery hardening. Studies show that honey contains over 180 substances—including natural sugars as well as a plethora of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. Researchers conclude that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds in honey, in addition to its ability to counter oxidative stress, are the key factors responsible for its protective benefits.
Honey may also support a healthy gut and provides nutrients. In addition to its natural sugar and antioxidants, honey contains some nutrients. For example, while the amounts are small per serving, 31 minerals have been found in honey—including all of the major minerals, such as phosphorus, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Honey also contains approximately 600 volatile compounds that are thought to contribute to its potential biomedical effects.
