Today’s health tip: Benefits of Honey


Honey is thick, sweet liquid made by honeybees. It is low in vitamins and minerals but may be high in some plant compounds.

Honey contains a number of antioxidants, including phenolic compounds like flavonoids.

However, it also raises blood sugar levels. So it cannot be considered healthy for people with diabetes.

Eating may lead to modest reductions in blood pressure, an important risk factor for heart disease.

Honey seems to have a positive effect on cholesterol levels. It leads to modest reductions in total and “bad” LDL cholesterol while raising “good” HDL cholesterol.

The antioxidants in it have been linked to beneficial effects on heart health, including increased blood flow to your heart and a reduced risk of blood clot formation.
