Health Benefits of Honey

Health Benefits of Honey

Natural energy booster
Honey is a naturally high source of carbohydrates and a readily available source of energy. It is made up of approximately 80 % glucose and fructose and up to 20 % water.[1] It is particularly beneficial when you need to boost your energy levels before or during a long workout or endurance race.

Supplies antioxidants
Natural, unpasteurized honey supplies a valuable range of antioxidants, including flavonoids, phenolic acids, vitamin C, vitamin E compounds, and more. The combined antioxidant effects of these compounds can provide significant benefits by helping to fight free radicals and reduce oxidative stress.

Source of trace nutrients
The balance of nutrients in unprocessed honey varies with its origin and the plants from which it was made. Overall, honey is a reliable source of trace nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids.[2]
