Honey is tasty and sweet and resides in many people’s cabinets but is hardly used for other than a crunchy slice of toast. As the end product of a beehive, it contains no fiber, fat or protein and here’s why you should incorporate it more into your daily food intake.
- Rich in Antioxidants
High quality honey comes with high quality benefits, and these include organic acids and other antioxidants. Antioxidants have been associated with reducing the risk of heart attacks, strokes and even types of cancer.
- Lower blood pressure
Blood pressure is pressing factor that leads to heart disease, something honey can help alleviate. Human and animal trials have proven that there have been small reductions in blood pressure from eating honey.
- Improve Cholesterol Levels
High cholesterol is a red flag for heart disease where the fatty build-up in our arteries can prove fatal as it leads to strokes and attacks. Several studies have shown that honey can reduce levels of cholesterol and improve good HDL cholesterol.
This delicious sweet product is an easy alternative for many sweet snacks. It is important to chose high quality honey in order to trigger its health benefits.
