Benefits of eating honey everyday
If you are thinking about returning to nature in your everyday life, why not begin with nature itself in your daily food intake?
We tend to get sick and tired of concrete and lifestyle that makes us prisoners of work and modern consumption. But, how healthy is that?
Let me get back on the topic and say that bees swallow, digest and regurgitate nectar to make honey; this nectar contains almost 600 compounds. This is nature in its essence.
What is honey good for?
You might ask yourself what is honey good for and is it truly a necessity in your kitchen. We can tell you that it really is one of the power foods and one of the oldest sweeteners on Earth. There are many benefits of taking honey daily and we will try to mention some of them to get you thinking about widening the usage of this liquid gold as both food and medicine.
Honey is strong energy booster
Since it is a great natural source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to our bodies, honey is known for its effectiveness in instantly boosting the performance by preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose in honey is easily absorbed and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy.
Honey is brain booster
It is brain booster due to its natural antioxidants and other properties which prevent cognitive decline and dementia. It is optimum fuel for the brain because it enhances memory and circulation of your brain. Honey reduces stress and brings about restful sleep which takes us to the next feature of this valuable food: curing insomnia!
Could you believe that something from your kitchen can cure this ‘modern-day illness’?
Super-food honey is said to contain the sleep-inducing amino acid tryptophan – a hormone which promotes relaxation by signaling the brain ‘it’s time to sleep’. Why take pills when there is a spoon of nature around?
Honey is also a promising anti-cancer agent!
It possesses carcinogen-preventing and anti-tumor properties and thus is curative. Scientists have found floral flavonoids in honey. These tiny traces of bioflavonoids, generally known as antioxidants, have powerful influences when entered into the body’s cells. Honey daily intake helps with the prevention and can be used as part of the anti-tumor diet and healthy lifestyle.
Its antioxidants and anti-bacterial properties can help you stay healthy and fight diseases. Some varieties of honey possess large amounts of friendly bacteria. This includes up to 6 species of lactobacilli and 4 species of bifidobacteria. This may explain many of the mysterious therapeutic properties of honey.
What can a more woman want than beauty and health?
We would like to the end to give you some ‘wonderful’ reasons for benefits of honey, not only medical ones. Different kinds of honey have different flavonoid profiles, depending on the floral source of the nectar. Its anti-bacterial qualities are particularly useful for the skin, and, when used with the other ingredients, can also be moisturizing and nourishing!
For a powerful home beauty treatment for which you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already, there are many recipes for making facial masks.
