The Sweet Benefits of Eating Honey - 3rd Week

By Genevieve Cunningham

Since the disadvantages of eating sugar seem to be growing every day, many people are turning to other forms of sweetener. While there are plenty of artifical options, those seeking natural alternatives often turn to honey. But, is honey really a better option than sugar? It’s calorie dense and super sweet, so it must be bad, right? Maybe not. When eaten in moderation, honey actually brings about some nice benefits. Check out these sweet benefits of adding this treat to your regular menu.

It May Prevent Disease

Because of the high amount of antioxidants found in natural honey, it’s excellent for boosting the immune system and helping your body fight disease. The antioxidants can help protect your cells from foreign invaders and encourage them to multiply properly. Some of the diseases it may protect your body from include certain kinds of cancer and heart disease. What a sweet way to keep yourself healthy and strong.

It’s Soothing to the Throat

Honey is thick and calming. When it goes down your throat, it can provide a layer of protection, soothing soreness. Perhaps this is why a simple mix of hot water, a little honey, and a dash of lemon juice is one of the most popular recommendations for scratchy throats.

It Gives You Energy

Even though it’s natural, honey is definitely packed full of sugar. While this might seem like a bad thing, it has potential to be really good. Why is this so good? Because your body uses this sugar as energy. When you’re feeling tired, just add honey to your daily menu, and you may see a rise in energy not only immediately, but one that lasts all day long.

It Might Help With Allergies

This one is controversial. Some claim it’s a miracle, while others claim it’s nonsense. The thought is that local honey, meaning one made by local bees, contains pollen that can actually protect you from allergies throughout the season. Whether you believe it or not, considering the other wonderful benefits that come with it, it might be worth a try. Just buy your honey from a local farmer or the farmer's market to potentially enjoy this benefit.

If you need a natural and healthier alternative to sugar, give honey a try. Not only does it taste delicious, but it can bring some healthy benefits to your body as well. Just eat in moderation, and you can enjoy your sweet treat without any guilt and with lots of benefits in tow.
