The many benefits of honey

Honey is not only versatile to use, but it is in many ways a beneficial product. Honey contains 70 % of sugars out of which the majority are fructose and glucose, which are both simple sugars. Glucose absorbs into the body quickly and provides a quick energy boost whereas fructose absorbs more slowly and keeps the blood sugar levels even for a long time. These properties make honey an excellent source of energy to be enjoyed during a long-lasting performance.

Honey is also well known as an antibacterial ingredient which supports the immune system. Honey contains protective nutrients such as vitamins, flavonoids, enzymes and minerals. Honey is nature's own medicine which is often enjoyed during flu for example, due to its antibacterial effects.
