When it comes to being healthy, we all know the basics. We should exercise on a regular basis, eat vegetables and fruits often enough, avoid sugar and alcohol…
But there are other things in life that can improve our overall well-being that are generally left ignored. A good example is honey. Research indicates that it can actually help you lose weight, lower cholesterol, and more.
Get glowing skin
Honey can be a good ally for those who are looking for an excellent and natural skin care. Studies have shown that honey has antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects – which are all great for a healthy and clear skin.
We all know that to lose weight, you should avoid carbs. Although this may be true to some extent, it’s not applicable when it comes to honey. That’s because honey has a different effect on your body than most carbohydrates.
In fact, some studies have indicated it can boost your metabolism and help with losing weight.
Reduce your cholesterol
If you need to lower your cholesterol levels, give honey a chance. At least that’s what science says. A study published in 2011 indicated that honey has a very significant positive effect on lowering cholesterol, and thus, may help to reduce cholesterol.
Keep a strong heart
More studies have shown that honey can prevent heart disease. That’s because it is a great source of antioxidants, which are responsible for fighting oxidative stress and inflammation, common causes of several cardiovascular diseases.
Improve your memory
If you want to keep your mind sharp, honey might be your new best friend. Research has concluded that after eating honey regularly, people were able to remember things better. The effect is probably linked to the calcium in honey being easily driven to the brain.
Get better sleep
Before going to bed, have some honey and you’ll sleep better. That’s what researchers concluded in 2012. According them, by eating just 10 grams of honey about half an hour before bed, you can improve your sleep.
Get rid of an upset stomach
For those who suffer from indigestion and reflux, honey can be an excellent ally. That’s what one research article says. It has been shown that honey can be beneficial for your stomach and esophagus.
Just feel better
Researchers say honey has several benefits for your nervous system. This is because your neurons need a great deal of glucose to function properly, and honey is an amazing source of glucose.
