honey and its effects
The most important things in brief
- There has long been no doubt that honey is healthy.
- But what exactly makes this natural product so valuable?
- A number of factors play a role in this context - read more about them in this post.
- Heart, cough, wound healing: These are just a few aspects that honey has a positive influence on.
Bee populations are at serious risk - a headline that no one took seriously a few years ago, but which is unfortunately true. Many processes in nature depend on the well-being of these insects. Even their product, honey, is not only a sweetener for humans, but also has almost magical powers and generally has a good effect on us. But first to the somewhat disadvantageous properties.
Honey - in bulk (very) healthy
For many foods, it is the quantity that counts. This is especially true for honey. Since honey contains a lot of fructose and can also easily stick to the teeth, the risk of caries is even higher than with the consumption of brown or white sugar. Too much honey is bad for your teeth. People with diabetes must also exercise caution when consuming honey because this bee product also has an impact on blood sugar levels.
But it is still a food that comes from nature. Purines are found in honey just as little as cholesterol or even fat. If you want to lose weight, you should avoid honey, after all, there are more than 300 calories in 100 grams. In addition, the fructose it contains further stimulates the appetite. So should you keep your hands off honey? Absolutely not - just read on.
The positive effect of honey should not be underestimated
Because honey has some very good effects on the human body. The antioxidants contribute to this, such as plant substances, enzymes and phenols, but also flavonoids and organic acids. This can reduce the risk of some types of cancer, as well as the risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke.
Honey can also suppress the "bad" LDL cholesterol and, in return, noticeably increase the proportion of the "good" HDL cholesterol. Those who give up sugar completely in favor of honey may benefit from improved blood lipid levels, which in turn reduces the risk of heart disease.
Also good for coughs and wound healing
People have known for a long time that honey is worth its weight in gold when it comes to coughing. Even with an approaching cold, honey unfolds its virus-killing effect. But even with a dry cough, a spoonful of pure or dissolved in tea works wonders. In children older than one year, honey is often even more effective than the usual cough medicines. The same goes for a sore throat. In addition, the bee product can have a calming effect on children, which leads to better sleep - and thus to a faster recovery.
Perhaps when you think of honey, you don't immediately think of external wounds, such as abrasions or burns on the skin. The fact is, however, that the product obtained from flower nectar often achieves better healing progress on burns, inflammations and abrasions than commercially available ointments or antibiotics. This effect is attributed to the antibacterial properties of honey, which can also have an effect in the fight against herpes, hemorrhoids or psoriasis.
Unique honey from Australia
You probably know that: you are standing in front of the shelf in the supermarket and want to buy honey - but the selection is so enormous that you are overwhelmed by the range. You have it easier with Kanela.

There the bee colonies of HONEY FOR LIFE are currently in use in chains of national parks and nature reserves.
