Health Benefits of Honey

Health Benefits of Honey
The benefits of honey go beyond its great taste.

A great natural source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to our bodies. Its natural fruit sugars play an important role in preventing fatigue during exercise. It is known that honey has also been found to keep levels of blood sugar fairly constant compared to other types of sugar:
1. Next time before you go for a workout, take a spoon of honey to enable you to go for the extra mile.
2. If you are feeling low and lethargic in the morning, try honey. Spread it on hot toast or replace the sugar in your tea with it for a refreshing surge of energy.
3. If your kids are finding hard to cope with the physical strain from the buzzing activities at school, prepare them some sandwiches with honey to make sure they have enough energy to sustain through the day.
