Benefits of honey for detoxification

What makes honey so special?

Honey contains specific nutrients, such as antioxidants, amino acids, and vitamins, that can make it a healthful addition to the diet.  Honey naturally contains sugar. A little more than half of the sugar in honey is fructose.  One tablespoon or 21 grams of raw honey approximately contains 64 calories and 16 g of sugar.  Honey may offer a protective effect against diabetes and some types of honey may help improve cholesterol levels.

People who have diabetes or who are on sugar-restricted diets may choose to eat honey in moderation to avoid significant changes in their blood sugar levels. Pure honey has a medium effect on blood sugar levels.

The benefits of honey for detoxification

Honey is extremely beneficial for those looking to increase their detoxification capabilities.  Raw honey has been used for centuries in order induce sleep, the majority of the body’s detoxification processes occurs when we are asleep, through its hypotonic action on the body.   Honey contains a number of important antioxidants, including flavonoids, organic acids, and phenolic compounds. Honey has been shown to increase the antioxidant activity in your blood.  Antioxidants have been linked to reduced risk of certain types of cancer, heart disease, and stroke.  Because it’s a natural source of hydrogen peroxide, honey has been used as a natural antibiotic and skin protectant for centuries. Additionally, honey’s high sugar content helps ward off bacterial growth, and its low pH level works to pull moisture away from bacteria (which helps kill it).

Those looking to protect their liver from environmental toxins and pollutants should consider taking honey daily.  Its powerful medicinal antioxidant properties help protect the liver from oxidative damage.  Researchers have also found that consumption of raw honey leads to increased levels of nitric oxide in bodily fluids which reduces liver enzymes such as AST and ALT in the blood.  It’s been shown that elevated levels of serum ALT and AST activities indicate liver damage.  As a result, raw honey makes an excellent choice for anyone looking to detoxify and protect the function of their liver.
